This is for those who need to carry two cameras with lens attached. This is your chance to pitch your favorite bags. I have two Canon DSLR's and several lenses and tons of whatnot. Give me something…Continue
"I don't crop super tightly in camera because my work goes to print and a lot of people like 8x10s and other sizes that crop the image. I prefer off camera lighting to reflectors because it is easier to carry at weddings. I really need to tone…"
"Over all, Ashley, you've posted credible work. Personally, I didn't understand 37/100.
I'd try cropping a littler tighter on your long shots. Sometimes your leaving distractions in the shots.
I'd play with the lighting a little…"
"The second photo I think I would have moved the table. The fourth photo has a door knob/latch coming out of his head which a bit distracting. Over all tho, a very good attempt. A good job focusing on the eyes. You might to play with the light more.…"
The first thing that struck me was the flower growing of the gentlemans ear/shoulder and the light socket protruding from the young lady's elbow. When asking people to pose to a shot, don't just look at them, look what's…"
"Photo found on msn
Which one more interesting?
Your shot is too busy. Too much to look at. Those viewing will never understand what you want to see.
If it is the center elephant crop everything else out."
"Yes............but even mother nature needs help. Reflectors are a good start. As to what equipment you need is subjective. Everyone has their own opinions as to the "correct light" needed.

I don't crop super tightly in camera because my work goes to print and a lot of people like 8x10s and other sizes that crop the image. I prefer off camera lighting to reflectors because it is easier to carry at weddings. I really need to tone down the amount of equipment that I carry.
I love the colors in your entry. Fantastic creativity and use of your editing tools. It must just be my personal tastes but I feel the crop is a bit tight on the entry image. On the other hand I LOVE your textured border. Im not…"
"Ian.... I agree with Sandy.
