    not really sure if it's a nice enough portrait shot to be posted on this thread. You guys decide.

    I also like the color image, the gradient on the wall from light to dark is nice.

    Lighting on the subjects looks good and the framing is all good but the background look could probably be improved.


    I'd suggest firing a flash directly at the sheet behind them to blow it out more and give a bit of rim lighting through the hair etc. The sheet just needs to be flattened out a bit so the folds in the top left of frame aren't visible.


    The emotion is great though - it's obvious the two of them were comfortable with you shooting them which is a big part of getting natural emotion out of portraits.

    yeah background is my big gap in my setup, i don't quite have the capital for anything decent either in materials or supports so I wind up jerry-rigging everything.

    Twistedframe,


    Great timing on the shot! The emotion is wonderful.


    Buying a cheap steamer would help your background situation too. (I hope you don't mind this) but I would probably angle the chair a bit so that it is not straight on with the camera. The straight on angle is not very flattering for most subjects although I would not say that it detracts from this photo. A little angle adjustment would just make it a bit better in my humble opinion.


    Ahh, this is making me want to go shoot portraits! People pictures are my favorite. "I've never met a landscape that I couldn't put a person in front of and thus make it interesting" - Joe McNally
