Inspiration...to be inspired!

Hello everyone. My name is Emil.

I'm new here and I would like to say hi to everybody.
I know a few of you but I would love to know you all.

Every photographer is unique and have a speciall stile, so I want everyone to inspire and be inspired here.

This is how it works

I put 11 points...one for every subject. And if you feel that you can inspire anyone in the area of that subject, just bring it on!

Theres the points:

1*Basic knowledge:

2*Composision:

3*Camera tecnics:

4*The knowledge why we like some kind of photos and others not:

5*Catch the feeling in the picture:

6*3D>2D How to turn the 3D(reality) to a good 2D (photo)

7*Camera gears that fits your demand:

8*Deaph of field:

9*Bokeh(background blur):

10*Inspirations sourses: Magazines, books or this post :P :

11*Portraits:


Now choose one number from the list and share and inspire with your experience about this subject

I go out first:

*5: catch the feeling:

I think that it's important that the photo looks like your eyes was see it. Nothing else.
Photoshop is okey to use for change the picture the way you saw it.
If you think that the sky was more red, then you turn it more red.
Only remember to be honest to yourself and your photo, and you will now look your photos and said...wow, that was really the feeling/picture I wanted to capture, (becasue it is exactly how you was remember the place (or the person).
If the place really was that beautiful in the true world, you will now see that in your photo as well.

That was my tips for catch the feeling in one picture

I hope I was inspire some of you....now it's your turn to inspire me and everybody else

who's next in line?

Best Regards

Emil Gustafsson

#5, Catch the feeling.

There's nothing more rewarding to me than to have a parent tell me that I've captured their baby son/daughter in the pictures I've taken, or a couple tell me they had no idea grandpapa was having such fun at the wedding, getting down on the dance floor busting a hip to Elvis tunes.

This is what catching the feeling means to me, having someone else tell me I did it

agree on that, but I would say it's not just about the feeling, I'd call that point: capture the mood... it's one of the most important criteria for me, it can make or break a shot, of course it's not valid for all types of photography...

Capture the mood is an intressting way to see it. I think that the most important is that every person find the way that works for one each of us
The mood is intressting too, anytime you are sad and very likely your photos will contain much sadness, but a happy day and happy mood the b&w photos changing in colors and pure contrast. The mood affect much so it's nice point to call it capture the mood.
Many times it's all about it, as well as it could break the shot

For me, 8&9 go together. I think I enjoy equally playing with shallow DOF and Bokeh to make a representation
instead of a duplicate.
But really I think there should be another category;

12*The sheer joy of documenting a history of the world as I see it.
