Untitled #23

Camera Man

Posted on Sat 2nd Sep, 2006, 4:03pm

ISO: 400, Shutter speed: 1/25, Aperture: f/1.4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 27th August 2006, 8:20pm,

This is the first of my shots from the Notting Hill Carnival, last weekend. I've only got four that I think are worth posting and I'll put the next three up over the coming days.

I'm in two minds whether to add this to my portfolio because while I'm really happy with the way the full-size picture looks, I think the thumbnail just looks pretty nothing-y (excuse the made-up word). Opinions most welcome.

I really like this one Jamey. I couldn't get a shot like this as I was actually part of the carnival press team for the Paraiso float.

Very well done Jamey. If it were not for the "slight" blur on the man on the right's hands I would say perfect. It just seems odd that almost everyone is blurry but the two men up front are not ... except those hands. I sure hope that made sense. I only even got that picky because you mentioned putting it in your portfolio. I do want you to know I think it is a great image.

I think the static-ness (!!) of the two central figures is nicely balanced by the blur and expression of the central figure. Lots of reds and oranges although there's a slight light leakage or something on the right - is that another person? I wonder if the guy talking to the cam is famous? The central peep might think so. The cameraman reminds me of Sonic:p

Yeh the movement on the main focal point mans hands is a bit distracting as is the red cast on the right hand side from something or someone. But you can't help the guy moving his hands can you. Good shot though with a real sense of being there with all the movement going on.

Very active shot, lots of stuff happening throughout the scene. My first impression was that this man being interviewed is a bum or something. (no offense) In my opinion the slightly blurred and darkened edge goes well with the shot.

The red blur on the right is someon It would've been easy to crop it but I thought it added to the photo.e else about to walk into the frame. It would've been easy to crop it but I liked it. Never actually noticed the blur on the hands until it was mentioned. Funny how everyone takes what they want from an image and leaves the rest.

It's a fantastic photo and you should put it inmediately in your portfolio. Never mind the thumbnail. I just have revisited your portfolio and I am amazed of your talent.

The impact of the fullsize image far outways the thumbnail. This is excellent. Love the paralax layers of passersby

A real cracker of a shot, lovely belnd of action and stillness - a surreal effect. I think that blurr on the right looks like lens flare though, worth getting rid of that.

Cheers all. After all that I'm still not sure about putting it in the portfolio :)

Having dropped a week behind in my commenting I'm just picking out a few that I really feel strongly about. I've noticed your best shots usually look like they were shot in a studio. This is one of them. Superb.
