    I have an assignment due wed. for my Photojournalism class and I was wondering what you guys could suggest on the following photos. The assignment was "environmental portraits". Basically I have to pick a minimum of 3 so I thought OT could help me pick out my best and/or suggest what I can fix before I print them out.

    It's a community college. I basically re-started college to give this a shot. I plan on going to FIT next semester :x:

    I see those more as candids, not environmental portraits.... but if I had to choose one, I'd go with 6

    Yeah, I see what you guys mean. I guess I'll just have to make up for it on the next assignment. Thanks for the feedback

    they need to be portraits, but also really show their natural surroundings, not just what they walked into kinda thing


    some shitty examples I used a long time ago (some are piss poor film scans)

    Love the surfing one. Nasty green/yellow shift on the last one.

    sort of, I wanted it yellow, the green is just the grass reflecting. This was in open shade, but a low flash to the side with a gel makes it feel like sunset :mamoru:
    that was just a digi test shot though, the one submitted was on provia :hs:
