Baby photo – smoke ceremony?

Umesh

thank you for your submission. I would have loved to see a consistent 3 images selected for comments, to enable me to make consistent comments. In this case I can’t make general comments as the images are too different from each other. I cannot even name this article properly ๐Ÿ™‚

Baby yawn

photo critique

 

The image above is a good portrait but as a baby photographer myself, I do not believe that a yawn is the best choice for a portrait. It might have value to the parents but the image is not ย what I would hang on a wall. In terms of composition it is OK, nothing special, not sure what more you can do about it. First advice, avoid busy textures for clothes as it looks random.

The fluffy skin is popular, a bit seasoned as an idea, but I believe it is still OK for a commercial baby portrait. Exposure is OK.

Probably a bit better than the first one. all elements are OK, just the white balance is a bit too pinkish. I would attempt to make this black and white and increase the contrast to have a more strong visual impact.

I like this picture, as it looks different and it has a story to tell. I believe this is a travel journal and I enjoy the fisheye effect. The value here is not given by the photographic skills, but the content. Can you tell us what this is about? where when and what? I would be interested to find out more

 

Umesh

as a conclusion I see you have skills. I can not give you advice other than to pursue this further as I recognise a good level of interest in photography. Thank you for your submission and let me know the story of the monks ๐Ÿ™‚
