26-05-10 II The Weight Of All Those Willing Words

222/365 So I can't decide which of these is best, so decide for me? Thanks :)

Gah I need to revise but I can't concentrate, french and chemistry tomorrow as well...English and spanish went alright today, so at least that's 2/6 over with.


I wish these had come out a bit better, but it was getting late and I really need to try and revise.

    beautiful bethan! what a brilliant idea! love the tones as always....i like both of them. but if really really forced, probably the one with the bk opening! this is good too.....excellent capture. really cool idea.

  • Andrew Evans 5y

    how on earth did you get the focus so good!? it looks like you must have thrown the books to time with the self timer! this is so amazing!

    Andrew Evans Haha well it was difficult with a manual lens, let me tell you :)
    Basically I focused on a tree that's just out of shot on the left, then panned the camera right and put it on self timer. Then I ran so that I was parallel with the tree I focused on, and threw the books so they fell in line with the tree - and luckily in the plane of focus :)
    Thanks all :D

    Difficult to decide. Both are great. In the picture with just the red book I like that it opens. Anyhow I like this a little bit more. It gives the impression that more books will follow - a book-rain.
