Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

Yes, I am lucky to have her as a model to practise on, but she is actually quite camera shy so hopefully the positive feedback here would make her open up more!

And the focal length is a bit wide for portraits, so there is a little wide angle distortion.

I agree - only learned recently that wide angles distort facial features. I used a Lumix FZ40 for these with 35mm-equivalent focal lengths of around 25-40mm. Is it true that you should go with as long a focal length as practical to shoot portraits? Why not at 50mm?
