The first one has some sweet angles, it's mesmerizing to look at.

In general I hate posing and all of these have a natural look to them, even number two is just like the guitarist is glancing over. That one's actually my favorite because we can see a facial expression. You may want to try capturing more where he's doing something and not just looking down at his guitar, though that isn't necessarily a bad look.

Overall these look fine to me...shadows, noise, whatever. Fuzzy isn't bad, these are all interesting to look at and that's what matters.

Good stuff.

Bass.. >.<

You should find a different light source instead of your camera flash. You have already seen that you have a harsh shadow right behind him. Instead try to get softer light. A big window (though I can see it's dark outside) or a bounced flash would make these shot look better. I would also try to get a more dynamic angle instead of this one. Move as close as you can and get a shot close to his instrument! Tell him to strike a pose or something! ;)

I'm aware of what it is. A bass is still a guitar.

Beth, I found the first three photos interesting. I don't take many people pictures so I admire those who do. I don't usually like straight flash photos but I like fretless bass guitars. The last photo reminds me of one I modeled for using a very similar pose. ron
