fridge bridge and a dirt track

    Newer Older

    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 ;)

      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 :)

      mmmm... suppose it also depends on the subject matter. also, what you are trying to achieve...(or photograph)

      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

      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 :)

      loving this shot, you're always finding all that trash to photograph aren't you?

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

      Makes one wonder (preceded by the first photo in time) what escaped from cryogenic hibernation.

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