Girl portrait

photo critique

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I love your youtube videos! They are amazing. πŸ™‚

Anyways, I’m Jeffrey . I’m 16, and I’ve been doing photography for about a year.
I just wanted some opinions on a couple images I took of my cousin, then edited.
Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

thank you for your submission. I appreciate the time you took to prepare and send and that tells me you are passionate about photography. Β Also you had a good model for your portraits. As a general comment I can see you are on a learning path and you are in the right direction. Composition is good, not sure if by intent or it just happened to make sense with the girl laying down, but there is not much you can do about it if you choose this style. I am not overly impressed with the blue faded portrait is it does not appeal to me in any shape of form. You might be enthusiastic about the technique you have discovered, but th eimage is to faded and there is no impact. A clear black and whote would have been better. It looks like an accident or a washed out old photo and it does not bring any value

The model is beautiful enough to save the image below from an average look. You are responsible for the image you select for showing other people and it is your skill to make the model to pose. in this case the image abve is better than the one below. Also not overly impressed with the high saturation level. You might want to tone it down a bit is this too much

Jeffrey,

I believe you have got a lot of potential and I wish to see more work from you, but try to work on the content first rather than over post production, however the content is there already.

I hope this helps and feel free to leave your comments and share this with your peers
