Yes, the photos are too large. However, the gratuitous comments about whether the photographer pushed himself belie the nature of the photos themselves. They portray moments of genuine emotion and are lovely in themselves. Does one have to be challenged or bring out a bag of tricks to receive the all-too-common "these are sick, dude" comments from this forum? He was sharing five photos from, I assume, a much larger set. Why such a negative response?
did you read ... these are "sick" - dude.,,,
So posting images in front of other shooters.....
Lets get down to business. As Jim mentions, one fly's to Mexico to just shoot average but semi solid image?
Really.... then maybe you need to step out of this place.
Did you push yourself? If you do not grasp this ... then - to ME ... you wasted a payed (assuming) opportunity to have a chance to extend your "tool box" abilities.
What do i mean by tool box? We all go into shoots taking the given situation and our techniques or shooting style.
The different tricks or "my shots" (lots of narrow depth of field, super wide, various camera angles, how we see, use of flash) are our different tools.
What do you do to add tools in your shooting tool box?
Here is an opportunity to push your self creatively. A opportunity to add to the tool box. A chance to get better.
one more time ... a chance to get better.
It does not matter if you are a noob or 10 years + in this industry. If you are not going forward.... you will be left behind.
So, did the Op push him or herself? If the Op was stoked to get these images - cool.
My question is then, what will the Op do the next time?
