  • Is that really Jack Sparrow read below to find out ?

    In an ideal world a pop of flash would have been great or you could have boosted the exposure via your aperture/ISO/shutter speed because a brighter image would have burnt out the background a little as it is very distracting.(especially the 2 heads coming out of his shoulders).
    I understand you can't always do this on the fly otherwise you could miss the shot so boosting exposure etc in Photoshop would help boost the shadows in the face.
    Consider shooting at a lower angle to get rid of distracting backgrounds and this would also make your character look larger than life.
    For this image you could just add a gausian blur to the background.
    Love the character, his costume is super cool.

    A nice object with loads of detail but on its own its not strong enough as a picture, the brown out of focus cutting across the picture is distracting and doesn't add anything, backgrounds can make or break an image, so think what you could do different, shoot at a different angle to remove the distraction or choose a totally different background.
    The same goes for the black area bottom right, getting rid of this may lift the picture.
    Sometimes adding context takes a picture to a whole new level, try shooting from much lower down looking up at the duck head with a gentleman holding the walking stick with him out of focus, this will not only add context but make the image much more interesting, also this would be a wonderful backdrop for such a cool prop.
    With regards to the vignette I do like it which draws your eye to the duck but once again the brown wooden distraction takes away from that.
    As we can see your legs and room in the reflection of the gold ring on the base of the duck head, changing angles may eliminate this but this would be trial and error.

    Hope this helps and good luck

    White on white is very hard to pull off, but you've managed it, well done, a lovely shot.

  • Hi Jack thanks for connecting to my portfolio even though not sure what that is lol.
    Your stream is pretty awesome and I love your portraits.
    I love doing portraits but find it one of the hardest and most challenging of all the genres so top kudos to you for doing an amazing job.
    Keep up the great work.

  • Amazing portfolio.
    Your pictures are stunning.
  • A stunning portfolio, well done.
  • After 30 seconds on the phone with Danny I could feel the passion he feels for photography especially studio and portrait, after looking at Danny's portfolio this passion glows from his very high standard of work.
    I really enjoyed looking at your pictures or should I say works of art Smile
    You've shown the amount of variety you can get with portrait work which has inspired me to to try different things myself.
    Love the lighting you've produced on these shots with the fantastic addition of poses and props, keep up the great work and i'll be back to check out all your new additions.
    All the best

  • For a beginner im very impressed with your action shots as this not an easy area to get good pictures.
    You obviously have a natural ability for this type of shot.
    Great start to your gallery and keep up the good work Smile
