    Nice lighting! I don't like the fact that her head is sitting on top of the bottom of the frame and he's a bit soft....but I nitpick.

    Really strong set, I'm sure they love them.

    I think this one would look better off-center though. like if theyre on the left third and then theres empty space to the right/top.

    5 is my favorite, but they are all good. the one in the first post would've been nice to see all of his head, but the lighting is great.

    overall good set... somethings bug me a little, like on the shots where you've cut off an arm, but had plenty of negative space on the other side... but those are just little nits. I'm sure they'll be more than happy with them.

    good point....this is very true...but also intentional. :dunno:

    I've been experimenting with doing bigger, open frames with lots of negative space.



    I used to try and "include" the whole body or body parts, but I started noticing cinematographers / films with strong cinematography.

    The closeups almost always have a tight framing with tops of heads cut off, sides of bodies....
    basically anything that leads away from the 'interaction space' between 2 people.

    ...like so...

    showing the top/back of the dude's head would just dilute the frame's power...or so I'm thinking?

    Anyways, these aren't awesome examples, but hopefully it gets the jist across of what I'm playing around with...

    I mean more like in #3 where you've just cut off the hands, but have plenty of headroom and could have included them.... or in #6.
