want to improve your photograph skills in the area of :?:
Oer. Looks as bad as an IQ test.
What do I do then?! Oops. Maybe that's a fail then.
Could you say a bit more about how adding to the poll will help improve skills?
Well, I personally have problems with all of the items. But picked fog, mist, & rain, because I have been on a few vacations where it has rained or been foggy most of the trip (both film & digital). Prints came out very poor, usually too dark. I know answers is likely bracketing and slowing down then shooting.
Also, My hope was to get a fell for what other member also have problems with and to have a little fun. So far the polling is trending toward Nighttime but all votes for Florida are not in yet.
I think working with models, portraiture is teritory that I havent really gone into before, so that would be a help for me, as well as the last 2 editing techniques.
Kara, Portraits terrify me so much, I avoided them. Working with people takes a whole set of skills I dont have.
Me either, thats why I need HELP!!!
I much perfer inanimate objects - they dont talk back :LOL:
Well, I picked darkroom editing because thats what I've been spending most of my time working on lately, and don't have that much expreience yet... but, in actuality I would like to improve in all of these areas!
I picked "working with models". I've been doing mostly portraiture in the last year. I understand the technical aspects fairly well, but I think the interaction between photographer and model may be the most important thing to get right. Sometimes I get absorbed with the photography and the equipment, and I worry that I'm not communicating enough.
I'll have shoots with some folks, and we all have a good time, and it's relaxed, and we get some really great shots. But sometimes I don't seem to be connecting with my subjects, and those pics aren't so good. If I can I like to meet with clients a time or two before the shoot. Sometimes that familiarity really helps them feel comfortable with me.
