    I took advantage of seeing my dad this weekend to practice my weak portraiture and DOF. :er:
    They're not much, but I liked a couple of them enough not to discard them. Comments, and maybe some critique?

    2. (a bad crop, I know).

    And then one of my brother...

    And two more of my dad that I didn't like AS much because of the crop, but am posting anyways. The colors were nice.

    Look at the "rule of thirds" regards composition. Eyes should be placed on one of the connecting thirds.

    I like these though. THey are different.

    While the crops may be "outside the box", these photos have indviduality. They are different. They are out of the norm. But somehow they do NOT look like you never thought them through beforehand (which would be "snapshot" to me).

    Thanks everyone! The more I look at these, the more I like some of them. I've found shooting people is really very fun, even if these didn't turn out exactly how I wanted them to. :)
