Photography Question 
Jagadeesh Andrew Owens
 

Constructive Criticism Requested!


 
 
Please review the photo that I shot of my grandfather and great aunt holding hands. I wanted to really get the age of them across, but I would like any suggestion or ideas as to how the shot could be better. Thanks!

Jagadeesh Andrew Owens   Accidentally deleted the picture connected to question. It's in my gallery, though.

Linda Buchanan   I am not qualified to give you technical advice, but I want to tell you that I just love this photograph. It is so moving. I have always enjoyed photos of handholding between adults and small children, but this is even better than that.

  I like it too Andrew. My question is; is there more of their hands to show? I would probably crop the background to the left side, include more of the wrist and the thumb on the bottom.

  I like it too..but I would also like to see more hands. Maybe shot from a little higher angle. good job though it still works!

Jagadeesh Andrew Owens   This is the best shot that I ended up with. All the shots I took of their hands was candid, so I didn't pose them to get a "perfect" shot. I can't crop any to show more wrist and thumb, because this is the whole image. What about the black and white tones? Are they good?

  Personally I'd like it a slight bit brighter and a little more cropped on the left but that is just me. we all have different eyes and if you like it that is all that matters...I would love this if it was my grandfather so be proud of it.
