“I’m camera shy” OK I said it, now the story !
I promised Brian that I will participate in the “Shoot yourself” project and a promise is a promise !
So tonight I have waited for all the house to sleep, completely ignored the millions on the internet I’m exposing myself to, took the camera and shot myself !
Canon EOS 30D with Tokina 12-24 at 12mm f/4, 1/250s with one external flash
I took about 25 pics and this is the one I have selected for the project
I’ve not been very active on this section of ADIDAP lately but I guess it is a good section and one of my new year’s resolutions is that I will post a Photographer of the Week every Friday. So if you have some names you want to nominate as POTW do contact me !
Now for this week I’ve picked up a great photographer and a net friend Doug Barber !
Doug is a versatile photographer he shoots landscapes, still life but what really amazes me is the way he understands people ! He can turn almost any “normal” setup into an eye catching portrait image !
Not only this Doug is also great with light painting technique
Honestly I do ! Do you ?
I am a big fan of minimalist compositions ! I like the simplicity it just relaxes my eyes but what are the “must have” ingredients of minimalism ?
THE MAIN SUBJECT
In a minimalist composition the main subject, or focal point, of the picture usually takes just a little portion of the frame answering the rule of third with a lot of open or empty space around .
This will give the eye room to relax , wander freely around the frame and then “rest” on the focal point. Make sure to remove all unneeded objects and clutters from your shot.
I love those grainy, gritty, dirty, fuzzy, noisy photos — you know the kind. Technically they may have their flaws, but artistically they’re inspirational. To me, grain or noise can add a lot of impact to a photo and change the mood quite rapidly.
