day five by NikolasBrummer day five by NikolasBrummer
day five/fourteen

title: clear the mind

so yeah. first of all, weather is a bitch. how can it be possible that the sun shines brightly all friggin' day and the moment I decide to take the picture I've been planning out in my head before, it gets cloudy and gloomy.
that frustrates me. hence, I decided to take another photo, something more simple. I love these books, they are so much fun, and I always wanted to put them on a photo. I hope you can figure the concept out by yourself. :dummy:

Also, today was the last day of work. Which is awesome! :la: AND I BOUGHT THE NEW FLORENCE + THE MACHINE ALBUM.
DAMN IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!

I want it. My boyfriend has the white on and we read it for hours, but the black one could be interesting! :D

This is an interest shot. Are the words on the shirt intentional? I hope so because I think it create a nice triangle for the eyes to follow. Naturally we're drawn to the brightest in focus spot, so the placement of the white book on the left was a smart move. Our eyes follower the words from the white book onto the black book, then down the arm to your shirt and back to the books.
Is the unevenness of the books also intentional? If it is, I would suggest exaggerating it a bit more, right now it looks as though it was a mistake.

By the way, don't take any offense to my comments. I'm not trying to be discouraging. You're a great photographer, I'm just trying to offer some meaningful critique(no premium membership though, so I can't make it official lol)

Oh wow, thank you a lot! Yes, this was intentionally, I wanted to have the black book a little bit upper because I am not a huge fan of symmetry, of you get what I mean!

And I really appreciate every single word you are saying, critique means a lot to me and even if it is negative, as long as it is constructive (and yours is!), I could have it all day, haha. :aww:

You INTENDED to have it uneven?
WOW man, what detail !
I agree with the comment above,that the asymmetry should be more pronounced :)

:iconnikolasbrummer:
NikolasBrummer Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2011
:aww: I love to add small details to photos so they are "complete" to me, haha.
I am glad you agree.

:iconcamiloo:
Camiloo Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
YES!!
I totally agree. I can't stand having a photo that doesn't have some small insignificant detail that probably most people wouldn't notice. It sort of makes the picture really personal, right?
It's AWESOME how we think about our photos in the same way!
Guess its the age of our brains,they're developing at the same pace I think! :D
If I ever go to Germany when I'm 20 plus and I can travel independently, I would love to meet you.

And I also read that if you want to have a "wonky" horizon,you have to make it pronounced too so that it doesn't look like a mistake.

I guess it simply means "if you want to rebel,then don't be shy about it!".
Hahaha.

We haven't talked for so long Nikko! :D

:iconnikolasbrummer:
NikolasBrummer Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
Haha, it is indeed! :) I mean, although other people wouldn't notice it on the first view, you always feel superior for even adding it right there. :)
Yes yes, please! That would be so excellent!

I like being a rebel towards photography at times. It's fun. :dummy:

That's so true, we shall do that more often in the following weeks, in case we both have time. :)
