This shoot was last night... I find once you just give it up to your skills and shoot everything improves so much. You need to trust your skill and the years of practice and just do it.

If I look at these compared to 2 years ago they are like Pro vs REAL early beginner, even 4 years ago people were happy with my images but its just different now, finally starting to be happy with my work.

That's a nice, sound set, and you should be happy; more importantly however are the clients happy with your work on a regular basis?

Really like these a lot. They look happy and relaxed and you captured some nice moments - I especially like that last one. I'm sure they will treasure these always.

Very nice set! I bet it's nice to have clients that don't mind playing in the mud.

I like these a lot!

With that being said the crops on 2 and 5 really bug me. Since the kid is running I think it'd be better to frame it horizontally so you can see him running ahead. Which I believe the correct term would be, 'Leading' the subject.

And with them laying down, horizontal again, just to show more side to side, as the top and bottom doesn't really add anything to the photo and you also wouldn't chop her legs off (or end them at the edge of the frame). All personal preference and just my opinion :)


Very nice processing and looked like a lot of fun.

Clean, solid set. No forced smiles, all the emotions seem genuine. I really like the colors and processing - good work :)

Impressive collection! As newbe may I ask if you had any artificial light source? And if yes, what was the setup?

Thanks.

Only in 1 and 7 with a small burst of flash to fill the faces (on camera speedlight)
