Home Forums Am I a Fauxtog? Ok, have at it… Reply To: Ok, have at it…


Sports stuff looks good. Love the first one of the basketball player. Applaud you, since it is hard to shoot in those kind of arenas. Portrait stuff does need work. No way are you in the fauxtog category. I saw most of your problems were in the skin tone. Might need to use a grey card to measure the light intensity outside. I also saw that according to the shadows you were shooting around 5 or 6. Good time, but you may need to concentrate on some shade on some of those photos.

Also, you may need to calibrate your monitor with you images. That could be an issue with the washed out reds.

While you shouldn’t quit portraits, it looks like your niche may be in sport action. May want to concentrate more on it and become even better. Have some friends who make a lot of money on just sport action photos.
