    Last weekend I did a photoshoot for my friend who DJ's in the Bay Area. Took over a hundred photos. These are the ones I liked the best. Tell me what you think. This was my first photoshoot by the way. Natural light only! :mrgreen:

    C&C Please. :thumbup:

    that was the idea here. I know its a little over processed, but he likes the look.

    thanks for the critique though!

    my fave of the batch is #2 and #3.

    as a DJ myself, those would be the two i'd pick for a flyer.

    you edited the 3rd anfd 4th one too much.

    also, you cut off at the knees in the 4th one, this makes him look weird

    Don't get it at all...why not show him doing whatever it is he does? These look rather 'plain'. Nothing going on...a guy wandering around with headphones....a guy staring at a glass building...what is the point? Doesn't connect with me at all...

    good point!

    maybe take this same guy and setup some very basic of his equipment outside for him to pose with

    What I mean is these don't communicate 'this guy is a DJ'. In themselves they're not necessarily good or bad...for the most part...but what I think the assignment is has been not brought out. I'm not saying they are either good or bad, just not to the point...

    LOL

    I just mean that without being told this guy is a DJ I would not have guessed it. I'm not commenting on their quality one way or another.

    Band photos are a bit more contextless...you can tell it's a band, usually.
