What kind of feedback are you specifically seeking? To me it's "just" a fan page that IMO could be more focused.

I checked out your personal site to see what you are about. After seeing you offer services (Portraits, Seinors, Events, E-sessions, wedding, and candids) I noticed you didn't mention any of that in your "about" section on FB.

To me your timeline is more of a random music & photo dump with barely any examples of the types of photography you offer as services on your site. I had to go all the way to the middle of June to really see a constant flow of people images.

Again, i'm not sure what kind of feedback you're looking for ???

Looking back, I definitely should have put more description into the OP.

Basically, I'm asking what I should do to make it more visually appealing/professional​.

As for my photos, my computer is currently out of commission so I am relegated to using my parents old desktop on which Photoshop barely runs - but I try and make due. Once my computer is back and ready to go I can go back and go through all the pictures I have stored and run them through CS5.

If you wanted to take a minute and go through my pics and give me some things I need to work on. Mostly the Senior pics and wall photos or the album titled sample.

Anything is appreciated.

Once I get home I will have to add the information that you spoke of.

Thanks!

Your watermark is extremely distracting from the photos. Pick a corner, make it some what small, and leave it as that. There is no point to take up almost half of the photo with your name.

For your portraits don't post so many of the same poses. I was looking at a set (Sioux) and the model was looking the other direction, but still in the same poses as the other two shots. I know you posted those a little while ago, though.

The set you took of "kelly" were good pose wise, you seem to have that done, which is extremely hard to communicate to models. When she was standing I noticed the volley ball court and it wasn't distracting but the one right next to it had the pole right next to her. Just pay attention to your background. That was the only one I saw like that so I'm not sure if you caught the mistake or you just happened to get move to another shot. Also some of her photos she looked to warm, it looked like your white balance was off.

You said you use photoshop to edit, but to be honest I can't really see much editing done to the photos. Practice editing your photos, look at videos on YouTube to see how to edit in photoshop or get lightroom.

If your computer doesn't work, wait to put images up. Doesn't look like a photog website to me. (fb site)
