both look fucking brilliant
[QUOTE=Sjokolade;34226654]Some nice photos and some nice critics on this page. I went photographing this evening at a local beach with some friends, and after a two-minute exposure i ended up with this. I kinda liked it, but what do you think? [img]http://www.sundephoto.net/facepunch/HFS_5124.jpg[/img] [/QUOTE] The coloured one ^ |
[QUOTE=Sjokolade;34226654] [img]http://www.sundephoto.net/facepunch/HFS_5124.jpg[/img] [/QUOTE] I much prefer the coloured version. I also really like how the metal in the top left mirrors the sky on the right. Very similar in shade and colour. Deceptive (which is always nice to have a photograph trick you), which it lacks in the monotone version.

Like the colored much better.
I've edited some more now [IMG]http://www.sundephoto.net/facepunch/HFS_5129.jpg[/IMG] The thing about dusk photography is that the light changes so fast. If your exposures are several minutes long, you'll only get one shot before the light is once again changed

Self Portraits. Meh.

Love the colors and light (off camera?) in the first one. However, not feeling the selective and the time stamp on the second. [editline]January 15th 2012[/editline] This is a left over from an attempt at something more conceptual that ended up not coming out right. I coaxed some interesting radial out of the 35 (almost MF/Brenizer feel), but besides that this is just same old shit. -snipped the picture, i hate it- I've got 3 ~shoots~ lined up within the next 4 weeks, hopefully that will break me out of this idle. [editline]January 15th 2012[/editline] My exchange kid is hilarious. [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7021/6703658955_f01967ddac_z.jpg[/img]
Bopie, am I to expect anything beside self portraits?
Self p's just make an easy way to practice for what I want to get into. Work out kinks on my own, have better handle on things when actually shooting (which is a rare opprotunity in these parts). Don't think I'm not as tired as anyone else of seeing my self over and over, haha.

Thanks for the suggestion, though he's lost interest in it. I've tried it a few times but we both agree it just isn't there anymore. He's a lot more busy now that he's in highschool too. Like I said, I've managed to snag a few girls in the coming weeks. In the meantime I'm focused on developing my technique. I'll probably dial back how much of that junk (like the above) gets posted as it usually doesn't get much feedback other than 'do something else' - which is completely understandable, I'm not trying to argue or anything. Everything aside, I'll make a note to try to branch out and shoot some other genres. Oooh and this thread has been on fire with the quality of crits lately.

[QUOTE=Massive Duece;34230522][/QUOTE] I think you should consider posting fewer images in your next post. It is hard do give critics to this many pictures at the same time. Being selective, and only posting the best photographs will also make you look like a better photographer. Some of these photographs are actually quite good, so keep it up :)
as far as shooting the subjects you did, i think you absolutely nailed it. most pictures i see of exhibited items don't look nice, but you captured some really nice angles with a lot of detail
[QUOTE=Trogdon;34230902]as far as shooting the subjects you did, i think you absolutely nailed it. most pictures i see of exhibited items don't look nice, but you captured some really nice angles with a lot of detail[/QUOTE] Thanks, there was a lot I didn't get to take pictures of that I would of liked though.
I don't see anything wrong with self portraits. Coming from me (and it's practically all i do), bopie's self portraits feature a lot more variety in them than mine ever do/have.

I love that detail too. That's the shot that stuck out the most to me.
also you don't need a timestamp to show its a 365. I think it takes away from the photo itself.
