Well during myindoor shoting some weeks ago I made some basic shots where I find my friends in very nice position with there faces so free to be pictured.

Yesterday I made some photoshop improvement and i'm showing 2 of them tonight.

Please comment and suggest everything that I made wrong or not good enough to keep learning.

Pictures formated for basic 150x100mm printing.

thanks

the first onei don't much care for the spotlight effect..


the second one is the best of the series.. the flash is a little too much though, maybe dial in a little flash exposure compensation.

the third one looks to be a snapshot... the composition is too tight, the pose is a little sloppy and the expressions don't really match...

# 2: is the best for me, however I fell the pose a little bit "squared", but it is fine

# 3: I don't like the pose and expressions, they seems very forced. The young girl could be ok, but the ligth reflecting in the Mom's face is very distracting. Some make up could help.

Number two is quite nice for me. I'm not really much of a portrait shooter, but maby try soften the skin a bit, keeping the eyes and mouth sharp.

Hey,

I like the second shot the best too... however it looks like she is holding a denim backpack! I am not a huge fan of the framing choice either...

Using that kind of framing is not maybe the best but since i make the photos from those pictures and standard format that i use is 15x10cm andI must have the white space all around. Sometimes I do not like the whole picture space and I have to cut only the best parts. That is why I make the not basic format of the pictures and pressured to make framing. Also I'm still learning and my photos in original are taken from a lttle much distance just to be sure that i dont cut important parts and because of using the flash often i have to be in some distance in order not to have overexposing of picture but I'm planning to learn that.

Anyway thanks for sharing your mind expression.

Regards ZAK
