    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    It means that you proved the naysayers wrong.

    They look good Marko.

    Oh, in case you didn't know, in some parts of the world, they call "ketchup" catsup or katsup .

    Well done Marko. And remarkably well done by a "Non profesional camera"

    The photos have a very distinctive look, not one that is perhaps desirable for many situations/subjects but actually suits this one very well IMHO. Aspects of the XA that would be considered shortcomings in many situations (distortion, flare, exposure inaccuracies) haven't done any harm here. I have to say that the results are considerably better than I'd have expected (but keep hold of the Nikon!)

    My favourites were 2, 8 and (if the chap in the foreground is the front-man or leader) 15.

    The decor of the location rather reminded me of home!

    Best wishes,

    Steve

    I particularly like the broken glass shots - that "idea" would certainly have been worthy of some more exploration.

    As mentioned by someone else, reflectors would help - sometimes just to bounce some light into the shadows, sometimes also to warm things up a tad (with a gold reflector for example).

    BTW, did anyone ever make a lens hood / shade for the XAs?

    Marko- JOB WELL DONE!!! I'm glad you took the XA for this shoot . Ithink if you had used the Nikon you would have been too encumbered. Your location dictated the use of lighter, more flexible gear. IMHO the stairwell shot gets the nod for best shot,it has a very etherial quality,very reminisent of some '60s album cover work. Keep up the good work, and gowith your gut instinct, you have raw talent, and and with practice, you will have a long career.

    Any camera is "professional" if it captures the right shot. EX-UPI photographer Jerry Soloway was waiting for a rescued New Jersey kidnap victim to come out of her house with her husband. She came out, everyone else got their pictures, they lowered their cameras and walked away. She then put her head down on her husbands shoulder and Jerry got the front page shot on Tri-x with his XA.
