Portrait of a girl with glasses (attempts:)

I really have to learn more about portraits…this is so difficult for me…we end up giggling like crazy and most of my photos are either blurrred, or there is something in the backround I don´t want there, the light is strange….oh well…

      These are very natural with a real sense of fun. I understand what you say about portraits - I avoid them - they never turn out how I imagine they will... these are great though

      Well, they are full of emotion, and giggling isn't a bad place to start. Portraits are extremely difficult, I agree, and very satisfying.

      One way to start is to ensure that the light comes from behind the photographer, not the subject, or from a side.
