This is a picture of my friend Zoe and her neighbor Lexi outside. I took this picture by Lexi walking up the street so she was in position with Zoe's hand.
I think how you took a new path on the idea of a double portrait by drawing attention to the depth of field of the two subjects, is really interesting. It brings to mind the idea of size of the subjects, and how it could easily be manipulated in a photograph, either by the photographer or through optical illusions. This trick on the eye creates an original image that sheds light on these different ideas, good work!
This is such a beautiful picture! I think you captured the situation well, and the composition is great. The lighting is also perfect for this picture. This is inspiring because by seeing it, I know you guys had fun getting the picture. Having fun while capturing a photo always adds to the effect.
I thought a bit more about your photo, and realized I did something very similar to it! I actually used photoshop to set this up, but the effect is similar. I have a few more photos similar to this in my flickr. :)
I appreciate this photo because it's very comical. You can see the relationship between the two of them that it is humourous. The colors also stand out to me as well, the girl in the foregrounds hair really draws my eye into the picture as well as the sharpness of it. It would have been interesting to see the girl in the foreground to have been the blurry one and see if the color still had the same effect.
Yes, I agree, the photo captures an element of humor. Also, the angles and placement of the people was very unique!
My favorite thing about this photo is that it`s original. You incorperated photoshop in a way that looks like the photo wasn`t retouched at all. Also, the subjects and theme of this photo isn`t your typical portrait. The colors are so bright and vibrant in this photo, even in the parts that aren`t in focus. Great job!
This is a mind blowing photo. I love how you adjusted her to fit in the palm of your hand! It looks very real. Many people just capture a photo in the moment but it seems like you set it up for the picture. This is a different way at looking at things and very out of the box! Keep up the good work!!!
This picture caught my attention. I found it interesting how the red haired girl was holding her friend in her hand. It made me look at it twice to make sure I wasn't seeing things. The expression on the red haired girls face is great as well. She has a puzzled look which makes you feel the same. This is similar to the portraits I have recently taken in the past weeks while working on portraits. This goal of a portrait is to show something off and I feel that through the red haired girls facial expression and hand gesture, it can tell us a bit about her. The background is very creative as well since its a road and it seems to get smaller and smaller just like the other girl.
This is a stunning photograph. It is evident this took a lot of time and effort t position each other perfectly to create this flawless photograph. It doesn't even seem as though the hand overlaps the person in the background which is amazing. I love this photograph and the creativity, in fact I plan to create something similar too! Excellent photograph.
The idea and main focus of this picture is extremely interesting. I think it's really intriguing how the first person in the picture is so focused, while the person in the background is very blurred. This adds more to the affect of the first person "holding" the second. The lines in the road also add to the affect of the person looking smaller in the background. Very nice job!
Chill yo, this is cool! It's funny how you this one dude is holding this other dude up. I think you could have made the background focused better if you'd changed the aperture setting on your camera, though, and I think that would have made the picture even better.
I agree with Jake but I think that the point of the picture was to have it in the telephoto effect, I think that the blurriness of the background actually improves the photo. It would be interesting to see it taken not from a telephoto perspective though.
Ideas like the one incorporated into this photograph is, for me personally, what keeps photography interesting. Our class is also doing a unit on portraits, so a unique one like this definitely serves as an inspiration for the creative component of the entire process. You definitely thought outside the box, which is something I hope to do with my work, so thanks for sharing with us.
