Hello Everyone!

I'm to this forum but am LOVING it. I've only been doing photograhy for about 8 months, and would love some feedback on my work before I launch my website. This is a shoot I did last summer.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

Keep up the good work.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

Pretty good. I think you could make the top image even better by cropping to to the rule of thirds. Also, You also want female hands and fingers to look elegant. You normally do this by showing the the sides of the hands instead of the palms or back of the hands.

I really like the bottom one. You might want to see if you can crop it to the golden mean. You're almost there anyway.

These are beautiful just as they are.

Eight months, eh? Heck, I've been shooting for forty freekin' years and my work doesn't look this good.

Edit:
Maigan...I just looked at your FB. All photographers have a particular style that clicks with certain people. I love your work, the angles, crops.....I really like your stuff. At least to me you are damn good. Keep doing whatever it is that you are doing. I would change nothing. I am certain there are many "experts" that will try to tell you otherwise.

Good on you.


Remember what the DorMouse said.....feed your head.

looks good.
first pic is framed top heavy.
second pic is good..I think a framing wise...balance between the grass and sky would make this image.

Rookie is not used appropriately in your case. Quit using it. That's pro stuff there!
