Oooo…while those questions are good (and BTW, I love manual focus when I need to get a little bit closer than auto focus can manage on its own, there is always a little more in your camera in macro than autofocus can manage) the moody dungeon-like feel is what makes this photograph terrific. Now see, @tomdinning you can produce “feeling.”…[Read more]
As your self portrait is ‘interpretive’ (I believe that all photographs and communications are interpretive as there is always the photographer and the viewer (as you pointed out), the author and the reader) are you open to a reading?
As I said I sometimes have trouble trusting my reading of my own work so I’m open to…[Read more]
Nice web @tomdinning
@karamen: While you figure out the focus locking, you may want to try back button focus too, if it is not the same thing. It takes some getting used to, but I haven’t found a reason to go back to shutter button focusing since I swithced it over. I don’t think I ever will. I find it easier this way. Now my shutter button is…[Read more]
Morning Tom, (here anyway) @tomdinning,
I don’t believe there is an achievable, or even theoretical, perfection.
I’m not blowing smoke to tickle your ego if I say that your surfer photo communicates the sense of what it’s like to commune with the sea.
I expect that you should be able to communicate in a language (visio-photographic) that…[Read more]
@tomdinning I’m no believer in paper qualifications as an arbiter of artistic authority but it can be useful to know if someone has been a lifelong student of their craft, has spent time working as a professional in the field and has experience as an educator.
I’m describing you!
As well as myself.
So what’s up with saying you ‘have no…[Read more]
Hi @tomdinning , the ‘I’ stuff was an attempt to avoid invoking your ire by telling you what you ought to do but rather only saying what I might to if I were approaching the image.
I just try to let my honest opinions flow, with a normal level of not trying to annoy people.
Your question was specifically about the elements of composition…[Read more]
I love my cats and will deal with the damages they do to my home. Hehe!
I have already had a couple comments referring to “unwanted objects” in the frame of my photos. I just take them with a grain of salt. The objects don’t bother me. I understand that…[Read more]
“You see, telling me what you would have done is of no use to me at all. That’s not why I take photos. You can have your own personal opinion on any of my stuff and that is of no consequence to me either.”
Perfect. I am someone that says what’s on my mind and you seem to be the same kind of person. I can handle that just fine.…[Read more]
@tomdinning without any intention of turning this into something it’s not! I couldn’t agree more. I firmly believe if more people were diplomatic but said it how it is we would all get along just fine.
Composition to me depends on how I feel at the time, subject, situation and loads of other things that are many and varied. I don’t break rules…[Read more]
@tomdinning I had to read most of this thread again to figure out what you were talking about lol I’ve driven a little over 600 miles since I put that post up this morning so I’m not thinking too clearly :o) Are the three dots a cat? It’s hard to see detail in these itty bitty images…
I’ve taken two classes in DSLR video production and…[Read more]
