C&C please. I'm here to learn like the rest of you.
imo, if you wanted something to frame.. lose the purse, watch, sunglasses and turn both faces toward the camera
cool scar, if it was on his face he would look like a pirate
that guy used to be a major league pitcher
where's the added blur motion from photoshop?
Yeah, technically it's pretty much on point. What was the lighting set up?
something about it makes it look fake. Like they went to vegas and shot at one of those booths or something. I cant put my finger on what it is though.
Here is straight off the camera which shows the light setup. Just resized.
Thinks for the advice so far. I'm starting to bring with me a notepad of stuff to remember.
For this type shoot
remove watch, purse, sunglasses (This didn't even occur to me)
no motion blur says s40Strib (LOL Shaddup)
There were other shots where there faces were both showing but the expression here on his face looked so more natural I felt.
I like it. But I don't like the ground being lit so far back.
I love it I think the technical part of the pic looks great, but the purse and all does kill it
I was gonna say that I really like the lighting. And then you showed pics of your set up
But I think the shot would be better if:
-lose the purse
-don't smile at cameraman, instead, look at his gf's face
Balanced out the exposure a little more
Here are all the frames from that session.
the poses are all too boring, and repetitive. pickup a "flow posing" dvd

1. Lose accessories (as said)
2. angle of the photo is kind of unflattering. Would have been better if you were a little lower (below eye level, about shoulder level maybe). The current angle makes them look short.
3. Looks slightly underexposed to me (I'm on a laptop though, so it could be the screen)
4. The little sparkle of saliva in the left corner of his mouth is distracting
5. I don't really care for the pose, but that's what it is... so. Should have had her up against him, facing the camera, looking down at the ground, his arms around her.
6. Don't shoot with such a wide focal length, back up and shoot zoomed in.
good lighting and background, composition and subject needs work
Out of 50 pics you only got three or four worth mentioning.
Take a look at some pics that you admire and study where the light is coming from. Then try and duplicate that light. Next, learn how to pose people. It's not all that difficult but it can seem overwhelming at first. Here's a link that will help you to learn posing. http://jzportraits.home.att.net/
On the positive note, I love the exposure balance on the posted shot. Nice job of balancing strobes and ambient light.
