springtime baby photography critique for Hayley – Parkes

springtime baby photography

Hi Christian
I have just started a business in photography about 6 months ago and love working with babies and young children but was hoping to get some feedback on my work and see where I could improve more. I took this photo last Spring. Any feedback would be very much appreciated… I love your work and hope to eventually work my way up into weddings etc.
Thank you for your time

Thank you for your submission and your interest in the Academy. Let;s have a look!
Springtime Baby

Content 6.5 out of 10

For content I will be comparing this image with other baby photography portraits. This is not the best, not the worst, but the image looks good, it is nice, appealing, there is a facial expression of curiosity. It is captured well, however it looks as a picnic photo. It is better then the average, and i can recognise the intent as the baby girls is wearing womthing special for the photo session?

please tell me…was this a session for someone else or is she your daughter?

Overall I like the image, and probably more if she was my daughter, but in the overall baby portrait genre this is OK-ish. Could be better.

Composition 4 out of 10

I cannot see a clear compositional intention, despite the fact it is nicely framed. I think the position of the baby is not really helping. Maybe you can try a different angle?

Image quality 8.5 out of 10

Very nice image, I love the colour tones, it looks sunset, nice light, very well exposed

Final TRS mark 6.3 out of 10

I would classify this in the good photography category. With a better composition , this could have been way better.

despite the rating above, I see professionalism level and I am sure you can sell something like this. I can spot a good camera and a good lens. I can see some post editing – can you tell us the story behind this image? for who? when and with what?

By the way, I have been to Parkes many times!

Best wishes

Christian
