    Default Shots of a 12 yr old

    I have done some shots for my friends before but this was the first time I did a 12yr old boy. Give me a 12 yr old girl and I could come up with 100 ideas but a boy?
    As a mother of 4 boys this should be in the bag for me but I was still nervous wondering if he was at that (This is so dumb mom age) Wellhe was a little shy but after I asked if he knew how to skip rocks in the river he opened up.
    Here are a few of the shots I got. All edited in lightroom. cc please
    These were taken with my new tamron 28 75mm 2.8lens

    Tia, I think these look great!

    Slight elbow chop in the first, but doesn't bother me too much...he looks very comfortable. Could possibly bump up color just a little bit more!

    I love the idea of this one and I think he will too. Technically, I think focus is on is hat and a little glare on the glove, but his eyes still draw me in... I like the perspective!

    I would like to see a different crop on this one. I think there is nice exposure on his face given the shadow from the helmet...would like to see a closer crop OR a fuller view.

    I think you did a great job!!! Can't wait to see more from you!

    Thanks for the cc I always look for hand and foot chops but I nedd 2 remember elbows as well. The shot with the helmet was the in camera crop and since he was in the shade I moved him... so it was the only one I took. I did crop in tighter. Do you think this is better or no?

    Tried bumping up the color and I DO like it better. I only bumped up the vibrance? Is there a better way to do this in lightroom? Here is the 2nd one with more color.

    I think you did a great job! LOVE the second one! Great image, such intensity to the eyes, and still with great light in them in spite of the hat!

    I think you did a great job too! I bet the kid likes the last 2 too! I always remember hating my pictures as a kid, but I would have loved some that incorporated my sports at the time.

    How do you like the lens?

    I do like the tighter crop for #3! That might just be me though...?

    And I think your edit of #1 looks good too, but somebody who can "see" color better than I can might weigh in on that.

    As I scrolled through again those eyes in #2 grabbed me again. Great job!

    I like these a lot, except in #1 there isn't any light in his eyes. Otherwise I like it a lot.

    I like the tighter crop of #3 too!

    Did you get any shots of him skipping rocks then?

    Thanks everyone!

    Katie, I LOVE the lens. Just looking thru my pics on my camera I can tell which were taken with my 50mm and which ones were taken with the tamron. I was a bit nervous cause after the lens shipping and my warranty, it was a little over 550.00. As soon as I took my first shot I realized it was worth every penny! I took 4 months to talk myself into hitting buy and now I wish I had done it sooner!

    Amy, thankyou I did not notice that right away but I will look for it more. This board is really responsible for helping me grow!

    Candace, I do like the crop better. I saved it like that for the disc so thanks!

    Why is he grainy and a little oof? I know my iso was 500 cause we were under a bridge but I am shooting with the 60d and it can handle that. ss was 1/200 and ap was f/2.8. to let the light in.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh and AMY I did get shots of him skipping rocks but not anything good. I was focused on making him feel like he was showing me something. I never told him I had 4 boys(hes Tysons friend but does not know the rest of the fam) and that I skip rocks all the time

    Heres the grainy pic
