I've been waiting for this :thumbsup:
I am going to sticky this here and in the non-srt show offs.
Can you critique these two photo's Parkerman:
(these are not edited)
oh, and is this a critique thread??
i love photography.. but i am still a noob with it though.. picked up a T1i with a 18-55 lense.. still learnin..
When I first started I always forgot about the windows. It took a while to make it a part of the routine because of how easy it is to forget before you get out of the car and start snapping pics.I've always thought that if you're taking the time to do a photoshoot of your car, take the time to roll all the windows up. Unless you have a really good reason, they shouldn't be down.
Packerman...while I think what you are trying to do is cool I think you should state your sources for your post. I am not one to piss on anothers parade, however I have been in photography since I was in highschool and taught it for several years.
One thing to understand is not all rules apply as your subject matter can require different elements to create a perfect picture.
A very important element you left out was how important contrast plays in pictures especially in black and white images. While your background was very nice in your picture your subject blended in with the background causing the two to blur and cause the viewer to loose focus.
Good luck helping the newbs
If your subject is dark and your background is dark it blends together. Think of a black guy in a movie theatre, who has his eyes closed and isnt smilling.The source is myself speaking from experience and from seeing what other people have been doing wrong.
I can honestly say... You lost me on the bolded part.
