  1. OK you have moved. I checked out some of your work. Back to the Lost Boys. I really like your Soundslides. The audio is really good and you captured some wonderful moments with these young men. In general the pictures are light and bright in their content. I did notice a couple of shots had a slight focus problem and again as I mentioned to you earlier no detail shots. Try to include seeing details in your daily work. I love the wide view but when story telling in a slide show or a page layout project you need details to help reveal the essence of what it is you are reporting about.
    Look at hands, eyes the texture of their skin! Details bring us intimately close. You want the viewer to make a connection so include tight details in your work. Beyond that, nice work keep it up.
