Compositional Balance
1/22/2011 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  
Do you tend to center all your subjects? You’ll read a lot about the “rule of thirds” and I’ve talked about it in the past, and other rules, but really composition isn’t so much about rules as it is about ‘feel’, a sort of balance you achieve when you take a few extra moments and think beyond the main subject.

 
 


Birds Of Thailand, The Watchman
1/15/2011 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  
These birds are elusive. You’ll see them, but then they’re gone rarely staying in the same place for longer than a second or two making them very difficult to photograph. And when you do see them, they’re hidden in brush or thickets and you rarely get a clear shot.

 
 


52 Chevy
1/8/2011 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

My goal in the processing was to bring out the natural colors of the couple on the bike and the car, while further reducing the exposure of the background sky. I wanted the main subjects to stand out in the frame and fit the theme of flamboyant Havana. What do you think, did I succeed?


 
 


Permanent Relationships
12/18/2010 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

So to me, this specific photograph will always remind me of a specific summer, the last summer before my son is off to the university, where we shared a moment of warmth and humor.


 
 


A Little Girl, A Cockroach

Recently I got a great sequence of my daughter dealing with a cockroach that she found at the house.

 
 


The Difference Light Makes!
12/4/2010 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  
Layers upon layers of thick haze settled over the area and due to a maniac hit and run driver we were delayed several hours arriving at the worst time of the day.

 
 


Looking Beyond
11/27/2010 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

Lately I’ve noticed many of you lambasting yourselves over critical focus and I worry I’ve over emphasized the subject. Certainly an image is more interesting if sharp and detailed, even if the subject is plain boring. However, you need to keep things in perspective.


 
 


Elements Of A Composition
11/20/2010 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

It was a terribly hot and sunny morning at Safari World.  No color, no clarity, the air was so dirty you could cut it with a knife.  The sky was hot white, and the air so still the mozzies could control their flight.  What a rotten day I was thinking.


 
 


Equipment Or Technique?
11/6/2010 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

There is no doubt that at a certain level equipment elevates image quality.  However, I think you’d be surprised with how far off that level really is and how great your images can be with your simple point and shoot compact if you just employ a bit of technique and take a bit of time to practice.


 
 


They Call It “Progress…”
10/23/2010 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

Roughly 30-40 minutes outside Pai in the Mae Hong Son province I ran across this place and couldn't help but admire the view and the property.  A nice 1.5 acre site perched on a cliff overlooking a spectacular vista.
