I'm the Francis and my girlfriend is the Zoey. I'd love some critiques on how were doing and what we can do to improve. These were taken at a photoshoot yesterday.

I'm sorry if this isn't the proper format...

I am not sure what your goals are with these photos. Generally, I think the poses seem just like poses without the feeling of purpose. Looking away from the lens more often will help. Tensing up the muscles and looking more ready for anything will help in the perfomances.

Sometimes the camera is near eye-level, which is fine on tighter lenses getting from the waist up or closer, but full-body shots get disproportionate when you compare the head size with the feet. Either back away and shoot with a more telephoto lens, or lower the camera.

Be more selective on your compositions. Consider more carefully what you want and don't want in your frame. Avoid bright, over exposed areas in your frame.

Stand with your feet more apart when aiming a gun, allowing for the kick of the gun that will happen when firing a real gun. Avoid blocking your face with your own hand or gun.
