PESO Ward and Susan

Portraits are all about capturing emotion and you've done that well, 
especially the couples shots and those of Susan.  They give a sense of 
who they are and that they would be people one might want to know.

DISCLAIMER:  The following opinions may or may not be useful.

A couple of Ward - 11100 & 11195 - might have benefited from a little 
less fill light to get just a little more contrast between the shadows 
and the highlights.  I'm not sure the shape of his face works with 
hatchet lighting, as in 11212.  I think short lighting for his face 
shape may have worked better, at least for me, by turning his face more 
toward the main light camera left and adding some fill light slightly 
from camera right.

Sooner or later "different" scares people.
