I like #1. Hope in the last two years, you've learned how to switch focus points so you could have aimed lower in #2. ; )

Wow - I just love seeing Taylor - especially back before she chopped off half of her hair. It's so great that you posted these!

I really like the composition of #1. The foreground elements really help to support the subject, and provide a real "sense of place". .I do wonder, however, if there would have been a way to place Taylor off-center......perhaps to the right, so that the raised hand would balance the composition rather than (slightly) block a lear view to Taylor?

The EXIF does not give the focal length at which these were taken, although I assume you were shooting pretty wide if they were at f1.4. .Were you able to switch lenses and get any real close-ups of her (tight headshots)?

It's kind of a shame that she doesn't look like this anymore.....you got to capture her back when she was at her very best (aesthetically speaking).

The second photo in your second post is great, but I'm not really feeling the others.

She's great to shoot tho!

Im a huge Taylor fan(was also born in the same year as her so I kinda relate more I think).


These are from the Fearless Tour(era), so definitely a while back.


Thank you for sharing them!

You're completely wrong, as someone who's seen her live in the flesh right in front of me I can say she is insanely attractive. In the fearless era she was still a kid, she's a woman now.

Back when she was younger her face had a much more rounded, full look. Now her face and head is leaner and more angular. I do not find the "lean face look" to be attractive whatsoever....but show me a girl who has a full, rounded looking face and I think that is really hot. Taylor used to have that fuller face, and that is why for me she was at her very best back in her youth. I like what I like, you like what you like......don't tell me I am "wrong" when we are discussing something that is subjective.

How about you discuss the image and not the aesthetic of a girl's face/body. You're sounding really creepy.

I discuss and analyze, at length, the aesthetic nuances of the wild animals I photograph:

I pit one buck deer against another and examine the facial markings and the difference in coloration around the eyes, muzzle, and throat/chest patch. .I pay close attention to these aesthetic details, and I note the changes in the bucks when I see the same bucks year after year. Each buck will have certain years, or times in its lifecycle, when it is more attractive than it is at other times. .I center my photographic efforts around the times when the bucks are at their very best.

I analyze and discuss the plumage of male Northern Shovelers in January vs. their plumage a couple months later in March and April.

I discuss and analyze the relative facial proportions of a young Black Bear vs. a mature Black Bear (ears larger in relation to the overall head size, leaner, more slender muzzle in a young bear, compared to "smaller" ears and a fuller, more rounded muzzle in an adult bear).

In fact, the individual aesthetics of the subject is a big part of every wildlife and bird photo I take. . Why is it "creepy" or "wrong" to be just as interested in the individual aesthetics of a person, if they are the subject of a photo? . Photos can be used to document how things change over time. .A big part of any photo of Taylor Swift, or any other person, is what they looked like at the time the photo was taken - and therefore these aesthetics are a valid part of any discussion of those photos.

So you're comparing deer and birds to humans? It's creepy when an adult (I'm assuming) man is talking about how a woman looked better in her "youth".

As photographers we can't change how a person looks, it's our job to shoot in a way that enhances/highlights what we deem to be the positives, and downplay/hide the negatives. Instead of talking about how you find her to look better years ago, perhaps you could offer advice on what the photographer could do to get a better image.

That's just my two cents, you're very much entitled to yours.

Yes, absolutely. Deer, bears, and humans are all species of mammals. There are actually a lot of similarities between them, and these similarities lead to similarities in the way each of these species is most effectively photographed.

I did that - back in sentence 4 of post number 3.

Thank you. I respect your two cents' worth, and I hope and trust that you respect mine.

I think that's what you call "good seats." 'Loved that first shot especially.
