    Yesterday I took some pics for my brother's band. I still have the original copies of the pictures so they can still be altered quite a bit. Please give any help, there are going to be used in their promotional packet.

    Bad news first.
    The backgrounds suck.
    Good news - ( and there is more of that.)
    • Focus and color looks pretty good.
    • The people are radically different in tone from the backgrounds so the backgrounds can be taken out relatively easily. (If you need some help with this, let me know.) What software do you have for image manipulation?

    I use photoshop. For future reference, What about the background makes it a bad one?

    Garage doors in focus. To me, It just seems, well, "I didn't think this through, I just got them in front of the house and took these snaps."

    Maybe this is a garage band. Open the door, pose them around the inside, make it look interesting.

    "I didn't think this through, I just got them in front of the house and took these snaps."

    hit the nail on the head there ;)

    I will be taking more pictures of them in the near future so I will keep your suggestions in mind. Thanks
