Hey Guys,
Here is a link to some senior pictures that I took today. I think the shoot when well even though he almost completely refused to smile (I guess that is the cool thing to do), and here is one of the shots that I think turned out great, but it really isn't a normal shot. Please let me know what you honestly think. Thanks!

In my opinion the frame distracts from the shape of the back and that is a shame (is he a swimmer?). I would have also preferred if he wasn't slightly turned to the right. I like the pose though.

Frame kind of distracts me too, I'm afraid (particularly bottom corners). I like the darkness of the B+W conversion :)

Thanks for the feedback guys. I made the frame as a demo, so I will not probably use it for much. Any more comments?

Those pictures came out nice considering he wouldn't smile. My favorite is #24.

Thanks so much. The black background worked out just right. The tattoo is great.

I think you've done pretty well there. The kids obviously an aspiring model, and he better learn that the photographer dictates what the model does, and you need to learn to dictate to models if that's where your photographic interests are. I actually find most people smiling in that sort of setting a bit cheesy but that’s a subjective thing. If you wanted him to smile then he should have smiled


I don't know what good composition is.... Sometimes for me composition has to do with a certain brightness or a certain coming to restness and other times it has to do with funny mistakes. There's a kind of rightness and wrongness and sometimes I like rightness and sometimes I like wrongness. Diane Arbus

Nice Work. I looked at the album and very good work. Don't know if you have cropped most of the photo or not, but I shot a wider photo and this is because you never know what the kids will want printed on the sides of the photos, i.e. name or year or "Go Team", etc.
I've been doing seniors for a couple years now and most of the guys and a few of the girls will not smile and since they are paying for this service they can do what they want ... you can't make them smile.
The frame is a good choice for this kinda pose or any of the photos.
Having Samples of the different frames is good.
Keep up the good work!

I like #29 best. Less body, more attitude.
