what do you all think?
Cool pic!!!!! I'd crop some of the brick wall out so he's more the center of attention.
Keep up the good work!
have any post processing tools?
Id try to play around with your color & contrast
and a crop.
the bricks are slightly dull and he doesnt pop well.
i have a big problem like this myself that others have pointed out to help me, since i love bricks as backgrounds.
maybe something like this :
The last version is nice and give a special feel to the photo!
The focus is a bit soft.
for your comments and critique, christina I personally like you're version better than mine, good work. Do you use ps? Because I actually don't have it and really need to get it soon.
-and to thebrainchild, I was thinking about cropping it but wanted to get comments first, thanks though.
i would loose the wall area on the left and shoot him above the waist. also I love to see eye detail in a Portrait.
I think there's too much space around him even on the second cut. I think the look on his face tells a tale and should be in the forefront. I'm no whiz with PP, but here's an attempt.
If he's cropped above the waist, I actually don't mind all the wall to the left. Here's my noobie attempt at playing with the shot:
I like his "don't care" expression but feel like he should "pop" from the background more. Try some burning effects - usually helps. Otherwise, nice shot.
side lighting would have really helped in this situation. looks really flat. also, what focal length was it? That might have contributed.
Thing is I wasn't really going out to shoot a portrait of him, we were going up to the top of a school so I could shoot a foot portrait for an assignment and he was going to make sure I didn't fall off the edge. As we were climbing down the school I was just like...hey dude get up against this wall and pose, and he just did it.
btw I'm about to make a thread with the foot portrait so you can all see it.
and thanks for all the help guys.
