    I just got everything needed to set up my flash off camera on a light stand via pc sync cord. All these shots were bounced into a silver umbrella.

    All comments and critique please and thank you

    It looks like they are either oversharpened or have a lot of JPEG artifacts....something looks off.

    He's not very expressive is he?

    I like the 2nd one best, followed by the first. I think the pose and composition is best in those two. #3 & #5, the poses look a bit awkward and in #4 you cut his hands off at the wrist and the face is fairly dark.

    I have a problem w/ this every now and then. It's when I resize them w/ infranview I guess it's sometimes hard for the program to go from so big to so small.


    Thanks

    I agree. The jpeg compression is bad. The pixels looked too "smashed" for web viewing.

    #1, the background is a bit busy.

    #2 is kinda cool for a pose, but not sure I like it for a guy.

    #3 and #4 are very dark and contrasty.

    The lighting is pretty even in all of them, which is not a bad thing. But most of them look to be underexposed.

    It might be worth checking into a program that optimizes jpegs for web viewing so that you can get equally good compression and good quality.

    I'll look into that. I'll try doing it maybe in a few steps first and experiment w/ different things. Sometimes they come out perfect sometimes all weird.


    I still have to get the hang of using the pc sync cord because I now have absolutely no meter to go by so I have been trying to look at the histogram. My monitor also isnt calibrated yet so I might have turned em down a bit too much.
