I am just too lazy to do the flickr thing tonight so here are a few links to some recent shoots if anyone is interested.

Is the photo on the wall composited from the same shoot or a previous shoot?

Yes...both of the BK images were from the same shoot. I worked on it alot trying to make it look "natural". The small one seemed to work rather well...the large one...yeah...not so much. Think I need to add some more blur to it and bring down the exposure a bit more. Any other thoughts?

Some nice stuff dwarrenr.

The light in the first one though not to much. I don't care for the shadow on her right eye caused by the back light. It's also putting a funny highlight on her nose. It's a shame because that in definitely the most flattering photo of her in this set.

Thanks Wamerrit...I almost deleted it...but for some reason...even after braking a rule by a brain fart...I still liked the image.

My thoughts were to add a drop shadow to the larger image, or maybe a "stroke" effect to provide the illusion that it is set into a frame. As it is now it's hovering. And yes, reduce the exposure, it doesn't match the surrounding lighting.

My son plays a baby grand and I'll be shooting some senior stuff soon so good to see some ideas :)

2013 Senior, Patrick arrived Sunday to 25-30 wind gusts, so I had some creative wind blocking to do. Not normally much of an issue with the guys...but he had quite a mop. :)

Here are a few from his session. Not real concerned if they look soft or not...they are sharp (uncompressed) on my screen, but I would appreciate CC on composition, color, processing, etc. Thanks!

This last one was a test shot that the lighting was a little off (I think I made it work with the B/W processing)...I ended up liking the unposed "pose" because it seemed to capture his personality...thoughts​?

Kyle, did you use a tilt shift lens or did you do a guassian blur layer with a gradient layer mask? :)

45 TSE. :)

composite. It doesn't look real at all to me. Not that I could do better.

Now that you mention it, I see what you mean.

My favorite. Expression goes a long way. I might try a tighter crop to get rid of some of that sky.

Cool..Im just experimenting with some of these digital files to see what they would look like and get some feedback from everyone.

Mike I really like the bkg here. I bet it was a little tough to make the comp considering her hair color. All in all I think it looks really good. In fact the only give away (and it's slight) the that little section going through the gray block- and seriously I have no idea what could be done to improve on it. I don't think any customer would ever notice it.

Thanks Jen,,, it was just for fun. Im looking into options for digital files. A lot cheaper to do a comp v/s buying a pile of backdrops.
