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.

Question:
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?

Thanks,
Tim

The second one is an excellent and hilarious capture, but the first one could easily be an ad for Sprite!:smile:

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!

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.

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?

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.

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

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.
