    Ahhh memmory lane. I like your shots, but in the first three the women look a little too gold.

    I love the shots. How are you getting that look? If filters, which ones?

    What are your settings you use to capture the motion blur?

    ooo, some tough customers here :lol:
    but thanks for the warm welcome :no smile:

    it's a small club, low ceiling and a lot of lights so I'm shooting at iso 800, f5, 1/5s(except for the dj which was 1/3s). no special filters except for UV. tanning makes some people turn orange and some golden.

    Get used to the mediocre personal opinions everyone has on here. Your pictures are sweet.

    So to make it clear...you just used the club lights. Do you have any pictures with flash. I'd be curious to see a strobe bounced off that low ceiling.

    hmmmmm.... you're saying we all have average opinions? That makes no sense.
    So your opinions are the only ones with merit?

    I'd love to know what you did in post-processing to get that effect

    hai, I do like your shots. Not sure about the artistic side you are mentionning, but I definatly get a feel for the images and the people in them.

    The goldish colour of the people could be a mix of so many things, skin colour and yellowish lights. But they do look more than just tanned.

    I think #1 and #3 are my fave of the set. I like how they are framed. I like the tilt in #1 and I really like the body lines and angles (mainly the arm up top) in #3.

    #2 is not bad, but I feel it should of been shot a bit wider as her head is close to the side of the frame making it feel tight for me. Just my opinion, might of been what you were going for.

    In #4, I love the movement of the hair, but I really really do not like the armpit. Its the first thing I saw and its what catches my eye.

    The DJ shot is cool. As well as the last two shots are, but I find them with less emotion or drama as you have in the first few images. While they are well shot, I don't get the funky vibe I got in the first few.

    Can't wait to see more of your work.
