Self-Portrait....post no.218.

THERE IS LOW-KEY LIGHTING, NORMAL (AS U SEE IN PHOTOS) AND HIGH-KEY LIGHTING....Here I used low-key lightin in this profile portrait....The light was on spot-light from side-back, so I cud get the outlines of my face structure.....
-----Whether u use a compact or DSLR, YOU MUST KNOW EACH MODE.....here the light was coming from back and affecting the lens of the camera, I covered with a black sheet held by my left hand.Thus, u will know that u are not wasting much of ur time and losing control on lighting.
-----Look at the expressions, as you are ur own master here....However, there is no restriction....u can use as many emotions as u can and finalize the best ones.....Some  homework can be done on your computer or mobile with online photoshop facilities to make it a choice of ur portrait......Keep some space in front as u can set ur eyes with some space in the frame, not juxtapositioning the face with frame......YOU can take help of friends or ur spouse, in case u cannot handle in a single mood....this will help a lot to get the result what u want without any tension.
-----Reg. backgrounds......in low-key pix the background tend to be darker while as opposite in high-key pix, the bg is shown to be white with subject in the same tone................just try.

Self-portraiting....post no.217.

EXPRESSIONS, EMOTIONS, BODY LANGUAGE, SENSUALITY (BETTER FOR FEMALES OR YOUNG GUYS), MOODS AND MOMENTS, BESIDES IMPORTANTLY IN ORIGINAL TONES OR IN HIGH KEY OR LOW KEY TONES...... like the above portrait taken in low key mood, using spot light and at left of the face a little bit filling by the side wall....It can be self-satisfying or can be used in magazines or exhibitions, as it fulfil the norms of an artistic presentation.....this type of portrait is best taken indoors, since the light is in ur control.....Outdoors also in winter, the sun is soft and u can use the light to good effect.

Balloonwala on the street,caught in action (post no.216)

....................................................click to enlarge.(Balloonwallah on street)
..........THE TITLE I put here ''balloonwallah on street''....now as u are learning photography. Here I used zoom lens to strengthen contrast between dark (on his face) and the balloons.....I think, what I got is well executed.....see the trumpeteer and the balloons.Next is position of the person. He is at balance with the object he is carrying, that is the reason, I put him at the one side and  balancing with the more attractive balloons. Thus I get a complete picture.
          
         Generally I use Aperture priority setting on my camera, that is helpful to me to read the subject and accordingly set the shutter speed....Sometimes because of low light, the shutter speed gets show, inviting shake of the picture, then I increase the aperture to let the correct light in, exposing the photo perfectly. Here meter reading is important that is built in your camera. In the beginning, u may run slow but as u are conversant with the settings, u will run, paying more attention to the photograph............................

sunset, to its extremes--I mean size.of sun..post no.

..IT IS CALLED SKYSCAPE FRAMING USING NATURE-MADE features-
I put it in the frame and it gives unique view......naturally also we keep the sun below near the skyline.....sun at so low, still the frame is looking well balanced. The balance is the middle open space and a single crow coming a long way.....I did not want clash between the crow and the sun........so kept the crow lowest possible tone, when a viewer critically looks the picture in an exhibition or a magazine.....closure in magazine....with distance in an art show rendering a beautifully compositional look.

A portrait in low key.(post no.213)

A good face, having light from back in a verandah.....I wanted to catch highlights of his glass, nose, right temple and today's trend of having beard by the young boys.......Besides being all, I felt his face with a piece of smile worth photographing....the bg though slightly distracting is support to the photograph....as though it is a park scene, yes as it is. just look long distance background......his shirt does not attract from his face that is a plus point.///////////////////Regarding posture 3/4th as usual in making a picture....the pic is in low-key tone, the highlights make good contours.

CHILDREN'S CARNIVAL---JUST ENJOY.(post no211

Vising Charnival is a joy and relief from the rush and noises of long car Qs, the dust, foul smell outside......This We felt when we entered the big ground full of children riding horses, camels, and various items with baloons to swings, riding on plastic horses....I felt I came to a wonderland
where there are lot of eatables in different stalls......just mouthwatering.....the teacher were bust in looking afters the arrangements going on smoothly.
What Madam, the items are finished....the people had to obey their tinytots. for Idli, dosa,samosas,chats etc. Patents,as I observed were carefree too to fulfil the demands of children.
There were elders too, came on the wishes of their grand children, and do u imagine the happiness of the good old person. I think cannot be expressed in words.......good luck...more to come
