    Let me know how I did. I want to hear the good the bad and the ugly. It all helps!!

    The Band is called Catalina Shortwave. A hard rock band with a southern rock twang from Connecticut. Very cool guys, with very cool music. We had about Half an Hour to shoot and I did Single Portraits and group shots for them.

    Bad: Think you slightly missed focus on the image that is just above the one with the bearded fellow.

    Good: Everything else. I like the processing. I like the poses. I think you got some excellent expressions esp given you did all this in quite limited time. I hope you feel proud of how well you have done. Congratulations.

    I like the set. The band seemed to have personality.
    I would clean up the dirt on the t-shirt of the younger guy's individual shot.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Apologies for the amount of time it's taken me to get back to you. I get really busy at times and can't make it onto the forum.

    Yeah the missed focus was %100 my fault. I neglected to check focus for each of the guys as we shot. I knew they wanted to get out of there soon (Most of them weren't too fond of having their photo taken) and in trying to make it a more pleasant experience for them missed my chances to check the images. I mistake I've now most deffinatly learned from.

    Thanks again :eagerness:
