I live in a place where Satan would ask for an air conditioner. Between May and October, I become very nocturnal. I prefer to venture out in the middle of the night when it cools off to about 80 degrees or so. I went to college for photography back in the early 90's and learned during the film age. After college, I detoured into the dot com technology explosion, and put the camera down. (bad move, on my part) I just picked it back up almost one year ago and am trying to redevelop my eye, refresh the technical foundation I learned in college, and figure out what direction I want to take this passion that never went away. I would love comments/input of any and all nature. At the bottom of the photos, I've included some questions you can use as a guide, if you feel inclined to comment.... Many times when I'm considering an image for the purpose of a critique, I'm at a loss for how to conduct the evaluation. Thanks for viewing! -------------------------------------------------------------- #1: San Jacinto Street I actually was shooting a Baptist church across the street from this parking garage, but the security guard wasn't too happy with that idea. So I swung the camera around, adjusted the tripod angle, and went with this shot instead. #2: Modern Advertising This was hanging from the side of a business building (about 10 stories tall). #3: World Aquarium & The West End #4: Methodist Church Questions to Consider: A) What does your eye see first? What do you think was the intended 'subject' in the image? B) Is the use of color appropriate? Does the use of color enhance the image, or would it have been better to use B&W, selective color, or alternative processing methods (infrared, etc...)? C) Is the photo properly exposed? Are the shadows, highlights and midtones properly exposed? D) Is the image in focus? Is depth of field appropriate? Are there distracting objects in the image that would have been better if a shallower depth of field were used? E) Overall, what could use improvement? What do you think was done well in the image?
