    Yesterday a friend asked me to take some pictures if him and his girlfriend. I haven't taken too many portraits but its something I hope to improve on. we went to a local park and I think we got a few decent pictures.

    I don't know if adding a slight bleach bypass (with Nik color efx pro in CS3) was a good idea in PP. I think it add a level of sharpness to the photo but any comments on that or any other aspect of the pictures is greatly appreciated!

    All taken with D50, 50mm, ISO200, and at aperture mode.

    1:[​IMG]
    Exposure: 0.004 sec (1/250)
    Aperture: f/3.2

    2:[​IMG]
    Exposure: 0.002 sec (1/500)
    Aperture: f/3.2

    3:[​IMG]
    Exposure: 0.005 sec (1/200)
    Aperture: f/5.0
    EV-2

    Hmm,

    Not bad images, One thought though is that 1 and 2 are quite different WB than 3.

    2 is probably my favorite as it shows something of a connection between the subjects.

    My favorite's probably the first of the set. Only things I can say is the woman's hair is kind of in the way in the 2nd and 3rd shot, would have been better if she could have swept it out of the way. Well done overall :)

    They really are connecting the way they stand out from the background is great IMO. Good job. You cant help how your subjects prepare for their shoot.
