    not my famirly, but some shots I did.

    Got paid for the day of shooting, but haven't heard back for the print order. When I ask, it's like 'oh, right. We need to get you those frames so you can print and matte em. Lemme do that and get em to you...'


    Did I fuck the shots up?

    (sorry, no images here at work other than the web galleries....)

    Pics look pretty good, but I'm laughing at the 3rd picture from the ones they liked. The guy has a complete pedo grin, the little girl is crying, and the baby is trying to squirm out of his arms :rofl:

    I think the flash lighting is a little harsh in a few, I see some bright spots in some of the foreheads, but all in all I think you did a pretty good job.

    thanks.

    Yeah, some of em look hilarious. Like the parents are 80's pornstars or something...

    This was shot at high noon on a cloudless day, so I had to go a little nuts to balance out the ambient with my strobes. I'm not sure if the glare is the flash or the sun in some of em, but....

    The whole thing was an 'emergency - our other photog fell down the stairs (seriously) and it took us 6 months to get the whole family together blah blah blah....)

    I'm friends with the girl in the pink shirt with the dog, which is how I got the job in the first place...

    I like all of the ones they picked except for the 2nd and 3rd down in the left column.

    2nd down background is way too busy for me.

    your alternate pick of the 3rd is way better, but sun/shadows are way too harsh.. and I would have liked to see it wider to get the full house in the shot

    1st and 2nd on right column might have been nicer if you hadn't chopped off the hands

    their first pick.. the big group shot.. that's money. somehow you got both kids and a dog to all look at the camera. colors are nice. lighting is good. even the dog is smiling.
