I was referring to the photography section, and this is where these photos belong too since it's not Ranger related. So I've moved the thread there.

Photos look good though, nice and vivid colors.

I think you and TJ are too gangster to be photographers.

fixed. Get more creative on what you shoot. Go above the lines of normality on your next shoot, instead of your friend that thinks he can dance.lol

Redouble your efforts. Friends don't let friends wear a lid so low, and without at least a slight curve in the bill.

As for the photos, here's my opinion on them (except for the last one, which was clearly just a snapshot not meant to be too serious).

I think all of these should have been shot, or at least cropped, vertically. I think the pose from #3, cropped the way #1 is, would have worked well. The background is okay, but unless you're specifically trying to incorporate a background object into the frame, less is often more. I think #2 and #3 would have benefited from being zoomed in closer, since the background is somewhat distracting from the subject. Watch those wires, too. In the first 3, the wire is going straight through his head. In the majority of portraits, unless you're going for a specific artistic look, the focal point is always going to be the head and eyes. Here, that's drawing extra attention to the wires.

Do you have a tripod, or was the camera just sitting on something? The camera seems to be a little low here. If you could have elevated the camera more, and tilted it downward slightly, that would in effect move the wires up, and possibly out of the frame altogether, or at least high enough for you to crop them out without cutting his head off.

What kind of camera are you using? Does it have manual controls? If you could have used a larger aperture (smaller number) aka F-stop, that would have helped blur the background. The trees in the background are a little too in-focus. More blur behind him would both reduce the distractions and put more emphasis on the subject. But even if your camera has no manual controls, there are other ways to get effective background blur.

They are good shots overall, though. And my apologies if you didn't want to hear all that. I've just been doing this a long time, and it's impossible for me not to analyze everything about an image....

I do have a tripod, my camera was sitting on a tripod on all shots.

There's a point at where you're trying soooo hard to be gangster in a picture that you just look like a tool.
