Taken for a friend for his myspace and what not. We were just messing around near the Marina and this one came out nicely.

Guessing from the shadows, it looks like the pic was taken mid day.

Lemmonphotography is right, I would like to see the face. Possibly use a fill flash for those shadows.

If you turn on your image editing I will run this through exposure for you.

Well the background is to busy for this type of shot and you need fill flash for the face. The best part of this picture is he's trying to make it look like he has money and it's only $86.00 he's waving around. My suggestions would be more of a solid background and have him save up his paychecks for a couple of months before he starts waving his money around like he's Donald Trump. Honestly though that money waving idea has been used so much its now more of a joke.


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.

haha Yeah. I wish I had an external flash, but when we were firing the on camera one, it was not doing anything good. I haven't played with it at all, but if I ran it through lightroom I'm sure I could adjust fill light and what not. And I will turn that on

I tried running it in color but the way his head is positioned it almost looked as if it was not his head.

If he's trying to go for the rich gangsta look, you might want to photshop some more zero's on those bills. Holding up $75-80 doesn't impress many...lol

Yeah. I'm always learning. That was actually one of the first shots I took with my XTi. I was pretty impressed with the kit lens in that regard. Thanks for the feedback guys! Keep it coming!

Face is way too underexposed, use some fill flash next time or get a better angle for good lighting.
