Advice on portrait shoot

I have been asked to shoot an award presentation at work. The room that is generally used for these sorts of functions is mostly dark with light coming in through floor to ceiling windows on one side of the room. The overhead lights are not strong enough to sufficiently light up the subject.

This will be my first portrait shoot and am wondering how I should approach this and what additional equipment compatible with my Pentax I would need.

All advice greatly appreciated 🙂


Selective desaturation


I’m new at DPS and I basically just want to know what people think about this photo. It’s taken at Bausen, a very small town in Vall d’Aran (Spain).

I’ve applied a selective desaturation to the door.

I’ve never had any of my work critiqued so any type of critique is accepted and very much appreciated.

Need help on waterfalls

I went out today to practice on a local waterfall. I was following Scott Kelby’s advice on shooting with the aperture wide open since it was a cloudy day and shady area so that I could get that silky look. I know the composition is bad and it looks crooked, but I’m not worried about that, just want to know what I can do next time to get the rest in focus? Oh, and camera was on a tripod.
