    Had to shoot a few assignments for the school yearbook.

    1st was the Green Week Fashion Show (good fashion (debatable) at a low cost and using organic materials)...

    #1 Girl looks broken. Pelf doesnt help. Reminds me of the silent hill nurses.
    #2/3/4 Are definitely pictures of people. I guess thats what youre going for?
    #5 is pretty neat actually. I would have reshot it without the guy right behind him. Other than that, I really like it.
    #6 is ok
    #7 I dont like the tree in the BG. nitpicky, I know...but it still bothers me. Everything else is so clean and linear and then you have that tree. I do like the reflection. I probably would have shot it in a different way and capitalized on that fact that there is a reflection there.
    #8 has a gigantic white laser beam of death in it. wtf.

    1 just makes the girl look awkward as hell, like she has no clue how to pose. 2 and 3 aren't bad, but nothing stands out as great either. 4 another awkward pose, not as bad as the first one though. 5 is good, without the people in the background it would be great. does the exchange student always squint that bad or was it just too bright out?

    cool, thanks for the comments. i agree with most everything. the tree in 7 was unavoidable, but it pissed me off too.


    :cool:

    yeah, they didn't know how to pose, it was just an informal small thing on campus with random students, it was more just for fun than anything else.

    yes, i asked the kid to move several times but he kept going back :mad:

    so i finally just gave up and shot them anyways.

    yeah it got pretty bright when I did the last set of portraits, but he squinted a good bit naturally. i know for a fact the one against the brick wall was very shady and no sun in his eyes.

    I know, I actually talked to him and he said they may hire me to come out and shoot one of their events, which would make for much cooler shots :cool:

    5 is the best, i like how the persons body follows/mimics the lines of the building behind him. But that other guy in the pic is distracting

    With the exception of #5, they were pretty meh. the reasons have already been stated above. That'd be pimp if they do contract you for a few of their events though, good luck with that.
