colored lights threw me off more than i thought. i LOVE the lighting.. just curious to see what others might come up with. if my photos arent to your standards im sorry, but just pass up the post, dont comment on that fact. ive only been taking pictures for a few months as a hobby, with no education whatsoever. and im only 20 so i have lots of room to grow.



e-10. middle of a COLD night. i used stage lights from a concert earlier that night, one magenta one blue. magenta towards the left, blue on the right. p.s. crop if you want to. COPYRIGHT tim carson

It's cool to see someone young getting into photography and actually getting out there and shooting... congrats!!

Here's a few thoughts and a "re-edit"... hope you don't mind. I'll be happy to pull it if you wish.

The thoughts (and please, don't take these as gospel, only as words of encouragement from another developing photographer):
I'm not sure what equipment you are shooting with, but I see here (and with a previous post) what appears to be too slow a shutter speed for hand-holding. Did you hand-hold or use a tripod?

A general rule for hand-holding a camera without flash is that "1-over-focal length" is as slow as you should go before using a tripod... in other words, with a 50mm lens, you should keep shutter speeds to 1/50th of a second and faster. Any slower and images will probably not be as sharp as needed. There are some pros that are good enough to shoot well below this general rule. Not me, though!

One of the things your photos are lacking is sharpness, probably due to camera shake in low lights. So, a faster lens may be in order. I don't think they are lacking vision, however. The vision you seem to have for your photos (I've only seen two, of course so I may be way off) seems to me to be one of extremes... whether they be in color, setting, tone, texture, whatever....

I think taking advantage of those "themes" would do you well. First, though, work on camera technique and your visions will come around much more easily. As for this example, color seems to be the theme so I edited the photo to really saturate the colors on the model's shadow, as well as the vignette of shadow around the edge of the photo. The girl seems to be the palette for the light, so I made her features less identifiable.

... of course, I may be totally off base here, but here it is:


Cheer,
Shelby

i do like what youve done with the photo.

thanks for the advice, i only do handheld, as i like to move around and get fun angles. im using an olympus E-10.. so new lenses for it isnt possible. I've just got to learn to work with what ive got (ive flipped through the manual once maybe). but i will keep that rule in mind. thanks much for the advice!!!!

Hey! Another fun picture from you! lol hahaah well I didn't do much..I just basically tweaked it so that the light was blue instead of green. Lol hahahah did other tiny changes but nothing much. I'm in my 20's too! I'm 24! My older brother is a photographer so he taught me how to shoot pictures and process my own pictures in our own dark room when I was 16 so I guess I have a head start on photography. But good luck and show us more of your stuff!

Jen
