photoblog image Air bound!

Air bound!

This a remix of yesterdays shot but with a human this time :) This is Bona, we were playing around after church so I thought it was a perfect time to get some "stop action" shots. I took a bunch of shots but only few could lead the eyes to believe she was actually air bound. It almost looks like she is kneeling in the air!

Dee this is such a fun, lovely shot that's in focus and with a very nice comp. If the contrast was alittle higher it would make a very nice A3 that I would buy.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Johnny, I will enhance the contrast to your taste just so I can make some money of you smile I really hope you have lots it smile

Eeeck all the stuff I just wrote dissapeared, Aaaaaargh, Is shutterchance slow tonight or is it just me.

Anyway said I am glad how far you have come since your very 1st posts on Shutterchance, keep up the good work and keep posting them lovely images, Good to see you working on your PP as well, nice use of G blur here, does draw ones eyes to the model

Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Bro.
She detaches herself from the background so nicely, she almost looks like she was cut and pasted from a different pic. I agree with you, she looks like kneeling in mid air. VERY GOOD.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Samira, glad you like it.

Great capture. How many times did you have to set this up? Did you do something in post to blur the edges and background?
Dotun Ayodeji: Well Ted, I took about 20 shots but they were all different happy poses. About 4 of them came out blurry. I could actually run a week full of her shots. Yes I did some extra PP, the cars in the background were very distracting so I added some G Blur. thanks for stoping by.

This is a powerful shot. It is completely obvious that she is having fun. I like the b/w treatment too. It gives it a bit of an oldtime feel that goes along with the innocent fun.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Martin, glad you like.

Excellent capture of her in mid air! She looks so happy. Good use of black and white, too. I like the blur around the sides.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks PJ, I also thought the blurr would be effective.
Lovely picture mate! The capture and effect are great. smile
Hiya Dotun. This is a truly spectacular capture, not an original idea, but very well worked even so. Yes the contrast is a bit out, not too much of a problem though.
The use of b/w is the perfect choice for this photo, I think it probably has a lot more impact than a colour version. All in all, a very good posting.

Warmest wishes, Neil.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Neil, I boosted the contrast a bit on my local copy and it improved it, I like it more.
good timing.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Chantal, it was.
