Skee's back!
And it's going to be nothing but skeetopia for the remaining of the week, yup that's right, Skee double dazzle, is back in town.


Today is a special one…cos it's my hundredth post! Ive finally hit the big 100. Although the counter seems to say otherwise, I think it's counting my deleted shots.

If you're a current viewer here on shutterchance, you'll know that Alakija and myself where out shooting at the Notting hill Carnival together, seeing other peeps do all the standard shots could only set the mood for little ol' skee to be more creative. So over the next week or so the double dazzle will be building up momentum to that which can only be discribed as Skee-to-pia.

This Series of photographs I've named "Carnival in black, white and colour" so I hope that it will inspire you somehow to see things from a different angle :-)

I pulled all the stops for these pics, even including rolling on the ground, by the end of the day… I had the bruises to show… but I also had the shots

Sky Dancers:
Technically this was not an easy shot, I had to lie on my back directly under the dancer with my legs folder back and my body in between them and still shoot. Shot in RAW and further under exposed with C1pro and b/w conversion in photoshop.

I personally don't have any issues with the backlit nature of the shot. However, i do feel that there is too much going on for it to be an effective technique in this instance. Too many dancers, fairly busy background/foreground, etc. In my opinion, a single dancer would have given the shot a bit more focus and impact. Despite my comments, kudos to you for trying something a bit different.

what a tough life for a man.. eh Skee? "I had to lie on my back directly under the dancer with my legs folder back and my body in between them and still shoot"..
Love the feather silhouette and the movement in the two dancers as if they're dancing rather delicately.

Skee, you having to ? "lie on my back directly under the dancer with my legs folder back and my body in between them and still shoot".. God it must have been soo painful grin tongue Some people are soo lucky. I like dark, I like silhouette shots, I like the angle you shot this from, but....... this is a tad too dark even for me smile

There is soo much going on in this shot that truth be told I WANT TO SEE.

I look forward with anticipation at your post for tomorrow.
