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.

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.
