photoblog image Laidback


During the days of my photoshoots with my mates. Then I only used a 6MP camera, a 580EX Speedlite and a 18-50mm Sigma lens. At that time I had only my creativity to work with. I didn't know much about lighting, as a result I didn't know how to process this shot. Now with my current updated knowledge I went back to see some of my previous work and wow! what did I have then that I can't seem to find now in my shoots?

I think I'm too laid back!

There is a nice tension here. Waiting for someone. Nice shot.

I like this shot. I can give you a reason for that, nor do I love this shot either but I can see it hanging from my corridor walls

Very nice. The strong vertical lines in contrast to the horizontal format plus the line of his chin going away from the scene makes the shot for me.
