    You're getting better at this. Much better than the last couple DJ pics you put up. :bigthumb:

    i'd imagine a DJ with 3 hands is pretty good right?

    Not good, but better than the last time.
     
  6. Playing with bulb exposure and 2nd curtain flash on a few of them, just felt like trying something new :dunno:

    i can totally respect the approach and it is somewhat artsy?
     
  8. Well, he was pretty stationary, so I had to use some creativity and try something

    what about a huge aperture and DOF shot? i'd like to see him in focus with the headset and blurry equipment
     
  10. I didn't get much of a big aperature (more than 5.6) cus my kit lens (yeah, I used that...) couldn't focus as much.

    Where is he "DJing," the basement of the H&R Block he works at during the week?
     
  12. There's not many "clubs" here in South Dakota... so you gotta make do :dunno:

    :rofl:

    Maybe some crowd shots would help :dunno: Unless the above is a somewhat accurate statement...

    your flash is too overpowering, even with dragging the shutter.

    why not bounce the flash off the wall beside him instead of shooting direct?

    your shadows would be significantly reduced and the lighting would be more flattering and soft on the DJ

    v600s and retail sales outfit ≠ pro


    But, I like some of the trailing you're doing with the sync. I'd suggest getting shots with dialogue - the interaction *if there is any* between him and the crowd *again, if there is any*

    If there's no dialogue in a photograph, it's not any fun.
     
  18. The problem is this club was sort of dead on a Saturday night, and the crowd wasn't really responsive... he would try to get them involved, but it didn't work out... :dunno:

    I'd suggest pick something interesting to shoot :io:

    But in all seriousness, I would. [​IMG]

    I feel ya, I'm in ND, the closest thing to a "club" we have is a bar with a dance floor and guys playing music.

    Honestly, I'd find something more interesting to shoot. I don't think anything you can do would make that guy, that venue, and what he's doing interesting. Sorry...

    There are ways to make it appear more interesting than it is, he just needs to tone down his flash.
     
  22. Old Broadway? I've been there...
