Suby In the House..

Okay me back. Jide put up a film look shot a few days ago 08-June06 http://alakija.shutterchance.com/photoblog/4065.htm I did say I had an image similar to this style that I was going to post up. Well here it is.

An insight into the Mind of Suby

I wanted to go for the old school weathered and beaten film look. You know the kinda of look you see in old B&W cowboy films.

When I saw this scene, even before I started shooting frames, I knew what type of finished product I wanted. I studied the angles, the scenery, the lighting. Thought of the composition, thought of my camera settings (although I missed the fact my ISO was at 800), what lens was suitable for what I wanted to capture? Thought of how I would convert to monochrome and whatever else PPing I would do to this shot. This was all done in about 3 minutes and while Sinem was getting ready for a horse ride (Suby and horses do not go together :) ).

Then I started snapping. I think I took about 10 snaps of the scene of which I really love 5.

As Skee says"Knowing your camera, inside out, means that, their are no technical contraints, giving total room for creativity"

One of my hobbies I have had since I was old enough to think is what I call "People  Watching". I love sitting down and just watching people. I think this has fueled my love for Portraits but it has also helped me in being able to SEE the beauty in almost anything. Seeing this beauty and presenting to your fellow humans are 2 different things.

The art of photography to me is the art of learning how to cross that bridge. To be able to present what our eyes or minds "see".

An interesting shot Suby.
Though don't know if I like the end result. But I do like how you have conveyed the open expanse of land and sky.
And it may be one of those shots that grows on you.
Suby & Sinem: Posted a new version of this shot. Give it a look. smile

I think this would look real good if it was bigger. Right now the contrast and grain and size are all conspiring to make it very hard for me to make out exactly what the sheep are doing (or are they horses?) smile
Suby & Sinem: Okay since you want bigger and the Subster suspected this may be the case with you fiddly prosumers out there. I had a backup image ready just in case. I have reposted it as todays shot. Let me know what you think smile

Almost looks like it might be some sort of old time horse auction what the amount of horses. Seems almost too grainy to me maybe if it was bigger like Steve said
Suby & Sinem: I like the grain, and I have posted a bigger image. Let me know what you think
