A Clebration of Strings

Post by Ernst-Ulrich Schafer » Mon Aug 14, 2017 10:43 pm

I was asked to document a retirement event over the weekend. The orchestra conductor at our local high school after 30 years of service decided it was time to give up the baton.

Awesome images, as usual Ernst. I particularly love the portrait of the violinist. The cropping really draws you in.

Bravo, Maestro! Exceptional. Conductor reminded me instantly of the incomparable Leopold Stokowski! One of the things I love about your stuff is the literally out-of-the-box cropping. You often crop to the subject, and why not? I suspect one reason a lot of us stick to certain aspect ratios is so the thing will fit a Walmart frame, but of course you can mat it. Sometimes I remember to do that. :|

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Wonderful images, Ernst. There is so much energy (and music) implied in how you captured them. The first is especially wonderful. I also like the next to last one a lot, with its intentional blurring and interesting framing. A series I spent a good bit of time enjoying.

I love the texture on the first, the timeless quality of the rest, and the blur of the cello strings. Beautiful as always! S-

I ended up not liking the lst version of the conductor so I reworked the portrait. Felt it was to contrasty. ;-)

What are your thoughts of adding a light texture of sheet music to the background? S-
