Re: Sole Trade
Hi Robert, 91 views and no comments. How depressing.
So let's start the ball rolling.
Interesting picture, contradictory subject. A menial worker, sitting in his office (the footpath) and looking a bit untidy. And next to him in total contrast a bright shiny motorbike. Almost a disconcerting effect. Did you plan it that way ?
Picturewise, it looks like you're having exposure problems. Highlights are clipped and blacks are crushed. Not only this pic but other Guatemalan ones too. Could be very harsh midday lighting in Guatemala. You could try photographing earlier or later in the day, or if you want to rescue this pic and other similar ones, then you could try a bit of pseudo-HDR from your RAW file. I'm assuming you're shooting RAW + JPEG routinely, doesn't everyone ??
Enough for now.
Keep on with the pics too.
PS I like the starkness of your lighthouse pic, from 3 Dec.
