Intimidate by IsacGoulart Intimidate by IsacGoulart
Curtis in archery class for Phys.Ed. in high school..

don't worry.. nobody got hurt... he held on pretty well to that arrow... but it was a bit scary standing in front of him to shoot this photo.

edit: square crop

Love the colors, the focus...you made an unoriginal concept extremely unique and vividly artistic, really beautiful :)
The only thing that bothers me about this is the guy in the background, which I didn't notice at first, though upon a second look he jumped out at me lol

Yikes. I shoot recurve and seeing this scares the crap out of me. Very arresting idea for a shot, and I'm glad you survived it!

I know I've commented on the original photo, but I am still in total amazement of how this photo looks.

The motion blur really makes me feel as if he keeps coming closer at me and my heart never fails to beat any more faster whenever I look at this :XD:

Very nice picture, can I use this as a background for this quote "An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great."

I love how the image radiates out from the archer, making him the source of power in this relationship.

Ballsy cameraman.

Standing in front of minor with a drawn bow is just about the last thing on my to-do list. With a recurve no less...

With pictures like this, do yourself a favor and use a remote mount if possible. In the gun world, you never point a gun even vaguely in the direction of anything you aren't willing to kill or destroy. It may only be a practice bow with target arrows, but it's still plenty capable of ruining your day if he got bumped, had a hand cramp, or any of the other myriad things that could cause that arrow to be loosed, aimed directly at you from point blank range.

It's an awesome shot, but there are ways to get it without putting yourself in harm's way.

this is an awesome photo for several reason...
the 'supposed danger'
the perspective
the focus
the b/g

too bad there are two magor faults from an archery correctness...
arrow is on wrong side of bow
he is clenching the string in his fist...

As an archer, I simply adore this shot. As a photographer, I applaud you. As a father, I commend you for your love of your child, who, having you at his mercy, spared you. Wise child.
