"Obey your Thirst" or Not! **Added Question**

Discussion in 'People' started by zapufast, Apr 10, 2007.

  1. I took these while visiting my wifes family in Mississippi.
    She was trying to finish her daddy's Sprite before he could get to her.
    They are straight out of the camera...no cropping.
    Shot with D200 ~ 70-200 VR.
    Please critique.

    If one was to submit an image to a company for them to purchase,
    what would one expect to get for a photograph like this?
    This "one" has never sold an image to a company before.
    Would you sell the rights to the image or what?
    Has anyone here ever sold to a company before?

    The second one is an excellent and hilarious capture, but the first one could easily be an ad for Sprite!:smile:
  5. Gorgeous portraits Tim.
    Colors are excellent and the choice of focal length / aperture provides great subject isolation and bokeh.
    Super candids, shot with perfect timing!
  6. Super shots!
  7. These are great - Love the first one - What were your settings? f2.8 at 200mm?

    These are great shots! The colors of the background are so perfect with the sprite can in the first one....:smile:

    Good positioning against a Green and Blue Backdrop, was that intentional or accidental. Either way, it has complemented the colours on the can really well.

  10. Great Shots!! It is awesome how you were able to catch the pop coming out of her mouth, too cute. Could you share your settings for the pics?

    so cal
    Nice, love the background. Just makes the lust for that lens even more.
  13. Tim, really nice shots! Send the first to Sprite...I'll bet they'll buy it!!
  14. Great timing Tim!
  15. Thanks for everyones comments!

    Here are the settings:
    D200, 70-200 VR at 200mm, f5, 100 iso, 1/640 second exposure

    The background is actually two tarps...one blue and one green.
    It was draped over a fence and was totally luck with the colors and the can.
    The 70-200 just turns it to mush, even at f5.
    Sometimes it's better to be luck than good.

  16. Stellar images................... :eek:

    Both of those are fantastic ...... I agree with everyone else ... send the first one to Sprite!! The background was perfect for this photo.
  18. Thanks Graeme.

    Thanks Lisa.

    You got it

    I think (???) it was Henri Cartier Bresson who spoke of capturing the one magical moment. He gave it a very special term, which I have forgotten and it was translated from French anyway. But, this I know: You found the moment for which that famous photographer searched. Those are absolutely fabulous.
