A quick view of steve_kershaw's recent activity.

  • The Lake District

    a much tighter crop will make this image work better, the foreground left/right/bottom is dominating the shot, take
    10% off the left
    10% off the top
    30% off the right
    20% off the bottom
    and you get a much more balanced shot

    I have you set as a favored tog so i get emails all the time because you love to take photos, with your flash work I can normally work out quite quickly your arrangement, but i have to say this one is more difficult,

    Lighting the face has made the shot, but the black light absorbing jumper has made it difficult to work out your arrangement, the shadow on the chin, highlighted cheek and statue shows a medium height camera right, but his right hand and cheek,neck indicate your classic cross lighting, please tell
    The black and white makes this shot, maybe a portrait crop will focus the eye on the subject better (but what do i know)

    again good lighting, the front right is a bit softer have you got a box on this? I like the soft light, not to soft that you loose the contrast you need on his muscles, yet soft enough to make this a good recognisable portrate,
    The rear left works well to give definition from the grass and the highlight it creates along the body defines the shape of the body better, being slightly blown adds to the effect (don't you just hate togs who think blown highlights ruin a shot?)
    people may think that its easy when you have a body like his to work with, but its not and your series of shots show a mastery with off camera flash,
    well done and keep up the good work

  • Boxing Set

    I have always liked the black and white gritty boxing shots, it was this look i was trying to replicate,
    in photography we always strive to get pin sharp shots so it was strange intentionally making the shots slow, some worked well some didn't, the grain in the shot has been added in lightroom

    thx for the comment

    The highlights are supposed to be blown, this is the point of the shot, this is supposed to be an arty shot, the slower shutter speed is intentional and I added the noise in post, it was my intention to introduce attitude to the shot,
