@fredf Don’t be sorry for your opinions. That’s what the Shark Tank is all about. I know that this photo is not a portfolio builder. That’s why I posted it. There were several good suggestions from several people here. I hope I can utilize some of them when there are only a few seconds to compose this type of shot in the future. However, I…[Read more]
this was what was available to me .. i tried to get the background dark but could not justify i guess.. and about exposure i don’t know i still would like to keep it low .. i am not liking high exposure over here..
@pmarione @fredf .. feel free to complety redo .. i would love to see your effort on this :’)
Hey @fredf . I generally like the shot and have no problem with the content. But i dont like the cropping too much. It feels cramped up. Especially because her face is clearly turned to her left but you have the same amount of space between her head and the frame on both sides.
I would have maybe proposed to get the whole arrow in the picture…[Read more]

@dobara: sure I will frame the subject from those distracting lighting.
@fredf: I also thought of making the portrait temperature cool by adding blue and I will not repeat this mistake next time. I just now noticed that the hair is a way blended to the background and thanks for the rim light idea 🙂
Thanks for your encouragement, @fredf! I took many images first time at this lovely park. This was the very last spot I stumbled upon as my daughter and I were exiting towards the car. It was that moment when you feel tired and fulfilled yet something catches your eye and you shout…”Wait…look at the light over there!!” I was glad for the “one m…[Read more]
Thank you for the compliment, @fredf. I scouted the location out a week before, and knew we had lots of great spots for variety. Once there with the family, it was all kind of spontaneous. e.g…Why don’t you all try to look at me from through the tree, or sit on the grass over here, climb the rock, sit on the bench, walk towards me holding hands, e…[Read more]
I do all of the editing on the largest version of the file i can create. For me that means edit the RAW file for color balance, spots, and other simple things, convert to TIF, do all of the noise removal (Nik has a new Raw pres-harpener that may change this step), contrast enhancing, color, sharpening,…[Read more]
@fredf, I see your point, but please understand that I’m not in love with vignettes either. My other responses should clarify my rationale for using it in white in this particular instance. However, since I don’t have much experience using them, I’ll go back to try again. Perhaps I can find an acceptable image in there w/o the vig. Thanks for your…[Read more]
PHOTO OF THE WEEK 30 Oct 2013This week’s “Photo of the week” is another stunner from Fred Furze AKA @fredf, titled “Bedouin Fighter”.
There is some serious conviction portrayed in this solid shot. Another fine image from a fine photog!
Love your work Fred, thanks for sharing with us and keep em comin!

@drus – that’s an interesting perspective you have. I agree with you and especially about the shutter speed-f stop choice I made. I think I was not thinking much about that and was focusing on the composition (I know that sounds lame) – I was carrying a new camera and wasn’t yet comfortable with its controls.
Thanks all for the feedback, much appreciated – it has helped me a lot 🙂
@nikon-nut The underexposed wall is due to it being a really sunny day which created harsh shadows, could be edited though. I think it’s just over editing by me I’m afraid – I wanted to create an effect similar to using an ND filter but it was a quick job and obviously…[Read more]
