I joined a few days ago and just finished uploading first 25 of my photos.
Will appreciate your honest critique of my work (either here or directly in my profile, whatever suits you).
Basically, what's good, what's ugly. This will help me decide my future course of action.
I want to improve my artwork and build a portfolio that has the potential to sell consistently.
a lot of your work seems random. some a bit like stock and others are snap shots.
like this has no life, its a bit dull and its crooked.
i'm not sure if things like these fall under a copyright or not. but i'd like to see the entire hat. its lit well enough.
i'm not sure why you have a shot of your shoes. its odd you didn't mention feet in your keywords. instead you have motivational poster words?
a butterfly on the table makes it look dead. it would be better on a flower. the keywords while not totally spam, doesn't have anything to do with the image. more motivational stuff. and unless it has those words under the image itself, i think people will be annoyed just to see a bug on a table.
who made this art? did you make it? because you can't sell or make into stock - someone else's art unless its past copyright expiration.
for the most part, the still life's have the look like you ran around and shot the contents of your house. some of the vacation shots are nice, but they lack drama. the sun through the trees is nice. the flowers look more snapshot like. the sun is harsh, shadows distracting, and angle are too high on some.
like this is an ok shot, but its a snap shot. taken on the sunniest of all days, the rocks are washed out, the background is dull. i'd rather see some clouds, or a nice sunset, get the lighting in there on the mountain, a softer light.
the view is nice but the shadow is too much. as an HDR you could get the detail back. but there is too much sky in this
your bio could use more meat. no wait, your indian... more vegetable.
a nice portfolio of consistent work
a style that says - this is my work
a name for your store that is easy to find - no one will find High Street because its made up of two common words.
you need work that stands out
anyone can take these pictures. but what makes it special? mountains in midday - everyone has those. random ebay shots - those are everywhere. and overhead view of pie? not that appetizing. look at how they do it in magazines. they slice pie neatly placing it on a plate that might contrast better with the pie. if they use a white plate they may use a red table cloth. they have a nice setting with a simple arrangement, its lit well, the shot of the pie is usually complete by cutting off a piece and placing it on a fork ready to eat. or its just the slice of pie. or its the pie and some fruit to add color and interest.
usually its not just the object but all the supporting objects. this is what makes photography harder. and generally you won't just start selling things, you need to work at it. for now you should focus on one kind of photography and learn it and master it then move to the next.
black and white
then also - shoot your area. i never understood why people in colorful cities, shoot stuff from their closet. or random common locations. there has to be some interesting colorful images from new dehli right? street barbers, that thing where people throw colorful powder, pretty outfits, street markets, the architecture, the list goes on. shoot that stuff. the things that are near you. no one can travel right now, so it might be easier to shoot now.
What you chose to shoot is your choice. Anything can be interesting if presented in an interesting way. What kind of artist do you wish to be? This makes a difference in both subject matter and technique. Do you see your work adorning a coffee mug or a museum wall, perhaps both? In any case best of luck, I think you have some intriguing ideas and images.
