I want to simply thank you guys for posting up all your photo taking thoughts.
Closest thing to taking a short class in up close Photography.
Really useful information in this conversation.
And not just ‘quick answers’. The comps and images give a lot of depth to your perspectives on the subject.
Now… that being said; I have a question or two for you.
(Not all) but many of the images(at least half) are images of BST yoyos. And the majority of those yoyos are ‘known’ shapes. They can easily be referenced by checking yoyo stores or Maker sites for more accurate, undistorted yoyo shapes, etc…
Many of the images you prolly don’t like are taken by any number of devices. By any number of guys that vary as much in Photo chops as they do in yoyo skill levels.
If a guy posts up and somewhat distorted image of a Wide Shutter; he is not trying to win a Photo contest. He is just showing you his particular Wide Shutter. His funny photos(s) May be amateur in nature. But he is trying to show or sell his yoyo. And most likely not trying to get somebody to hire him for a Photo Shoot.
Personally I like your information because if anybody actually pays attention; they will surely have a better handle on how to take and post up better images.
…But honestly; I think(think) most people are just going to use whatever is most convenient and fast for them(probably any cell phone available).
I don’t think many are going to live in fear of the Photo Police lecturing them on proper methods for more tasteful image results.
I enjoyed your lab work; regardless. I learned some useful stuff; no doubt.
