I want everything you've got. Pose ideas, what i can do to get rid of the awful lighting...all of it!
What kind of camera are you using? Do you have control over depth-of-field?
I think one where she would be standing out on the tracks with the train out of focus in the background would be great. That would still keep the whole train in the picture, but you'd be able to fill the frame mostly with her. How it is now she kind of gets lost in the picture because the train is so large and overpowering.
Remember to keep the sun either to your side or back, but try not to put the subject with the sun behind them. On the first few there wouldn't have been lense glare if you were standing on the other side of the train and taking pictures from there.
Some other poses - laying on he belly with her feet up and her head on her hands, lying on her back on the deck while you climb up those rails and take the picture from above, leaning with her back against the train on the deck with her legs and feet propped up on whatever that front thing is (shot taken from the side or with you up on the deck). In the one I left here in your post, she could sit up top with her butt on the right side (where her elbow is) and her feet on the other side so her legs are bent and then her hands folded over her knees on top of one another with her head leaning on her arms. I hope that makes sense.
yeah, i understand what you mean. i was only using my kodak digital to kind of get a feel for how it will look and everything. once i get it good i will go out with my nikon and take better ones. since i got my digital i haven't used it much but money is so tight right now its just easier than getting film developed. i feel so dumb asking this but its been over a year: i want asmall aperature right?
I wanted to do some from the other side of the train but there is prickly weeds everywhere and i had shorts and flip flops on so i was jumping around as it was he he. thanks a lot!
What time of the day did you shoot these? I would suggest going closer to dusk to avoid the harsh sun, for the sake of your pics as well as your Sis, it's hard not to squint.
I wouldn't center her quite so much, think about the rule of thirds.
And I would prefer to see her in a plain shirt, but that's strictly JMO, the writing is a little distracting.
