p.1 #1 · Trout Fishing (B&W)


Out fishing with my father in New Zealand. 'Bush Bashing' to get to the best spots. We caught weeds and lost lures. Leica M8 and 50 Lux ASPH:

These are really well done.

They are too large to see them without scrolling, however.

Howdy,

First...my standard intro to anyone "new" to me on this forum...
My comments or suggestions below are not a criticism of you, your model, your talent or skill. I offer them in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help you with a second POV and set of eyes. If you read sincere questions and simple suggestions as "criticism" of you, then you will miss how I am trying to help you.

Of course this may be your own "style" or your own "vision" and I suppose we can assume that the images look just like they do because that is exactly how you like them. That is OK too. It just shows that there are differences of "opinion" on what looks good. IF these are exactly what you want and like, then by all means continue making your images look like that and have fun doing it. I can only speak for myself and what I do or do not find appealing in the posted photos. As I always say: "Follow your own muse."
_______________________

Thanks for posting the photo here. I enjoy looking at photos and it seems like there are fewer posted now on this forum. So, don't let my comments below discourage you from posting.

I have also enjoyed trout fishing (with flies) in a chilly mountain stream. So I like the subject.

About the photos you posted:

I would prefer to see more water, more DOF, and more of the rod in action of fishing.

Assuming you had only the 50mm lens with you, I suggest the following for next time:

1. Rotate camera to horizontal to give a wider image frame

2. Back up a few paces so more of the scene and rod action can be included in the frame

3. use a smaller aperture to give more DOF so the water is in focus too.

I hope these comments help you.

Nice shots and nice tones. Would mean much more to me if these images were at least accompanied by wide shots that reveal the much broader context. In the same way, including in this series even tighter shots: face, hands, fishing reel - would all be great but only take on meaning once the viewer understands context. My opinion only, of course.

Very nice work.

I love these. Sorry to sound like a broken record, but it was my first thought when I got to the end as well - that I wish there was one really wide shot showing the whole environment. The last shot would be perfect for it, since he's already facing away, getting the setting that's in front of him, would be really cool.

your images create a nice little story line. The sequence is great. Maybe post the colored version and see if they create a different impact than the bnw ones create

Thank you all for the comments!

I think they are very constructive and quite right
One shot with more context and real estate to set the scene, and potentially a different close up shot would have worked well. I was limited by the flora at the time, and only had the 50mm, so the context shots would have required a lot of scrambling or wading...

Thanks all.
