Out & about – for Trevellyn

My colleague ramon and I went to bastakiya and did some shooting expedition. There is a lot of activities around since it’s a weekend. It had an open market, a singer with his guitar playing on an open court and an art workshop for everyone. T’was a festive mood. Lucky us as there’s lot of photo ops. The place was worth a visit as always. I saw this kid and his dad having some fun on the canvas. His dad had a canon dSLR with him and was taking photos of the kid at work. I gestured to him if I may take as well and he obliged. Before we left he approached us and asked if we’re from the mags or something. We told him no and just a hobby. We promised him that we’ll email the shots to him later.

This is really nice portrait and great moment captured.
This kid is totally focus on his art-work.
Well composed shot.
Only remark would be a frame which is to big IMO.

This is great shot...jo
Very dramatic moment for this kid.
Good job..


Hi Ro,

Nice portrait. Nice balanced compositon and good low POV. Sharp focus on main subject and shallow DOF looks great. The soft light kept excellent detail in highlights (white T-shirt) and shadows (hairs). Very nice shot and TFS.
