I was asked to do some figure skating portraits in town. They had photos of their kids done through the club, and I guess the skaters stood infront of a black plastic sheet and their photos were taken with flash (of some kind?)... apparently the flash blew out the background horridly. Sooo... the parents are looking for something they can hang on their wall.
I've never taken sports photos of any kind, always just a normal portrait, and heck not many of those, so I was really nervous. PLUS, it was almost 4pm which means already getting dark. I ended up making the decision to not use my softbox, I'm not 100% comfortable with it, so I figured I'd try without and if I had to reshoot then I would.
My close ups are much better than the full shots. It was getting dim, and I hesitated to crank my ISO... plus I missed my focus - whoops
How's my backdrop look?? Any advice? These are taken in my kitchen.
as for the 2nd pic.. i'd try and up the lighting on the left side of the face a little bit.. since you have a darker background, having a side of the face that is darker allows us to only really focus on the right side of her face.. so if you were to lighten the left up a little bit, i think that'd be perfect!
do you have the full before you cropped it that you can post?
