    Done! They moved! :D
    And well, yes, the light you had when you took this photo was not exactly to your advantage (or theirs, for that matter), it produced strong shadows on their faces.
    Personally, I don't like vignetting at all, and don't deal well with crooked angles, so this one isn't really a photo for me, but ... I'm only one out of many...!

    thanks lafoto for moving it, :)

    and thanks for the comments too, there's a sign "no trespassing" over there and police are just on the other side of the road so we were REALLY in a hurry in this shot.
    what do you mean by crooked angles in this picture though?

    The horizon behind them is inclined - the rails look like they sit on a "hill", everything's slanted to the left. That's what I mean.

    Light is much better on his face in the second ... but the white t-shirts might always be a bit of an exposure problem for you, since they might all throw your metre!

    So you're "Zandro"? Hence "Zandman" with a Z?

    I like those pants... ;)

    I don't quite like the frames - seems pretty artificial. But it is very good that you are experimenting with them. They are extremely important for a proper output. Try to get bokeh with portraits.

    you know, i'm thinking that first one would have had an even better impact if shot from a lower angle....
    i might be wrong. heck i'm new to this... just brainstorming. ;)

    i like that the shot is slanted a bit. it adds to the shot.
    did you shoot in auto mode? white shirts look blown out.
    take someone with you next time to hold up a reflector for you on the shadow side. or shoot later in the day.

    yup, the pictures are gonna be use for their album promotion so i need to put watermarks on it.
    it's the first time i put a picture here with my name, urgh, now everybody knows me. :lol:.

    they love white T's and black T's,
    yea, the white shirts are really giving me a hard time to meter. so if next week will be good, i'll try to make them hold a gray paper and meter it there first. i read something about that that it would work. not too sure though but i'll try.

    i don't have anybody to take with me, :(.
    and i don't have a reflector too, :( that's the silver circlish thing right?
    i was shooting in apperture priority 5.6, i forgot my shutter speed, iso200

    i adjusted the contrast on photoshop because you can barely see the details on their face, i think i put +2 contrast and +1 brightness on the first one.

    it's like 3pm when we were shooting, besides the reason that there's no trespassing in the railroad, the rain is coming and my camera isn't waterproof, so we are really in a hurry not wanting the rain and the police caught us.
