Hi Guys

I'm looking for some CC for this shot.
I know that the sky is more or less centre which may not be ideal, but what do you think about the colors? More or less saturation? Especially in the sky and in the ice blocks.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Would love some CC on these headshots :)

So I've thought more about background and composition this time compared to last. Would love any thoughts and CC :) Are they too sharp, the colors, the posing - what you say? :)

Fashion Perspective Shoot

A continuing series of perspectives focusing on line and shapes for a fashion publication. It was fun to have the chance to work with someone with such acrobatic ability. (The face poking out of one of the outtakes is my talented assistant Amy).

First time critique requested

Hi all, first-timer here. Just came back from an incredible vacation to Greece and wanted some feedback on some of the pictures I was able to capture. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Looking back on some of the photos, I already know some of the things I wish I would have done differently but I'm sure most photographers go through...

CC request

Hi guys, I'm looking for some input into this shot that I've taken recently in NZ. Was actually shooting along the coast, but noticed the light coming over the hill when I turned back towards land ! Edited in Lightroom, with a fair bit of shadow recovery and a graduated filter coming in from the top left. Got a few more that would be great to...

First "cinematic" headshots

Hi guys, I've been shooting actors headshots for a number of years and have generally only worked with natural light, sometimes a reflector, and sometimes a bare speedlight with a 1/2CTO to replicate a sun/rim/kicker light from behind. After watching Dylan's headshot tutorial I finally decided to give his style a go on a recent shoot where the...

New Trends in Senior Portraits

Hello everyone -

I was surprised to see that there was not a group for senior portrait photography, so I thought I would go ahead and start it. I am by no means an expert in any possible way though :). Anyways, I was wondering if anyone out there would like to discuss any new trends they have noticed in senior portraits.

I will...

First Attempt at Macro

I have recently decided to up my photography game and actually try and make good compositions/take solid photographs for prints. I was much more casual before, now I am proactive in learning how to take better photos.

That being said, today I attempted Macro photography and this was one result I enjoyed the most. Unfortunately, I feel...

Jim Lake, Alabamastan

New to the group. I've visited 18 foreign countries and 35 States (not including the ones I've just driven through) and Washington, D.C. My interest in photography started when I went on active duty in the US Air Force in 1978 to document the places I would visit. Some 30+ years later, I'm still at it. I think I've got better, but who knows...
