  • man on the go.........

    Your focus is always spot on ee....something I admire very much in your work.....my current candid Street Portraiture is more ...hit and miss....just hoping that the camera focuses on the right spot.

    Requested portraits are easier in theory because your subject has agreed to be still under your instruction for a while.....but having practiced it....nervousness can affect focus.....
    ........as know only to well.

    Quote:It all works nicely. Assuming that you did want critique, is there any aspect of the picture that you're not happy with?

    I like the sharpness, the nicely controlled tones, and the upfront, almost confrontational composition. It would be very easy for the subject ot look threatening - but his questioning, uncertain expression undermines that. Intriguing.

    I'd like to see a little less shadow in his eves, perhaps.



    Thank you Dudler .....just the kind of feedback I was seeking....I too liked what the KODAK TRI X film filter does...but wondered if it removed the detail we capture with digital.
    The Tri X film was noted for graininess, but not having used it I was unsure....his eyes....I did brighten using the shadows filter but didnít want to overdo it.....all a matter of balance.

    I too like his expression....quite happy for me to shoot away, but not the least bit interested in photography or what the result might be....

    All of my happy to pose subjects are offered digital copies.

    Thank you too to all other contributors.

  • summer wind

    WOW ! Leo you have excelled yourself here, for depicting a force invisible to the eye except like this....second-hand so to speak.

    By looking at those bending leaves with their swirling grasses back-drop the observer can almost hear and feel the stiff summer breeze.

    One of your best .

  • Rajasthani woman

    Another fantastic study Sawsengee ..... there is a slight cheeky/challenging/ confident look in her eyes....you have captured it beautifully.

    Street Portraiture is so rewarding in many ways.
