I suggest grab a friend to model for you, your photos will turn out a little better when you're behind the camera fully, another cool technique that you could add to this one is maybe paint with some light to enhance the scene...
I know, it could be cool to have a photographer with me but I don't know anyone. I will have to do it by myself. I want to use much shallower DOF and have the background less sharp. I also want to take it from a different angle or in another place so that there would be a better composition. Maybe also I could have a better clothes.
I will go to try it next week. This was just a test of this technique. Thank you for the tips.
Boo, This is a great Halloween picture. But I don't know if you have such a holiday were you live. But on October 31 here children go out in costumes and ask for candy from the neighbors. The very young go with their parents. Do people there celebrate Halloween or do anything in your country on October 31st?
Yes, I am in the Western US. I didn't put it on my profile, because I figure if anyone wanted to know they would ask like you did. Everyone that comes to my profile page doesn't have to know or necessarily want to know. So now you know. Just don't ask my age. I am trying to forget that...Lets just say older than you...
But if you fill the state and age, it would be much better. You have to have a reason for it. I think it is good if people can read it. I asked you about it because you didn't write it there, not because I wanted to ask you.
I also think it is not bad at all to be older than me. There is no need to hide your age. A bad age doesn't exist!
