This image of Jacob was taken in the same back yard as his sister.Â Â The differences are subtle between the two.Â I do like the backgroundÂ and her expression. But as I said in the post a few days ago, that is just 2 aspects of a great portrait.Â Â There are quite a few problems. Â Two obvious ones?Â Poor hand placement andÂ its out of focus and a blob in the middle of the photograph and her eyes show too much white, losing the pupils.
Others are:Â Her skin is blown out (no detail in the white on her arm), which makes her arm seem bigger. Â Her right arm is poorly cropped (itÂ just disappears and falls out of the photograph)Â and her left elbow is cropped out of the frame.Â
The perspective of the photographer is looking up at her which shortens her eyes.Â She is a gorgeous girl, but this image would make her looking even prettier if the camera was at a higher angle.Â Last issue is the strong leading line of the fence, but rather than taking me to her face, it takes me to her arm.Â
These are things a qualified professional would usually catch.
What did this photographer do for the client?Â Did she provide a custom book with neat designs? Offer a gorgeous wall portrait with properly exposed skin tones?Â Give her retouched and enhanced photographs to hand out to her friends?Â No.Â
"Here's the Disk."Â
That's not Professional, that's not Art, that's notÂ customer service, that's a cop out.Â
As a Senior, I think you deserve better.
