I would appreciate any input on this photo from my most recent photo session.

The good, the bad and the ugly... I'm open to constructive criticism :-)

The photo can be found at: http://sgour.zenfolio.​com/p128958343 (external link)

Thanks,

Shaun

Adorable kid. You need to separate him from the background by about 4-6 feet and iron the wrinkles out of it. you could use a little more room above his head as well.

In addition to the above, try using a different colored backdrop, or a different colored shirt. The colors are very close, so he kind of blends in.

Hi - thanks for the responses so far... I was trying for a high key portrait... so shouldn't I keep him in bright colours?

White isn't the only bright color available.
