ice cream man and his cartsteemCreated with Sketch.

A shot of the lonely ice cream man and his cart I took after the New Year fair. Actually I was leaving and already packed the camera and shit.... I didnt intend to capture him, but suddenly I stopped, unholstered the camera and did a few quick snapshots. I did it mostly for the lighting, I had a feeling it might come out well -- and it did.

This really looks like a brilliant on the black velvet, isnt it? Took no efforts from me, just point and click. And voyla! Well, maybe I am a bit exaggerating here. Have a look at my 1st click:

Doesn't look the same good, right? One needed not just point and click, but also choose the proper angle, and distance, to get the good result. Ok, thanks for stopping by, and paying attention, my friends. I appreciate your comments.

The photos are very good @qwerrie, and I like the first one most. It reminds me on a poster of a movie, especially the iceman looks so familiar to me, but I cannot remember, which movie I am thinking of. The lighting is also great in both shots.

good lighting is the key to a good capture. you totally aware of it, judging by your pictures. I am on that stage when I aware of it, can use the benefits of it (when I see a good ligh), can cancel shooting if the light is poor, but I still cant manage a good light myself (no flash, no externals etc). this is still beyond my level.

this time, I just used what I noticed, what I was given by random.
thanks for stopping by!

I love the lighting you used, although you had no other choice. It matches wonderful to the whole scene.

Photographing with flash? I hate it and 99 percent I let the flash in auto mode / TTL.

99% flash in auto mode? my flash usage is about zero percent :))))
but lamps is another deal. that is essential help.

I think I have used the flash about 2 or three times this year, and then 99% in auto mode ;)
I have a small LED light in my backpack, which I sometimes use when I make macro photos.

да, первая выглядит более живой))

ну как бы лицо видно... и выражение на нём. о чем вообще говорить :)
что то не видно твоих новогодних фоток украшенного неоном города. ты выбираешься вообще в центр? на Невском неописуемая красота. мне, правда, совсем не до неё...

С лицом в кадре вырисовывается сюжет, а без него просто скучная конструкция))
Я в центре не был уже 100 лет...вот думаю, будет посуше, надо выбраться по темноте, побродить.
А что у тебя за проблемы, я могу чем-то помочь?

навряд ли. разве что у тебя есть знакомые которым требуется честный и трудолюбивый сотрудник с ок знанием английского языка и в меру кривыми руками? который в принципе годен и к полиграфии, но хотел бы сменить ее на нечто более перспективное и менее потогонно-наколенное ... слишком много пожеланий, хех. в январе, чувствую, у меня будет дофига времени... =)

вот прям конкретных знакомых таких не скажу, но поискать и поспрашивать можно. Никогда не знаешь заранее, где и что выстрелит. Ты мне куда-нибудь скинь список своих умений и навыков. Для разговора с кем-то (если таковой состоится) нужны более конкретные данные.
Можно и поколдовать, хоть ты в это не веришь))
Я после баньки созрел на поспать, а ты чиркни что-то вроде резюме. Вдруг срастётся)
