fridge bridge and a dirt track

For a planned show in 2007 taken in the late 80's early 90's


fwiw these are *work prints* which means, they will look very different by the time they hit the wall in 2007 - in subtle photographic ways of course ;)

    » @ yeled, yeh it's funny you know I went through stages in those days, playing around with dof, these days when I whip out the 5x4, it's f64 all the way baby :D

    @ digiboy-in-nippon, thank god is all I say :D

    stu, i find the 6x6 format easier to compose than the 35mm format.

    » that's intersting chris, a lot of folks can't deal with the "lack of tension" the square provides :)
  • digiboy84 9y

    mmmm... suppose it also depends on the subject matter. also, what you are trying to achieve...(or photograph)
  • Charlie Allom PRO 9y

    @stu, yep, i think it would be interesting to go back to focus etc.. as trite as it may seem sometimes, you've used it reallly well here!
  • Gilfer 9y

    Great shot. There's so much going on here, but it doesn't feel cluttered or overwhelming.

    I am a bit in with didgiboy. I really enjoy composing square images & back in the 80's it was my format of choice. In the last 2 weeks since I decided 'compose' square shots & NOT ZOOM things have really improved! Moving your body not your lens must be endemic now every digi has a zoom.

    Do you gaffer the zoom barrel on the students cameras s2art?

    this series gets more interesting with every picture and i'm not really sure if this could be true - but i think a square 'says it' somehow if it's taken 'direct' as square or in a later postprocessing
    thisone is like a statement about zivilisation and modern living for me - i like it very much

    » sutiably chuffed I am with the response here.

    gilfer thanks, composition can make or break an image in an instant

    kent, I like your thinking there gaffer and zooms :D

    artelisa thanks as alwys, these are all shot as square images using an old medium format camera I bought as a student, the whole series I hope says something about modern civilisation - I hope :)

    Opps; I meant (& you read my intent s2) Moving the LENS/Focal Length not their BODY must now be...

    loving this shot, you're always finding all that trash to photograph aren't you?
  • James Hague PRO 9y

    This is a wondrous shot: the bright sky, the powerlines, the barbed wire, the leaves against the fridge. Wow.
  • dmcd 9y

    Makes one wonder (preceded by the first photo in time) what escaped from cryogenic hibernation.
  • s2art PRO 9y

    » @ toughlove, yes where would we be as photographers, without the detritus of life ;)

    @ Joi de Vivre, glad you find it so pleasing, it's least I can do after you sharing all your wonderful images :)
