Wedding series- Afrobeat

These guys seem to be around every wedding reception in Lagos. Encircling their victims, drumming and singing praises until money is given. I normally ignore them till they move to the next, but didn't seem to work on this occasion. Decided to return the favour…snap snap

Creative aspect
I really likey this composition,
Technical aspect
Nah, something not right! Just looked at ure camera setting to confirm: these questions need an anwer!

Q. sunny day = low Iso, but ure high shutter speed 1/750s should have froze everthing but it didn't, why?

A. very shallow depth of field, why again? F 2.8, was this necessary? as ure not playing with any such factors in the pictur above.

Conclusion.

I would take a creative person over a technical oriented person anyday... technical stuff can be learnt.

Start learning more about ure camera, and u'll get the best out of ure creative mind!

Welcome to Skeetown, opps... I meant to say Shutterchance smile
debola: hmmm...not sure about most of this.

idleye says ... well Mista Skee has said it all. The blurred fingers are only cos of the DOF. Stop your lense down to f5.6 in daylight at least.
In fact judging by the light (and shutter speed!) you had at least 5 stops to play with, so your aperture could have been f8 or f11 and the shutterspeed would still be around 1/250th!
And your ISO (must of been 3200!!)
Nice idea, nice try - now go out and do it again. ;-}
PS Hi and welcome to the chancy shutters.

Welcome to shutterchance. Listen to Mista Skee he knows his sh**. I realize this after only a week. very idea for the image. Like Skee said the technical stuff can be learned. A book that was helpful to me that I have read through three times in the past year is Understanding Exposure by Bryan Petersen. He stresses not correct exposure but Creatively Correct exposure which is what Skee is getting at. Keep at it and once again welcome
debola: thanks matt
