simplicity and minimalism photography

critique

Hi Christian, my name is Kanayo Adibe. I have 3 pictures I would love to get your take on. I just got a Nikon D5100 for Christmas and took a few pics. I have been taking pics on my iPhone and would like to take things to the next level. I have a minimalist photo I shot, a portrait of my dog using an off camera flash and a trick I leaned for the invisible back black backdrop and a somewhat candid shot of a kid I know he basically turned around and I took the shot. I appreciate your time and all the resources you have made available to us. I basically used the kit lens for all there shots 18 – 55mm.

thank you for your submission. I really enjoyed looking at your pictures. let’s be consistent and use the Tudor Rating System as it proved to be working very well.

Bird on a pole

simplicity photography

Content 7 out of 10

A bird on a pole is nothing spectacular, however the simplicity of the shot is very pleasing to my eyes. It is more than a bird on a pole it is a dialogue. I love the contrast and the way the light pole is breathing in its simplicity

Composition 8 out of 10

very good use of the rule of thirds, nice proportion of the subject in relation to the emptiness around it, it is just right

Image quality 8 out of 10

I see skills in port production

Final TRS mark 7.6 out of 10

Despite the lack of action or drama, the subject breathes very comfortable and you have managed a visual pleasant experience. Thi sis a good picture showing your well trained eyes and sense of proportion. I am confident that this is not random but indended

 

The dog

Content 8 out of 10

Another good pet photography/portrait of a dog if I can call it a portrait. I love your simple but sophisticated approach. You have captured the essence and that is a plus from me

Composition 8 out of 10

I see you know what your are doing. the best use of rule of thirds

Image quality 6 out of 10

I enjoy the contrast of shadow and light, I see artificial light and that puts a dent in my experience, but that might be subjective. I do not believe the isolation of the dog with dark around it works if your are using a flash or a direct light with shadows

Final TRS mark 7.3 out of 10

This is a good picture at the end, despite few setbacks in my personal opinion. Still part of good photography though

Child portrait

another great work. Once someone is at a certain level, I trust most of images will be similar in terms of quality of the subject. I love the image…great job. It is a very good portrait in the world of portraiture.

You have successfully isolated the essence of him, probably show curiosity rather than personality, but this is more than good for me

same comments as above

Image quality 6 out of 10

I love the post production, however I could see in the high resolution image you have sent me that the photo is not sharp but blurry. so something happened there. I also recognise the flash on the camera which is very difficult to produce a nice result, however it this case works really well….not sure if this was intended or just pure luck.

Final TRS mark 7.3 out of 10

Another great image, not much to say other that you are a good photographer. and you should be teaching others. where is your website?

Your images are very good in my opinion. You have a good eye and great talent. You have the ability to see things and I salute that.You have demonstrated that less is more and simplicity and minimalism in photographer can be sofisticated.

I trust you know what you are doing and I would be proud if you would like to be a member of our Academy , as I believe you have value to share.

Christian
