Hey BD,
you know, I'm no expert on portraits but, I read somewhere that your subject should be looking somewhere other than the camera, tell him to think about some pleasant experience he had recently... I think you got everything else down pretty good.
just my 2cents.
I like #4 &#6 the best!

Eye contact is a complicated issue

I like all the shots. I believe Dawg can shoot with some kind of bounce card on his 285 flash to avoid the flash shadows at #1, 2 & 4.

Nice effort Ed!

The first two show some shadowing from the flash. They are nicely exposed and the color and detail is good.

Either get tighter in your shot or stand back further to get the full body rather than cut off his legs/feet.

It would have more impact on the subject stand further away from the background.

Good use of your bridge in taking some shots but be careful of the background like the branches behind your grandsons head.


I like all the shots and are done nicely. I look forward to more of your efforts.

Even though it has some shadowing, I really like the colors in #4 and the use of the bridge. I probably would have turned his shoulders slightly in the first two to make the pose a little less static.

Nice work. These will be pics of which he will be proud.
