Killer Look !


One of the dancers, during Rejuvination Ceremony at Arab street, Singapore. The background is quite distracting.

This is a great shot! I love the angle.. You could remove the distraction by just making the subject (the dancer) in color and the rest in b&w.. just and idea.

Lovely portait shot, i like the diagonal compostion. For blur background use small aperatures if your camera permits that.

I would prefer to to tilt it the other way round, perhaps my eyes adapt better on the right side. Haha. The diagonal background could be taken advantage of to set up dynamic tension or sense of movement within the picture. :)

twas a lovely capture i must say n the background doesn't seem disturbing - it brings out an effect in a way by separting the person from his surroundings - if it hadn't been this way, the uniqueness would've dissapeared bcoz then, everything would've been sharp n to me - that wouldn't have looked good :)

I think Ashish means small aperture numbers (say f/1.8 ~ f/4.5) have to be used in order to blur the background. And in the same way if you want the background to be sharp as well you need to use large aperture numbers (say f/8 and greater). But a small apperture number actually means a larger aperture and vice versa. I hope I did not confuse anyone on this point.
