I'm very used to nature photography, but posing people for me is totally new so i need some advice/ comments about it so i can grow and become better, im 17 and it was so much fun i could potentially see it as a career, but i need to learn as much as i can now and see where it takes me...

#1- can't see enough of the faces on this one..especially with the hair in the way on the girl onthe right..

#2- nice expression, she is very lovely.. i don't really care for the selective coloring here as i think it looks fake.. the crop is a bit tight on the left and a bit loose on the right..

#3- i'd get a little closer on this shot.. the background doesn't really add that much i dont think...

#4- this one is my favorite of the bunch, though i would have gotten in a little closer as well and the whole shot appears to bebit crooked..

#5- the exposure is a bit off on this one.. the face is in shadow and the background and shirt is blown..

I really like the technique of pix 1 and 2. I wonder how we can take a BW photo with a part of it has sRGB color.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Regards,

Quan

What I do is take a color photo just like normal then transfer it into Photoshop. Once it's in photoshop i make a path around all the edges of the photo with a "trail" going around the subject that i want to stay in color. So basically everything is highlighted, except for what you want in color. Then I go and pull the Saturation down to 0% so everything that was highlighted is now black and white. That will get it very rough. Then I continue to go and just take little by little taking out the saturation for everything i want black and white. The Lasso tool is the best for this, however if you right click on the lasso there are a couple of alternate lassos that work well depending upon the shape and size of what you are trying to keep in color. It is tough for me to explain but I hope this makes sense.
