Marine Corps Birthday/Veteran's day

With the birthday and vet's day approaching, I'm trying to brainstorm some fun little projects. As a grown man, I'm actually petitioning the wife for some action figures.. I don't know whether to put an LOL smiley there or a crying one...

I'll probably post a few more photos from the Marine Corps Birthday Ball next weekend in this thread, or anything else I think of. Semper Fidelis to all who've served.

Re: Marine Corps Birthday/Veteran's day

I love a good tight crop like this. It really tells a story. On this one ... I think there may be some issues with your perspective, and depth of field. Also, I would either crop the button in or out. Cutting it off is a composition no-no. I personally think the button would add to the overall image.

Re: Marine Corps Birthday/Veteran's day

Thanks for your service and everyone else past and present that has been in the forces.

Were not gonna be able to make it to the ball this year, have no one to watch the little ones. We had a real good time last year though but I will be living vicariously through the images you post this time around.

Re: Marine Corps Birthday/Veteran's day

which button? top left corner or bottom center in focus? The DOF definitely trails on the left side. It doesn't really bother me enough to make me want to reshoot it though.

Sad that I can be that lazy, right? Thanks for the comments and critique. I'll definitely keep that in mind in the future.

Re: Marine Corps Birthday/Veteran's day

I'm talking about the button just below the ribbons. I am with you on the lazy factor. I guess it's just because this is something I am doing for my own enjoyment. I suppose if I were doing this as a source of income, I might be a bit more motivated

In the next year or so, I plan to begin investing in some studio lighting. This type of shot would be really fun to experiment with in the studio. But I am planning on doing some product work.
