Title: [Theme] Be brave. Shoot 'em in the back!
Post by: the solitaire on May 05, 2016, 12:00:54
Most of the time, when taking a photograph of a person, a group of persons or an animal the photographer does his best to capture the face of said subject. Sometimes the brave decision would be to do the exact opposite. Having someone look out of a picture gives an interesting sense of direction to the resulting photograph.

I will try to post some examples to show what I try to get at here, but what I really hope for is to see work from you, showing how you use this to your advantage

Example 1, follow the leading lines which lead to the setting sun

Example 2, close up and just looking out of the frame

Examples 3 and 4, following a path leading away from you

Example 5, silhouettes

Example 6, anything goes really

Thank you Francis and golunvolo for joining in the fun. Both images fit in the theme perfectly :) How the ... did you catch that hare legging it like that!

Golunvolo, I really like the mood in your musician shot. Well seen and good use of negative space too

This image is the good example that the TC-16A works perfectly with my Df attached with the 300mm f/4.5 ED (non IF).

The only drawback consist to do a ''pre-focus'' as the optical system can only move few millimeters inside the TC. When you shoot, the TC makes the focus finer, so you can get AF with any compatible manuel lenses. :)

Note that the image was cropped.

Francis.

   Thanks. It is by lack of post skills that you can not appreciate the shadow in the blue wall. It is another woman with a cello as well, duplicating the image. Oh, well...I should try harder :)


  Andreas, that image make me sad. Nature walking away, giving us her back.
   I agree about the light in the first shot.

Not so brave, she is my friend's (the Artist) assistant and she is running to tell him something as he exits , stage right with his Canon  ;).  I do have shots of her coming towards me also  :)

The artist exits the stage leaving this excelllent photo op unused, but it would have never happened had he not gone. An interesting photo, interesting background as to what happens and the question remains, is it better to  be the artist or is it better to observe the events taking place because of the artists' presence (and his leaving)?

Buddy, I never really shoot the Installations so for me it is everything else going on.  That is what he wants me to do  :) .

 I was surprised that he actually had another professional Photog there.  He normally prints huge, and sells, also does a book of the Installation.  I'm really a Sports , action, shooter so see a pretty girl running and I just shoot  ;) .

No, I cropped it a bit for a better framing, this is the 200mm f/2.0 Ai.            Very good narrative suggestion.  Does remind me I should visit the City-beach here ;)

An addition from me.

Taken with my Nikon D3 and 28mm f3,5 PC lens, slightly shifted. Th emeeting between dog (Lumi) and crow went very controlled and unpredictable. The crow wa snot really impressed and Lumi not really interested in chasing birds so when the crow finally decended I had plenty of time to set up for this shot.

Didn't know there were so many proficient back-stabbing (photographically speaking) photographers on this site ! The tile too is just too hard to resists.

#1 seems to have been done before

#2 is just a bunch of beach bums

#3 is a slight variation on our current theme. Mongo calls it "shoot'em with the back"  (sorry, Mongo is weak and could not resist this one)

Perfect composition and timing Les! Even though, at the time that painting was made, the ladies on the bench would have been excluded of taking part in the depicted meeting, they now visually close the circle left unfinished by the painter.

Shooting photographers in the back is an act of cowardice though ;)

Thank you - but to my eye there is a compositional flaw: the ladies on the left are all dark and those on the right are all light, and it would be better to mix the light and dark ladies, or, better still have them all dark.

Ah, did not recognise that. LOL.  No, he was rather sportive, almost running with his little pet (it is carrying a tennis ball in its mouth, but that picture was not so good)

Sumo wrestler (literally for the bump).

One of my bucket list items is to go to Japan, eat dinner at Aki Sushi, go to a Sumo match and do some night photography on the Ginza (please excuse any misspellings). Do they permit cameras at the sumo matches?

Arthur, sorry for my belated reply.  I guess that taking pictures is allowed at the sumo matches.

I'm not familiar with Aki Sushi (apparently a Sushi Bar in New Jersey?), but could inform you of good sushi restaurant.

If you are to go to sumo matches, you should be aware that the official sumo matches take place only in odd months and in different cities according to the month.

The first to be allowed to go outside in Spain have been children up to 13 years old. They are having a blast with the streets and nature for themselves. From my window.

Sorry for re-posting, but this one belongs in this thread... I was not brave though : the 300 PF did the social distanciation job.
