    My first time taking a person picture inside a chimney!

    We were really inside a chimney of an old warehouse where she was just about to rock climb up the inside of it. It was so small we barely both fit. I had to lay on this platform.. Needless to say there is not much light inside a chimney.

    Hey, Shannon, Submit this shot on the composition assignment of yours! If I were your teacher I'd give you a high grade for this. Hahaha! Did you see the catchlight in her eyes?... awesome!

    Thanks Willie, I can't submit it unfortunately .. we can only submit photos from the location we were at. Which was another nature place.. I don't enjoy taking nature pictures that much lol, But I try my best.. I like taking people the best. Thanks for the compliment.. it makes me very happy especially coming from you because I admire your work very much!

    You may not be able to hand it in now but A BEAUTIFUL addition to your portfolio! And I think the lighting is great, the wisps of hair, the facial structure. And this is without photoshop, right?

    NO I don't know how to use, photoshop yet. I know how to change the exposure a bit and that's about it. I was lucky that the lights they had up the chimney happened to be shining right on her face. It was like we were inside a black tunnel. Thanks for your comments I will keep that in my folder of pictures I want to photoshop someday when I learn how.

    I don't think you need to PS it. I was trying to say I love it and you didnt even have to PS it.

    Re: My first time taking a person picture inside a chimney!

    very fine timing and composition but to me it seems that the focus is out. The top of the frame is the sharpest area? neil

    Re: My first time taking a person picture inside a chimney!

    Now this is getting annoying. The first time it happened, I thought it was me. But twice .....!!?

    I did post a response and now it's gone! Weird. Anyway, I've alerted Sean.

    What I did say (I think) is that this is a beauty. Even without the constraints that you had this is a very good image. Given where you were and the difficulties of that, it is an excellent piece of work. The range and richness of tone across the image is there. Any issue of the focal point being in the wrong place is, I think, absolutely minimal and does not detract from the image. And the B & W rendering is spot on.

    Well done.

    And if you see this and then it disappears, could you confirm that it's not only me.

    I don't know, one thing I liked was the sharp background - gave a sense of place...

    Good photo.
    Though I'm wondering what all you have shot inside a chimney?
