Suby In the House..

Update: 00:48hrs Okay because the Subster is always prepared, I have a bigger version of this shot already uploaded and here it is by popular demand.

The 1st post can be seen here - http://suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/4178.htm

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".

Suby & Sinem: Nope this is the original shot, I stretched the other shot into the landscape format smile I just had this one uploaded unto Shutterchance just in case I got comments like I did, My moto is ALWAYS BE PREPARED smile

Suby

This is fantastic Suby. I actually like the stretchy version best, but the photo itself is excellent. I've started thinking about the final product as I'm shooting, and I find that it helps me shoot more creatively. It helps that I'm getting a bit better at Photoshop (though I'll never master it the way you have).

I'm back in town and settled in, so I'm going to have a look at the photos of yours that I missed. Cheers!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Timmy, I am glad to hear that you have started thinking that way (you where doing that before but now I guess you are now more thoughtful of the finished product). It really is nice to read some misguided people think I have mastered photoshop. smile All I waill say is I am just like everyone out there, trying my hardest to be the best and I am still ALWAYS & CONSTANTLY learning. You should see how many boks I have open in front of me when I have an idea in my head smile

Well, I don't really like seeing the horizon dividing the frame in half here, but apart from that it's a nice shot. There's also the issue about your unusual camera settings, but that's already been talked about in that other shot of yours.
Suby & Sinem: Veloran my bro, the shot was very intentionally taken the way it was. Apart from the high ISO which was a mistake on my part. Thanks for the comments bro. You will see more expiremtalish images from me over the next few weeks dotted here and ther. Hope you likey smile
Suby
Very interesting! I like the grain and b&w.

Regards,
Jason

I am feeling this very much, love the use of grain, I have to say I do prefer the panoramic prev version. I has more impact for me
Suby & Sinem: I actually prefer the panoramic view, but for once I decided to listen to what some of the guys wrote and post up what they wanted smile See I do lsten (sometimes) smile

I wish i had a bigger screen to this photo on.....because there is a lot to see on it!!
I like this one very much!
You made it look very peaceful and calming.
Would be very effective in a dentists waitingroom. (one horse even went down to rest with all his gear on.....lol That is special)
Suby & Sinem: Awww thanks Petra, Now you mention it my sister has got a dental clinic and have been trying to figure out which images of mine I am going to force her to post up smile Well I think this will be the 1st one smile

WOW, Suby!! That is an awesome work of art you've created!! You certainly achieved the goals you had in mind when you saw this scene, definitely one of your best, if not THE best, since I've been visiting here!! You could probably make a nice bit of cash selling this print over and over again.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Micki, nice bit of cash, dar I soo need that now. Selling shot here I come smile

This is wonderful. It looks like some of the paintings and old photos I saw when I traveled around the American West many years ago. Except the saddles are different...LOL

I agree you copuld probably make some money from this shot.
Suby & Sinem: Already thinking of how much money I can make smile Suby
Wonderful, I like this much better. The horses look more like horses by comparison to the other shot. maybe it wasn't the grain that bothered me but the distortion
Suby & Sinem: Thanks MAtt.
Greatings to you. Can you help me to find any more info?

I totally agree about the people watching thingy: One of my all-time favorite activities smile. Suby, I absolutely love this shot! It really very much shows that you had a vision of what you wanted to achieve. In my eyes, knowing what your result should look like makes a great photographer. Congrats on this work!
Suby & Sinem: Awww thanks Ella, I am being referred to as a photographer, Hugh sig, I wish, Me still have a long way to go but me accept it with all graciousness and gratitude. I really am glad that my vision was indeed interpreted correctly not only by the capture, but with the editing done smile Thanks girl.
