Made Another Attempt at taking my younger brothers Senior Pictures Again (some of the color on the first one seemed to get lost in the uploading). As always C&C is more than appreciated.

Here's the resultes:

Here's a few different edits of these photo's as well:

While we were there I also took some photo's of my girlfriend and had some taken of both of us. I feel these are much better and wish the my brothers pictures would have had the same type of coloring as this.

I'm looking at these on a crt monitor now, and they seem a bit darker than my lcd screen.

i think they look great... just a little boring. everything is very centered. but your focus and exposure look good, just get a little creative! Sr's are great to try all the really fun different stuff on! :)

...yeah, I hate that.

I think you did a very nice job on these shots--both your brother's and those of your gf. The poses and composition work well for me, especially #1 and 2 of your gf, and #2 of your bro. #3 of him would be better if it didn't have the blueish tint to it (maybe just my monitor).

Which one does your bro like best? Looks like you captured their personalities well, and they were very comfortable which worked for you. Be happy that you have willing models to photograph!

The one of you and your gf came out really well. Did you do that one too or have someone else take it?

He really doesn't care, these were more for my mom and his yearbook. She might make him go again because he got his hair trimmed yesterday, :D.

As for the pictures of me and my girlfriend, I set the camera up, and talked my mom through focusing and taking the picture. I'm still a little amazed on how little my parent knew the camera, they bought it back in 2004 primarily to take pictures of us playing sports, and up until I started using it to shoot my brothers sports pictures this past year, they had just been using the "sports" setting and clicking away. And while occasionally this is ok, I began to wonder how many pictures they really missed during our playing days by taking pictures like this.

I agree with the "very centered" look for the most part - that makes them kind of bland. Most are a bit low in contrast. I don't like #2 with the "looking very steep down" view.

I like #2 - with a less "snapshotty" background (ie not the trees) it would be perfect for me anyway. They're all pretty good, and the first shot of your girlfriend is pretty electric, and with some cautious pp (don't overcook) could be even better! Nice!


Justin Keery. 20D, 17-85 IS, 70-300 IS and f1.8 "nifty fifty". OK so I've got the equipment right at last, time to focus entirely on the photography!

What else would you recommend? Mind showing me? I'm trying to get my PP perfect, I really just started learning how to do it with "portrait" type pictures (I've been shooting alot of sports photo's of both my brother and her). I've already adjusted the levels, shadows, hue/saturation, contrast, softened her skin, and took out some of her stray hairs. I've also done another version with a little bit darker face, because when I printed it out it seemed somewhat washed out.

Also does anybody have any good links to color calibrating an LCD monitor? These always look alot darker to me on a CRT.

You took some of the first posting comments to heart and improved! Good job.

The comments about being too centered do indeed have merit but the shots are good. You're coming along fine. I particularly like the B&W and the second shot of the lovely lady.

Remember, this stuff doesn't happen overnight.

By the way -- my last post has 105 views and no comments!

Thanks for the comments, I'll try redoing some of them this morning and posting different results. And for right now I'm not really worried about them being "bland" because I'm getting used to taking these style pictures and their PP, but I will keep that in mind next time I take some!

Here's two new versions of some of the photo's:

I adjusted the contrast some, and adjusted their skin tone, do these look any better?

I really like number 2 for the same reason that I dislike number 1. In 2, he's smiling, and in 1 he isn't. Kind of glum. He looks better with a smile on his face.

Your girlfriend is attractive, but I have to agree with Kathy, your images are somewhat boring. Try tilting the camera, or taking them from up high, down low. Adds a whole other dimension to the images.

That said, great work. Keep it up.

Oh, and another reason I like 2 (since it is a senior photo), his class ring is nicely displayed.
