I was taking photos of my daughter in her dance costumes. This one was a fluke taken while i was testing the light etc..... but turned out to be my favourtie picture of the day
Subject of photo
Composition & Perspective
Color & Lighting
Depth of field
First impression was awesome and then the second time I looked at it I looked at it in detail. When we do it as a fluke that means you followed the light and you keep shooting.
Everything about this is image is right on the money. It brings me into her and what she is feeling. It's soft and yet the black and white is perfect.
Normally when we do flukes as you call it, we keep on shooting no matter what and we play with light. See how it falls on the subject.
Softness is perfect and well done.
It's the perfect DOF and well done
I always look at the image at least twice and let it pull me in. Job well done BRAVO
How to improve your photo
How do I tell you to improve it? Maybe at a hint of flash bounce off the ceiling or just diffused
Maybe shoot from a different angle I would liked to see her feet if she was putting on shoes.
Maybe using a different aperture instead of F5.6 maybe F8.0 or for really soft image F2.8 which is not normally used for portraits but if done well comes out very well. Once again job well done. Thank you for sharing
