I really love the pop and tones in the color photos. Like he said the B&W is oddly out of place amongst the wonderful color.

Beautiful! I love the colors! Just curious, did you use your 135L for any of these?

Keep it up as this is exactly the type of senior portraits that today's seniors apparantly want. Flat lit, non-posed, "stand over there while I shoot a couple hundred" type images in the hopes that one will "turn out." Most of these have over or underexposure and no regard to white balance or blown out highlights. Gone forever are the well lit and well posed images of the past like I shoot. Funny, when I shoot the above type of images all I get are "they look like snapshots, I wanted some real portraits" type of comments.

On the contrary, the b+w is the best for me. She seems almost like a different person in b+w. And not crazy about all the off level, angled photos. Don't think it adds anything to the photos.

I am kind of confused it seems almost as a jack ass comment, it comes across saying that I have not a lick of skill. I am not sure what you are talking about. For your information I dont say stand over there while I shoot a couple hundred images and hope one turns out well there is much more than that. Oh ya and I am sure I shoot in auto mode and let the camera do all the work :rolleyes:

Drozz119 -

I don't even live in Logansport any more IN is so lame. I moved back to the St. Louis area. Seriously though I dont know what his deal is. He must want an award because he is more than likely mid 40's -> late 50's and has a studio and all of his images look the same. That must be his style and this is my style if senior and parents didn't like it they would not hire me so he needs to stop trying to make an a-hole of him self and either post something to build off of or not post at all.

I'm with Benji on this one. I liked number one, but the luminosity of the greens could have been dialed back in CS5 RAW. You cut her elbow off in #2. There is too much dead space on the top of #3 and #4 is a flatly lit, snap shot. #5 could be improved with a tighter crop and burning those blown out highlights. The busy background spoils #6. #7 could benefit from a tighter crop and the tilt of #8 just doesn't work.

You should pay attention and learn from Benji. He is an accomplished photographer who knows what he's talking about.

Thanks for the kind comments but people no longer want well lit, well exposed images with good white balance. Since I "know what I am talking about" my suggestion to you guys is to slap a 580EX on the hot shoe and use the spray and pray method of shooting as this is what sells today. Don't worry about blown out highlights in the background, blown out skin or hair on the subject, or chopped off fingers, hands, arms, or feet. If the subject is flat to the camera and looks like she is 50 pounds overweight, great! That is not a problem as this is what sells today. Shoot is Jpeg, shoot 1000 shots and don't do any Photoshop work to them as people like the natural look of wrinkles, blackheads, pimples and bags under the eyes. Never look at the LCD screen and never use a hand held meter. F/8 at 1/60 is the correct exposure for everything. Don't ever touch the hair, the messier the better. Always shoot at least one where her boobs are about 95% showing by standing above her and shooting straight down while she leans forward.

Benji
