70-200mm 2.8 IS | 2.8 | ISO 800 | 1/250's

I took this pictures because my brother wanted a new facebook picture but I don't know if it is even worthy for that? let me know what you think, he wanted to show off his camera but still look casual

yeah it's fine. why ISO 800 though? it's nice, the only thing that bothers me is the branch above his head.

it's been very cloudy here lately. 800 ISO would make sense.

Thank you for the back up, @palakaboy

it has been overcast and it was actually drizzling when we took the shot

I know what you mean about the branch

and 800 on a full frame looks great so I don't see any harm in boosting my ISO anymore

Good pic, very natural looking. Just blur out the branch so it blends into the background...

I shot at about 135mm which on a full frame is about 85mm on a 1.6 crop

just a favorite because I feel the photo comes out looking a little flat past 135mm i don't know if that is true but it seems that way to me

and yeah I think the branch needs to blend it was literally right above his head and this was the only place I could put him in my front yard that didn't have cars behind him.

To me a tre is better than a giant SUV ahahah

i like it, but have seen the quality of other photos you can do, maybe something jazzier, or a picture of him taking a picture of something?
or maybe a more casual pose, like him sat on steps, elbows on knees, with holding camera limply, just an idea.

@neil thanks for the compliment/criticism :D

I understand what your saying, i have a problem taking pictures that are "safe" and don't experiment enough because I am afraid that the photos will come out poorly

But i understand that its nice to see other poses of people and it makes it pop when the model is in a different position

I think Ill try to shoot one right now ~

any other comments or criticisms welcome

thanks so much everyone
