    I'm new to the world of post production..

    i usually shoot outside with full sunlight or a slight overcast and my shots come out nice.. so i dont post produce.

    WELL, my work buddies and I thought it would be cool to take our shop back to the WWII era and make a photo day outta it...

    LIGHTING WAS HARSH!!! i dont have strobes and I have the best camera in the shop... D40 :D, with a SB-600 external..

    so i added some flood lamps to brighten the room up, dont know if i shoulda done this or not because it casted unwanted shadows.

    so i've done some Post-Pro from tutorials off the interwebs and NOTHING works... i dont even know which direction i should be going with this photo..

    i've done Lomo'ing, Vintaging... but my photos still keep coming out like crap. i prolly just need practice..

    can anybody help?

    here is one of the photos::

    i think your PP looks nice in the 1st one. except the shirts look purple, but you could change that.
