    Last week my best friend asked if I could take some pics of him. He graduated but hadnt gotten senior pics yet. So i said sure! Free of charge since its for practice. Never done this before. So give me your worst!

    PS. Quality might be a little under par since they are from facebook. If they look over processed its because its what he wanted. (Ie. #1. And #6.)

    I love 3 (could maybe be a bit better without the window in the background though), 5, and 6. 4 is a bit...lacking. Doesn't look too overprocessed, I think. Try running some of these through B&W and play around with the filters. In my opinion, shots like number one would look great in BW.

    In a majority of these, your subject is insignificant, and the background dominates. Also, I feel you are placing the subject to close to the edge of the image.

    I was thinking the same things...too far away with too short of a focal length, and crowding the edges of the frame for some undetermined 'reason'...

    Also, what's up with the grainy look? Are these scanned images from color prints or something?

    an example of this is 6.
    even after first glance, my eyes were still staring at the big door with rough paint and the words Private Event. and everytime i scrolled passed the pictures my eyes went there and never to the subject

    Haha, thanks guys. Like i said this was my first time trying this type of photog and I will def take into account what all you are saying. And Derrel, they are over processed. Not scanned. But i really see your point. Thanks.

    Is grainy and having too much noise photos are caused by over processing?

    Yes, or shooting with a high ISO, or bad webhost compression.
