    You don't have to tell me. I thought you were going to tell me about using fill flash. LOL The beach was full of young girls that you couldn't guess there age.

    Lightbulb Prove it, babe!

    We all know that one ends badly. Always look for the official "DCRP Modeling Identification" card.

    (Not to be taken seriously ... parody)


    They are under strict distribution (not everyone has one) and should keep you out of the pokey, when asked for. Bond is available in certain states.

    But seriously, Frank, you might want to get a "modeling release" signed by her parents BEFORE you go and post these all over the free-world. It is one of the unfortunate side-effects of image posting.

    Something along these lines ...

    I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on television, but you should cover your rump in all cases.

    I will see you there.LOL Her father was there. He is a photographer also. I gave him all my shots from the whole day. He is the one who prints all my images. He even took a few shots with my camera.

    frank the last shot shows a real progression and maturity in your photography. its a long way from where you first started and you should be really proud of yourself.

    a tip here for someone that does a shitload of portraits...i think you need to be meticulous about your framing. the composition of a portrait makes or breaks it. it turns a nice photo into something people want to hang on their wall.

    when you first start out in taking portraits i strongly recommend you leave space around the subject so you can play around with composition later. this was the hardest thing i ever learnt cos your instinct tells you to go tight but until you get more experienced in it, you can save youself alot of aggravation later by giving yourself some breathing room; you can always crop back an image but you can rarely regain what you have not taken.

    if you do that for a while all of a sudden you start developing an "eye" for what sorts of compositions work from the camera and you start to get it right on location. imo, these portraits you made are too tight and could really benefit from some room for the subject. the tones and mood of the images also lend themselves to mono or duo tone.

    please excuse my hatchet job on the cloning to make some space but i thought i'd share how i would have shot, processed and framed that last photo to turn it into something very special. (in my opinion at least), i think its a bloody pearler of a photo mate, well done.
