Dailies: Breakdown #1

Welcome to the first of a new series of blog posts entitled: “Dailies: Breakdown #”

This is a self assessment, critique, and discussion about a certain photograph from my Dailies collection of photographs. In no particular order I wish to simply share what I was thinking and seeing when I took the photo. How it works and doesn’t work as a picture, what I would change if I could shoot it again.

The Dailies series has been a very large amount of fun for me so far. There is a certain amount of satisfaction looking back at some of these pictures, other times there are bittersweet moments of life.

This picture, taken in the middle of a team bus ride to an away baseball game, pretty much sums up how a coach might feel on a noisy bus ride. Or at least debate the use of the “emergency exit.”

Even with the EVO camera I am able to pull some close-focus and blur the background a bit, along with framing the shot with the bottom of the bus window. Composition plays a major role in ever photograph whether it be the rule of thirds, leading lines or a frame within a frame. The camera was set to over-expose by about 1/3 with a slight exposure vignette around the corners, (pretty neat that one can get that much control with “just a cell phone camera”).

What do you see? What does this photo do to you? Discuss. Narrate. Brainstorm. That’s what this is about.
