I like 1, 4, and 5. Exposure seems good in all of them which can be tricky when snow is part of the equation. They all seem very sharp though! Number 12 doesn't do much for me, not sure what you were getting at with it.
Nice series. I like the angle on 5 and 11, you feel like your there. One thought on 5 would be to put the focus on the closer skier, but maybe this is how you wanted it. Like I said, nice series!
Well, you went skiing or snowboarding, that must have been neat. However none of your photos were appealing to me. You look like you documented your journey, which is great for memories. But none of them seemed to have any thought out composition.
shooting while riding is really tricky. Photowise its really hit or miss with the exposure of the snow vs shadows from trees vs where the subject is. Also shooting in gloves and through goggles is tough.
Back in Highschool, I remember a banner that hung in my Calculus teacher's room... It read: "Excuses are the nails to build a house of failure."
I feel like this applies to your last post. All I was saying is that they were good documentation photos. Maybe next time, you can pause for a minute and take your gloves off?
I cant agree more about the first part. I take 2 types of pictures. The first kind is when i set everything up. In these shots I do everything i can to get it the way i want it. The other type is when im just messing around becuase id rather be appreciating what im doing and whats happening around me rather then fussing with pictures. These were obviously snap shots from a great time that I though some might enjoy. If you want to check out my other recent thread "Finnally a nice day" and look at the work i do when i want to make sure everything is correct.
Cool snapshots, then. Looks like you had fun
How would you change the composition for #1 & #9?
