    in other news, after searching for a week for a rental 70-200 f/2.8 i finally found one.

    if any canadian shooters are looking for a shop check. I sent email to them at 10:05 about the lens and a custom rental period, and within 5 mins i had a reply and its actually in stock (unlike Vistek / Henry's)

    1. what is the graphical relationship between these two elements?
    Assume the coke bottles are just straight lines on an open field.
    What's the relation between them. Closeness? Apartness? Diagonal? Askew? Negative space in between?

    Most any photograph relies on the strength of its underlying visual composition. This is still true whether its people, or inanimate objects you're photographing.

    This book may interest you if you want to know more.


    2. The bright spot, and visual focus, appears to be "Cola" which is oof.
    Dof is too shallow here. what are you trying to show the viewer?


    4. subject appears underexposed. Either light it, or even better, silhouette it, on a bright field.
    The Coke hourglass is a trademarked shape because its so recognizable. Use that.


    Bonus pic: If you're a canadian, do you remember "Voice of Fire"? Yeah it was a total pos, but getting paid 1.8M for pure graphic design is pretty balls, if you ask me.

    As for how that relates to your pic, the central element would be stronger if the photo weren't slightly skewed.


    keep shooting bro.

    I actually am drawn to the C in Cola in the 2nd pic:dunno:

    the 3rd one all the little speckles to the right draw me away from the bottle:dunno:.

    with the 4th I think that underexposing the bottle to get the sky in was a mistake since the bottle was obviously the subject matter.

    2 shiny pennies and a grain of salt.
