Went for a picnic with some of my family and was asked to take a few photos by my sister. Here's one of her daughter (my niece) who is 13 yrs old. C&C on the shot and PP welcome. Thank you. :)
Looks pretty good to me! Her nose is made to not look big, her eyes are emphasized (her best feature I think), you caught a good look, no flash glare but nice catchlight in the eye, really like the use of natural highlighting on the subject's left side and shadow to the right (while not blown out), very sharp (always helps).Quote:

- I don't like the lens's bokeh, find it distracting. Looks a lot like the 24-105L bokeh (that I sorely dislike). A nice buttery portriat lens like the 85 f1.8 or one of the L primes should do better.
- If you want to stick with the pumped up colors, maybe it would gel with a portriat softening action.
Very concise and very helpful. :) Thanks very much for your prompt reply.Quote:

Here's one of my "expecting" daughter that I played with a little.
This thread has some other shots from the shoot.
Hope you enjoy.
First post. a little PS work.
This is a picture of my cousin's girlfriend. It's taken with my SD700, no PP. I know it's nowhere near the calibur of most of the pictures on this topic, but I do like her pose and facial expression. Seemed like one of the few "natural" people photos that I had. The colors are a little over exposed because I had it on the "Vivid" color setting.
