Getting better all the time Anthony.


I Like the pose with the tilt, - very modern. I would suggest having all of the fingers in, but its minor, it works as it is.


The contrast is strong on the shirt due to the colours which tend to make your sons face seen a little flat contrast wise, - you might have been able to work with this by providing more light on the shirt and less on the face if you had the gear. Another approach is to use a shirt thats plainer, with less contrast, more pastel, - BUT I know this is a brand new shirt he wanted and is showing off to its full benefit!

If you wanted to print this as an 8 X 10, you would need to crop severely length wise, so to retain all of the image as well as an 8 X 19 aspect you need to add space to the width, which Ive done on the left in the mod, - easily done as the background is lit evenly.


The mod is sharpened a little, added space to the left, improved facial contrast and adjusted skin colour (it may have picked up some blue from the shirt. Also tried a mod that looks OK to me.



Hope this is helpful,



Regards


Willie

I feel the crop is a little to tight.

Thanks very much Willie. To be honest i was just playing with my new toy with this one. I have just got a large highlight background, but i am still waiting for my lights, so i had to make do with 2 lights. I set one up at F16 inside the background and one up in front of the subject on opposite side set at F8. Camera settings were F8 1/125 200. hopefully when i get my 4 new lights the lighting will be more even. It is good to know that i am, at least heading up and your thoughts and Mods are very welcome.

Thanks Colin, I do agree with you, and when i finally get the lighting correct, i will move onto the posing.

I have done a little mod too - I added an extra bit of canvas and tilted him moreso and then cropped to show off his cute little face and dimples Wink . I also sharpened more and added a little contrast.

You are so lucky to have someone to model for you!
