Bedroom Gymnastics (not adult)

I was touring New York State with a british rock bank (I organised the tour and drove the van.... and bounced on beds). Here's the pics from a hotel. ROCK N ROLL!!







The principle is this:
2 double-beds are next to each other. Run up and jump on the first one then fly through the air and land on the 2nd bed. Et voila = much fun.

i dont know quite why, but im intrigued by your style of photography

can i ask what your aiming for (in terms of style and results with photography?) because with most photos (portraits, landscapes and the others) its easy to tell what is technically wrong and correct in a picture but sometimes that will change depending what your aiming for ( like most photographers want to have at least some of the photos to have crisp and sharp focus or perfect exposure but yours is different)

I suppose what I most want is to create a photo that myself and/or anybody else will be able to gaze at for as long as 2 minutes before moving on.

I guess you could say I'm trying to capture a moment in such a way that that moment can be relived for longer than just the moment that the event took to happen.

The obvious technical flaws in the above photos do not necessarily prevent me from reaching this goal

great
great reply the last line sums it up for me i mean its a bad photo in terms of the normal technical stuff but i like it
often the technically good photos are the less likable ones and just blend in to the rest

exactly. In fact I'm often put off by technically perfect photos. Not exactly sure why that is to be honest

I think the main difference between most technically good photographs and shots like this are intentions. Obviously, technically these shots are not great. They work for you because the portray a moment you want to remember. I generally call these snapshots, not photographs. I think, unless you want them ripped apart, shots like these would be better suited for the Photos for Fun forum, as opposed to the Critique Corner.

Thans Tim,
I'm not sure what I feel about that. Just because a photo lacks signs of technical expertise doesn't demote it to a snapshot status. Look at much of the modern art, and listen to much of the modern art music. Do you see/hear much evidence of technicial expertise in there? Sure there's some, but often there is none.

I'd agree with that. But if I'd simply wanted to capture a moment/mood so that I could look back later, I'd have stood and normal standing height, stood back a few yards and took a photo of someone jumping from one bed to another. But as it was, we had a good session where the object was to get a cool camera angle.

So the focus was on getting a good angle, not getting a snapshop for the album and not getting technically proficient photo for submitting to competitions.

I don't mind if my shots are ripped apart. I really don't mind. The only actual snapshop that I believe I've submitted today was the shot in the back of the van which was simply meant as a scene setter, not as something to enjoy looking at.

I think what Tim is trying to say is that because you have a memory that is attached to the moment and time when the photos were taken, they have a lot more meaning to you than an anyday person perusing through photos.

Personally the photos dont do a lot for me, I dont really see a story, but I do see a lot of blur. I would say dont expect others to see photos through the same eyes as you do.

And Im a firm believer of having a knowledge of the rules before you attempt to break them.
