Family Session in their front yard.
I really like the one of the boys pants. I love the grungy look. The one of the family is very natural and it shows personality of each family member. The last one of the boy on the trampoline would look better if it wasn't so messy. I like simple. I love the expression and how the photo is so fun.
You seem to not want to capture people's faces in the images, which is a key thing in most portraiture.
Well, I have alot of them looking straight forward, I just picked a few of my favorites
I also love that grungy look. I used a preset from LR.
Thank you for the feedback!
I like the last two... The rest I could do without.
Don't be afraid to use some fill flash... #1, #3 and #4 all could have used some extra light.
Thank you. Everyone has been complaining about my lighting..Is it that I need to use my flash or edit it brighter?
What do you guys suggest for me to learn about lighting/exposure?
i like the last 2, but like other said, a fill flash would have been great.
I'm not getting the fill flash thing. The exposures look plenty okay to me.
Nice shots, but if you don't mind my being picky, I would have preferred the baby feet's be included the the 3rd, and the 5th re-cropped to a vertical.
Doing some Internet searching is always a good self-help kind of start.
