what is the point of focusing someone backview when u can see the front. so i try to shift the view to the side.
nice photograph (: i think it's interesting the way you shot from the back to include both the subject and the reflection, but focussing on the reflection in the mirror! i shot a similar photograph of a little girl having her hair cut on CNY eve..
it's a photo that relates to the person being photographed as you can see the reflection (what the person sees when he has his haircut) and also relates to the third-person perspective..
it might be a little cramped visually, but then again reflective of the arrangement of quite a lot of the old-school barbers (: which i like!
the black and white can be improved upon though, i feel. have a better/smooth gradation between the darkest and lightest point.. makes it look more real and stunning/compelling..
good work (:
I have no idea where the point of focus is..
can maybe focus on the magazine he reading!! haha then become advertisement to promote the topic of what he reading..
personally I'd open the apature just a tad more or add half an EV. I know the focus isn't on the barber, but his reflection on the mirror is a little dark.
macson! i think you know me!
cos i know a macson (imd)
stop the time.
#1, the focus should be on the customer face but it is not sharp, and the shampoo bottle behind him is sharp.
#2, both faces are underexposed.
#3, improve the contrast of this photo, the white point should be the on the highlight of the customer's shirt.
#3, you can crop away the right side, till the ear of the barber.
keep the comments related to the picture and do keep personal chit chats to pm, thanks
The correct term is salon not saloon.
