My year in People :D (pic heavy)

Okay so I know I don't get people to practice on as often as some but its getting better every week, having more opportunities than before.

So I thought I would share my year in people and let you tell me what I may or may need more practice on.

I still suck at skin tones but am trying to learn. But hey, HHCC wanted if you have time Biggrin

This is when I was happy just to get focus and catchlights Biggrin

yay glad you're getting some people practice (but I can't talk I don't get much people or non people practice).

Can you number them?
Well I suck at skin tones too so I can't comment on how to improve. The one in the playground structure looks a bit gray. Her eyes look a bit off in colour from the other pics of her (although I know those structures really change the lighting so could be that).
Not sure if it's a personal pref but I think I'd like the baby on the hand/arm as a horizontal rather than vertical to save the finger chop and maybe go more with the flow of the subject.

You've def nailed focus/catchlights. I think the only thing to work on is comp

Can I just say I LOVE improvement threads! You are doing so great!

I'll cc a couple b/c I don't have too much time-

The one of your sister (?) holding her belly with the blue background- you might want to edit/clone out the wrinkle in the fabric.
B&W are a little flat. No suggestions on those though b/c mine are too! Wink
#19- baby in net thing- love this one!
#25- love the hat and comp!
#20- great capture!

I love #5, 7, and 8, and #28! you're doing great! I was practicing with catchlights last night....Eva was totally uncooperative so I used my hubby and then my cat! LOLOL but I'm getting there! Smile

I agree about redoing the crop on the hand/baby B&W pic too, it'd look better with a horiz. crop.
