    So, I did my friend's engagement photos a couple years ago. Did it for free because they're both good friends of mine.

    Anyway, a friend of the couple saw the pictures and they both referred her to me. So, she wants some pictures taken for her website. She's going to pay $150 for about an hour of shooting, wants all images. I'll get photo credits on her website as well as a link to my flickr [:rofl:]

    anyone know where I should go in San Diego for the shoot? She wants like brick/urban type backgrounds. she's a singer/songwriter/artist

    she's pretty good, too. soo, any suggestions OTAP crew?

    good luck

    what a weird scenario for an engagement pic. so many nice places in that area like the beach and stuff

    $150 for an hour of shooting, processing time, and all digital images
    not worth it :hs:

    IMO, You want weird background. It's less competition for the main subject.
    Think about all the engagement sessions you've seen at train yards, old farm buildings, and in front of Graffiti walls.

    ok....

    http://www.anatituesday.com/wp-content/uploads/photo_2_1024x685.jpg

    this one... spare room to the left, and above her head, yet you cut off her shoulder, and her arm... I personally would have composed it to show her whole body, as well as both arms...
    ----------------------------------
    http://www.anatituesday.com/wp-content/uploads/photo_1_1024x685.jpg

    I would have framed her inside the door, rather than having the blue shoot thru her head.
    --------------------------------
    http://www.anatituesday.com/wp-content/uploads/photo_4_685x1024.jpg

    bad composition, IMO and not enough light on her face.
    ----------------------------------

    http://www.anatituesday.com/wp-content/uploads/photo_6_1024x685.jpg

    stuff in the foreground is distracting... and again.. blue line coming out of her head.
