I would like a critique of a couple of photos, please. I've spent the last several months developing my lighting and editing techniques. I'm trying to create something more specialized for portrait photography than the 5,000,000 other local photographers offer. Within 6 months I'll have pro lighting gear. The boy directly below, here was shot using a home-made softbox with a 100-watt bulb and another naked bulb of the same power. The photo of the girl is a candid shot I took outdoors beneath a picnic canopy.
