    Ok so most will probably say it's boring, but because I also like to snowboard it was an interesting subject to me. If you would like to leave C&C please do, but looking for along the lines of help. Also an extra picture that I thought was cool because of the effect.

    Exposure and focus are better, but they are still not very interesting

    I know you said don't buy anything until I get exposure down, but how much do backdrops run and where could I buy one?

    Ebay, $40-1000 dont rush.

    Yes it might be interesting to you, but you asked for C&C, so yes they are boring and not interesting at all, don't ask for peoples opinion if you cant take it and learn from it.

    You seem to be going in ten different directions at the same time. Slow down. If your gonna use backgrounds then your gonna need lights. Did you ever read the children's book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie..." Photography is lot like that. If you want a background to shoot portraits I would recommend silvelakephoto.com. 10X12 or 10X20 they sell new for about $270.00 up. They also sell a lot on ebay for less. You'll also need a background stand. They sell those too.

    You will never be able to please everyone with your photos, but insted of saying,
    "its interesting to myself and thats all that matters"
    why not ask helpful questions like,
    "ok, what could I have done differently to make these more interesting?"

    That will get you a long way, your lucky I am in a good mood today, but dont push it!
