      The top lighting adds some cool shadows to this image and helps really sell a mood of on the job. His race is rock sharp and kinda pulls the focus off the camera which also helps push the reality of this more and more.

      His attention into his camera and not yours is what makes this 100% work...if his eyes and attention were anywhere else I think you lose the viewer...you are pulled in and this makes you wonder what he is filming and where are we?

      Normally, I don't like too much shadow on the face, but I think it works very well here because of the atmosphere and lighting you have. The tones and focus are absolutely beautiful, as well. Nice work on that!! I actually really like the cigarette in his hand, even though it's out of focus. I think it adds to the mood you're trying to set. The only thing I don't really like is the busy background.

      Nice work, though. (:

      faved!!*
      excellent point of view. i love seeing photographers taking pictres, videographers with their cameras in hand, makeup artists applying makeup to their clients, poets writing, painters paiting, etc.
      I've always been a huge fan of watching an artist at work.. because that is when the magic happens. It's almost like a 'behind the scenes'. They are going somewhere in their mind, often somewhere that most people will never know. They see the product for their masterpiece before they begin, and they see it much differently than your or I do.. just as you would see your photo subject different than I would see them if I were photographing them also.

      I dunno it's just so neat to me..

      I love the B&w. fantastic detail. great lighting
      overalll i just looove this!!

      I like this picture a lot. My eye was immediately drawn the the cameraman and not to the camera itself, which surprised me since the equipment has such a large physical presence in the shot. So, great job on that. I agree that the shadow over his face really works well in this image to create a "feel" as does the darkness and monochrome color you've chosen.

      If you could blur the background a little more, especially in the ceiling area, or clone them out completely to clean it up I think the image would be more powerful. As it stands I do find those things a little distracting. Maybe it's because they are large enough for your vision to register but your mind can't comprehend them either because unidentifiable or because they don't seem to be truly part of the scene.

      Thanks for all the comments everybody. As always, a great help and always interesting to discover, to the photographer's surprise, what people do and don't like about a photo.

      I quite like the light contrast, but the picture itself is not very inspiring.

      Deleted, sorry!

      I think there are too many deep shadows in this. The band of shadow across the cameraman's eyes is, to me, a fatal flaw. To me, a lot of the most interesting shots involve emotion and you can see most people's expressions in their eyes. Because you can't see his eyes, this is just someone operating a large camera. The composition is nice and I like how it is put together, but it really doesn't evoke any emotions.
