    Quote:Hi Louise,
    A beautiful image of your sister and very natural which works very well.
    The crop is a bit tight IMHO. it would be nice to see a bit more of your sister!. The right hand (fingers!) worries me, all you can see are her fingers, which look like they have been photoshopped into the picture (if you see what I mean!!). A bit more space around your sister would fix that. I agree with Peter about the nicely posed arm, being a little bit bright.
    I hope this has been helpful!


    yes I see what you mean about the fingers... I liked the pose with her hand there though. The original shot did show more of her but I didn't like it as much.

    Completely agree re teh arm bring too bright too - I'll see what I can do with that.

    Thank you!!!

    Boy do I feel stupid! I can't believe I didn't really see that her face was underexposed, I have started again, taking all your comments on board, exposed her face properly, upping the contrast...

    Let me know what you think. Don't know if she now looks a little over exposed but it is a dramatic improvement!

    Quote:If you are offering your services professionally as your logo suggests, I would step back a bit and make sure you have the basics mastered. I'm sorry to sound a bit severe, but you have a great deal of contrast lost here due to image flare from the sun. You will not fully correct this iin any image editor and must consider your viewpoints more carefully.

    Here, a bit to the left, looking right, a touch less exposure and a good powerful external flash as fill. Get the basics right.


    Hi Paul

    I do hope to but I'm not at the stage of charging anyone for work at the moment, I am just portfolio building and practising.

  • Oh this boy...

    Thanks everyone for your comments!

    Yes I completely agree, annoying that I cut his head and ball, I couldn't step back as it was a wall but I should have considered portrait, I guess as he was crouching like you say Pamela I didn't think to...

    Willie - not sure where I rated it 5 stars? I didn't realise there was a place to rate the image so I think I may have done that by accident! However, if I manage to get a photo in focus I tend to give myself a high 5!!!

    I am trying to set up part time on my own, but I am FAR from established, I have done 2 "shoots" one for a friend's baby, and another for a stranger but for free to practise maternity. I made a LOT of mistakes with both but am learning along the way and that is my intention. I've learnt a lot from the advice I have received on here even through the few photos I have uploaded so will continue to do so! And I am always happy to receive opinion and critique!

    I altered the white balance after, mainly because I am not really sure how to set the white balance manually so I leave it on auto and then adjust the temperature if it needs it.

    Pamela - good suggestion about seeing the picture before I snap... I tend to panic that I will miss something so never leave myself time to visualise the final image including background, so that is definitely something I will work on!

    Thanks again everyone - much appreciated and I'm off to try a few of those edits on the yellow blobs myself now!

    Thanks Moira I really like what you've done with it!

    No idea how you got rid of the twig, I have photoshop but have never used it. Just have aperture for cropping and basic editing really. Need to get my head around it I think!!

    And yes, definitely one for the family album, little rock star.

  • Snow Painting

    Wow I was not expecting such a positive response! Thank you everyone!

    So I can see now from the modifications you have made how it was underexposed so that's something to look out for. I really like the clean background Pamela, it's a shame that the snow loses it's definition though so I might see if I can play with that at some point.

    It was snow paint that she had in the bottle so yes she was more than likely shaking it and I got lucky with the shot. This was taken in the first week of getting my first camera so I hadn't quite got that images are much better when you get down to their level but I feel like this one works anyway.

    Thanks for all of your advice - quite a lot to work on from those 3 comments! I haven't had a chance to take any pics this week but I will definitely try working with those settings Willie and using those focus techniques Paul. One thing on that - if I focus on the middle then recompose, will my camera pick up if my subject moves which inevitably it will!!

    Thanks all
