Hi there @jjhpops53, so, after watching that nice shot of the crane, and this other one, I have one simple yet powerful compositional advice for you mate. Whenever framing, mind the direction of the object/subject so you can achieve a sense of movement. We are getting in both shots a visual interruption from the frame being to close to the “front…[Read more]
Hi there @darthaddie, long time no see!
Since photography isn’t perceived as a material thing any more, clients tend to think that it’s the same to ask for 1 or for 200. It is not a perverse intention (I hope), it is just unawareness, which we as providers need to explain. Ergo, “client education” is a must for photographers nowadays. I think…[Read more]
Hi there Joe, and welcome to our place! I’m sure you’ll have a great time here with us, and you’ll definitely learn some valuable stuff about photography as well. If you wish to share an image with us, simply locate the image icon on top of the writing box. Here is a visual of it:
Photography-wise, I was a huge fan of the earlier Ted Forbes, back when he talked about history and aesthetics. Nowadays he is way too much into gear for my taste and interests, but his old videos are authentic jewels!
No photography related, well I just follow a lot of social sciences related channels :).
Oh jeez! I would love to have taken that shot myself! Wow! Thanks for sharing this beautiful photograph with us mate, there is virtually nothing to enhance here but the points that @jasenkalightstalking-com has pointed out for you. I would like to see it in a monochrome version though.
When it comes to products, lighting is everything. The good thing, is that you don’t need to have expensive or artificial light all the time. As Greg said, some EXIF (not the whole thing, Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO would be enough) would be helpful for a better feedback.
I took the liberty of downloading the photo for some…[Read more]
I really like what you captured here Lenny, it is a subtle yet insightful complaint about social stratification, which honestly applies to Latin America as a whole.
Now back to the image, I wouldn’t mind seeing less of that roof though, and perhaps you could pull some details from the mid-tones (precisely on the sand and the stonewall). Beyond…[Read more]
Hi there Collin, and welcome to our place! First of all, thanks for sharing your personal photos with us, that is something not so many people are willing to do. I’m sure you’ll get some really nice comments from our fellow Light Stalkers, but if you want structured critique, then you’ll have to take a spin over at the Feedback…[Read more]
Pretty much everything has already been said, I would only suggest you to keep a stricter eye when it comes to recovering tones because there is a huge halo around the subject that severely distracts the attention.
I get the idea mate, and is nice to experiment with quotidian objects. For me it could tell a bit more storytelling with more context (a wider shot), since it feels too cramped for my taste. I do like the light and the colours though!
Hi there @aurikami and welcome to our place, I’m sure you’ll have a nice time with us. I really like your first shot since it has a very smart composition, I also feel really pleasant what you did here of juxtaposing the organic shapes of the clouds with the rigid stiffness of the buildings on the left.
