    :lmao:

    Of course the day when it is 10% chance of rain, we get poured on...

    But I got these literally in the first 5 minutes we were there.

    I am wondering how I did.

    I think they're really good. some will pick certain things out like you clipped a couple elbows and a couple hot spots but the parents will love em, and thats all that really matters.

    I really like number 3! Missed the elbows though but the shot + your background story make it seem like she could smell the rain and was like "OH crap cover up!" :lmao:

    Very nice shots! I like #2, she have a really cute facial reaction. Like someone said, she look like she smell the rain is coming and was about to take on the rain.

    1-The car in the background ruins the shot. Boy's gaze is off. Framing is too tight for a formal shot like this.
    2-Short lens from close exaggerates size of objects close to camera, makes far hand look like it is deformed...unusual eye gaze the child has...still okay shot,hand near LLC needs more space, as a way to alleviate the tension caused by a too-close crop on that back hand.
    3-ADORABLE expression. Parent in background hampers it. Parents probably still like the photo though--it shows emotion,and parents love that!
    4)Framing a bit tight, and the boy's gaze is wandering...it looks as if his mother is camera-left, behind you, trying to "help out"...need to tell virtually all moms NOT to do that before the session,and to instruct them to stand RIGHT behind you, like 2 steps behind you, so the gaze of the sitters is directed toward you and the lens, and not mom off to the side saying, "Smile honey!"

    I agree with Derrel's analysis mostly, but aesthetically, I think this is a big improvement from some other shoots you've posted. I'd still love to see more candid shots, but that's just a preference.

    Yep. That sounds like a Florida weather forecast result. Don't I know it, lol. At least you got some shooting in so that's good. The first one's a good shot but, yeah, too bad about that car.

    and I saw the car in the background, this was the first shot I took, so I moved ever so slightly to the left and bam, the sky turned black, but I kept shooting because I wanted to at least get ONE good one.
    But here are the others from the set...
    These were the only pictures I took. The ones of the kids are while we were running to our cars getting poured on! haha
    Enjoy these!!

    and I saw the pole too, but it was the lessor of two evils, easier to crop a pole out then a car

    The usual spot I like that has less distractions (cars, poles, bums...lol) was over taken by about 100 sorority girls getting their photos also!

    the set is AMAZING, looks great. You did a very good job, cant really say i would have done anything different. You got great shots while you had the chance and they turned out GREAT.

    Nice pictures. I love the look on the little girl's face in #1. The little boy never looks into the camera?
