Oh man, I totally noticed that hand but I think I remember not knowing what to do with it. With my lens I was too close and had not room to back up and was more focused on her face :/
And some people really like having “instagram”/vintage pictures, but I try not to do that to all of them. I think I get what you mean about forced angles, and I’ll try to study more composition books. There aren’t really any photography classes at my highschool besides darkroom which I already took…I’ll look into it though.
There are always little things I want to change, but I think I’m getting better about achieving a little more in camera.
Like this one, I wish there was more light in her face
This one being more balanced
Idk…a sharper focus?
I don’t like the idea that my pictures lack the oomph that doesn’t make them any better than something the senior’s parents could take on a point and shoot. So I will definitely try to dispute that and get the other technical stuff down. I find that a lot of my pictures have the washed out sky/background at times like high noon…(I try to avoid that time)
