    Hi Moira and Duddler

    Again thank you. I have taken a step back from full manual settings and decided to shoot in aperture priority. The reason I have decided to do this, is to allow myself time to think about composition, framing and narrative. Your advice has been invaluable.

    Moira, I love how you have completely changed the image. I shall give it a try

    Duddler, I understand what you are saying about interaction but I worry that the subject would become something that would closer to my version of them instead of it being a factual representation. As I mentioned before the lens choice was more of a financial decision and also a technical learning experience too

    I'll keep sending you guys images and maybe you'll make a photographer out of my yet.... Also, I love Martin Parr

  • The lettet by Balance_78

    Hi Willie and Moira

    1st of all I would like to say thank you.
    I shoot in bnw and I'm no a big fan of converting, I feel something is lost when converting.
    The settings were chosen because there was a lot of light and I wanted a little bit of bokeh. I will have to work on my invisibility, I find it difficult because I am 6ft 3in and very broad.

    What I will take away from this, is: work on framing the shot, change perspective and include a narrative to add to the story

  • Kick out the jams by Balance_78

    Good morning everyone,
    Thank you for your kind words. 1st of all, let me address the title. It's the title of a single/ album by the MC5 in 1969 and the gentleman in the image reminded me of one of their roadies.
    The reason the image was taken at that height is, it was very much shot from the hip, a very last second decision. It was captured on the 1st warm spell we had in Manchester and everyone had gathered in Stephenson square to enjoy each other company.

    I shoot almost exclusively in mono, with a prime MF lens. On the day I was shooting in aperture priority.

    I hope I have answered your questions and I can't wait to see your replys.
    I can't seem to see where you guys have uploaded the Mods too
