Critiques

by Laufoo

This piece evokes a cool, metropolitan feel. The casual smoke counterpoints the glow of her face from the sun quite well. Additionally ...


Excellent shot! I like the dynamic between the model to the left and the couple, a good sense of emotion showing... :) I'm a little less...


The composition of this shot is excellent, with enough negative space to truly emphasize the subject with making it too stark. The colo...

So... It's been a while...

A lot has changed in my life since I last wrote a journal entry here... My wife has decided to move out and though we're still technically married, it's in name alone. It hurt, badly, but after a while I decided to pick myself up and keep going. I'm alone for basically the first time in my life, standing on my own two feet, and you know, I'm making it. It made me realize the things that had once ignited a fire in me were nothing but a slow burning ember now, so I've set out to do more, be more.

With that being said I sincerely hope to start posting on here more. I've missed the feedback, the friends, the little part of me that was tied to my interactions here. :) As it's the dead of winter, my outdoor shooting will probably be lacking, but I'll just have to see what I can find inside... :)

Thank you for listening. You'll see me soon. :)
