Hello Louis
In reply to l_objectif, May 31, 2012

Hi Louis,

Nice engaging series of this parade. My favorites would be the row of soldiers you have photographed standing in front of you, the two soldiers having a conversation and in between the bus graphics and the last one of the kiss which provides to the whole scene a scent of a long long time gone now.

Cheers,

Tibor

Thanks very much, dear friend. I like shooting people during an event, but rarely the event, itself, interests me. People are real even if they are playing a part and this is what I try to find if I can!...

The last shot was really more fun than anything else. the guy on the left was washing (or maybe watering because of the great heath) the statute but I could not shoot him in action because he was moving so fast!

Kind Regards,

Thank you so much, dear Hugues.

This one is also one of my favorite because I found it very comical to see the "Boss" walking in front with her ambrella to protect herslf from the sun with her "Students" following her in their costumes!... It reminded me of the old British movies with those wonderful actresses like Debora Kerr that we don't have anynore! They are passing in front of an outdoorc toilet!

With warm regards,

Hi Louis,

this one is my favorite - he looks like he's seen real combat just earlier in the day. The differently lit stripings of the grass enhance the camo effect of the uniforms, too, so it's one coherent blending-in. An authentic capture, very nice.

Much appreciated, thanks!

This guy looked as if he was just out of a war movie. With his shoes off, he looked like a warrior resting! I just could't get awat without shooting him! And of course, as you mentioned, his uniform was so matching with the light and shade on the ground!...

Kind Regards,

Merci infiniment, cher Emile!

It took me a few shots and a long wait to have the last shot. That guy was washing them and moving so fast around that it was very hard to shoot anything! Finally, I could get one shot more or less right!

Cordialement,

My dear friend, Jean-Luc; thanks so much for your kind and positive feedback. It becomes quiiet boring to shoot the same people year after year; so, it is good to try having a little fun !

All the best,

Louis, Just catching up on threads I have missed. Well done (as I have come to expect!). The third is my favorite. Is that "thumbs up" for you? You caught the sparkle/glow in that young lady.

Much appreciated; thanks for your visit and kind comments.

As for that thumbs up, I noticed that when I was looking the shots on my computer. I am not sure if it was for me, although it seems she is looking at the camera!... Maybe she liked the look of DLux5!?

Best Regards,

Actors?
In reply to l_objectif, Jun 4, 2012

I like the images very much. I'm puzzled by your referring to the subjects as "actors." Did you mean participants, or people of action, or were some of them actually actors?

Thank you for posting.

Having worked as an actor myself, I was referring to them as characters of the Parade that I was the main event"!

I am giving more explanations in the following links, where I am also using the expression "back-stage"!
