comment What cloth patterns and colours should be preferred for clothes while shooting portraits in black and white?
This would be for photos with the person as the main subject.

comment How to interpret a histogram to know whether the photo is under or over exposed?
thanks about the pretty image but I request you to consider answering with reference to a general case.

you didn't show what is "balanced"?

comment How to show happiness in a playground without any human presence?
@BartArondson I would have already done it if I had it. But after taking the photo I realized that I had forgotten to put the SD card in the camera. The photo wasn't "saved".

comment How to photograph an adult and a child together such that the adult doesn't dominate the scene?
Thanks for your answer. Please explain this: In both photos the camera is square to the subjects I didn't understand what you meant here.

@rfusca Actually, I logged in here just now to say the same.

I realize I had asked a specific question on a subjective matter, but thanks for your description.

@forsvarir "you’re asking for specific guidance for subjective subjects." Alright, I understand. A better question would have been "how to achieve x composition in this picture". Thanks. I used to think that aggressive means kind of "attempting to start a fight"!

@jrista "I've examined many of your comments on 500px, and between there and here, to be blunt, you have a rather abrasive, aggressive and interrogatory approach to your search for "ideas"." Also, I think that you could have asked for my mail address for discussing behaviour patterns. To me it seems that this is a topic which should be discussed on the mails rather on the public threads.

@jrista "You have to develop that on your own," That's true for sure, but then why are people advised to read on the "Photographers's eye" kind of books? Isn't this all about sharing experiences on specific topics?

@jrista Well, yes, I remember I shouldn't have "demanded" the answer from mattdm in the previous thread. This is a voluntary forum of course.

@jrista Anyway, if you think this question is pointless, you can close it off for sure.

@jrista "Rockwell is a raging buffoon, puffed up on his own presumed excellence, completely devoid of artistic talent," And that is your very personal opinion and my opinion is different regarding him. I haven't taken his blog as a "rule". His blog has just given me a new way to think and persive a scene.

@jrista "you have a rather abrasive, aggressive and interrogatory approach" And you don't think that instead of issuing a statement and moving on, it'll be better if you tell me what do you call "aggressive" and how to frame it in a "polite" way? Cultural difference - I can't really make out what do English men find rude. I haven't called anyone names there. I try to use the word please often!

@jrista "That is clearly obvious in the way your questions are worded" My aim is to make the questions look "specific" (as required), and I can't do anything if that looks like asking for "rules". Not a native English speaker am I.
