Ive seen the other work for the most part. I know mine isnt "up to par" with theirs but I believe I made a great first attempt. I noticed alot of things I could have done better now that ive had time to reflect on the event. I am going to get some photography books here soon and practice some more with friends and what not to better capture. I noticed tonight my biggest problem was capturing the movement, even on a tripod. I need to practice panning and all that I guess too.
your work doesnt have to match to theirs. You create your own style.
I humbly believe that there are two factors that finesse the images we all create. Light and Vision. I would suggest to place the viewer of the iamge where he or she is unable to be. Give them the ability to view a perspective they haven’t seen before, enabling the photograph to transcend the mundane and mediocre.
