Megan in Catsuit by Philo

Megan in Catsuit

Thanks for the comments and mods, everyone, all very helpful.

Richard, great point about the lightness of her arms compared to her face. I don't think the 28mm focal length helps but I had no room to work in.

Willie, I do like the central crop but your mod provides a good alternative. I particularly like losing some at the bottom and the work on the eyes. Her catsuit seems too dark though.

Many thanks again.

Tell me about it, Willie, she starts high school in September. I want her to stay like this for a while.

Hi Paul, thanks for the feedback and mods, they are all good points that I will take on board. A also agree that under exposing would have helped.

Cheers,

This looks familiar, PhilWink
Lovely contrast between the steam and sky, something I have not achieved in my various visits.

It's HDR, Richard, so yes maybe a touch light. It will hopefully print fine though.

Thanks, Willie, I will take note of your suggestions. In hindsight I may have been better with f/4 and bumping up the ISO but, as you point out, it is acceptable. The polariser worked a dream; without it the bonnet looked washed out.
I don't believe they make the GTO in white so this is quite unique. It has a few engine mods too!

Cheers,

Thanks, Paul, appreciate the positive comments. For V1 I had record shot in mind (possible camera club entry) so I didn't want any wide angle distortion and flashes were not used.

I forgot to upload V2 which did use the 2 flashes and radio triggers. Blush Settings for V2 are 70mm, f/2.8, 1/200s,. The D7100 can sync up to 1/350s with compatible flashes. Flash in the cabin is a god idea so I may give that a go.

Thanks, Paul, the reason I chose this one is that it has a respectable background unlike the vast majority of my football shots.

Shots from the entire game can be seen here if anyone is ineterested.

Thanks, Willie, Methley is the village I live in. I wanted a Facebook page to differentiate my shots so I came up with Methley Photography. I don't normally use the watermark on here, just a slip up.

Thanks, Willie, your diffused glow mod is what I was aiming for so I will have a go at that. Good point about the nose reflection.

Media City by night (Home of the BBC) Salford Quays, Manchester. Uk

Assuming you had a tripod I would go with manual and try an aperture of f/11 or f/16. Your wide aperture of f/3.5 has resulted in the street lights appearing as blobs but a smaller aperture would give nice starbursts. The resultant long exposure would smooth out the ripples in the water giving better reflections.
The composition and overall image is great, especially with Moira's crop suggestions. I would love to get to this place!
A warm welcome from me too.Smile

On The Roof

Thanks for the mod and feedback, Moira. I started with a brighter version than this, then I went dark and moody and finally ended up with this one somewhere inbetween. Brighter definitely sounds better for the poster so I think I will follow your advice there.
The sky was actually quite bright which meant I had to underexpose to hold it back. Yes the vest was toned down but the red valves are just a drab colour...no rust I hope, they are new!
Access is never a problem for me as I am a construction site manager. It's just a pain taking photos wearing full PPE, especially gloves, glasses and helmet!

Hi Paul, that's a great story of how you got into photography. I am being asked by our company to photograph all our sites in Yorkshire and hopefully I can expand on this. Sadly I couldn't get any further back as the tank I was stood completely blocks the view. I was struggling to fit everything in even at 10mm.

Willie, I am very impressed with the adaptive wide angle tool, before using it this looked like it was taken with a fisheye. I do take a variety of shots but this one captures almost the entire project in one.

Thanks,

Phil
