Should I forget about photography&PS?

I'm really confused..
I'm relly interested in your opinion about my works..

This is kind of work which some girls want to get from photographers..But I don't like pictures of girls in different poses dressed in one clothes, with some typical accessory, against the background....

Experience of using PS is about 5 months..

By this time, I don't have any studio light equipment to play with it outside..
So I have to use it in workshop..:

Any opinions, critiques, advice could be helpful..

p.s. sorry for my english..

Re: Should I forget aboubvt photography&PS?

I like your work also, I think what ever your interest is you have times of doubt, just take a big breath and relax, take a look around at other peoples work and techniques, and you will be inspired to go on ( and i think you should)

Re: Should I forget about photography&PS?

I agree with the previous comments, interesting work so far, but to be brutally honest you need a bit more work in ps. Someone else said earlier to look around, get inspired... I don't think inspiration is your weakness, as the concept in your photos is great. I think your weakness lies in execution(post-shoot). 5 months is nothing in photoshop years, lol. But to answer the question posed in your subject line, definately keep working and pushing on! I'm excited to see what you come up with in the future.

PS PLEASE change the font your using, lol. One font site I occasionally go to is http://www.fontfreak.com/

Re: Should I forget about photography&PS?

I think your creativity is really showing but you need to settle down your compositions and backgrounds a lot (imo). There are too many crossing lines that confuse the eyes and lead them out of the frame. It really de-emphasizes your subject.

Start with your frame first. Photoshop is best used to augment a good photo, not rescue a lost one.

Keep practicing and DON'T quit.
