pictures of other people (that i took)

as i've booked more gigs lately (paying ones at that!), i've continued to practice on other people at an even more obsessed rate. i don't know if my pictures have gotten better or worse, but i know that taking them has gotten easier. knowing how to position someone relative to the sun, getting the light i want, nailing the poses, taking one or two shots instead of ten of the same exact picture, and knowing what to say when people ask 'what do you want me to do??'. it's an incredibly challenging yet intoxicating process and i only want to keep improving with time. they aren't anything too special yet as i kind of want to nail composition and exposure before i get into more challenging areas, but i'm getting more excited about the outcomes of my pictures lately. also, i've learned to downsize my editing and for the most part, these are largely unedited save for brightening in a couple areas!

p.s. if i can keep it up, i'm hoping i can turn this 'pictures of other people that i took' thing up regularly and keep posting my photography as it develops. it's already fun to look back on and it's fun to document.

I am so excited to see your photography develop. I've been taking pictures for years but you've reinvigorated my love for the art form. It's a blessing that I get to study photography in school and that I'm already doing what I want at such a young age. These pictures are really pleasant and I can't wait to see you tackle even bigger projects :).

These are quite spectacular. The one with the green brick wall and the window are very stunning. These adjectives aren't doing too much justice.

I want that girl's hair!

Can't wait to see other updates like this. Do you have a Flickr, by chance?

These are so awesome! I cannot believe yo're just a beginner. If you're this good now, I can't wait to see your pictures when you get more experience! Have you just been learning by practicing?
