'Gun Control vs Photo Bomb'

Post by davechinn » Sun Sep 09, 2018 6:36 pm

A vigil was held in Cincinnati on Fountain Square the day after the tragic shooting to honor, mourn the victims. I able to attend afterwards, and alto I have captured this man previously at another location with a different sign I have come to the conclusion that he may be an activist. Different sign different event. Anyway, while I was focusing in on him for a photo, I noticed the woman to the left, but never really observed her body language until afterwards. Unbeknownst to me, she was posing for me. I didn't mind, but wished I had my aperture set to get her more in focus. Either way a photo bomb it is.

Dave, Love it. The fellow in the middle is giving some odd hand signal, pretending he is scratching his back.

The oof effects remind me of something I saw in today's NY Times, Men's Fashion Magazine, Sept 9, 2018 -- I look at these magazines to study the photography. The opening spread of three pages contains ads for Giorgio Armani. The photos immediately caught my attention. I tried to find a link but was unable; maybe you or another pM-er, more tech-savvy than I, might be able to find and post it. The photos are very grainy, slightly out of focus and resemble mine when I don't use a tripod and wind up with camera shake. Things I also notice; the heads of two of the models are flush up against the top of the frame with no breathing room; subtle but overt leadening lines in the background; rule of thirds thrown out the window. I wonder whether this approach will become a trend.

My apologies to all those Stateside, but being an out of towner. I find the idea that anyone can carry a lethal weapon offensive.
Kind regards;

I was under the impression that the US and Australia has a similar history with guns and the taming of the wilds. In the US it's the settlers moving west while in the outback it was the settlers expanding their settlements. It's interesting how the two similar starts ended up with polar attitudes towards guns.

Matt, I'm sure the gentleman in the center is JUST scratching his back rather than pretending otherwise.

The oof effects are, I'm sure intentional, as this one was as well. Altho, I can only imagine what effects you saw without seeing them. Thanks for your comments.

The result is a kooky, offbeat image that works well with the unfocused/gauzy look you're working with. It is a small comment on society, that we range, in such short spaces, from the silliness to the seriousness you've caught in this little frame. Well done.

Duck;
Weapons of any general description are banned, but we do have gun clubs with strict controls. Such as, store pistol in a locked safe, police will also regularly check your premises.
Yes we did have a violent history
Dave;
No, you did not give offense. Nice talking to you.
Kind regards;

Dave, The effects on my screen, in addition to the oof, are something like a soft glow around the three people that doesn't blur the people but seems to emanate from them like a haze. Maybe it's my meds. Or my booze. No matter. Great capture. Matt

Matt, I can't speak for YOUR eyes, but where this image is concerned you are seeing things correctly, so don't blame the meds or booze just yet. I added the soft glow in Topaz Lens Effect under filter diffusion. Something I have been playing around with. I need more practice for perfection that probably will never come.
