My brother and I had our photography date today. It started with each of us taking our own pictures. It ended with him as the model and me taking all the pictures. I think he would be a great model. He follows direction very well and he seems very at ease in front of the camera. Here are a few and they are quick edits in photoshop.
Would really like CC on the colors. They all look different with skin tones and such. I just can't keep consistancy even though they were all exposed very similar (all exposed pretty well).
1/50 f/3.2 100
1/80 f/3.2 100
1/200 f/2.2 100
1/250 f/1.8 100 (may be too soft?)
1/160 f/2.5 100
1/500 f/2.2 100

wow these are great! and your brother is a cutie well lets see... #1 I see a bit too much yellow and a little bit of magenta in there. #2 looks just about right. maybe a smidge too cool but i'm not too sure. #3 i see magenta on the right side of his face and neck and ears, and just a bit of yellow too. #4 skin tone looks just about right actually. doesn't look too soft to me. #5 i feel like this one is a bit darker than the rest. maybe some brightening? skin tone looks ok to me. #6 hahaha looks like he's saying "are you done yet?" maybe needs a bit of brightening and i see a bit of magenta in certain spots but its those spots that are usually more red/magenta than other spots.
i can't wait to practice on my brother! he loves his picture taken. It's so nice to take pictures of someone who doesn't move every second. lol isn't it? i wish i could do it more often.
Thanks so much Loida! I see the yellow in 1 and 3. Now I've just got to figure out how to change all of those things Or I guess I could just try to redo the SOOC.
Sarah, I've got the Canon T1i and I used the 50mm 1.8 for all of these pictures. You can get the Canon XS refurb kit with a new 50mm 1.8 for just under $500 from Adorama. That's basicly the same camera (just newer) that I learned on.
Oh Jen, I'm just popping in quickly before dinner to say *SWOON*, he is such a cutie!!! heheh ) I love your pics, they look awesome, only 1 or 2 might need a color adjustment but they look awesome.

great job, colours are different but I'm not one to help on that one.
3rd one not loving, eyes looks weird to me
the two further away look a bit oof like it fell somewhere else but I'm not 100% sure I can't see where.
LOVE the last one

I found a Rebel Xs kit used on adorama.com for $350 said to be in excellent condition. Would this be a good buy? I would probably have to save for the 50mm lens since we have so many expenses the next couple of months I would probably still have to beg for my hubby to spend for the camera but since it is my birthday Monday and then Mother's day...
Sorry I'm taking over your thread!
saw these on FB. awesome catchlights in these! I like the comp/expression best of the first but I think your SS was a bit on the slow side. if you had increased your ISO, you could have gone with a faster SS and also let in more light. of course, the yellow might be throwing me off, as I'm seeing a lot here. the second one is definitely exposed better than the first. the third has too much magenta going on.
wish you had numbered these, losing track in my replies here.
exposure looks great in 4, but the last two seem to need a little more light.
