I like captures like this that seemingly stop time, and they can be a pain to get, especially when you are the one in front of the lens. The framing seems a bit off to my eyes, maybe the subject a bit more to the left, and zoomed or cropped in just a bit more. But that is nitpicking, it is a great capture.
The only thing that really leaves me wanting is the lighting. I wish there was a bit more to it, maybe another light source to one side, or something to bounce the main source onto the back of the subject. Reflectors are a cheap and easy way to spruce up, so to speak, the lighting in your photos, especially in situations like this.
Still, great capture, and one my lack of coordination would never have been able to pull off
I do agree it is a little off center I just decided I wanted to leave the framing natural and not crop it, don't know why haha. If my other arm would have been captured by the flash on the left side it would have evened out the photo...
But yeah I gotta agree with just about everything you said actually. Now that I think about it...it might be a bit boring if I could take a perfect every time haha...who knows! thanks again for the thoughtful comment, much appreciated.
thanks! yes, technically it took a long time. I think I took this picture on my third shot, but looking at the LCD screen I couldn't tell it came out so I proceeded to shoot about 100 photos....if only I had known...lol
