Story of the day 31, 2008

Forget it all

I will title this picture ‘ A Photographer’s Expression’. Sometimes we shoot what we feel in our heard. I’ve seen some pictures where there were chances of shooting some joyous moments but the photographer captured gloomy pictures because his heart was in pain. Many times photographer’s emotions reflect through his photographs. I will suggest that keep yourself away from the scene and try to capture what it is. In this picture I can see the reflection of the photographer’s emotions very clearly. If you have tried to make a gloomy picture intentionally, then you have succeeded and the empty bed works the best in the picture.

Story of the day 30, 2008

An Endless Wait
Candida, it is an interesting shot and certainly goes with the title you have given. It reminds me of a classic I read in college, (don’t remember the title) but it was about highway and incidents that happen on the highway. Robbery, love affair and yes girls waiting for pick up. Why I mentioned this is because the impact of the image made me recall the story. Highway give you number of opportunities to shoot interesting photographs. You have also grabbed the opportunity and succeeded, this image is very well composed and conveys a message of endless wait. The subject placed in exact third makes it stronger.

Story of the day December 29, 2008

I appreciate your attempt. You had scopes to make it more interesting. But the selection of slow shutter speed makes the photograph very eye-catching. By shooting wider frame you could have been able to cover entire waterfall and it would have also left more space at the top which would have made the photograph complete. In current composition the natural frame of tree branches makes the photograph attractive. When you shoot at such place next, try to experiment with focal length and exposure to get the best result.

Story of the day December 26, 2008

The photograph tells a story it self. Little care while shooting would have added life to it. First of all, the audience is too dark and so are the performers. Slight details in the complete black area would have made it little more interesting. The photograph shows the spirit of the people present there. I will say that it is not the perfect moment; players at their peak of performance with listeners jumping on their toes would have made this photograph livelier. It is not easy to shoot hand held in this kind of situation, so be careful about exposure and hold you camera firmly.

Domestic violence can never breed discipline... It only breeds hatred and pain... Let children enjoy their childhood. Stop it now! I snapped this picture at the door of my room, just to give a message. I hope it is heard by you all!!!
