Thread: Happy family

  1. #1

    Default Happy family



    ISO 1600, 300mm, f 5.8, 1/350 sec

    1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
    - emotions are somewhat missing, how can i improve on it?
    - there's this "halo" thing, especially on the man's head. i don't think it's due to sharpening as it's still there when i tuned sharpen to 0. What is it?
    - is the cropping of the wife's legs a mistake?
    - anything else which you think can help me improve

    2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
    a nice family

    3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    dull weather, pretty far away

    4. Thread-starter's personal comments about the image.
    - colours were dull, maybe due to weather. i pumped vibrance up a bit in lightroom
    - picture rather soft, probably due to noise reduction in pp

    Thank you very much for looking!

    Looks a bit like posed picture, however there is some candid element in it.

    The presence of the toddler is actually does not contribute anything to the picture, nor as a family.
    I would say just the top portion of the couple would be good enough.
    The patch of blue in the back grd is distracting.

    Ooh, i thought handshake wouldn't be a problem since i was using 1/350 sec. Mm, why is it strange? to use iso1600 and f5.8?

    Hmm, looking at my original, it seems to me that it's due to handshake, cropping and noise reduction. Here is the original unprocessed similar shot:

    If you have got the leg, then I don't think there's any need to crop the leg...the baby is there to make up the family..if not, the title is called "Happy Couple"...

    With 1/350s shuttle speed, I think it is sufficient to minimize shake if you are careful...I think your lens is just soft at 300mm...like mine.....but tt's pretty normal...

    The "Halo" you mentioned on the head is due to noise...that's the region where shadow/something dark seeps in....noise smudge that region there....

    Anyway, I think your cropping wasn't as good as the original..

    Crop with this title in mind...

    " Learning how to shoot "

    But that means a lot of space wasted.
