Re: An industrial Evening. (photography)

I swear to god that I was going to critique your photos, and god damn it i'm doing it now.

Actually never mind, there's nothing to critique, they all suck.


This one is marginally better than the others.
PROBLEMS: Half your image is empty space, because you underexposed the scene, only exposing for the clouds. While that's cool and all for showing off the power cables, besides having some rule of thirds in it, it's a boring image.
3/10

And oh god... Please don't tell me that's motion blur.


QUICK NOTES: Taking blurry/out of focus pictures of UNINTERESTING subjects is bad photography. In my opinion, there is scarcely any worthwhile pictures.

EDIT #2: I noticed you have flickr. I can add you, if you want.

Ahaha that is actually my least favourite. The new stlye of photography i went for this time is so that it looks out of the normal and does not fit with the normal photography rules. This causes the 'second glance' that i am after because it makes the viewer think "thats not right" as you did and that is what im after. the style i went for is unusual and thus has a limited amount of viewers that actually enjoy them as they aren't the usual style and actually make you think. Its simply the style of photography i like. As for the 'camera shake' not motion blur as it isnt a film, but the camera shake is due to teh fact it was raining hard and i had one shot at this and just went for it. I also did not notice the camera shake so cheers for pointing it out.

Edit: yh add me if ya want.

Re: An industrial Evening. (photography)

The fact of the matter is, there is no interesting subject. Even those "limited" amount of viewers will still scratch their heads and say, "gee, what am I looking at?"

And photography does not have rules, they have guidelines. And these guidelines improve pictures. You tell me what's your favourite picture of the bunch, and I will argue against it.

Photography has guidelines that I break, I swap the focus point onto a different place that would not be oviously picked. I increase the shadowing to give the leaves or bars or whatever is in the image more of an outline. Photography has these guidelines and i dont follow them as that is the sort of photography i prefer, something that ignores the guidelines or rules, something different.

My faves are:

or

The second one i like as i have taken the change of focus away from normal guidelines totally.

DEAR GOD YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS.

First picture: I dislike THOROUGHLY, moreso than the others. Because there is no depth. Take this picture out of context, you'll have no clue what you're looking at. You're focused on the mossy concrete, and some shrubbery. The metal rising up towards the camera is OOF, and leaves little to the imagination as to what it could be. Awkward perspective, awkward composition.

The second one...later. I'm tired.

Ahh, but you looked back at it to see what was wrong with it... The metal is supposed to be out of focus... The perspective and the composition are both supposed to be awkward. There is not meant to be a clear subject in it. It is meant to make you think, to make you remove it from context, to make you take that second glance and study it. Also, if you think it leaves nothing to the imagination, what do you think the metal is from???

Re: An industrial Evening. (photography)

I like them.. But they do all seem a little.. I don't know, pointless. And yeah I know that's the idea you were trying to get - out of the ordinary. But I'm not sure if it works :P Still, I admire your passion, for wanted to do things differently.

If you want to do things wrong, you still need to do it right xD

---------- Post added at 10:30 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:25 AM ----------

I agree with previous comments though: You NEED more interesting subjects, at least for some of your photos, like bigger, more impressive industry buildings if that's your style. Something that makes you think 'Wow'. Not simply some telephone cables or a wire fence. Although I'm sure there's a purpose you chose those things, but you need to show it in the photos more :P You should try taking pictures of animals and nature - and with colour! The world is full of beautiful colour you can capture ;D

Derp obviously they weren't as dark before. The fact you edited them darker doesn't mean it makes them better.

But the photo's just dont seem good lol

Some coloured Nature-y ones are on my flikr account @ Flickr: Charlielapage's Photostream

I personally prefer Black and white though. Its also pretty hard to take photos of big industrial buildings when i live in the countryside, I work with what i have, and what i have is rusty fences, pylons and thats about it... thus, i blow them up and make them look like something more important.

Can't you at least get stuff in focus or more interesting subjects? that would improve it a lot.

Re: An industrial Evening. (photography)

these photos suck shit.

And you don't even bother taking criticism/critique, which is very low of a photographer, regardless of ability. Ask any real photographer, and they'll say the same thing.

So go ahead, continue taking shitty photographs, while I make money off selling my prints.
