    Anybody willing to give some C&C?

    I have been shooting for about 5 months on a Nikon D70s as a hobby and use my 12-24mm and my 50mm primarily. I really want to get better at taking more crisp and "glossy" looking pics. The style of photo im trying to achive can be found here.

    www.cali2006.com

    These are some shots taken from a mini portfolio on myspace, so I think the resolution suffers but let me know waht you think.

    Thanks.

    You need to use more Ricer angles.

    Right Nick?



    I think they're good. You definitly have your own style.

    They all have a sort of 'cinematic' style to them.

    Jared,

    I use the wide angle pretty often, so that may be the reason. Any ideas for improvement?

    I would have put the guy to the right and not cut off the side of his face.

    Yeah, the reflection is definitely what catches my eye about it, just think the framing could be better. If it turned out that it didn't work as well, you could always crop it, but at least the rest of his face would be there as an option.

    more selective coloring, borders and watermarks would add a lot too. Go for a 1d canon, and try to shoot mostly with broncolor and big sofboxes only.

    Thanks man! I'll include borders and water mark my work.

    Also, what do you mean by selective coloring?

    And what is broncolor?

    You took those with a D70s? :eek3:

    I can't imagine what your work would look like if you were even shooting a D200...
