Quick Snap

Suby In the House.

Shot last week. I was siting down taking a break from my street shoot when this couple walked by me. I held the camera on my lap and snapped this. Surprised how this came out.

Okay I have to apologise for not putting up more imaginative shots. Think it's going to be that way for a few days. Life all of a sudden is soo busy, and apologies if I do not comment on your blog, not to worry, I will be back to terrorize (sorry educate) ALL

Not bad for a lap shot I guess. I do enjoy taking photos of strangers without their knowledge. I'm not sure why you posted this one though. The composition kinda bugs me because the girl is barely in the frame.

I'm not criticising your compositional skills because I know you wouldn't have composed it this way if you were actually paying close attention to what you were doing. I guess I'm criticising your choice of material for this blog. Surely you have something better than this in your archives.

Sorry Suby but I've come to expect only the best from you.
Suby & Sinem: I think thats the REASON I DID post this shot, cause of the way the woman and man ended up being framed in the shot, images do not always have to tick all the boxes, it's always good to be different once in a while. I actually had this shot in my unassigned folder for a few days and had just been waiting for the opportunity to post up smile Yes I do have DIFFERENT shots in my archives that may tick all the boxes, but hey one can never grow if one does not experiment once in a while.

EEccck it is soo hard to impress the Timmys of this world smile

I think this is pretty fair. While these kinds of shots aren't my favorites, I do find them interesting, but only as long as it is clear that they are blind shots, otherwise they don't work for me.

I know exactly what you mean about life suddenly getting busy. I barely have had time to breathe the last few days, and I wasn't prepared for all that is going on. No break in sight either. My shots have been hard to put up, and I pretty much ran out of "good" stuff and have settled for my second string shots so to speak. Pretty soon I will run out of those, Yikes!
Suby & Sinem: The Subster have second string shots (sorry don't know what you talking about Ma'am) smile

Me want to see some people shots from Laurie, will get bored soon smile

If you framed this more to the right to get both of them properly in frame, then I guess this shot would look alright. As it is now, as Timmy has said, I'm not sure why you're posting this.
Suby & Sinem: Since I was holding the camera on my ;ap, don't think i had the option on framing more to the right. It was a lucky catch and as to why I am posting, cause it actually did come out very nice, I really do love the way the woman is slightly framed at an angle in the SHOT. smile Thanks for the comments bro smile

That did come out great!! Gotta love life's little surprises!
At 70mm...this is good. I would have done it at say 18mm. Good work.
Suby & Sinem: I was lucky to get this shot at all, I had my 70mm-300mm lens in and was just taking a rest when I noticed the couple, just had enough time to switch on the camera and snap smile Suby

Hi Suby, thanks for your comments on my blog.
Lovely shot. Nice post processing.
Experimenting is good, the angle is good and fresh every once in a while, the facial expressions are good, I have no problem with her mostly out of the frame, and for the way you got this grab shot, its good photography and an excellent technique for street shooting.

Not sure I'm feeling the shot. The angle, color composition work... BUT it looks kinda doctored up in the sense that the guy looks like he was cut from another picture and placed in this one. The girl looks more natural!...Just my 2 cents!

It is pretty awesome considering that it was taken from your lap.

Ok I like everything about this one, except the lighting.I know its not under your control but the lighting kills it for me, the guy should be lit up and the lady should be dim.Thats it.
GREAT SHOT!!!
Suby & Sinem: You should know my style by now Azhar, I NEVER comform to the norm, I actually PP'd this shot exactly as you see it, the lady was not lit up but decided to flip things around. Works well for me.

One does not always have to comform to all rules for one to get a great image
