D. Warren, some nice shots. I like #3 and #6 but need more light on her face from the short side. In #5 I would rotate her 90 deg. and shoot parallel to that black railing to get cleaner back ground. Sit lower and shoot.

Agreed, nice series. In addition to Bobby's comments, I thought the skin tone in #1 looks a little cool, but I'm on my work monitor, so I might be wrong about that.

I was very reluctant to post this First shot but thought what the heck. The kid loved it and had to have it so, i didnt delete it when i showed it to him in the viewfinder. Got home and it had alot of motion blur. So i put some HDR proceesing on it and gave it a go. Was dark outside and he surprised the heck out of me when he pulled of the shot. His mom tossed him the ball and he jumped up and kicked the darn thing as you see it.

I love that first shot! Way to take something that may have been a throwaway and turn it into something unique. I just wish the shot was with him facing you, that would have been killer!

I just got the prints back today. I put some grunge to it in Topaz and it actually looks very cool. Client loved it so i guess thats all that matters.

Nothing to be afraid of Arkansas Bred. They look great.

To add something constructive I think they would look better with a tighter crop. They are getting pretty close to being cut off at the waist and elbows. Try to crop in between the joints. So #1 I'd crop from the bottom right and #2 from the bottom left.

Thanks for the feedback. I've been doing product photography for a couple of years and now I'm trying to branch out into Seniors so posing and cropping are my biggest hurdles. I'll give it a shot and see if I can improve it.

HEY Peeps

Denny MFG has a great special right now for solid color freedom cloth backdrops. I just ordered Brilliant red,,,,,10x20 for $89.00:cool:

8x10's or 10x8's are $69.00-- Great for headshots and 3/4 shots

cool prices. I would look at the samples with the models in the shots. Some of the colors dont photograph as shown. Thats probaly why they did that. Light grey photographs TAN,,,,,YUK:cry:

Here is the link
