Green Tea In Motion by CrypticGrin

I know that you're just starting out with photography, so I'm keeping that in mind as I write this critique. That said, I want you to u...

I apologize in advance – this might sting a little. I'll start with what you got right. The pose is suitably casual, and having your mo...

Overall, a well-executed, dramatic low-key shot. Given your constraints (lack of a tripod and high ISO setting on the camera), I'd say ...

So I heard back from one art director and two photo editors this week. No guarantees of work, but at least I'm on their respective radar screens.

...

I finished off a self-promo that I'd been working on since last October. Originally, it was going to incorporate this shot:

Architectural Abstraction by SteveCaissie-stock

but rotated 90º around to make the large vertical face appear to be a platform. In the end though, after fussing with it for several weeks, putting it down, coming back to it, looking at it from all different perspectives, I realized that simpler was ultimately better. You can see the final image on my flickr page here. For a slightly closer look at the kid on the board, there's a detail section here.

You're quite welcome. I always like seeing how people push the boundaries, and that's a great example. Reminds me a bit of something I saw on flickr once where a photographer took 6-second exposures of fireworks going off, and gradually either focused or defocused the camera during the exposure so that the normal light trails turned into these exotic shapes that looked like luminescent sea anemones in the dark.

Wow, that sounds really amazing. I saw an example which I keep experimenting with where someone focused on their Christmas tree, set a long exposure and then zoomed out (rather than many pictures where the photographer zooms in) which was also very unusual but as everything was sharp - I suspect they used a tripod - it was really eye catching.

I've also been meaning to try something where I gradually change the aperture during a long exposure (which is only possible because I have manual lenses). I'd have to do a lot of experimentation to get the exposure right, though.

I saw your work on the DD page, and liked it so much that I came to browse...  I didn't even realize the DD was stock, and looking at your gallery, I just gotta say, your eye for photography is amazing!!!  The quality is so good, and all that I saw I would consider art more than stock!  Well done, well done!

What most people on here consider "stock" would get tossed straight in the trash at a stock photo agency like Getty. The work I produce is not amazing, it's merely the price of entry. I'm a decent photographer, but there are many more talented than I, both here on dA and out in the rest of the world.
