    Le Rant: Why Strobe Sault by Klips is a great photo

    So,

    Welcome to the one of my first rants on the photo phorum. This is strongly related to the fact that Klips has just put out some awesome photos,. Stop by to enjoy and give a crit.
    I just wanted to point out that one of them, is simply brilliant and i strongly feel we can all learn a bit from the Alphatoros and his breath taking example of dynamic photo : Strobe Sault
    Now, what i've done is that i've taken the photo and modified it a bit, flipped and desaturated it, just to make my point and make the goodies in the photo even more obvious.

    Dynamic lines
    We all know that lines give the balancing of a photo. In this case, the lights on the ceiling are diagonally positioned in the photo to give it speed and direction.

    The fact that the character is positioned towards the end of the lines defined by the lights give a major plus. The eye is led right into the great pose.


    Posing
    Now, Klips, i know you where not exactly posing in there, but, what the heck, it's still a pose. Which is unusual and again very dynamic. Also, giving the impresion that you are looking in the camera is, again, a plus.

    The fact that the body is not parallel, and somehow, does not fit perfectly in the parallelism of the leading lines, give the bit of unusualness that this photo needs.

    Negative Space

    There is a lot of it in it. Good use of lighting in here, gives the eye time to rest and enjoy the photo while browsing it.


    ----


    Bottom line: a great photo. Thank you very much!

    Yay, negative space!

    Yes, we all know your deep love of negative space (for example in the source of your avatar!). I agree with Gab, that is an awesome example of a great photo... if only I could get myself off the habit of always putting the subject in the centre of the image; I always feel as though I'm too simplistic to not be looking directly at the subject.

    Question/Suggestion...
    Can we post pictures that we want like...really critiqued here? And get them intensely critiqued? Cause...no one that I know really knows how to do that for me And the people that do don't.

    That gives me an idea for a thread. "In depth critique thread". One person posts a pic which is then reviewed and critiqued in depth. Anyone who makes a critique is then allowed to post a pic to get critiqued by the next person and so on.
    With the amount of work in peoples threads in depth critiques are not so common although some people do them (Mr Mu, Le Gab, Purplerose sometimes takes the time). I think it would be a good way for everyone to learn, and great to have it all in one place. What do y'all think?

    I like this idea, and there has to be a few rules to really make it work:

    you can only post a photo AFTER you have critiqued someone
    you have to give at LEAST one critique per photo you post in the thread, preferably more
    you have to give a full critique to qualify for 'posting status', as it were. One liners don't count.

    I think since this is Gentile's idea she (he says, hoping he has the gender right. If not, very sorry!) should go first.
    Edit: wait, you and morbid can fight it out, as it seems a collaborative idea.

    I made a thread for it before I read your reply Klips. Please tell me what you think about the rules. I think maybe my rules will discriminate less experienced photographers because they might not be able to give as good critique, but Im not sure how to make them better.
