    creampuff & night86mare: thanks for the tips & suggestions.. will read up & try to shoot more. maybe for the initial period i'll "emulate" certain photos that catch my eye. not easy when both the model & the photographer are complete noobs to portraiture.

    This is where I need help. Eyes getting old. Are the pics sharp? or FF or BF?

    Bro Felix, definitely BF or FF problem, or could be camera shake (SR off or too low shutter speed?) too.

    That DA40 is a sharp lens, and should produce much sharper pics than those.

    Try putting on tripod and see if the problem persists, otherwise try the focus correction on the K20D, you can correct for FF or BF in small steps IIRC. BTW, it didn't need any correction on my K20D, it was pretty sharp from the beginning itself.

    1st pic 1/6s
    2nd pic 1/4s
    3rd pic 1/15s
    4th pic 1/10s

    suggest you redo your test in better lighting or on a tripod, bcos it looks like camera shake to me, and at those shutter speeds it's no wonder.

    perhaps you could try printing out a focus test chart to confirm. http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/p...r-cameras.html

    Agree it looks more like camera shake. If you dun like tripod, u can try re-creating your test shots in a much brighter daytime, at a lower ISO ( some i saw is iso800 ) where there is less noise to diffuse the sharpness.

    I like this shot, but I feel can make the sepia effect better, also a bit more pp on the face, as the way the face is turned, that angle will make the lower chin look fatter. Also the shadow area can be improved, kinda hidding her beautiful eyes. Just my worthless 2cents.

    Did a 3min pp on this shot, hope you don't mind.

    thanks for yr advice wrt PP! regarding the sepia effect, i had a choice of several presets but i decided with this one.. so perhaps that's just an individual choice. but i agree with yr other points.
