Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

Taking almost at the same spot as yesterdays image. One thing that I was amazed at was the shere number of people walking around brandashing SLRs, & point and shoots. Seems everyone has picked up the photography bug.

For this shot, I decided to take it in JPEG using the camera's B&W settings. Lets just say I cheated a little LOL. Sometimes when I cannot be bothered getting too fancy converting an image to monochrome in Photoshop, I let the camera do most of the work for me. I then sit down and play with the curves to give it the added tones and dynamics.

So PPing job automatically cut in half. I wanted the central focus of the image to POP out, so I PPed it that way.

I like the camera's processing. At least on my 5D, I use it all the time for my mono shots too. Interesting shot, I think it would have been good if you took it from a different angle to include what was being photographed.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Bro, I did take a shot6 of the veiw she was photographing but did not like the way it turned out, by the time I hade morved angles she had already started to lower the camers so the shot went bye bye delete smile

This image is jumping right at me. I am really liking you last few post sir. Well done.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Bro, we are trying smile

It looks almost three dimensional so you did get the pop you were looking for.
Hi Suby. it does seem as if every man and his dog has a digital these days and the labs are loving it!! Interstingly enough, I was chatting to one of my clients the other day who was bemoaning the cost of a pro selling pics from a school concert, so I asked him why he oe his wife did not take the pics themselves on their digital - his reply; "I would rather leave it to guys like you, who know what they are doing". Nuff said. The reason I mention this, is that looking at your photo here, it seems that somebody forgot to tell this lady that there is an EVF on her camera!! Very nice pic, it does jump out. Am maybe in agreement with Jide about the angle. Regards, Neil.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Bro, the truth was I almost missed the shot, she was actually starting to move the camera away from her face when I took the shot, so there was no time to get fancy with the angles. It was snap as fast as I can smile

Everyone sure has caught the bug. It will be most interesting seeing if she and all the others are still shooting as much in ten or twenty years.

So, you saw this shot and thought b&w right from the start. That's one of your most important rules, right? Know what you want your finished image to look like. (more or less) I remember.
Suby & Sinem: Yup I saw the scene I de cided to shoot in JPEG and B&W straight from the camera. I am really glad I did as I now have some lovely images that only require very little tweaking to them smile

Hehehe (whatever the emoticon is for an evil grin). I find it very hard to visualise in B&W which is why I hardly ever put any up. Sometimes I shoot in raw, and set the camera to mono which allows me to view a scene in B&W on the monitor but have the option of choosing colour later. Anyway, I digress... She doesn't quite pop for me - needs a bit more differentiation from the b/g. More niggles: she seems to be looking down rather than at the camera; all the other people are looking away from you (maybe they're think "Whoa, it's the Subster, look the other way or we'll be on Shutterchance"). Finally, although she's straight, everything else looks crooked. Was she leaning over? smile smile Don't get me wrong though, it's not *bad*. I'm only saying this because I know you appreciate honest comments!!
Suby & Sinem: PArty pooper Steve LOL. Nope I always appreciate honesty, so never stop dishing it out here. She was actually pulling the camera away from her face when I took this shot, she had already finished taking her shot when I spoted her.

Doesn't Pop out for you, eeeeehhh? What does the Subster have to do to please Steve? grin

Nice shot, the composition is excellent.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Craig,

Suby, I like this shot. I dont think you had too much control of what your subject is looking at, so i will have to disagree with those critiqing the subject. I think you have defined this picture in your title "eyes on the photographer" and thats exactly what the pic depicts. Crisp B & W!!
Suby & Sinem: Dotun, Thanks for the reinforcement grin

nice bw shot, cool crop but in my mind could the woman stand a bit more right smile
Suby & Sinem: I wish she could, but had no control over where she stood, was a one time shot, saw it and had to move very fast to take it smile
