View Full Version : first time considering competiion

01-13-2012, 03:51 AM
Greg is getting such great feedback, I wanna play too!
This is the first time I'm even considering entering.
Is there anything here that would even be worth it?
I'm tough. Give it too me straight. I want to learn.
(Now hoping to link images correctly...)

Quick question...can you get this individual into the studio again?

01-13-2012, 04:40 PM
Jeff, yes, I can probably get him into my...um...living room again. Please continue!

the first one has potential, but you have a bunch of things to overcome, and it would be easier to reshoot it. IMHO. THe shadow is funy on his face. It is blocked by the sax, so the sax needs to move towards the bg a bit and you will get great light on his face. You also need to have a touch of light in the center of the bg so you get some seperation. You also might play around a bit with the way he is holding it. I think you could certainly get close to a merit image.

Yep. a reshoot would be fun to try and do it right. I might actually do it sometime. The playing shot was deemed strongest of these three. In the meantime, since I can only have one of Anthony anyway, I found a different version of the 'sax on shoulder' image that actually has front light so he has light in his eyes. With some tips from Keith and some digging for three more images I guess I'll have a full case to toss out to the judges at the local conference next week. Jeff, thanks for commenting. (I won't be giving up my day job!)

...any relation to Cary Garrison from Edmond, OK ???

Rick, not that I know of. Not related to Kerry Garrison the photog/podcast guy either. :)

I agree that a reshoot is a good idea but it's not because they're all bad. It's because you've got some serious potential with this concept. If you get the lighting right I think you'll end up with some really good impact, the toughest element to achieve in my opinion.

Thanks Greg, that was nicely put. :) I appreciate the comment. Sadly no time to reshoot before the conference next week so I'm going with plan B. Images to come shortly.
