    Thank you! It was a bit difficult shooting that day. She didn't quite understand how the camera and focusing worked so for a lot of the photos she adjusted herself between the fine focus and putting the film in haha. Was also hoping to play with harsh shadows and it ended up being an over cast day. But we just rolled with it.

    I almost never have this problem, and I work with kids. :-)
    But what I do is first explain to them how I and the camera works, and then how we are communicating troughout the shoot.
    So the kids Always know which step I am taking at what time with a single word I give them.
    And when I am about to load the film I just repeat: Hold still, hold still, hold still,... taking shot: 3, 2, 1,.... badabing badabang.
    Ofcourse it does happen really sometimes they move a little bit, but that is not abnormal.
    I think I need to readjust more because I move some part of the camera (Intrepid camera: not that tight or sturdy sometimes)

    My sheepish attempt at one of my first portraits on LF

    6.5 x 8.5 inches

    Would really appreciate critique and feedback!

    Hi, Jahanzeb. This is an engaging portrait, and a great beginning!

    Not knowing exactly what you had in mind, and with inadequate experience in shooting portraits in LF, I will simply note a few aspects. I find the blank light area at upper left distracting. All those visually active edges in fairly high contrast (white against medium/dark gray) draw the eye. Second, I find the blur in most of the leaves problematic. Since the one at lower right shows the DOF, the others appear to have been moving, at least those extending back to the plant's center, where the DOF runs out. If possible, I would return to try some additional poses here; I think there is a lot of potential.

    Thank you Philip!
    I will get another shot with the sitter, but I am limited to 4 exposures as I only have two film holders. The blank space on the left is rather distracting, I am contact printing and will see if I can manage to burn in some details, get the texture of the wall and balance it out. Thank you for pointing out the leaves, it was rather windy and my untrained eyes would have never noticed how they may effect the image.


    I had hoped to capture the unruliness of the sitters hair and connect it with the wildness of the plant behind him, which is also why I felt a high contrast image may add to that effect. However it wasn't well planned out, luckily I get a chance to approach it again and will definitely keep in mind all you pointed. Thank you and I really appreciate the feedback!
