  • Description: This is an old picture when I went out for a photoshoot with my boyfriend. I really want to redo this shot as I've gotten so much better.

    For example, I would bring reflectors with me. There was this huge shadow in my face in the original picture and it gave the picture a lot of noise. Next time I'll bring a reflector.

    I will also walk into the frame, instead of walking out of the frame, gives it a more dynamic feeling of an entrance.

    Let's wait for sunny weather to redo this shot!

  • You're lucky to have someone there to take the picture you set up, it must be so helpful! I really like this one, I can't wait to see what you do with the new shot :3

  • To Usagi: this is allowed as long as you set everything up, direct everything etc. Someone can press the shutterbutton for you as long as you did the rest.

  • As much as it is a nice photo. This is strictly for you own photography only. Not images of yourself.
    Needless to say it is still nice.

  • The lighting could be better but the photograph is very nicely shot. I’m not thrilled about the crop of the umbrella or like you said the shadow of the prop over your face. The light yellow sort of blends in with your skin so maybe if you use a brighter yellow or a different color the clouds wouldn’t draw the eye more than you do. It needs improvement but is overall really nice.
