What do you think about this? My Uncle helped give me a few tips!

I think you could sell the tie quite easily with that photo – is it for sale? 🙂 I like how the background goes really well with the subject, but stays very much the background. Also, +1 on the 1:1 aspect ratio. My only comments would be that the two sleeves are not identical (you can see the shirt only on the right arm) and that the left thumbnail needs a bit of scrubbing/manicure to make it perfect.October 17, 2016 at 3:09 pm #19524
Actually, yes! It’s even on sale lol. You can find it here. Good thinking… Will have to do a retake. 😉October 18, 2016 at 7:23 pm #19559
Maybe reducing the highlights a bit? It probably won’t really help the blown portion of the thumb of the right hand, but I think that it will give the colored lines on the tie more texture, especially those on the top.March 28, 2017 at 7:04 pm #22497
I’m not exactly a fan of the intensely saturated look (in the hands especially). Makes me not exactly trust how the picture represents the color of the tie. Nice composition though. Love the high-contrast look as it matches the ritzy style.March 29, 2017 at 3:42 pm #22533
Now that you mention it, I agree. I’m not sure how I could fix that without a retake…March 29, 2017 at 7:27 pm #22540
It mostly depends on if you still have the original photo, or if you saved the edited version over the original.March 30, 2017 at 2:16 pm #22550
I have the original, but it looks pretty much just as saturated…. 😕March 30, 2017 at 2:19 pm #22551April 10, 2017 at 1:27 pm #22802
Ok, good to know! It probably means then that the saturation comes from the great contrast created by the direct source of light and the warmer-than-natural white balance.April 10, 2017 at 2:26 pm #22806
@jamesstaddon, you nailed it! Will have to do a retake with LED lights and see if that makes a difference!April 17, 2017 at 4:03 pm #22900May 12, 2017 at 1:45 pm #23287
Much better, for sure! Nice colors. Hands and white cuffs seem oddly dark to me, but perhaps you edited it that way to emphasize the tie. Attached is a slightly brightened version. Certainly don’t want to wash out colors in the tie though.May 23, 2017 at 4:55 pm #23511May 24, 2017 at 10:09 am #23523
The last one is a lot nicer for sure! 🙂 However I think it is kind of awkward that you can see the top of the jeans, it probably is because you couldn’t find the angle you used the last time. 🙁
