nice photos, but i think you shouldn't exaggerate with the effects, for example in the baby photo, you should have uploaded the original version - probably a softer and more pleasing to the eye, its a baby, something pure...

I think you're mainly using some USM and some High Pass sharpening filters..

Yeah I mean you get "little" bit of the Dave Hill look through this process, but to be honest with you, I don't really think it works for all shots. The lighting has to be right and it needs to be a nice wrap-around lighting to really get a nice effect with USM and HP filters and dodge/burn etc'...

I think you're taking some great candid shots though! Keep it up, and try some different edits with a more natural appearance.

Best,
-Sean.

I'm not a fan of the style either, probably because the editing doesn't add anything to technically poor photography. Although it can be good to place the people in context, I find most the backgrounds too distracting as there is too much going on. Sdrummer has said that they're candid shots, but I'd disagree on that as they are obviously posed and knowing that the camera is there.

Odd why I chose to use the word candid :lol:

Wrong word choice on my part. I wanted to say casual, but I said candid instead... :? , sorry.

No need to apologise. I guessed that's what you intended. I think "casual" is the more appropriate term as these do feel like images more for the family album than anything.
