I learned basic Photoshop and recipe for some good photographs from Scott Kelby videos, happy to see Scott Kelby during HIPA award,Dubai.
The ‘Photography Research/Report’ award from HIPA,2015 presented to world-renowned American photographer and author, Scott Kelby.
Had a quick chat with him, it’s really a memorable moment for me.
When I see the subject and scene, thought this will be a good portrait.
Firstly I decided to compose the photograph and taken a test shot, you can see the result below, not very impressive, the frame, focal length and position of the subject, background was distracting, light ,etc… which was poorly composed.
BEFORE – RECOMPOSE THE PHOTOGRAPH
And then I decided to put the subject in the opposite direction near to the converging lines. Converging lines give a strong sense of perspective, which lead to the subject, given keen attention to the accessories of the subject, position, framing etc….felt it’s a good portrait.
AFTER – RECOMPOSE THE PHOTOGRAPH
Photographed at Chennai, India,2015 during Street walk, when i approached the little boy he was so shy initially , after photographing him he became so serious. Anyhow i love the light and expressive eyes.
