thanks for looking...
Very nice, Damon. I like the black and white quite a bit! I think the softness really works here, and good use of "negative space."
Good models too. Is it the same in both?
the first shot is awesome; what a capture! exposure is spot on. i would try cropping a little bit of the left out and see what you get. either way - :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
I think you have a gift for capturing emotion. Both of these shots really drew me in. Your composition is excellent as well. The second seems a bit soft, but it works I think.
The first one is awesome!! Have you tried that one in black and white? If you use the channel mixer and fool around with it on monochrome, you could get some really nice tones in that one.
These are great!
While I'd be interested to see the first in b+w, I think I like the colour version very much, already.
Yes, I'd try out a crop on the left just behind where this shiny-white background thingy begins to rise. I find that quite distracting.
Other than that I wonder if there's a secret, discreet disapproval to be seen in his fingers with what the teacher in the front is doing or saying???
Thanks for all of the comments and suggestions...
As stated, nice job on both of these, Damon. Bold cropping and composition.
Thanks Tuna...actually there was no cropping - these are normal 1.6x shots...(10D with a 200mm 2.8L)
