Beauty Always Shines Through

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

I love people photography, yep you guys are probably tired of hearing me say that LOL. It is about capturing those ICONIC images that will one day be loved not only in peoples homes but seen world wide, am I there yet? HELL NO, but I wish & pray and hopefully I am on my way there.

One of the most ICONIC and widely recognised image of this generation is of a poor Afghan Girl named Sharbat Gula. For me this is the type of image I would love to be known for. It may be about being in the right place at the right time, or about getting your images out there with the right medium, it is hard work, but it can be done. I WILL DO IT.

"beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph." Matt Hardy

Think hard before snapping, whatever the form of photography you are endeavouring to capture, think of how you want to show of the beauty of that image.

"I chose nature photography as a way of capturing and sharing the beauty, power, and fragility of wild places and the life that inhabits them, so that those who have become mired in the man-made chaos may open their eyes to the real world". -Guy Tal

I long to arrest all beauty that comes before me, and at length, this longing WILL be satisfied.

Words and photography by Suby

"Ars longa, vita brevis."

I am currently looking for models (male or female) who will be interested in posing for me. Please feel free to contact me with your details.

Nice collage. The one lady in the first vertical picture(left) and the first lady in the bottom right pic could have used some cloning for the blemmishes on their face...they seem to draw my attention when I look at this nice layout.
Suby & Sinem: Blemeshes, what blemeshes? :d

sharbat gula's stare was always so fixating....i know that urtrying out these collages but those b/w photos would look simply FANTASTIC on their own...i also like the way you've stated what you want to capture through people photography....8.5/10
Suby & Sinem: Yup bro, these shots would look amazing on their own, but need to keep on trying the collages bro, if I do not try, how will I learn? grin

suby i know how difficult it is to frame these shots to fit within shutterchances dimensions. i saw a download on the adobe photoshop downloads the other day for an action (i think) that is setup to use a grid but it saves each photo on a separate layer. i think theres only 8000 + ps downloads so shouldn't be a problem finding it. wink i think i sorted by star ratings and it was in the first couple of 5 star pages. might be worthwhile checking out. the only thing i am going to comment about your nice montage is the fonts. Fonts need whitespace and they look like an after thought to fill the gap here. fonts can make or break something like this and they can be quite subliminal in their effect. you have formal type shots and yet you are using causual font faces. I will not talk about comic sans which is a pet hat of mine. if i was processing this shot i would use 1 only font and if you wanted to emphasize you could do a selective colour or a bold or bigger font etc. i would probably have cut the top section of the left photo giving you a lot more space to work with on your page. I know you are striving for something individual but skee's last couple of posts are good examples of giving the words room to breathe. You could try a nice san serifed font. next time you are out shooting. The majority of signs and posters will use sans serifed fonts. because they are mostly evenly weighted and stand out from a distance. fancy writing fonts dont. serifed fonts like times new roman etc are for long passages of text. too many words i know. good luck in your next montage.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the tips, I did have a look at the Skee's collages and actually put one together using his style, but guess what? It's not ME, and I just did not like what I was staring at grin

As for the font, blame me, an edit with "sensible fonts" but once again, I just decided to try these different fnts out, looked better to me, but what do I know? tongue

From the number of colours I use even in my comments, you should guess what I will always do, smile

Suby
Hi !
I like that very much, this kind of work with graphism and nice pictures gives a very attractive poster I would like to see in big format smile
Have a nice day smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, me glad you like.

You're a people person my friend.....great job as usual....
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Mike,

Thanks for your visit... if you're not a "a flower photography liking kinda person"... I'm not a portrait photography person... I feel more relaxed when shooting flowers, animals or architecture... you won't see anyone on my pictures. Or scarcely. Anyway, you did a great job beacause it's not enough to shoot people. A good photographer must give to a portrait picure its humanity. You succeed in.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the comments Florence, maybe ou will convince me to take more flower shots grin

I like the picts individually but put together don't seem to make a harmoniuos composition, maybe if you did it just in B&W or colors the effect would be nicer. Ohh and that girl looks happy. x
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Clover, I am still trying to learn how to achieve that perfect collage, keep the critics and tips flowing grin

In reference to the rather snide comment on my blog, here is my response (which incidentally I left on my site as well.

Excuse me Suby? That comment was directed at Yanik's statement apologizing to those who do not appreciate wildlife photography. I wanted him to not feel the need to apologise.

"I know many of you don’t like wildlife photography-for those of you who do, hope you enjoy grin"

You must have some ego to think it was directed at you. I think you need to check it at the door.

I have lots of people shots of clients and not so many successful ones of wildlife. Wildlife is by far the most difficult to capture. I think your the one with little knowledge here.

Unless you are the Papparazi trying to sneak shots of unwilling celebs, or you are a sports photographer, doing portraits of people who are paying you to do it, or posing for you or don't mind having their pictures done is much easier than wildlife.
Suby & Sinem: Laurie, Laurie, Laurie, Snide comment, me? NEVERRR....

See response on your blog grin

Hey Suby, I know you loke to keep your secrets tighter than a squirrel hiding his nuts! wink But I've never done any collage type stuff! Do you create them in photo shop or do you use another programme to create them, any basic tips would be gratefully recieved for me to have a try. Mal
Suby & Sinem: Eeeck if I told you I would have to kill you, smile Do me a favour, send me an email with this query, I will try to find some info for you and put toghether something quick, but send me the email smile

Beauty is... friendship, a smile, and everything in your collage. Lovely captures, all of them.

Two things I'm not really feeling in this is the background colour and the text... the green goes with the middle shot on the right, but with the rest, a different colour might have looked better.
Suby & Sinem: Mia, hopefully will get it right someday soon smile

I guess you are already "famous" for your honest comments on several photo blogs! For sure you will be able to bring your fame to the next level!
Great pictures of beautiful people!
