Home Forums Am I a Fauxtog? Don't know if I want to do this :D Reply To: Don't know if I want to do this :D


When I was reading your post, I had a feeling I was going to like your work. And I do. I think you definitely show potential to be a really great photographer. I get a sense that you love being behind the camera. I love the candid moments that you capture. I don’t think you really need anything fancy in terms of lighting. You need to keep it simple unless you want to do more structured portraits. But I really like the natural light style, personally, so I think that you should focus there. A fill light would be helpful. Just take your on camera flash and point it at the ceiling. Depending on the amount of light already in the room, you can adjust the flash accordingly. But I would keep it really low so that the light still feels very natural but has a little bit of fill so that things don’t go too dark.

Nothing wrong with it. NOthing wrong with being a little soft or having some movement. Color temp. inside is a pain. When in doubt, consider black and white.

Cute but needs to be brighter and color balanced. Probably about 1.5 stops brighter: https://plus.google.com/photos/116541004292231676202/albums/5915463635662120177/5915465298084169490?authkey=CMueuL_biYviEw&pid=5915465298084169490&oid=116541004292231676202

I’m interested to see what you do in the future.
