Hey guys, just though I'd post the latest practice shots from my little studio in the basement. The last one is just my son being silly lol.

I'd say real darn good Jim!
Much better backdrop, nice lighting and focus.
I like them a lot
Jim, I really love these. Very well done.
I also like the backdrop very much and the lighting looks great.
Your son looks like a real character. I love the smirk in No. 3 and No. 5 is nice and colorful.

Thank you very much hubcap and Kaye. I wonder if one of the first 4 would do me well for my final assignment. Or maybe one of the ones with the girl in the coat?

I think your other girl with the coat shot is outstanding Jim.

You mean this one, hubcap?

Very nice Jim I like them all and agree the backdrop is very nice with good lighting and focus wish I had somewhere to make my own little studio...

very nicely done Jim
I like #2 I think the best but would crop some off of the rt side if it were me
good luck on the last assignment

that is the one

I really like that one myself. Something about the expression on her face i guess.

I agree with hubcap Jim. I like that too. The composition is perfect, I like the lighting and the shadow on her face. I also like no 4 on the first series. I would choose between two of them. But I think the winner is the girl. Good luck Jim.

I like all these photo's Jim. I think #1 it could be a good subject in B&W. with the old radio and LP's

I like what you are doing here. I also think the winter coat shot is really good. You can use the "ask a tutor" to get feedback before submitting. I did that in the portrait lesson and was really glad I did. Greg gave me great feedback, and I went back to the drawing boardwith the same, but original raw file and when I submitted it, I got 100%. Good luck!!

I just might do that Marianne. I did that with a landscape a while back, and it helped me a lot too.
Just had a look at your shots. I think shot one, good that it is, is too over constructed for me, not natural enough. I love the second image, I think it has caught something of the sitter, I am dying to know what he is thinking - well done. Also love the shot of the girl in the hooded coat.
Keep up the great word
