  2. Really good work. The lighting is usually spot on, and helps enhance the mood. The only one I don't like it the hands in front of the face. My favorite is the drawn smiley :)

    You actually know how to shoot! 12 and 4 do look like throwaways...but the rest of them each have a little bit of something going on in them. I like your style and your eye.

    A couple of keepers for sure, 7 and 13 specifically. #7 I'd blow up for a wall hanging, or at least a 5X7 for the fridge.

    I love (most of) these. Your lighting is awesome! How much of the lighting is in post?

    I dont do tooo much in post. The most edited picture there was the first in which i did a good amount of work to to get the edgy feel. What takes a 30 seconds to fix lighting wise while shooting would take a god 10 minutes to (attempt) to fix in post, thats why it makes sense to get it right the first time. Needless to say lighting is what makes these pics what they are. I have 3 speelights and 2 monolights although most of these are 2-3 lights each.

    And thanks!
     
  10. The two at the wall are good. They are *technically* underexposed, but I think it benefits them creatively. If these were "properly" exposed they would be boring. A lot of people are technically oriented, and I think it takes away a certain opportunity. I like them dark. I like the fist, but I think a total B&W is never quite as interesting as a strong desaturation... a little color is nice, however subtle.

    Good work, keep sharing please.
