Seven Today


Posted on Wed 26th Apr, 2006, 3:18pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/160, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, Focal length: 100mm,
Captured: 24th April 2006, 1:56pm,

This was one of those great little encounters where I didn't even have to try. Phil spotted my camera as I walked past and instantly asked what I was taking photos of. We got chatting and I asked if I could take a couple of photos of him and he was great about it, even asking me where I wanted him to stand.

As for the background, I'd walked past that wall loads of times before and thought it'd work quite well for a portrait. I think it would look better sharper but it was cloudy and my depth of field was limited.

Overall, this has come out as quite a straight photo, even though I spent a while processing it. Oh, and you can also see Phil as a hair model on this site.

Nice shot, great color, detail, and choice of background. Also, first time visiting your site and I must say, it is very nice. I really dig the layout.

Everything works well here, the chap and the background. Lovely detail and composition.

A lovely shot - the hair looks fantastic...

the annual pikey funfair is in town at addington park - so go get picture taking foo!

I really think the colours work well together on this shot. You couldn't have dressed the guy much better. And as Harry says, the hair looks great.

Jamey, Wed 26th Apr, 2006, 9:53pm
Cheers. Yeah the colours do work quite well. and they match VFXY's background rather nicely too :)

I'm really loving your recent portrait shots, and your courage, something which I've had difficulty doing.

Good tight image with a nice background.

Nice shot and everything, but hair model? Has the world gone quite mad?

Jamey, Thu 27th Apr, 2006, 10:58am
Heh. Yeah, it's a niche market. I'm not sure it was his full-time occupation.

I know what you mean about the background lacking sharpness! guess you need a decent flash! Great shot tho, he has pretty intense eyes and facial expressions which would work great with a tighter crop

I do tend to carry the flash (plus wireless remote) around with me but I didn't have it that day. And it prob wouldn'tve occurred to me to use it if I had it. Holding the 20D with the 100mm lens in one hand's not the simplest of things. Good exercise though :)

don't use a flash in this case. the lighting is just right. good job.
