Hi, I'm relatively new here. I've been taking photographs for about two years. I now use a Nikon F80, which I got last june. Uh.. I take mainly nature photographs, but recently I've been trying my hand at portraiture. Here are some from my most recent roll (Fuji Reala 100):
Slightly older (Kodak T-max 3200):
Also, I've been experimenting with multiple exposures lately. Here are some:
hey your pretty good at portraitures. i like the last on in the first post. i also like the rocks and tiny flower.
id like to see some crazy PS manipulations with some of these portraitures.
im really into that stuff.
you've definately placed the pictures in order of my favorite to least favorite. Your portrait work is great, but what captures me about the first two are the quality of light and color... very cool (colorwise) and yet the first pose is a bit warm in the sense of her facial expression. The second one is perhaps my favorite from an interpretive sense. I can't say that i'm much for your dual-exposure stuff, i think it needs to look more intentional and while the leaf is obviously, it's just not striking enough and looks either contrived or perhaps washed out, i can't decide why...
Your best nature one is definately the daisy (right?) due to the detail and contrast, it's definately growing on me as i type, however perhaps needs more color to it, or look deliberately darker.
PS in my thread you asked what camera i use... It's a Canon Powershot A60 (3.2 Megapixels) and has shutter speed and aperature manual settings which i've been craving ever since i got into digital photography. It's no Digital SLR but it's great for what i need it for, hopefully someday down the line i'll get an uberPixel Digi and my lightpainting photos wont look so damn grainy
this is my favorite
i like these alot, some nice color to them, good control over contrast and color balance
i'm not too into the multiple exposure portraiture. to me usually even if a portrait is abstract i like to see focus on the eyes or eyelashes area, just gives a very real feel to it. i think it's just b/c the blur aroung the face, maybe next time move the body instead? not really sure, but that's really all i don't like
once again nice post man, hopefully more soon
Thanks for the comments everyone
injection : I'm glad you like it Yeah, I thought the fact that one eye was blurred out more than the other was a little weird, I'll try to avoid that next time.
Gregory : Thanks Hehe, I've just started taking multiple exposures, and I got a real shock when I saw how some of them came out (these are the better ones, so you can imagine). But I think I now have some idea of what to do and what not to do.
PS. You really do a lot with your A60 man! I used to use a Canon G2, but now it seems to have some kind of focusing problem, so I don't use it much.
modern : Thank you. Yeah I should really get around to those when I have the time. It's been a while since I did one.
