Default Senior Drummer shoot

Hello! I'm fairly new when it comes to posting images. These are a few pictures I took from a senoir shoot back in Nov. and just thought I'd share.
This senior is a self-taught drummer;It is always such a delight to photograph individuals with such beautiful personalities! I still think that I'm having problems with staying consistant with the colors, particularly in the skin tones. c&c is most welcome!

Very nice series, I like your choice of posing and putting the drum set in the middle of the road was a great idea. On my monitor the white shirt appears to be a bit too hot. In the last two images I would like to see a little more light in those beautiful eyes, maybe a reflector or some fill flash.

Thanks for sharing.

A nice series. I like the 3rd with the drum in the background and also the last shot. Well done.

I love the series though I think in the second shot focus on the drum stick tips stopping the action with a bit of blur of the hands might have made a more powerful shot for me at least.

Very well done! I like your creativity! I agree about a little bit more light in the eyes in the last 2 - you could do that in post, easily. But the exposures are very good on those.

Overall nice series. I like the ideas with the drums, however IMHO it could be a bit edgier and more creative with the framing. Not sure how to express what I mean but the "IT-Factor" is missing to make them great. Only talking about the ones with the drums. Maybe a different processing would help.
