Should this be in the critique forum? What specifically do you want critiqued?
At first I saw this photo and thought 'Oh no, not another one of these.'
You seem to have a recurring style... that I personally am not a huge fan of. But then I saw the book, and I think it really makes this shot. I like your idea, but the style of this shot (blurred, creepy figures on a dark background) really annoys me.
Right on and thank you for the great compliment! It really annoys you
I think thats fantastic. :thumbup:
It's just my opinion, there's no need for sarcasm. Plus, you posted it in the critique forum to begin with, so you need to be open to criticism.
I am thats why I thanked you for the compliment.
I do enjoy your style, but one thing I think would help alot of these, and this is just my opinion, is having a little bit of base exposure. I know you are going for the black background, with body parts popping out here and there, but for me, a bit of exposure to the entire scene, and I'm not talking much, would set it off, while still retaining the eerie dark feeling.
Matt I know exactly what you are saying. One of these days I want to get one of those portable studio things. With an actual black background.
In these pictures.. I have a window to the left covered by a green curttain, A green wall with an offwhite ceiling and an unfolded maroon futon to stand on. These are all long 10 plus exposures up to 25 for this one so i can use iso 100 and I have to adjust it accordingly to make up for the light coloered walls. I take them in B&W then adjust them later so the background doesnt come through. I dont have photoshop available right now as Im not at home. all I use is Irfanview.
An annoyance that you have to try and explain your photographs … they don’t speak for themselves and often do nothing for me
Looks like it belongs on a emo/hardcore album cover... something like "Senses Fail" or "From Autumn To Ashes"
Doesn't really pull at my heart strings but I'm sure there is a whole following that would love it... It does have a genre and place to belong.
I want to see all of the book
I could care less what you
I like that you find it an annoyance. Thanks for the compliment. :thumbup:
