I am new to this and my daughter in law wanted some maternity photos.
You'll get more responses if you post the pictures instead of a link to them.
I like the second one. She looks very serene. Is the desaturation on the first one intentional?
yes. The stripes on her shirt were real distracting until I did that. Thanks
you asked for honesty... they are kinda boring.. the first one has really harsh shadows.. this is likely due to the fact that I'm guessing you used a built in flash on a camera.. you should pretty much NEVER used a built in flash on a camera.. they suck.. get an external flash and put it on the hot shoe, and point it at your ceiling..
the second one has potential, but, its still kinda boring..
Thanks I will try that
It's okay to use the pop-up flash as fill flash when shooting outdoors in bright sunlight and you don't have a hot shoe flash with you. But that's about the only time the pop-up flash is useful.
the backgrounds are distracting, try for simple, less clutter.
Distracting background, the Flash is casting harsh shadows on both.
1- the Mans attire isnt photographically accurate (if that makes any sense..) and the hands are cut off
2- Too centered, the window has a glare on it, her face is out of focus, the flash is giving her body a black outline. Lost alot of details, somehow.
Sorry, you asked for honest.
You know I've always wondered what the deal was with the pregnant moms looking out the window...
they are looking at the things they could have if they didnt have kids..
Watching someone drive away the 2-seater convertible that they just sold?
<sigh> I miss my S2000.
