I'm not missing film at all, partly for reasons evident in these shots.
With a dSLR and some patience I can review each shot after I take it, examine the composition and the exposure histogram, and tweak, tweak, tweak till I'm happier with it.
You got better results in terms of exposure/etc. than I believe I'd get out of film, so good job! Your subjects are generally just standing there, so these feel more like just snapshots than pictures that a random viewer will feel engaged by.
Some non-pro impressions:
- Relaxing: Highlights blown out, and taken too far away for such a passive pose. I'd like to be in close to see their face, rather than spend so much picture area on surroundings that don't add to the shot.
- Close-up: Nice to be in close and really see the eyes and face like this. A more interesting expression, and perhaps a bit more of the upper body, would add to it.
- Thinking: Best lighting contrast of the set and good distance from the subject. They're not emoting much, nor is the background really contributing, so it's a good shot from the perspective of camera settings but less so in terms of impact on the viewer.
- Yes: Cool outfit, good setting. Wooden pose. Shallower depth of field would help. I'd again suggest considering coming in closer to capture the face/upper body and sacrifice showing the shoes. Not much detail visible in the outfit. Not to get too fancy, but a reflector (which can be as simple as a white piece of cardboard) would help here to bounce some of that sunlight from off to either side and bring out detail.
Hope some of the ideas help - good luck!
