thats great indian wedding photographer light set up- equal light on both side - thats an easy photograph.

i liked the light set up good work dude- you've managed to get some drama in the light in my humble opinion which is what i find missing in a lot of portraits. photos look good in black and white.

in terms of what could be better - details in the white have been blown out in some places. In pic one there is a shadow line across her throat - this could have been avoided like you've done in pic 2 where the shadow is not in the form of a line. In pic 1 some space in front of the subject would have improved the photo composition.

Thanks Ayaz..  Yup the shadow line is not there in second coz there was a tube light complementing the flash

Both come across as very strong personalities. BW suits perfectly fine. Good work, Aditya.

Hi AA,

The granny shot is really well done, the pose is perfect and she engages the viewer, lit well too.
The mom shot is lacking that pose and intimacy with the camera, light wise (I am not sure about this) shouldn't the side closest to the camera be well lit instead of the opposite?

I would like to see a coloured version of the granny pic (if you have processed it) 

Cheers :)

Hi Aditya,

The pics are quite great because of the posture, expression, framing, texture etc.
The only thing which bothers me (its my opinion and may be wrong as others have not quoted this) is a bit too much light on the subject.
