    I like the low angle in this one... and cropping - you didn't crop out the light and that's good

    Thanks! I just started doing photography sessions this summer. Just doing them as they come in. Not aggressive with advertising or anything. What about this one?

    They all look pretty nice. Good work.

    One think I noticed, they all seem to have the subjects dead centre with space all around them. This works for some of the shots because of the nice scenery but for the most part...it makes them look a little snapshotish. Try to think of different compositions. Try getting closer to them to crop out the space around them so they are more prominent in the photo.

    Hey Lena,

    I like the shots you have taken...!

    I agree on the shots taken from the low angle, they are really nice. Others could maybe to taken a a bit closer to the subjects (your family) at maybe a more dynamic angle than straight on.

    As for some of the B&W's, adding a little contract would be nice also.

    Take all of this with a grain of salt, I am just trying to get into learning portrait-type shots myself. Just a casual observation.

    They are all nice shots...good work!

    I'm right next door to ya in Minnesota...its getting cold already!!!

    Take care. -Jared

    Thanks guys! These are totally unedited--just waiting for my new Dell computer to arrive complete with Photoshop so I can get crackin' on editing them. I do agree on the drop dead center-ness of them though. I so need to get away from plunking them in the middle.
