Shots from 2 weeks ago. Mamiya c330. Fuji Reala 100 120 color film










Who should I critique??? Maybe Vicskimmr shot since I like it. However, the glare from the sun is just a bit too much. High lights are blown out without any details. Maybe crop out the glare and the sun??? Or should have taken 2 or more exposures. One for the sky and the other for the ground. Then, you merged both shots together.

Cool

Three Great photos Tetra. The 1st one looks slightly over exposed IMO.



Here is a pic of the eclipse that happened yesterday, the moon going in front of the sun. Pic hasn't been edited.

This thread seems to have died!

The picture seems to be a bit..boring. If it was mayble a closer crop, it might be more appealing to me.

Here's my Nelly today, up in the mountains.

Is it Nikon 50/1.8?
Sometime I like it better than 50mm/1.4.Crystal sharp.

Plamski...

The first shot doesn't really peak my interest. I like his silhouette against the big screen though... composition feels off. I really like the 2nd shot though. That really caught my interest. I like the lighting on him a lot. Did you blur out the bottom of his "stage" he was up on? That drew in my eye for some reason



So I got bored tonight and decided to do a new self-portrait for facebook/linkedin/my photography website. Using 1 light with an umbrella and a fill card on the left side of my face. Minor retouching to eyes and face (maybe 10 minutes tops spent retouching).

I blur it a little bit because there are too many metal rails under. Probably not the best post processing but we are learning.

Portraits are very hard objects for me and I have to read a lot of books to understand basics but isn't a light too much?

Not bad at all! My only critique is the lower left corner is a little dark as a result of only using 1 light....use two!


...I'll continue on with the self portrait theme

This, I know, but am limited on space in my house and didn't feel like busting out a 2nd light. Plus, since the 2nd light would be a fill anyway, I'd still probably get the gradient going against the wall anyway unless I came 6-10' away and used 2 lights to light the wall evenly...

Also, neat looking self portrait!
