An insight into the Mind of Suby
I wanted to go for the old school weathered and beaten film look. You know the kinda of look you see in old B&W cowboy films.
When I saw this scene, even before I started shooting frames, I knew what type of finished product I wanted. I studied the angles, the scenery, the lighting. Thought of the composition, thought of my camera settings (although I missed the fact my ISO was at 800), what lens was suitable for what I wanted to capture? Thought of how I would convert to monochrome and whatever else PPing I would do to this shot. This was all done in about 3 minutes and while Sinem was getting ready for a horse ride (Suby and horses do not go together :) ).
Then I started snapping. I think I took about 10 snaps of the scene of which I really love 5.
As Skee says"Knowing your camera, inside out, means that, their are no technical contraints, giving total room for creativity"
One of my hobbies I have had since I was old enough to think is what I call "People Watching". I love sitting down and just watching people. I think this has fueled my love for Portraits but it has also helped me in being able to SEE the beauty in almost anything. Seeing this beauty and presenting to your fellow humans are 2 different things.
The art of photography to me is the art of learning how to cross that bridge. To be able to present what our eyes or minds "see".
