sorry, one more post

I'd like you to look at this one

http://www.hejl.com …hots/madrid/lar​ge-58.html (external link)

In my shots, it is very important to me to direct the eye. I spent a lot of time working on this photo.

It is not a picture of a crowd, it is a picture of a person.

Notice how all the others seem to be wearing dark colors? That was all hand-done.

Anyway, I'm not calling it out to brag on it -- I just spent so freaking long editing it... I wanted someone to see it :)

later,

--jim

haha - ok, one more post -- but for a different reason.

Some kids saw me shooting, and started yelling "Photo! Photo! Photo!". I like candid work, so I didn't think much of it... I just swung the camera around and shot it.

http://www.hejl.com …hots/madrid/lar​ge-51.html (external link)

The kid on the right just made that great pose, and the kid on the left has his cell open. I don't think it is a spectacular shot or anything -- but I think it captures the "youth of today".

Anyway, it's funny --- to spend so long looking for shots, then to have one given to you.

Ok, it's midnight now. Night everyone.

The first thing I looked at was the person on the middle of the picture. Cool stuff!

Entire gallery is really great. I especially like the street clown capture. In my beginner opinion every shot has superb composition.

Thanks! On a related subject - does anyone have tips for "going pro"? I see myself doing advertising work - not a private studio.

One issue is that I have a very, very good job now.

My hope/desire/fantasy was that I could stay employed and still shoot some jobs. Does anyone do this? I'm really walking in blind... I don't know the first thing about how to get started with an agency.

I'm not in a big rush. I still have plenty to learn.

And I've been shooting, and shooting, and shooting...
