Activity

newfocus

When not modelling 'hair' made for me out of various plants, I'm usually working on web-based ventures or one kind or another or out and about with the camera in North East England. Recently I've mostly been shooting time lapse rather than stills.

I value genuinely honest feedback, so any comments are welcome on my portfolio, no matter what you think. I hope you enjoy the visit.

John.

  • Bye bye Canon 450D

    Love the light painted orb. Hope the camera recovers.

  • LETTERS NEVER SENT

    Really beautifully lit Keith. If I'm really looking hard for suggestions to make I do tend to agree with Nick on the placement of the photo as a minor point. I love the quality of the specular highlights on the books though and reflection in the desk.

    BTW - I subliminally registered the old book to the right of the candle as being an antique book on 'The World Wide Web' before the more conscious part of my brain finally went 'hold on' and went back for a second look Smile

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Looks like the plan paid off. Fantastic shot.

  • Long & Short of it...

    Great comp and colours - and the motion in the sky really sets it off.

  • Milking It

    Me too - the water gives the shot loads of energy.

  • Waking The Witch

    I think most of the helpful feedback has been said but just to add that years back I read a photoshop compositing tutorial and the key to a convincing result really was to have everything shot in the same way. In addition to the similar direction and quality of light that's been mentioned, the focal length and dof of the shot need to match for best possible results, e.g. model shot with a mid/telephoto lens against a wide angle landscape will tend to look a little like a cardboard cutout whereas similar focal lengths will be more natural/convincing.

    I'll paste a link if I can find it again - looking forward to seeing more.

  • I don't often comment on full portfolios but there are a whole load of consistently powerful landscapes here that really caught my attention. Fantastic work.

  • Congratulations Paul (I'm guessing I can go public with this now Smile ). A cracking couple of images in the final. Liked the second one in particular - so much going on.

    cheers,
    John.
  • Hi Keith,

    I know I'm not the first to say it, but your railway shots you've been doing are a real inspiration. The combination of the industrial power and real human feel to the shots you've captured is fantastic.

    cheers,
    John.

  • I first spotted your work on photo.net but it's good to see you posting here too Adam. Really inspiring stuff.
  • Stunning stuff Mark. Really dramatic mood and light in a lot of them.
