What do you think?
I'm the one with the cap.
No dirty comments about my little sister
You guys are very Swedish... in a good way.
Just because I'm a photo major at college, the background and the floor space don't blend very well... but the guy on the right has the thinnest ankles ever!
Cool pics, cool look!
Why does the bass player have to be in the back?
The floor and background is the same piece of paper. It got dirty when we moved around. I guess I could photoshop that right out.
The guy taking the photos is my (half)sister's father. He a fashion fotographer and music video director. He was kind enough to do us a favour.
I hear you!
In the case it is justified. I'm paralyzed in my feet, so I can't stand up front. I'd fall over and ruin the foto session. I always lean on my amp on stage and pretend I'm John Entwistle.
People are so used to bassists standing in the back with the drummer no one ever realizes it is the only way for me to be on stage, unless I'm hanging from a rope or something
i like it ,
but i think it would be better as a " head shot " ,
or , from the waist up ... all those legs look too tangled up .
no offense intended ,
just my opinion ...
nice lookin' sister
Wow! I bet it takes considerable effort for you to play on stage. I'm glad you don't let that stop you.
That's a nice shot.
The blank white background is the new brick wall.
Have you seen this site?
I did a sloppy clean up job in photoshop just to see an all white background. Is this better?
I think it looked fine the way it was. Whats wrong with having a floor?
I have been doing bio shots for years and years.
blk and white and cropped to a head/facial shot.
Sorry if this dosent show my expierence but If took all of 4 seconds.
I put in the last one I did to back up the talking smack (and it was tken outdoors in winter so the lighting sucked. took hours of burning/dodging highlights and shades to get it not washed out.
PLus I removed a flagpole and half of grand truck station in downtown motown.
I like it! Any reason why you made in black and white?
99% of all head shots are black and white.
Colors become distracting when a potential employer/agent yada... yada... it scrutinizing the photo and its contents.
[I dont remeber why it originated]
but it takes the picture to the essentials, the content.
I'd probably burn the background color to grey, to make your faces contrast more from it and to make your faces the most salient feature.
I removed all other features, I.e. legs etc to make the focus on your faces. Its a good canvas and the following editing would be cake!
There are a couple problems with your crop tribal:
- It's an odd shaped crop, wouldn't print well as an 8x10
- Most people want to see "head shot" style pictures as a portrait style setup, upright... vertical you know.
- The crop is strange with that guy's elbow missing
Max: I wasn't suggesting the floor be removed, I was merely suggesting that the photographer should have blended the edges of the floor into the white background, as to not create that awkward jump.
As you can see, it was done to some extent, but it wasn't brought forward enough. I like being able to see the floor space, but it should be lighter. But I'm just nitpicking.
... beat me to it~!
