Well I've been working my butt off trying to get my photography business on its feet, and things have been going really well. As most of the "pros" here will know, I've been doing a lot of paperwork and legal stuff, but some of the time (yeah, some) I've been able to take my gear out of the house and do some hands-on work.

All the following photos are from paid jobs - comments and questions welcomed. Thanks!!

You have been busy:)

1. The tilt doesn't add to the photo.its a nice capture, but she got caught by the shadows, another angle would have alleviated that bright sunshine if they were looking at you?

2. THe Wb is off. alot of magenta perhaps?

5. Dad has the deer in the headlights look:(

7.DOF makes this one soft, I would love to have seen the eyes more focused?

8. There seems to be a lens distortion in this one, the side people looks off?

Looks like you have made them comfortable and wanting to pose, thats a great thing!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Thanks for the helpful pointers Flo. I should have added that the engagement shoot was done last year in September (I think) and at that point I had virtually no post processing experience, so a lot of my pictures had bad WB.

As far as tilting the camera goes, it's definitely personal perference and not a technical no-no. In my experience, some photographers love it (and do it all the time); other photographers detest it.

It should be noted that picture 5 is heavily photoshopped - the grandfather was to the extreme right of the picture and was dumped (rather hastily, I admit) between his wife and son to bring the group closer together. Definitely not a photogenic man. :cool:

Still getting to grips with f/1.4 and full frame - the shallow DOF is a big challenge!

Thanks again.

A tilt will work if the subjects are adding to the feel.this one isn't to me.So many things are overdone to the point of moot.I have seen tilts that left me breathless in wedding portfolios.its all about the "feel" and timing.
