    So my friends were over tonight, and they thought it would be interesting if i took some portraits.

    These were spontaneous and im not sure if they came out alright.

    Looking for some basic C&C and maybe some advice on portraiture.

    4 might be ok if his face was in focus, not his shirt, plus his hair seems to be casting a shadow over the top of his face

    I think #1 has the most impact. I think it's really funny. I like the pose, the vest, the small bat, the lean, and the look on his face. I love the color choices as well. Is this one vicnetted, or is it the light on the back drop? I think it is effective here. I think it accents the humor of the tiny bat. A little over exposed though.

    I think #4 is hilarious too. In a good way. He seems to me totally making the "I'm a model" face. I don't dig the composition though. The vignetting works for me on this one though.

    Tell me you guys weren't having fun.

    I think dude #1 needs that space to fall into. You could clean up the little shadows in post, too.
    Dude #2...Zoolander. :lmao:

    I guess I meant, his eyes are not in focus, and I think the main focus is on his shirt.

    Eh, too much work to comment on with no numbers near the photos. I like the B&W one.
