    I had fun of taking photos of a pair of lovely twins. This time I took it a little bit slow so I find I like more shots than usual.
    Still find not all the shots have consistent color, specially with all the editing. But I think I got enough them close enough. Still have the over exposed red shirt but I just ignored it.

    Very nice series; appropriate poses, nicely lit. Good, solid work. Two thoughts: One, avoid posing women in shorts/short skits with their legs at 90 degrees to the camera (#1) as this tends to make the leg look heavy, and two, watch your cropping. There are several instances of bits of foot being cropped off. Bold crops work; they look intentional. Missing 'bits' don't. They look accidental.

    Thanks for the comments, John. I find them quite helpful. Cropping their feet kind of Accidents do happen lol when you take pictures just right and straighten then a little bit. And I did not notice the 90 degree pose and I think it's to the point! Thanks!

    I noticed the little bits cut off, too (I know what you mean about correcting the tilt and finding that you lose bits). Otherwise very good.

    Gorgeous smiles. If I were their dad I'd be stockpiling shotguns and shovels.

    Nice , cute , fun well lit and exposed set .

    I get what your saying about straightening image only to find you've cut out an important piece . This used to happen to me ll the time . I now just make sure to always leave a little " breathing " room . just n case !

    well done !

    do you have lens corrections turned on in LR? these all have heavy balsamic vinaigrette.

    that 70-200 f/4 is a lovely renderer.

    I think tirediron summed it up nicely.

    No I did not have lens correction on this photos. I added vignette though. I know it is kind of heavy when you zoom out but I wanted the viewer to focus on the person and I found it's tolerable. What do you mean by balsamic vinaigrette?
