    My father

    My father
    I have been working for months on how to take a good photography of my parents.
    My father won't move from his chair to give me a better angle. I catched this one, while he was reading his news paper.
    This is the best photography I have taken up to now.
    I am a beginer and willing to accept your critiques.
    I am not satisfied.
    I will take more photographies if possible. With some guidance.

    IMO a closer cropping on your father as well as come color correction and increased contrast may be beneficial. What do you think? I'd be happy to remove the image is you object to the posting.

    Shooting pictures of those we love, both animal and human is very important! I wish I had more and better pictures of my mother. Although, everytime she would see a camera, she would hide her face behind her hands... That still is no excuse for not having a photo of her in her later life...

    Yes, I lost my Dear Ole' Dad a year and a half ago. I am lucky he wasn't camera shy. Richard, I love the crop.

    Thank you for taking the time, improving the colour
    and contrast,
    Cordially,
    Catalina
    P.S. I had to tell to my father that he is the only person helping my in learning to do portraits. So he changed and let me take almost 10 photos.

    Usually, it is the female of the species that doesn't want a portrait shot... However, my wife and I were in an animal shelter today picking up a Maltese mom with her five puppies when I was going to take a shot of the staff behind their counter (planning to make a print for them). The three ladies in the image were ambiguous about me shooting but, the one guy was adament that he didn't want his picture taken.

    He was a decent looking chap too, so looking bad in the image probably wasn't the problem. I wondered if he was in a witness protection program or if he was a criminal who was wanted by the police. However, I decided that it was much more likely that he was only shy...

    Most persons that I know are shy in front of the camera. Most of us don't know how to pose for a photography.
    I congratulate you for your pets. What a nice idea to carry your camera with you for such special moment.
    Sincerely,
    Catalina
