Although, I’m not sure what you’re talking about when you say you’re looking at my “portfolio” album as none of them are named “portfolio”. All of my albums are named for the subjects. I can only assume that you misread “profile pictures”.  Thank you for your detailed descriptions of how each shot could be improved.

Yes, I misread.

 

As I said, I drink a lot before giving CC! 🙂

I hope it somewhat valuable.

 

 

IHF: Yes, this one has very flat lighting. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=286209438127338&set=a.286207998127482.66918.135543696527247&type=3&theater

Photography takes a 3D object and turns it into 2D from a single perspective. You can make 2D objects look much more 3D by using shadows. Flat lighting has very few shadows to give subtle 3D information that you can incorporate. This is especially important on portraits, but a lot of fashion photography does use somewhat flat lighting.
