A friend of mine is asking to give her friend a photoshoot and I will be paid so I wan't to ask you guys if these photos can tell that I'm ready to do a paid work now. Any comments and critiques are very much appreciated.

PS: please give me some pointers/tips to improve my skills eg, shooting and post processing.

Taken with Nikon D£3000 w/ 18-55mm kit lens, ISO 100, F/5, 4.5, 3.5, 1/160sec

Be careful when it comes to limb chopping, it's happened in every photo except 1 and 4.

Also, watch the backgrounds. There's something distracting in most of them.

The colors look great, but they seem to be different in each photo (ie: the sky). This may have been a change in weather or something in PP.
 
If you are getting paid, you are a professional! Based on the shots above, you are not a professional... I am confused!

Cutoff limbs, busy backgrounds, lighting is harsh in several, skin tones are all over the place, poses are not attractive in some, wrong format choice in some, WB is off in several....


She deserves better!

No I'm not, they just want to pay for the service. I just love taking pictures and I'm just quite new to this thing and still needing to learn more. Very limited equipment, and technically, limited knowledge. Above all I really appreciate the comments :)

The definition of "PROFESSIONAL" is basicallly one who gets PAID to provide a service... and you are right, you are not! :) At least you realize that.. unlike the majority of (new camera = new business) types! Keep on shooting.. and study, and read and shoot some more......
 
I'm not good at critiquing these kinds of shots because I miss many things that others will see and point out but I did notice the skin tones are too warm in some of the shots. I downloaded this image, opened it in PSE as Raw and lowered the temperature -10. Comparing the two images you will see the difference.

No I think it's my PP as I'm adjusting them individually with different values. With the limbs, yes, I often miss them. :(

thanks. <3

Thanks Jerry! I'm still aiming to buy a calibrator as my monitor's is really off and tend to make flat or harsh.

LOL I'm still like them. Claiming themselves PRO me I just do it in my own castle not publicly. :lol:LOL
 
Your reply to my comment made me realize something and that is my monitor may be out of calibration so what looks warm on my monitor may look just fine on others.

Could be but I don't know with my monitor hehe... Honestly I know it's not a good choice but I did all my PP using my LCD tv cause I haven't bought a calibrator yet and my tv is better than my laptop lol
 
I like these shots. None of the clips bother me, they are more crop choices than clips.
Use a much larger f-stop to blur those backgrounds, shoot in better light (not midday) and you will do fine.
Cut the flash power just a bit so it looks more like fill than main.
Flash looks a bit flat, but you used the daylight to give some shadow on the face so you got away with it in most of these.

Thanks bruv! At last i heard one good review lol I'm relieved lol
 
Do not confuse a complimentary review with a good review. They are not always the same. You have had several very good reviews in this thread.
