All those images are old, but I'd like to get some serious feedback. Afair I was using a 400D with the default Kit-objektive. For some of the colored-ones I had a 50mm f1.4 lense.
Shooting them was fun. Will do some more of them soon (sadly with a crappy lense... 18-200mm... I would prefer a fixed focal lenght (50mm ofc).. )
well, tell me what you think!

Next up: Event-photography from a skating-contest. yay.

Crappy lens or not, you've been able to capture every pore, wrinkle and fiber
of these individuals. I particularly like this type of treatment and I don't see it enough!
Thank You, E

I never really get photos because I am clocking stuff all the time and I thinks what the big deal -what the photographer bringing to the picture is a mechanical moment in time and maybe a tad more but I cant tell one photgraphers work from another unless he is imposing a gimmick and the tenuous attachment/jealousy they guard their snaps is derisory and often beneath contempt.

So having slagged snappers off the same aesthetic rules apply which I am too bored to go into
I hope you asked permission of your subjects – Im dying of boredom here. Sorry to be negative.

A great selection of well photographed expressions and characters.

Well done.

God bless.
