Death

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

Okay continuing with my little theme of posting images that have no people in them. It's proving a little harder than I thought it would be.

I am very critical of my none people shots as I feel they are not my strong points and always feel they are not good enough to be posted. I think it's time I really did let you guys, my loyal veiwers (see I am already buttering you guys up LOL) give me your opinions, critics, tips on how I can take better non people oriented shots.

I am always taking shots in cemeteries, don't know why, just seem to have as can be seen in Final Stop an image I posted up a loooong while ago.

Thanks all for the comments yesterday, really appreciated. Hope you guys are all having a wonderful Sunday. Keep smiling and ofcourse keep blogging.

I think non people shots are very difficult.
I can not help you since I avoid them for the same reasons as you.
I find my non people shots very boring.

If no people means death ... you better stick with people ...

Talking about no people, how about architecture ... I find architectural shots best when there's no person in the frame, because then it brings out the real structural beauty without any distraction ...
thereĀ“s a message here in a lone tombstone and that is that we all die alone. you depicted this very well... nice

Wonderful treatment here Subster. I agree wholeheartedly with neil's interpretation. That's why I want to live forever. Now all I have to do is discover the secret of eternal youth. I've been posting a few cemetary shots myself.
nice one, the background is just a big pattern smile

Cemeteries are facinating places to photograph Suby; not sure about the composition of this shot though, the gravestone is a touch to central for me!

My good man, CURSE YOU.....am posting a gravestone tomorrow and i believe you are stealing this thing from me called MY THUNDER.....
i sorta agree with az but in a much gentler way because i like the shot a lot more than he does...i know these shots arent your forte and being the kind and caring individual that i am i shall go easier on the ratings for this one...i like the pping here...but i believe u cudve played a bit more with lights and shadows to add drama BUT....8.25/10

nice shot suby. i think a square crop could be what it needs or maybe a slight haircut on top.

Suby, before I started blogging, the majority of my shots were portraits...if you can believe that. That was all I wanted to do, and I was so out of my comfort zone doing anything else. Then my "models" (my daughters) quit posing for me. I was forced into new territory.

I like this! This would look good matted and framed. My suggestions...I would go with a wider angle maybe and come in closer. And when you're not shooting portraits, the light temperature really starts becoming more critical. Are you an early riser? Of course evening sun is so delicious if you can do that hour of the day, too.

If this is a sample of what's to come from you, I can't wait to see more. Get out there and keep shooting. Maybe you'll have to start a second blog.

It looks a little like the light was harsh? So perhaps it was midday? Try shooting early or late for these types of shots. Tighter focus on the headstone and shallow DOF would be good for this type of shot too I think.

It looks like a sketch. I like the composition. The light doesn't look optimal since the leaves are so bright, but I like it. Good use of symbolism in this one.
The way of all flesh... (and more)
emotional shot....light and bw tone give a touch of feeling in this shotsmile)
