Hi, My name is Crystal and I am new here. Looking forwards to learning what I can from Street Club Winter School! 

Thank you in advance for critiquing!

I like the first one, people at work, I don’t see any interesting thing on the second one, and the third one is interesting but would have been better a photo of his face with the hat on.

Thank you, Juor. I have an image of him with his hat on, but I was not happy with the result. I had too many unnecessary noise in the background, his ankles were cut off and so was part of his hat. I was using a 50 mm lens for the first time so that didn’t help. I think my iso was too high as well. I was very nervous with the camera, and I do not want to stand out to the others, being the one taking the pictures. But I am interested to hear what you/anyone thinks. It helps!

Basic advice: show all three colour or all b&w, have all three in either 3:2 or 4:3 or 16:9. Picture #1 hard to see whats going on, could use a fill flash. The sepia toning is an odd choice. Picture #2 get closer/lower, shallow depth of field, as it is a boring pointless picture. Picture #3 too constrained by the 16:9 framing, maybe better to position yourself slighly behind him, overlooking both the artist and the artwork. Dull, flat light would be improved with flash and diffuser (or go b&w no flash if you are closer and can work with the shapes/forms in monochrome).
