Hey guys

I was out fishing with my friend Sigurd the other day and the light was absolutely beautiful.

Feel free to give some comments and critique.

I like the texture in this picture. Although it could have been exposed a little more you might have lost the texture. He also could have posed for the shot. Very candid and some background and or fishing props would have been nice.

Do you have more pictures to show the story (fishing trip) of the scene?

Thanks, I can agree that it might be a bit "empty" in that sense.

I don't have more pictures but I have a video that I shot on my Canon 7D:

Nice photo, it almost seems like an HDR. I like the video too, the music and direction is great. Some of the focus is out. What is the focus like when using video on SLRs?

Thanks:)

I kinda like out of focus shots though :p
I could have just cut it out, but I kept it because I like it


Anyway, pulling focus with slr's isn't too hard. Like everything it just takes time to get used to it.
 
He's got a sharpening glow around him. I dont know what this is called, but I do know that it is from over sharpening. It is also quite a bit underexposed. Other than that, its nice.

True, I could remove it, I just didn't pay attention to it.

But underexposed?
I wanted it to be going from dark to brighter in his face. It might be my monitor that is badly callibrated though.
But it's perfect here at least.
 
His face looks backlighted and slightly underexposed on my monitor,and the halo around his head is noticeable...it looks kind of bad,actually, like an HDR gone slightly awry. The images from the video on the other hand, look quite nice. I watched the video,and despite the focus going in and out, I thought the music was simply stunning, and echoed perfectly the setting-out of the traps or pots. I wondered though as I watched it, what the target species was? Were those crab pots? Crawfish pots? Codfish? It looked like saltwater, like a Fijord (sp?)or saltwater sound or bay to me,and the size and style of the traps looked,well, foreign to me, and I wondered what they heck he was trying to catch! His wry grin midway through was nice! He looks like a great fisherman type. I've known many fishermen, and they often have a "look" about them.
