honestly, i think all these shots, very atypical snappish style. jUst honEst.

why?

1.though this is a event, with lotsa human traffic and stuff, ALL your shots background constitutes of highly distracting background. we would at least expect some to be of acceptable closeups and stuff... :dunno:

2.its quite obvious that strong direct flash was used. The result? ppl faces turn red. or brings unneccessary, undue attention to other objects that reflect.

3. What were u trying toachieve in the shots? if its just for u to smile and say, 'i was there before...' u are there already. Congrats.

lemme think, the fact that u are posting so few shots, are these your BEST shots? if yes.. i think u gotta re-think abt the way u shoot photos.

sorry. but these are my frank and honest opinions to your :think: , photographs?

Interesting analogy there. Maybe photos with a lot of bokeh to blur out the background or photoshop to white out the background might do better? :)

I supposed the number of shots that I've posted here aren't as few as http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=86906

What am I trying to achieve you ask? Well though it's a volunteer shoot, I still treat it as a client-photographer relation and ask what kind of shots they are looking for. If it's an event, what do you think? :D

That's a thought. Maybe I should start shooting headshots of people without any expression. ;)

nah.. no need so mah fan.. just shoot right at the the start u dun have to bother abt PS. :bsmilie:

as for the headshots. Expressionless? What was i trying to portray in that shot? think again. To bring out the foray of uniform groups in DHS. My end in mind was to have a picture file with 4 uniform groups in each quarter. Hence for the expressionless view.

my few as in, are these the best u can do?

:think:
