Today, a few more pictures for you for the recent walkarounds.
You know how I always talk about story telling? One way to do it, one I have mentioned many times before, is to have a blurry subject in the background and to hence make the viewer work out what is happening. Having to work it out adds to a photo’s interest. In this picture, “Door” and “Leaving” are of course connected. And you see the rule of thirds being applied, I prusume?
I am called The Speedlighter. Speedlights are often handy, like in this picture.
I underexposed the background by two stops or more. And to get the background blurry, I took this at f/4. This needed 1/4000th second if I recall correctly. That is beyond the flash sync speed, so I had to use High-Speed flash (FP Flash). Nice result, no? Looks surreal, and that is what you get by combining depth of field control with light control.
Last one. Use unusual effects.
Like smoke from a barbecue to get an unusual picture of a familiar sight.
As always, photos look best when viewed full size.
Now: time for you to take the lens cap off, if you even use one, and go shoot!
