The Beautiful Game I

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

I  start another series today folks. It's all about football in this series.

What I aim to do is present the beautiful game with the Subster's unique style, This is the beautiful game the way I see it. I do not watch football or have any interest in the game. However football like other sports is a playground for fantastic images. It is one of the hardest forms of photography to capture and one of the most rewarding when it all comes together.

I would advise you the budding photographer/prosuners out there, find a sport this weekend to shoot, it is a lot harder than it looks, but it does help you horn your skills in knowing just when and what angles to capture an image.

I use a phrase very often "The Subster's unique..." WHY?

I want my images to stand out, I want them to be one of a kind, I want them to have my own brand, I want to be different. I want them to be images I will look back in 20 years time and still be proud of them.

So I present to you my own interpretations of the beautiful game. Hope you all enjoy this series.

I this supposed to be HDR? I don't think you did it properly...but that my own opinion.

Nice action shot. I like how motion is implied as they are frozen in time. The colors are vibrant. I would try to blur out the ads. I bet this one would look great in classic sepia too.
hey suby,

wow man, this is one for the books. an amazing shot and brilliant pping. the angle is perfect, the dof is dead on with just the right amount of background blur, and the colors are increadibly vivid. the motion capture is undeniably the most incredible part of this shot...it is like this intense motion has been frozen in time for all to wittness. bravo suby!

if only they would stand still for a few seconds it would be a whole lot easier. This looks like a faux holga action on this one suby or is it your patented super secret squirrel handywork

yup, sport is deadly hard to capture....don't like the hdr-ish effect on the top left but other than that since i'm a die-hard arsenal fan, i love it suby....8.25/10
Love this one and look forward for the next ! What i love is this moove effect around the ball and the really great expression of these two guys ! Once again Bravo !! Did you ever think about these poor guy (as me) wich feel depressive looking at your work ? Please, one of these week would you post bad shot, with bad framing and ugly subject in order to help us to be a little more optimist
Hmmmm ?

Hey, I'm short on time, so I can't right much. I can tell you that I like it though. I like the fact that the two players are seen at the same angle, seeming to form parallel lines.

Cheers,
Tim

Nice one. I like the way the players are concentrating, really hard, on the ball .. it was good of them to leave it still for a moment

I have been meaning to go out and shoot some sports! I might take you up on that challenge, and a challenge it would be! I love the capture of the action! You caught the perfect moment here. The end of the day lighting was very good, too. No blown out highlights to worry about. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

OK, Subster! Challenge accepted! smile There's a university nearby where they play all types of sports and with all ages. I even saw some Australian football being played! I'll head over this evening. Good shot. I would have liked to see some motion blur, not Photoshop style, but real so I get more of a sense of action.

The black uy seems to be superimposed in the shot. Is this how you intended?

This is a great action shot. It's a bit dark but not too dark. Very nice.
Suby this is nice...I envy good action photos.

Ah (he said still working backwards) you see - nothing wrong wiith colour.

I think your shutter speed was a bit too quick for this, Suby. It's frozen solid. I'd have preferred to see a blur on the ball, but even if that had been stationary, then some blur in the feet of the guy running across the scene. I appreciate that would mean a smaller aperture and therefore greater depth of field bringing that fussy background into sharper focus.

So ...alternatives? Different background, ND filter, or wait until the play is further away from the background.

By the way...er...I...um...I've never done this type of photography before, so it may be a load of tosh, but it sounds logical!
