Step 2: Analysis
Now let us take a moment to identify on how to improve this photo.
Exposure - Is a little bit underexposed on the subject's part. If I hadn't been too lazy, I could have snagged the shot. I was in a sort of dilemma at that time if I should bring my external flash. I opted for the beer instead (which is the right thing to do) so I can take pictures with a single hand.:)
Composition - Too centered for my taste and the guy on the left did not help with the overall balance.
Background - Very busy. I could have blurred the background with a shallower DoF but at that time it was blurred enough for me!hic....
The remaining enhancements will be for the next stage of this tutorial just so you'll come back for more.:)
Now let's roll out our sleeves and go to work!
