Sometimes when viewing photos of tours uploaded by good folks, i often feel disappointed that given such a beautiful location, the photos are taken in a bad way.
Three of the most common mistakes are :
1. There is a beautiful scene and the person, subject instead occupies the middle of the screen, effectively blocking the whole scene.
2. Putting the subject in front of a scene and back focused on the scene, creating an awkward blurry photo of the subject
3. Photos that are just repeatedly the same taken by everyone else.
Since photos are memories preserved for sharing and viewing, perhaps its best when traveling couples or friends hire a photographer to go with them instead, photographing the whole journey. This can be done without even posing.
Anyway i am in Busan as we speaks, i am still surprised that i am not able to find any models in Busan via modelmayhem for collaboration nor do i know the language here enuf to go around. But the good news is that i am with family, so some reluctant voluntary modeling by wife and kids are required wuahhahaha.
I don’t have my editing machine here, so these photos are as it is, jpeg out of camera, at most some quick tweaks via iphoto in ipad.
Now Rodrigue of Xvario have been talking about “Cinematic” feel that the camera often produce. I am not sure i understand but i do feel some of the images here produces the “cinematic” feel that i like.
This is mr.Jang, is the name right ??, he is a senior citizen providing voluntary services of explaining to visitors at Beomeosa temple. It’s free, he is doing this just to burn time. Pls say hi to him if you visit this place.
I notice a lot of elderly people walks around Westin Chosun hotel, this old lady saw my kid and wanted to talk to her just asking about where she is from and generally i feel that she is lonely. I offered to take a photo of her with my kid and she quickly agree. After we walked away i notice she left that place also, i do feel a bit sad for her and wonder if this is how she spend her morning walks, while her children are probably in Seoul.
I am not exactly a fan of shopping malls so there i didn’t take any, will be sharing more photos and maybe edit some for a more powerful feel later today.
