First attempt on studio photography

Critique for Dave Hodds

My first attempts at portraits with my little studio set up and my goal is to achieve pro standard images so that i can turn it  into a business .
Thank you for your time and would be most grateful for any feedback you can give me so that i generate my own style and progress from where i am at the moment.
 
Yours sincerely  Mr David Hodd

thank you for your submission. Let’s have a look

Close Up

Content 7 out of 10

nice portrait, a little a bit of undecided were to crop, and perhaps not close enough. Well balanced but try to decide where to cut.

Composition 5 out of 10

I cannot identify a clear composition…..symmetry? no, rule of thirds? no…what was your intent?

Image quality 6 out of 10

nice image but over saturated for my taste

Mother’s kiss

I am sure a mother’s kiss is Ok but this one looks a bit weird. But that is me and you do not have to take my comment.

Composition 7 out of 10

Bot sure if there was an intention here but the image looks perfectly fine in terms of composition

I guess as a trial for a studio is better than average, I have seen much worse, but the whole idea having a studio is to cotrnol the light. In your case the faces are in shade and everything else is lit

Nice portrait . nothign spectacular, but OK. I cannot find any issues, it is a nice family portrait

Composition 7 out of 10

well balanced. i guess there is not much better than this, maybe try something crazy!?

as per my comment below, the idea os a studio is to have the faces in light. I believe you need to work out where the light comes from

if this is your first attempt, I congratulate you. my first studio attempts were not as good as yours and that should encourage you to make more experiments. I am sure you are already doing better
