    I just bought two lights with softboxes and fired off some test shots with the family yesterday. Would love some feedback on these :D

    Cheaky chappy at the bottom. Look good to me, nice exposure, lighting and warmth.

    i like the first one--how you made a "action" shot into a portrait. not really action but she obviously wasnt pefectly still--or maybe she was still. I cant tell. it looks like shes flipping her hair.

    The sharpness and clarity and color all make these look good.

    You might want to try a white backround,

    Thanks! I wanted a hair light to separate her a little more from the background, but I only have two lights and still waiting on my reflector.

    Yeah, I might try a seamless white next...

    "Beyond the Basics" is a DISCUSSION ONLY forum.
    If you want to showcase your people photography, there's the gallery there for you called just that: "People Photography".
