Minimalism : want to set the mood of introspection as you stand still and look ahead to a certain uncertainty . you will leave this life with nothing yet gaining a lot depending what you believe in.
(but please correct me if im way off topic)
I was looking through some archived photos tonight and decided to re-process these two (among others). I made these after buying some studio lights and wanted to see what I could do with the new equipment. Since they were an experiment, I figured I could share them here.
Was fortunate to find this tree on a hill just outside Montreal. Sun was setting behind me so i had to hurry to get in position for this long exposure.. after “jumping” a fence i struggled another ~50m waist height in the snow - not for sensitive viewers:) but for this pastel sunset it was worth it.
I have just uploaded my latest experiment with multiple exposure images to my portfolio and thought I'd share with the group.
This is the result of 13 images taken walking in an arc around the front of the tree on the left. Images are selectively layered, blended and masked in Photoshop.Through experimentation I am finding that attention...
A detail of one of the exhibit at the museum. First colour image was processed in LR to histogram tones. Later it was converted to BW. Touched up to boost the grey.
I like the colour contrast and also the contrast in BW. Unable to decide precedence. inviting all opinion.
I was out walking around in the snow when I noticed there was still a lone drop of water left on this blade of grass. I've always liked simplistic, minimalist shots that give a sort of fine art feel. Let me know what you think.
Took this on a very long exposure using 8 stop nd filter. In pse I inverted the colours. I love to create a surreal emotion in my work. Any thoughts please?
The light wasnt great this day so I thought it was the perfect time to try this technique. For a first attempt I'm really happy with how these turned out. Let me know if you've tried this before and if there are any tips or tricks you learned in the process.
Wooden Joint connector. I liked the visual complexity in the composition. As well as the grey tones.
Most of the time my clients are not interested in monochrome outputs but when they do it is so gratifying.
To my surprise I walked into the lobby of one of the firms I work for and they had this printed this image in very large format and installed on the wall behind the receptionist desk.
Made my day,
Today I created my very first digital pinhole camera and went on experimenting. This picture is actually 4 times me in a single exposure of 30". I used the test-function of my flash device (I won't even try to guess how old it is) to light my face 4 times.
A little editing was done.
Tried High key Processing. Had Discarded the frame earlier but this time eye saw something in it. Am ambiguous about processing of sea within the composition of grey tones. Also if to define the horizon.
Please help with your critical opinion for the image. Thanks.
Have tried to create an IR effect and make a feel of surrealism. The old farm hut I added the goblin for a bit of fun. Any ways I can improve on these?
Actually, the answer is yes. There's water back in the Tango's Frog Pond.
FWIW, I've been working a lot lately trying to develop (no pun intended) a stronger color sense. My sister tells me that much of my work seems to be B&W images in color, and I don't think that is a compliment.
I made these a couple of years ago in a local restaurant. I just liked the way the bright kitchen lights backlit the items on the shelves and the second shot gives a glimpse into the chaos in the "back of the house."
