Enae & Chris

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

I had two budding photographers/prosumers come down to MK last week for a Tutorial visit (okay you out there, stop sniggering) LOL

Yes I am surprised as well, some people actually think I know what I am talking about in this photography business, oh well.

I took this shot while trying to demonstrate selective AF points to Enae & Chris. I really hope they walked away from our day together being pointed in the right direction by myself. I enjoyed this session so much The Alakija Man & I are thinking of running more formal sessions in the nearest future. So stay tuned folks.

I have more or less taught myself all I know about photography, I remember the days when people used to mention things like changing the  "shutter speed" and "apperture" and I used to go "what, in English please?"

Well many sleepless nights & "neglection" of the wife (I even took one of my photography book's with me on my honeymoon and I DID READ IT) later, it is actually starting to make sense (I said "started to")

I want to carve a niche for myself, I want to be known for presenting unique type of images, I want to be known for my friendliness, I want to be known for being always ready to help my fellow prosumers/photographers, I WANT TO BE A SUCCESFUL PHOTOGRAPHER.

I make no apologies that I edit my images with Photoshop CS2, I make no apologies that my images are somewhat dark, I make no apologies that I like to be different. I make no apologies that I sometimes get it wrong... but I DO KEEP ON TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT. 

I start each day thinking, who am I going to make beautiful today? Who am I going to help? Who is going to need the Subster?

I want to leave every one with one thing, the MEMORIES of my images. For me thats what it's all about.

P.s

Oh I forgot to add I attended a photography course as well sometime last year, waste of time, I left still thinking "huh". It went to fast and quick, too many people on the course, 3 months down the drain.

Maybe I should teach photography!

I wonder how much it would be worth though.
Suby & Sinem: Hope it's plenty smile

LOL, Photography students! A very wothwhile trip I must say. At the end of this day I was shooting in manual and seemed to know what I was doing grin, at least my subjects were actually in focus. Funny thing is, I was going to post one of the pictures taken on that day - guess that may be some other time now smile
Suby & Sinem: You should still post the shot, would love to see how you would have edited the image tongue Looking forward to seeing it soon.

The processing on this one left a thin halo around the woman's outline making it look as if she was masked out of one shot and added to this one. I'm not really feeling this one.

You can't "learn" photography in a 3 month course. I took 2 years of classes from a Vietnam photojournalist back in my high school days. We started out by making pin-hole cameras and went from there. It was all about light, exposure, and composition. (We also had to process all our film and post processing and making the prints ourselves.) It was very fun and fascinating stuff. I only wish I had taken more courses in college, but I didn't. I forgot so much of what I learned from lack of using it. I may go back to school in the Fall of next year.
Suby & Sinem: Been in the gane of photography for about 12 years or soo, but decided to take it up a notch by attending a course, as i said, felt THAT course did not address the needs I had.

Some of the best photographers are self taught, Elliott Erwitt, taught himself by reading the instructions off a camera box smile. Some many people and so many stories, but they all have one thing in common... THEY ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS! Suby I wish you the best and hope that you really achieve your goals smile

I like the pose of your friends and also the colors ...

I guess I know the least on the technical side of photography ... I click by gut-feeling; whatever feels right ... I know so little that I prefer to give a positive spin to it ..."tremendous scope for improvement"... that feels nice.
Suby & Sinem: We all Learning Intern, we all learning.

Subster,

That's one reason we are all here on line to to share our thoughts and knowledge with each other so we all can grow. We may not always agree but we learn.

The more I look at this photo the more it grows on me. At first I was bothered that they looked almost pasted onto the background but actually that is what I like about it.
Suby & Sinem: AP, thanks I always try to make the the central characters in my images stand out as if they are going to pop out, I love that almosted pasted feel when I can achieve it smile

You have fun and we have fun with your images. Keep going Suby! ;-)
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Sidney, same with you as well.

Suby
Nice photo and story... One of my photographer friends once told me before I started, there are a lot of literatures on how to take a photograph but its mostly 'nike'... you 'just do it!' (not advertising here by using their slogan... grin) As long as you're having fun and very willing to learn then you are doing it right. smile
Keep it up Subster! Maybe someday you'd decide to write something about photograph and we can also learn from you! wink
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Francis, it trully is all about getting out and shooting. Who knows, maybe I will one day have a book out there (now that would be a laugh grin)
All I can say is - thanx Suby, you are a true guru - one who's always ready to share the tricks. I guess most of us on shutterchance look up to you to learn a thing or two everyday. Thanx for being the milestone that I want to reach. God Bless You.

You get 'em, Suby!! This is wonderful! You're going to succeed, I've no doubt. Just keep repeating paragraph #6, only changing 'I want to' to 'I will be' and working your tail off.

Much luck to you. Keep us updated!!

nice processing! the woman's edges need a bit more work, though...
I like the compositon here, but the image looks over photoshoped. Overall, I can feel the mood.

"Misprinted book of Love". Nobody ever has to apologize for doing what they want so long as their actions are respectful to others and their freedom.

Kepp it up Suby, when you are nice you are delicious.

Hey Jude I just saw your Monalisa, interesting. I left my thoughts for you.
And so the pupil becomes the teacher. Nice work smile
Suby & Sinem: We all still learning bro, But I will at any opportunity I get pass on the little I know (or think I know) smile

I dont know what to say about this shot. I am considering talking to my solicitors to write the subster for the use of my image without permission (just joking). Thanks for the tutorials, i'm sure you have started seeing some improvements.
No one should be ashamed of processing their photographs in CS2 or in a an analog darkroom. It is part of the process. Digital photography has opened doors that never existed before in film. Those that prefece their photographs with, "This image is unedited and straight out of the camera..." are totally missing the big picture and missing out on great creative opportunities. Photography (for me) is all about generating an emotional response with the viewer and accurately portraying what I saw and felt while taking the image. If you want straight, unedited, sterile shots -go be a journalist!

Great work Sub!

Don't make any apologies Suby; that's your style! smile I'm sure your disciples learned a thing or two. None of that "gibberish" makes any sense when you are starting out.
