Hey there folks,

Just joined up today - I used to take B&W film photographs, develop and print them myself - but I haven't had access to a darkroom for sometime - I got myself a cannon a95 in November and I've been going mad since - I'd love to make photography more than a hobbie but I have lots to learn - You folks seem to give really constructive feedback - so here are some of my portraits http://community.webshots.com/user/davemoore61821

The photos are a little small but I have hi-res copies

Thanks - I appreciate any feedback at all

Dave

She has a lovely smile.
When you want to shoot more intresting shots (these are nice by the way don't get me wrong), you could play a bit with natural light and a small reflector, now some shadows are a bit too deep.

Maybe it's better to post one or two here on the forum and lets us comment on those.

Greetings,
Frank

Cool - thanks man - I have a limited set up (tripod, camera, natural light and whatever I can find around the house) - and limited funds -- What is the most essential bit of kit I need?

Nice shots.

You can take the cardboard fom a pad of paper and wrap it with alimnum foil.

Try only to smooth the edges and leave most of the surface 'pristine' (shiny).

This can be a usefull light kicker to get some light on the pupils.

Regards, Nicholas

Number 1 is good.
Number 2 is not my cup of tea but it is very spontanious and that is difficult with a laugh.

I would start out with some reflectors and use natural light.
After that buy one studio flash and experiment, than graduatly build it up.

Greetings,
Frank

I must say, though, that many of your other non portrait photos are fantastic! I think the coffee pot picture and the bluish Sand picture are marketable (well, I'd buy them...) I know very little about portrature (I just lurk around this forum to see the goodies dropped by Kalypso and Frank D.) so I'd trust their advice... good luck!
