Great idea - making the best of what you've got makes this shot. The fill-in flash is perfect.
Ah, the Braun EF3 with its tube-shaped, flash tube and 360 degrees swivelling (removable) reflector. I remember it well. Even today it would have been a great piece of kit. I guess it was perfect for shots like this. Back in the late '60s the EF3 served as my very first studio flash. I bought a photo-brolly, mounted it on a tripod and used a piece of string to position the ensemble and give me the correct exposure. Shove a roll of FP3 in the C3 (or Rollei) and off you go. Magic. Just like your photo H...
Wow! The subject's warmth and sincerity simply leaps out at you. This is obviously one nice lady, captured perfectly by someone who understands the true meaning of portraiture. No airbrushing or de-humanisation. It must make EPZ's army of Photoshop sycophants spill tears all over their 'airbrush' filters.
Cor, four for the price of two.
Great. What a bunch of little monsters. I just wonder if the 'new' St Trinians film is as good. I'll bet they've concentrated on acres of black-stockinged legs instead of what Searle intended -- uncontrolled mischievous mayhem. I have to admit I wouldn't complain too loudly but a combination of both would be ideal. Well done H. And thanks...
I couldn't agree more with Canonshot. You can't judge this sort of shot because it is what it is. However, what it does have is stunning technique that rivals anything we see today. Just how far have we come? Bresson was right about the decisive moment and Neil was right too -- the essence of photography at its best.
You've captured two professional images and characters in one shot. Top quality image. I'm glad you disabled voting on some of your shots because stuff like this is so good voting would cheapen it. Besides, you would only get about six votes anyway. Pure photography comes second to Photoshop 'imaging' on EPZ -- dig out out the cliches... What you have to do is find a coal cellar, use your best mate as a model; put a syringe on the floor, underexpose the pic so it only has two tones and wait for the votes to flood in. Yuk. No more... Please...
