I really do like your "motion pictures" (;-)) ... the background is always very impressive (postprocessed?).
This one was slightly... the last one was more, so yes. I have some more coming up which werent and will post soon. I was not going to post this because it felt a little wrong but I am feeling a little stiffled and wanted something different more than anything else... boredom maybe..... I felt he needed impact.... he was walking pretty quickly though.. and the background was slightly blurred but not enough I thought!
Hm, felt wrong, hmm ... on the one hand I find the lighting on/around the plastic bag and his left arm fascinating (this "white shadow - do you know what I mean? - my English is sleepy and tired tonight like myself) on the other hand I would have liked to see more emphasis on the face ... nevertheless a fine photo to me :-)
I have never believed in altering photos too much, but find myself trying different things right now.... I guess its a balance right? Gotta get it right in the camera though in my opinion... so working on that! The rest is "window dressing"... or should be....For him, the face is nice and I thought about it, however it is as much about his face as his occupation and the "rush"... this is at lunch time and clearly there is something either forgotten or special request..... however.... I also thought about the face.... funnily enough!
Hmmm..it doth appear, maybe, that ze chef is making off with some of the goodies...taking them home, perhaps?
hum jaime bien nice
Hope he saves some desert for me
Shaun, you last comment here fits my thoughts about the photo to a T. A chef during a busy time who has forgotten something.I am not up to taking this sort of shot yet but am getting closer with each passing week. I am also aiming to get it right "in camera" rather than the pp route.Nice photo essay ...
I like the motion in this shot too. For some reason I really like the bag of oranges too. It's slightly surreal in effect...something about the sheen on it.
Maybe I should have titled this "Off WITH the menu" huh Jacob?Thanks for the comments on this...
Wonderful photo of a man who is heading to his goal and occupied with his thoughts! It is great how you captured the motion and details!
An amazing capture of an instant in time...is he rushing back from the grossery store to cook your steak & frites which you just ordered from the menu at his restuarant...?
iI love this! This is so great - the photo and especially the title. How i read it is as "Cooking off the menu" - the chef ran out and got extra ingredients because he was inspired to make something in particular, it's a shot with such motion - in the middle of his shopping dash and in the middle of creating a new dish. or... i like what you said above, "off WITH the menu" - fun too. either way, amazing photo here. i don't know enough about photography as you and the others to critique it - i am just enjoying it, thanks. :)
