    He's doing great, trying to walk and talk. Drooling the same in the process! I was just telling my wife the other night I haven't taken too many pics of him lately... been probably about 3 weeks plus. I should have some this weekend though. I'll be sure to post some! :)

    all of them are great pics. in terms of the set, i think 4 is the weakest.

    Great business card designs. I love the tonality and contrast/colors. I've been trying to find a good tutorial to get that desat/high contrast feel but I'm yet to find something that looks close to what I want. Details?

    all good, but 1, 2 are especially so.
    3 is less so..but the set overall..very strong.


    Excellent color, use of light/dark.
    Composition is flawless. Clean and strong balance of shapes, eye-leading, and elements.

    If you're not a professional, you could easily be.

    and I rarely say this --> post more of your work.

    I guess the only thing left is for fusion to pout about how unfair/biased/foc A&P is.

    thanks a lot broham :bowdown:

    thanks man! i never work with presets in lightroom. i always start from the beginning and try to find out, what makes a picture unique. first of all i start with the over color balance. i first try to get as much detail out of a picture as possible but still keep it realistic (note: dont use too much fill light to make it look like a bad HDR pic). if you want, i can post a before and after plus all the edits that i have done to the pic. just tell me which you want to see ^^

    thanks very much mate! that comment gave me confidence. i will try to get some paid assignments in the near future. i will definately post more as soon as i get my hands on new pics ^^

    thanks!

    thank you, good sir!

    :bowdown::cool::x: thanks

    The first and the second one have a very cool look to them (both in temp and cool-ness). :bigthumb: Either one would be good by me if you can lay it on me brotha

    I tried those presets on totally different pics and it turns out terrible lol. Anyway, you can see the kinds of sliders I have used to get the effect as seen above. Hope they are helpful to you

    Thanks so much. You obv used very soft lighting to begin with so they're just little tweaks on already great images

    I think you do a great job of capturing texture and color to really create a nice mood. Your compositions are really nice too. Overall great work. :)
