it actually goes around in circles
the focus,clarity etc is secondary compared to composition and story.
this very photo of the beloved Venerable burning himself says it all. i cant say that the photo is perfect technically. but it says a lot.
Flu meds have a great way of forcing you to zoom in - quickly.
TS, what is it about the photos you posted up, in terms of TECHNICAL merit, and ARTISTIC merit, you feel should be credited, and addressed? Imagine you're the lecturer critiquing a student's work.
Also, have a look at the works of the macro/nature masters, both here and on the dedicated nature lovers' forums. Also look at the works of fine arts flora and nature photographers that are enjoying some scale of commercial success via gallery sales.
Where would your shots fit in and how would they rank?
On a lighter note, be glad you're not under some masters or places like Brooks, where your assignment which took weeks or months of blood, sweat and tears to produce, might just be torn up in front of your face in seconds with not a single word of ... anything. Right or wrong way to teach, it happens.
Actually there are a lot of "Good photos can be bad photos" in CS.
oh i see...
i took alot a few days ago... the model is a 6 year old cute girl....
she was so shy at first, but when i ask her to turn her face for my to take a pci, she post continuously non stop ... and i think i took abt 10 pics...
it makes me smile whenever i look at them...
the only regret is that i use kit lens, not the 50mm... so there is no bokeh...
is international pervert crowd.. the comments are far more scary.
you can pm me if you are very bored, i can send you links to see. i drop by every now and then to amuse myself.
I always ask myself a few basic questions before I take a shot/include it in my portfolio.
I find that questioning your own work allows you to understand it better and it helps to ensure your photo isn't just 'another snapshot'.
1) What is this photo about?
If you can't answer it right off your head when you look at your picture, then I think you've failed. Your photo concept isn't clear enough.
2) What do I like about this photo?
3) What makes this photo different from others I've seen?
4) Would other people be interested to see this photo?
5) Is this the best I can do for this shot?
I find myself improving when I ask these very simple questions.
