Thread: Browhaus lands at Ion

  1. #1

    Default Browhaus lands at Ion

    1. In what area is critique to be sought?
    - Composition and color tone

    2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    - Trying to get the 'people behind the newspapers' kind of impression (I think fail leh)

    3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    - I took this photo while accompanying a friend at work, from a level above the 'models'. Used a 5D Mark II with the 24-105mm f/4.0L

    4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    - I find it lacking 'color' and maybe I should have gone down to the same level and gotten a better perspective.

    Picture was cropped slightly and the levels were adjusted to brighten up the image.

    C&C welcomed.

    Thanks in advance!

    i think if you had taken on the same level as them it will take a great candid street shot.

    one comment about your photo is you are taking against a brightly lit background hence your subjects are all underexposed.

    Shoot at same level is correct, since there are 6 people holding up the tabloids, it would be an oblique angle, something like 30 degrees from the very first guy, landscape format wise composition, and a very long lens ( something like 300 mm ) to compress all the 6 papers headings together, an aperture of 8 ~ 11 to get enough depth of field, however have to compromise with slowest shutter speed in view of camera shake with such long lenses, with existing ( available ) light exposure.

    All in all, it needs quick reflexes, combining the right hardware application.

    Perhaps by the time you walk down one level, ( several seconds goneby ) all things have changed.
