p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Bowling - Long


I'm not much of a bowler, but some friends and I went out last night. I came in dead last, 79 points. Yup, 79.

Here was our evening - I know this format doesn't lend itself to critique, but I'm always open to it, anway.

too many really good ones to pick a favorite.

what i find most impressive is how you handled the AWFUL lighting of a bowling alley. not so much for shooting higher ISOs, but more about finding a great white balance. i'd just convert it all to BW!

nice work man!

Fun!! Yeah, if this wasn't for a client I'd just throw in the towel with color...

12 is awesome. Her expression is priceless.

The little jiggly dance in 13 is also perfect.

4. The last two are great, and I didn't notice the little dancing girl until further inspection. Great layering!!

you mean, the kid in the Batman shirt beat you? Thank goodness you're such a good photographer!

Sweet series, thanks for sharing! Too many faves to select just one, you did not post too many pics, not when they're this good.

Thank you very much for all the kind words.

Yeah the lighting wasn't great, but not *too* bad. It was pretty yellowish in the area where you sit, then much whiter and brighter over the lanes. But the WB adjustments were fairly easy to make in LR. I actually think I take longer for BW, because I'm just never quite happy with my conversions and spend more time on them.

Heh heh Ron, naw, I didn't count the scores of the little kids, at least I beat them. Their highest was a 52.

David.. Awesome! It looks like it wasnt that busy. Next time maybe ask the manager if you can stand between the 2 lanes to get a different perspective.

Thanks Robin, That's a great idea. I really wanted a head on shot, but I didn't even think to ask permission to do it.

I would never have expected to see such great stuff from a "simple" bowling session

Good FPJ here. Bowling seems to be a cyclical sports/entertainment activity that is really down in participation around here.

Thank you sir, you bring up a really good point and is actually something I've had in the back of my mind for a long time, but have never really done anything about. While I do enjoy doing these long stories that make up a whole set, I totally get how if you take any one of these out by themselves it wouldn't really tell the whole story in a cool way. I'd love to have the ability to see and compose a single frame or two that would tell the whole story and do so in an artistic way. Always something to work on, right?
