  breanna, welcome to bp.com. you might find a better response to something in particular. to ask people to look at everything in your gallery and comment, mught not be constructive at all, and is overwhelming for most.

if there is something in particular you are wanting to know, feel free to ask. if you want a critique of a particular image, then post it here and ask what people think of it.

your images look very good.

You have a very nice gallery. I really like you child images.

My favorite images to take are people and childhood images so it was really fun to look over your gallery.

I commented on a few of them.

Thanks for sharing.

Kerby

  The old adage says, "A photographer shows you all his pictures, a professional photographer shows you his best.

In viewing the pictures in your gallery I feel there are too many that are similar. So, I recommend some ruthless [love the word] editing and deletion.

My major comment is that most of the portraits a too centered. Try placing you model [one subject] along the imaginary line of the Rule of Thirds. Also, have your model[s] turn their bodies away from a line parallel to the plane of the film/media card. You'll be surprised at how much your portraits can be improved.

  Hi Breanna;

I looked at your portfolio, and I found one print in particular that I'm goimg to pick on. In Rain, Rain, Go Away, I see the back and side of the head of a child looking out a window. I have gotten no pop from this print. Had there been a reflection of the child on the glass, or enough of the side of the face, anything to show the disappointment of the child, this would have been a great print. Another thing. You may want to diversify your talent a bit. quite a few of your prints look the same. Most will lose interest in your portfolio after a few pages. I gotta admit though. Most of your prints were well framed. Keep shooting and have a great day.

  Thank you Jerry, Kerby,John,Tracy, and Mark for looking at my post. I really appreciate what some had to say. I guess for John S. I would have to say that I am new to this and it is all for fun. I would love to make something come out of it. This is only my 2nd month in trail and error you can say. So for that being said I am pleased with everyones posts. I know that a lot of my pictures might bore some of you because they are somewhat alike, BUT to me they don't bore me. I know that the "Rain Rain go away would look better if it had a reflection in it, but to be truthful I am not for sure how to do that yet. I will look into it though. I have recently got my black and white backdrops so I am hoping to expand my BP Gallery to some new faces. I am just so new at this that I feel like I have cold feet sometimes of what others will think. After viewing a lot of emails and these posts I am pleased with the response that I got. So what with being said "thank you all for taking the time to look at my gallery." Breanna Manley

  Hi again;

If you can't get a reflection next time, try moving more to the side. Nothing captures the heart more than a child showing emotion. Happiness, sadness, disappointment, anger. Any amotion from a child strikes a cord. The best place to capture this is in the eyes. Try a side shot showing one eye. You'll see what I mean.

  Hello again Breanna;

I really like effect that black & white has on Abbie. As for Nice Weather, I was confused as to exactly what emotion Abbie was showing. Had you shot this print from a slightly lower angle and showed just a bit more of her face, this could have been a winning photograph. You will get better with each print. Don't get discouraged. Practice makes perfect. Have a great day and keep shooting.
