Suby In the House.

Love this shot, I was getting my gear ready for a walk about during my lunch break at work 2 fridays ago when a colleague of mine stuck his head in front of my lens, ofcourse I was going to snap him. Only shot I took and think it came out real good. Little bit of PS magic to bring the shot alive and presto :)

OK, Suby, I wanted to be first on this one. Absolutely wonderful! Great color. Great shot. The texture on the sweater ... you can almost feel it.

Amazing for a quick shot!
This is very nice, Suby. His sweater is ultra nice- this almost looks like an ad... for sweaters! Or something. But it looks that good.

I\'ll try and stop by more often. I feel bad that I\'ve been missing out.

Suby's in the hizzzouse! Great textures but I think his face is a bit underexposed or rather lighting could be better. For me anyhow. That said its probably better than most of the portrait shots I've done so good effort ;-)

This is a great "off the cuff" shot. This is the kind of stuff that makes a great photo. I am more impressed by these kinds of shots than by most studio and composed shots. When one comes out like this without really trying too hard to set it up and get everything perfect, it's like magic!

Ok, did that make any sense at all? I think I sounded like Paula Abdul on American Idol, lots of words but didn't say anything. Well, I know what I meant. LOL

For what it is, hmm... it's ok!

In true Reza style note the following smile

WIDL:

1.Too much background blur, I think you may have overdone it here suby.
2. Lighting, bores me, but then different strokes for different folks i guess.

Saturday's almost here, i'll be charging all my batteries tomorrow! lol smile
Suby & Sinem: The Skeelo, Thanks bro. The background was just too naff to keep in the shot. had to go smile
What!!!!! Lighting bores youuuuuuuu???? DARN, is there no pleasing this man??????

No now I have to go take some shots that will impress the Skeelo. noooooo, toOOO much pressure.
Hold on to your hat folks, Suby never chickened out from anything. Will take some shots during the honeymoon(I hope you guys did not think I would go without my mistress - Ms Canon 20D?) and hopefully will have something that will please the ever hard to please Skeelo.

Wow! That's a great portrait! The camera loves him!

I can't believe you all are getting married in just a couple of days! Is it going to be a big wedding?
Suby & Sinem: Thanks micki, was supposed to be a small wedding for very few close friends and family, maybe tops 100 guests at the church & reception. Yeah right!!!! as if. I had forgotten that me African & in Africa(albeit the wedding is in Milton Keynes), things don't exactly work that way.

Needless to say, of the lets say 90 invites sent out, less than 10 people have RSVPed. Seems we are now having in the region of 200+ guests and a Suby tearing his non existant hair out. Oh well, as long as Sinem gets her happy day, me cool smile

I wish I had taken it, but I can't help thinking you've over-cooked something to leave a slight halo, especially noticeable around his head. It gives a slight movement effect. Hm, maybe he moved!

Saw Mr Skee's wedding site (you directed another blogger there). You, sir, are gonna have some great wedding memories.

One thing I remember from my own wedding is that I was incidental to the proceedings. Your job is to make the bride look good! I think you have an easy job, my friend.

Have a great day.
