I agree with the focus being a bit soft in some of them. I think they look ok on my monitor though but number three and four show a different color. Might be the white balance difference of the lights in the room.
I agree, however living in a town house and shooting with an 80mm lens isn't making the background choices easy. =)
For the people pointing out the exposure being a bit dark, should I fix that in photoshop, or slow my cam down just a bit, I have a lot of issues even shooting at 1.8 indoors where I have blur, I try to limit myself to 400 ISO but find myself getting annoyed with the blur and bumping it up to 800.
What is the best way to get a good white balance straight off the camera? I always end up having very "warm" pictures that do not look real (color wise) at all, I always need to add a lot of white balance to the pictures.
No editing other then resizing, the walls are a slightly off white yet they almost always look tan.
One thing I do plan on getting is a Canon 430ex hopefully when shooting indoors bouncing light will help with my lighting issues since I don't really have a good source of light in the house.
I'd love to get some wireless flash/umbrellas/stands but at this point I really need to learn more so the basics of getting the light right without the need of lights.
Most of my shooting has been of cars/bikes, indoor human stuff sure does take a lot more work!
