Photographers Photo (3)

I am reminded of the lovely quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson: To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

Pictures like this make me wanna be a photojournalist. Is it too late to become one?
If only you took this a stop or two higher!

Nicely captured mate though i agree that a bit more depth of field would have improved the shot. Might also want to clone those bright spots out.

Screwing up the face? Watch the body positions sometimes - you can make a candid camera series of it smile

Great picture but watch it next time that the guy will be holding onto a Canon, hey?
I think this would have more impact if shot at 1.8 or 2.0. DOF too shallow especially at such 1600 ISO.

I look at this shoot and say, Yes, it could have been sharper, but I doubt this would have made any difference in the impact of the shot which in this case is based on two elements:

1. The subject matter.
2. The composition.

In such a shot as above the photographer has but one chance, it's either a hit or a miss.

As an artist I have come to terms with the fact that almost everything is relative. Sharpest included.

There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. -Robert Frank
