Hands Perspective Technique

May I Give you a hand? The true is that I've got many! hehe

See Marjorie's attempt by clicking: here [photoblog.com] and Amir's by clicking here [photoblog.com]

This shot shouldn't be posted with the theme, because it is a coin and not a hand. The truth is that I've been not showing or saying marjorie I've received her coin which she had photographed here [photoblog.com], for a while! marjorie it has been almost 3 weeks since i've received your coin, but I wanted to make the surprise and include it on this post!
Thank you so much, all the coins were so beautiful and my collection now has a new shine! thanks once again :)

Absolutely extraordinary! What wonderful focus and the lighting is just perfect! I like how it bounces off the coin and brings the attention to the finger tips in #1. The second one is very creative and such a fun edit, the hands on the fingers in my opinion need just a little tweak to blend them with the larger hand. Was it was intentional to have them a lighter shade?

Great shopping Ricky, or did you find a creature with this appendage. Wouldn't it be great to have so many hands some days? The hand holding the coin has wonderful DOF in the swirls of the fingerprint.

I really like the detail one can see from the ridges of the fingertips... Its funny, even though the coin is really bright and beautifully shined, my eyes seem to wander back to the fingertips and how the light highlights the ridges of the skin......beautifully captured detail!! this hand, to me, has such an interesting story Ricky.. Extra cool second shot as well, very creative!!

Well I like them both. As you are both photographers with a heart, the comparison of the two posts says quite a lot about the photographers. Ricky's are a young man's shots - witty, a technical tour de force and fairly easy to take in. Marjorie's is a woman's capture - more inward focused, harder to identify with precision, gentler certainly (and I'm not being sexist), but possibly a little darker.

A distant almost-relative of mine was an almost famous photographer in the 50s who made studies of people's hands. Her exhibits were organised by trade; a baker's hands, an orchestra conductor's, a nurse's, a plumbers. Alas, I was too young when I last saw them to appreciate them now, but thank you both for this lovely, interesting, compassionate comparative study.

(I'm lazy, so I'll just copy and paste the same comment in Ricky's post.)
