Images by Emanuel – photo assessment

Emanuel

thank you for your submission. I see you lobe black and white photography and you have called your series of photos “Couples”. The fact you are pursuing a theme, tells me you are a consisten photographer with a clear artistic direction and intent and I salute that. Your images look very good together as I can see the common factor and I would suggest you keep them together. I do not believe in this case the images can excel by themselves. Without further talk let’s get to it!

From the heart

You have mentioned the hear like tree shape . if you would not have mentioned that, I would have never guessed. That should tell you that what you see is not what the other will, and also it is a difficult reference to justify. But this matter is not affecting the quality of the image. The composition is good, rule of thirds, balance is good with the trees on the left. I love the way the carriage breathes with space around it, you capture it well. I believe it is a good image, but the value is only yours.

 Seduction

I can see you know composition very well and you do not need to think about it. It comes to you naturally, showing a well developed artistic sense. The subject is OK, light is nice but the image is again value to you as there are 2 people on bicycles which is not unheard of. All the technique and skills are there, it is just what you want to say. But taking into consideration it is part of a series, I guess the image is OK.

Serenade

The image below is OK-ish as I have seen the first 2 but there is too much going one, too much detial. The intention is clear just by judging the other 2 images, but If I would take this picture individually, it will look like a random pic, rather than a clear intention to capture a couple from behind. And if this is about the couple, that the subject is under utilised and creates confusion. the focus is on them by chance or by intention. If this is not clear in one instant, that means you did not convey the message well. Perhaps getting on a lower perspective point and use a telephoto lens to make the singer more blurry would help.

One other thing, there is no emotion to this one

I believe you are a good photographer, and I believe if you practice, you will have the chance to get great shots, with great subjects that impress and speak to people more. Just black on white and one subject shot in many versions are not enough to prove value overall.
