Joy by Ciril Joy by Ciril
does anyone have a better idea for a title?

this picture was taken in corsica. there is no special story inside...just children...
but there is a story "outside".
i took these little ones in a town called Sartene. It is a beautiful town with so many motives.... there were so many kids playing and jumping around. well there are many tehniques for taking shots of children. first of all i took some "hidden" shots. so that they did not notice me. but i am always noticed sooner or later... only sometimes if i have luck people dont notice me...
anyway when they saw my shooting, they turned their mood at once. they became very shy and serious.
well that didnt stop me.... i tried to get trust.... so i showed them few photos on a LCD... and when they saw those pictures of them... they became so crazy happy... they wanted me to take pictures.... they were asking me to take pictures of them in so many ways... it was a lot of fun. i had like a real photo session hehe...

and that is why i like this photo so much. i appreciate it because i got trust from these little ones... and i just had so much fun...

I really like the photo. And i really admire your ability to gain trust from these children... I have difficulty doing that T.T
dunno whether it's because i look like a bad guy or the children in malaysia are way too shy once they notice me.

yes you are right.... it can be a problem to take pictures of children...because of the parents.
but i would normally ask...well it depends on a situation.

i still feel like a child...i am 17 so i think that i have less problem with that.

Amazing shot! It makes me wishing to be a kid again... but alas.. it's to late :P

Alternative titles:
- Wild boys (ok they're not so wild) :P
- Catch my Icecream if you can (sounds a bit silly?) ^^;
- "Ice-cream" Share the fun... (It's ORIGINAL! It's NOT stolen! honest!...) ^^;

Oh dear... it's tea time! :omfg:

Great photo.. It really expresses joy of that kids. It is in Corsica? Wow.. you have to really travel a lot... I'll be happy when I'll go on trip to Ireland, where I'll go next summer... It looks that you haven't stress about models... it's cool

young kids are always so free from all that social shit which permits adults (and often teenagers) to act freely. you've been a witness of a one-act comedy directly on the street.....that makes me wanna write that you are lucky or talented or bla bla bla, but u already kno it and i dont want to start some kind of kliche :D

actually i was learning how to make a first step to people you want to take picture of. you must not have any prejudices...you have to be open... i mean you have to get on their level. you have to mate them trust you... sometimes it is very difficult. i am still learning and i think i will be learning to the end of my life...

thanks. :)

i guess you did this great capture with your 300D isnīt it? but it looks like youīve shot it with film, cause of the grain looks so real, i normally donīt like the digital grain, but this one looks great!

i used iso 800 or 1600 i think... and that is why there is so much noise/grain.
that is becuase there was not much light left...
thanks. ;)

hmmm...i try to donīt use higher iso than 400 at my 10D, cause i donīt like the look...but sometimes thereīs no other way :)
