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...

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...

First timer here....sort of.

Hi all. I'm Christian Webb, headshot photographer in NYC. Been a member here for a bit I think.....But each time I've come here and tried to post and get started.....something goes wrong with my upload. Anyway, here's another attempt. Headshot from a recent session for an actor, JC.

I often go on trips by myself and take photos. Some i wonder if can be used for stock. I already have a shutterstock account and 300 dollars down over 2 years; but i dont...
