I did a SLR basics day at picture inspire on Saturday, which mainly covered portrait photography, so I thought I'd post some of the results. The main thing I learnt is that I really don't have a clue about trying to get models to pose, the good photo's tended to be when either someone else, or the model came up with a pose! Must try and research next time. 1 IMG_3128 by apretext, on Flickr Annoyingly, this one came out a bit noisy, and her left arm is a bit blown out. Must remember to drop the ISO to 800 in future when shooting inside. (this was at 1600). 2 IMG_3096 by apretext, on Flickr Really happy with the focus and DOF on this one, even if the composition is a little uninteresting. 3 IMG_3094 by apretext, on Flickr The guy who rant the course pointed out that if you have your models legs pointed towards you, they tend to look fat (even though they weren't!), so I'll avoid that in future. Still, other than unflattering legs, happy with this one. 4 IMG_3081 by apretext, on Flickr One of the first from the day. C&C welcome.
