Half A Wheel


Hello again folks. Yes a rarity these days, Sinem & Suby posting 2 days in a row. We thought we should just remind you guys that we do also enjoy other forms of photography. Yes majority of our work is people based, but we do also get work from so many diverse clientelle.

This is an image taken hand held about a year ago. We sometimes comment on blogs and sometimes are quite critical of the work we see, this is not because we think we are better photographers, but because we genuinly believe only by us passing on the little knowledge we have, can we help others improve on their art.

We say this cause sometimes we see that some do not think outside the box, photography is not about how much Photoshop/retouching one can do to the imagery, it starts of being about how you see & capture the moment. Some of the most famous and poignant images the world has seen are straight of the camera, no fancy retouching, but the basic elements for a stunning image is always there.

Don't stop at taking a picture of a kid staring at the camera placed centre of the image,
Don't stop at taking a picture at a wedding where the bride is always smiling into the camera,
Don't stop at taking a picture in the studio that looks similar to a million other images you have taken or seen.
Don't stop at taking the norm, capturing the same, doing what everyone else does.

Let your mind have fun, make your camera an extension of your mind:
have fun with the moments you capture,
how you capture them,
why you capture them and
how you intend to present them 1st to yourself and then the world.

Are you reinventing the wheel? NO

But you darn are going to give it a good bashing to make it your own.

We definitely are still Suby & Sinem - Creative Photographers

That is excellent. My favourite of yours in quite a while. It is a nice tight composition.

cool night shot guys, glad to see the wheels are still turning in your world. all the best. mal
This is a nice image. Very good for night/low light without a tripod. I normally prefer night images with some detail in the sky, but I think that would spoil it here.

Nice to read your comments - with packages such as Photoshop etc people can do some bizzare things to an image and I think sometimes they forget that there's nothing wrong with a good image straight off the camera - no fancy distortion, filters etc.

This really is an eye-catcher, S&S. Well done! Something different from your ordinary! smile
Dramatic shot. I like the range of colors and sense of movement.

Atomic light will shine... While this isn't too far out of the box, it is certainly an attention grabbing shot. The glow of the bottom parts of the gondolas is a very nice touch. Like the how it fills the frame too.

Splendid image!
I stopped entering competitions at our camera club because I want to take pictures to please me, not a judge. If others like them that's a bonus and if they offer helpful advice then that's great.
You are right in all you say and keep on saying it.

Oh..I like this picture by the waysmile

Finally some wise words here, words I say a million times, I post what I want, not what I think SC want me to show, if they look that is okay, if they don't like it, that is okay, please give me some advice to improve, that is okay, I like your picture of today, the colors ares stunning, but I like night pictures, it makes me wonder though, so many views and so little comments.......have a nice evening.

Like this shot, and also what you've written. It's refreshing to see someone be reflective about what we do and why we do it.
don't stop titling images with things that are not there, I am sorry to disappoint you but this is not half a wheel, definitely creatively over titled

LOL
Suby & Sinem: LOL bro, awwww smile Did not tilt, we just stood under the wheel and shot this grin

nice shot, I like the colors and framing. Did you mean to say quater of a wheel in your title smile
My first thought was: "Your photography is fantastic but your maths are lousy - this is a qaurter(ish) of a wheel!"

Then I read all the comments to see if anyone else had picked up on that before posting my thoughts, and yes, Patrick's beaten me to it, so I won't say that now.
Suby & Sinem: LOL Colin, dang you nerdy guys grin
