Metro Shots

This is one I personally enjoyed, but I haven't really heard any comments on it so I would like to see what someone would like to say about it if they were asked.


Also as a bonus i'll throw in this photo http://fav.me/d3jm9u7 which is one of my more popular pictures at the moment.

I think its a good picture that could be made better with some posing adjustments. The exposure and colors look good and the background is interesting in that it frames the characters head.

Posing feedback:
1. Usually people look better when their hips, head and shoulders are at an angle to the camera. The right foot is back so you could have the person turn their right hip back, right shoulder towards the back.
2. If there are two body parts, try and make them at different levels. The eye and shoulders are at the same plane, drop one shoulder and tilt the head so the eyes are on two planes.
3. I'd feature the weapon a little more.

I'd compare this picture to: MetroCon: Send me An Angel. It's much more dynamic.

I like that you're tying the background colors to the costume.

Generally straight-on shots are not very interesting. I agree with Rander that angling your subject would be more dynamic. Also, try experimenting with a lower or higher angle. This can be as simple as kneeling down or climbing up some stairs.

Your second shot "Send me An Angel" works well because of the angle and use of color. All the lines in the photo (the ax, her arm) lead to the subject's face, which makes the portrait more engaging.
Private shoots available!

They were straight-on like ByeByeBeautiful said but they were good, I though personally. ^^*
