A quick view of pablophotographer's recent activity.

  • Sunday morning in Civitavecchia

    From my experience using other people's iphones they are quite capable in calculating lighting and taking good pictures. And that was with phones like yours or previous models so I suppose the newer ones have upped the game.

  • Slide squared

    Yoohoo.... Applied Mathematics, I love the subject.
    Since you can't square it... find the root of it instead...
    The square root of 2 is 1,4142...
    Hence my crop leaves out the feet and the little one on the left.
    I kept in the One plus 4 mates on right and one with the ball on the left.
    As extra bonus I add this, not entirely out of context. Roots and adrenaline.

  • As the Sun sets.....

    A guy runs amok in the scene shouting: ''That's my car, that's my car!'' (Toyota Ad early 2000).
    Do we know if the car does not belong to the photographer having his beer? NO
    Does the colour of the car change the balance of colours in the photograph? NO
    Is this a commercial for Gull beer? NO
    Is this a nice picture? YES.

    Hello Rooby.
    First of all I would like to congratulate you for the level of engagement you have acquired from the lady who is posing for you, a model I suppose. Her glance comes out very strong, and that could be either by your direction or by the level of her professionalism.
    Secondly, about the actual picture itself as a frame I think it is a bit too tight on top and bottom, her head is too close to the top edge and the wrist she holds her hair with is too close to the bottom edge, a slightly more space would look better, so for your prime 50mm lens that means to go half a step back, or lean backwards from your waist level. You can notice I cropped the (tight) frame from her back. That is because I would like to keep out surfaces that reflect the light, as light in the wrong places can cause distraction. I reduced contrast and vignette and brought up shadows a bit. But your work in the most important area did not change despite the changes all around her. She has the bright sunlight on her face and she still looks with that theatrical glance.
    Well played!

    HI. Yes, very tasteful room and very tricky lighting conditions. I increased the exposure and the amount of light to make the wall in the middle look reaaaaally white and not grey. As a result the bright windows became brighter and the amount of detail was lost. But if you compare this by reducing the exposure, the wall will go grey and you will discover more nice decoration and plants in the balcony. But you have to question yourself, is this shot about the balcony and the decorations and the plants outside or is it for the room? I think it is the latter so I would go for increased exposure and light and a reaaaally white wall.

    Hi, very nice photo in the first place.
    Actually, I am amazed how the iPhone did not cope any better with the scene.
    All the bravo goes to you for framing and capturing it.
    I decided for a frame that reminds frames of 35mm cameras.
    Yes it is mono as, most of the picture is. I think it suits it.
    I have turned down sharpness a bit mimicking a haze effect.
    Apologies if I ruined the ''Angels' hair'' effect (sunrays). I think I can see it there but it is not prominent.
    Strive for accuracy of feelings in photography. Technical imperfection can be part of the game you use to play in life. Life has others games for you. And me. And everyone.

  • Farewell Barbara.
    My condolences to your family and your many friends for their sudden loss.
  • Cameras and software can make all photographers equal.
    Your work shows me that you are someone who photographs with their heart. Do never lose that.
    Our gaze can make our photographs special, our feelings can make them unique.
  • Beautiful images, properly taken. Angles, colours themes are well studied and presented. Applauds.

  • I came to notice Iain due to a skillful set of pictures he had taken, quite innovative, very clear as concepts, and excellently executed.
    The last characterises all of his portfolio, as his skill shine.
    Iain is a proof that it is much better for a photographer to stop worrying about the equipment and start focusing on knowing to put it in good use and also of how important the imagination is for turning the ordinary into spectacular.
  • Tactile, well seen and well shot pictures. Congratulations IgorKo!

  • I speak in a language which is not my own, with the conventions it has and it places on my opinion for Alda's work. I hope I shall be understood.

    Alda does not "take pictures" as a photographer. She "makes pictures" like a painter does. A painter has an idea, or a stimulus, and works with his/her tools to make it. I think Alda does the same but instead of brushes, she uses a camera. She portrays "inner thoughts" which she turns into images for other people to see. Not many people have that charisma and that doesn't mean any less for people who shoot more "formal" type of pictures.

  • I shall agree with Karl above, I came to know glenn's work through his kind advice. His work is a meticulous celebration of light, shapes and life. His shots are well thought, not just opportunistic or lucky, "Sans tÍte", "Joy ride" prove a photographer who is not only able to conceptualise a picture but is readily prepared to make it happen also. I wish you all the best Glenn, it is a pleasure and honour to have you here.
