Thread: Decided to try

    Default Decided to try

    I've decided to try to get certified. I've ordered the book that's recommended and it should be here wednesday. I've uploaded the images that I thought might be good. Let me know what you think good or bad. Also can you submit collages or just untouched images?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Allyson.

    Congrats on deciding to go for it. As for the collages, I'm not sure, but the images do not have to be untouched. They just want to see them as you would present them to a client as a finished product.

    Hope that helps.

    Allyson -
    Congrats on starting down the road to Certification! Just a quick answer for the question about collages - yes, you can use them, but know that the images within the collage will be looked at individually, so you're actually putting yourself more at risk (potentially) by submitting collages - if there is one image within the collage that is not strong, it could discount the entire collage itself. Does that make sense? So, short answer is yes. Long answer is, I wouldn't do it if it were me.

    That makes sense, thanks!

    I've decided to try to get certified.
    Why not just decide to get certified instead?

    Allyson, your studio work is right on target, but I wouldn't include any of your outdoors work with blown out backgrounds. The mantra is "shoot into the dark" - i.e. your subject should be the brightest object in your image. And watch your background, there is a tree coming out of your bride's head...

    Hi Allyson, the studio work looks good, with nice directional light, but everything outdoors is all flat lit, as if either on camera flash or no light at all. Do you have anything outdoors lit with off camera lighting? Also, there is one photo of a full length bride alone in a church, lit with on camera flash. I would take that one out of the lineup.

    Thanks for your help guys, I usually only use reflectors outside, I really don't like the look of on camera flash
