    The last one has to be my favorite. I think they are very well done. The others are lacking something I can’t really put my finger on, but since I can’t, consider it a good thing. Overall, I think you’ll see a lot of business!

    From one photographer to another, keep on truckin.

    @bmo88:  Yeah, I think the flatness is what’s getting me (“Sharpness” was coming to mind when I was pondering it.) But truthfully, if I were a consumer that probably isn’t the first thing I’d go looking for. I have trouble with flatness myself, so I think that’s why it jumped out at me, so to speak.

    Still, I like them, and I think you’ll definitely see interest.

    I think you are doing a great job!  If I were your friend I would be really excited if you offered to take pictures for me!

    Hey, nothing beats free! I’d do a photo session with someone for free, and yours look very nice!

    As a photographer, I like them. My favorites are the last one and the third one. The first two are a little heavy on the dark tones…I don’t know the exact lingo for it. What equipment are you using? What are you doing for processing?

    Gimp is a photoshop rival that is free. I use it a lot, it might have some more tools you might find useful. http://www.gimp.org/

    You’re doing a good job with a fairly standard lens. Would you consider splurging on a “pancake” lens? They have good usage in lower light situations and can be used for the portraits you’re trying to do. Just a suggestion if you’re trying to dabble more.

    I’m not big on post-processing, but if you are going to get more serious it would be a big help to invest in a “lite” program.

    The best thing to learn is to just do it! I think you should definitely do free sessions with friends and family! Take your camera everywhere, no matter if it’s specifically for taking photos or not! Just snap away! Learning your camera will be one of the best things to do, and there are SO MANY blogs and ways to learn without even taking classes! 

    The next thing I would focus on is editing in photoshop! You can make a really bad picture look amazing if you know how to edit it right! Read tons of tutorials and stuff that is out there on the internet!

    I think you are doing a great job 🙂 lots of people get a fancy camera and automatically start calling themselves a photographer, but if you really take the time to learn you can become great! Lighting is key, you are so right!

    Continue doing what you are doing, and taking pictures and learning and editing everything!!!!

    Your family and friends will love you haha
