I have yet to find a good forum where I can accually learn from my mistakes and have some good opinions so I decided after reading this forum for a while to post some of my stuff.

This was a shoot I did for a custom 3-peice wheel company I am the photographer for. I'm 14 years old, so I have alot to learn. Any comments and critique welcome.

on the first two, be careful with the halo effect when using the dodge/burn tool or whatever method you're using the darken the foreground and background.

some of the angles aren't helping the photo, ie #3

#3 is gorgeous.

Your flashed shots are aren't as good as your daylight shots. You haven't exactly nailed the art of distributing the light of the flash across the body of the car.

Def. agree with the night shots being less impressive than my daylight shots. It was my first time with the strobes as well. It was pitch dark out there too. Thanks for the comment on #3.

Agreed. Nice daylight set. Looks right at home in a wheel catalog.

very nice work, especially for only being 14.... (and btw, I don't want to see you in an NWS threads in here, got it :mamoru:) hopefully they're paying you, and paying you fair market value because IMO the work, while it's not perfect, is worth it.
