About the Image(s)

This is my grandson Luke. I was trying to do some portraits and he wanted to pose. So he got the panda and I found a photogenic chair and I took some images with a pair of Canon Rebel Xt cameras I linked together for 3D. Of the several I took I liked this one the best because of his expression. He’s now a senior in high school, works part time (even with Covid 19) and I don’t think he’d be interested in portraits any more. He’s still a fantastic grandson. Here is a picture of my linked Canons. They worked fairly well but almost always had a focus problem with one or the other of the 3D images, as the cameras focused on a slightly different place in the 2 3D images. The zoom was good enough and could always be corrected. The sync between the two shutters was real good as Canon took the image at the instant the shutter release was pushed.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

David, You picked a very nice background. It really helps the image a lot. It gives the image a very nice depth of field. You have a very handsome grandson. I like your Canon cameras setup. It is very elaborate.   Posted: 11/09/2020 16:19:44

Excellent. This close-up image has nice depth, beautiful color combinations and good lighting. I liked the expression of the boy. The background fits very well. Nice job.   Posted: 11/19/2020 12:47:43

This is one for the family album although he may not like it now with the Panda. Good stereo and interesting to see a pose with the subject looking sideways whilst most these days like the subject to be looking at the cameera   Posted: 11/19/2020 16:10:03

I'm hot sure about Luke and his Panda. Here is an image I took about 3 weeks ago of Luke (in the mask) and his younger brother Logan. Luke drove over to help me rake leaves and when they were through, they went to the car to go home. I followed them. Luke had put this stuffed aardvark in the driver seat while the car was parked. I had to take a 3D picture of the 3 and I called it "Look Who's Driving".   Posted: 11/19/2020 18:05:34

This is a nicely composed image and I do like the simplicity and similar colors in the panda, cushions, and hat; and splash of the red scarf and blue shirt. There are different patterns but everything pulls together. Luke has a nice pose and the depth is good which also separates all the elements. The hat has very subtle lighting behind it to separate the black hat from the black wall...it creates a nice edge on the hat. Very nice David...and nice story.   Posted: 11/28/2020 23:36:30

I don't like to use focus/zoom rings, but yours seems to have worked well.   Posted: 11/30/2020 10:55:19
