Thread: Lines of disco light

  1. #1

    Default Lines of disco light



    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    Lighting and composition. Area of choice, in enclosed balcony.
    Area of focus in this sort of photograhpy

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    Streaks of light to create a feel of disco / party ambience.



    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    Complete darkness.

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    I think the refelections from the right on the right wall is asymmetrical, as in it only shows on the right but not the left. Sadly on the left is my window.

    Side note:
    I want to start experimenting with lights,dark low key images.
    Other areas of interest is street photography but haven't get to that yet.

    It would help if you straightened the shot. The tilt is distracting.

    Personally, I think the tilt works for me; it adds interest to the shot. I like the way the light reflects off the walls too. Great attempt!
    There are a few distracting elements in the shot, like the chair (?) and the yellow umbrella in the corner at the back. I think it'll help if you wore darker coloured clothes so you wouldn't show up in the shot too much.
    Just out of interest: did you press the shutter from the camera and moved over to the end of the corridor during the exposure? Trying to trace your light trail

    Yes the tilt was on purpose when the damn tripod was giving me problems.
    I had to improvise.

    Freebie tripod, my camera almost fell..

    I LOVE the tilt. It really adds a sense of movement that makes sense, since this is to convey disco. There are so many 'fake tilt shots', especially of food, that have left me feeling disoriented and like the photographer is just tilting for the sake of it.

    Here it really makes sense. The only thing, as others have mentioned, is the background. Make it look more like a club, and this will be mesmerising.
