Not sure on the shot, but the pose and framing is most excellent.

I know how frustrating that can be, when you do a shoot and end up rescuing what you can. I think you have done well, great pose and composition. I like the fact one subject is slightly off focus. I think its a great shot

Agree with Keith about the pose...brilliant...but something's not quite right about the colour.

Composition and focal difference are spot-on, K. Very impressive. Your youngsters have the most expressive faces. The lighting, I'm finding ok except for a touch less contrast at the front maybe?

Well i think your method has worked K,this is lovely,they have such great expressions,as if to say"lookout she's got the camera out again",my son runs at times when i get mine out in the house...he knows what that means!!i'm still experimenting with portraits,feels like i'll never get

Excellent pose and DOF but a bit over exposed in my opinion.

Really nice portrait(s). The expressions work very well together - those two could have a career as models ahead of them!

I need to take some more pictures of my kids, I get loads of ideas from you K ...big click.
20 Aug 2004 8:51AM
Blimey thanks everyone. Mixed reactions on what works and what doesnt but the image has lost something on upload so perhaps that would be the colour problem. Thanks for the compliments about expressions - you should see my port pic! Thanks again everyone. K.

just a tad bright for my liking -- but the pose,composition and pure attidude do it for me in a big way ... love your port pic even more

Great pose, could see the attitude in the thumbnail, lol.
Don't mind the over exposure at all, in fact I think it adds to the pic. Only distracting thing for me is your sons grey troosers, IMO. Great image.

Like the composition and the angle, good all round if you ask me... I dont have a problem with the lighting at all, I feel it works well with the style of shot you have captured.

20 Aug 2004 11:21AM
Thanks Gav. K.

Hey, this is really good. I've often found it's so much better to shoot children without a tripod. It means you can move around and catch the unexpected.
This has a kind of GAP feel to it. I know it's mad but many fashion shoots over-expose whites in order to get more of a lifestyle feel anyway. Wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks Simon! Smile K.
