    Put a smile on my face :)

    Lighting is great - red suits really pop.

    These two look like they're about to rob a bank!

    i like these! something abit Martin Parr about them
    one thing I would say if you were doing these for a paper you'd have to use flash to get rid of the shadows

    always, shadows across face are un-acceptable! obviously you can only do what you kit allows. So if you weere posing one of them up you'd have the sunlight behind them so there are no shadows and no squinting!

    Used to use fill-flash a lot shooting the brolly-ladies at motorpsorts events, for the same reason.

    You can just see my signature red shirt, and the flash popping, in the reflections in the shades :)
