Sitting On the Stairs
|[Normas para las notas] Notas del fotógrafo|
|This is a picture of Karla sitting on the stairs of the University of the Philippines Main Library. I used a Kodak BW400CN film and scanned the negative and did a little sharpening. I foused on her feet as she was having a conversation on the phone with her mom.|

Howdy Leander! Nice picture. Very funny shot. Cheers!
Composition here is good. The concentration of subject on the left, with the negative space and diagonal element of the steps on the right, works nicely.
The point of focus is ok I think, it's hard to tell without seeing any of the alternatives.
One thing - be careful when photographing limbs to avoid foreshortening or "end-on" angles if you can. Here, Karla's legs, and even her arm, look very short and thick because of the angle.
b&w was a good choice for this shot, because it makes us focus on shape and light - but it also emphasises that shortening effect.
Keep the shots coming!
