Im Gegensatz zu Hamburg war das Myfest in diesem Jahr in Berlin friedlich und zum Teil voller Liebe. Zeugnis davon diese Aufnahme. Ich liebe das Motiv, die Menschen drum herum und vor allem die Farben, die ich nur gering in der Nachbearbeitung noch verstärkt habe, die aber eigentlich so aus der Kamera kamen.

Taken last night during the same walk as my previous picture "The Hurry and the Harm"

this yarrow is somehow reblooming in November maybe as a tribute to all our service men which I am proud to say my son is one of them :)

Nikon D4, Nikkor 85mm f1.4G. Lighting: SB-800 withc CTO gel into my favourite ebay umbrella softbox (reflective, not shoot-through one), model left and below. Triggered with SU-800.


You wont believe this, D4 and 85mm 1.4 still gives front-focus when camera uses AF-assist red lamp from SU-800, like it was on D700 with G lenses. Weird.

Winner First Place Contest 16 - LOW KEY / HIGH KEY - The Dark Side of the Light . Thank you !



Taken tonight walking back from dinner and drinks with some friends out in the Plateau neighbourhood of Montreal.


Having lived in this area 10+ years ago, I've always felt at home in the Plateau and am often drawn to walk the streets. I especially love soaking in the nostalgia.


For the visitor to Montreal, the Plateau is a must. It houses the best restaurants, bars and shops in town, combined with a residential charm.

Got a bit of good news today - I’ve been shortlisted for the Irish Times Amateur Photographer of the Year. Also got two photos nominated for the Monochrome Category: this and Reach Me By Chairoplane. There was only 15 shortlisted, so fairly stoked.


Passers-by reflecting on passing by Trinity College Dublin.


This is/was one of my two images included in the dublinr photographic exhibition on in the joinery gallery, Arbour Hill, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. The show is being run by group we've set up called dublens and finishes on Sunday 9 November 2008.

The photo is interesting as it confronts the way we scan or read an image. For example what is perceived as a cloud in the sky is actually a yellow parking line along the road. You'll need to turn your viewing device upside down to see what I mean! Why monochrome? Well some images can be improved by stripping away the colour as it can be too distracting and cluttered and this is one of them. It makes it much more stark allowing the silhouetted figures to become more prominent.

I am now on Twitter at @TJScottPictures -!/TJScottPictures - and would love to have you follow me.

I am not at all a people and a street photographer, It simply scares me to shoot, as if am spraying bullets on them :D

jokes apart , this place will seriously give you some moments to shoot street and people pics... The fushimi inari shrine in kyoto..

The 1000 vermilion tori gates are just amazing. And whats more amazing is to see myriad people walking through them , The light through the gates in shreds looks beautiful and the Japanese letters printed on the gates add a lot to them ..

heres one such monochrome pic from the amazing place ...

~~~ Flower Noir~~~


What evil lurks in the heart of a flower?


What dark secrets are held in the softness of a scented stamen?


What whispers congeal in the dew clinging to a silken petal?


What strange notions evolve within the confines of a reedy stalk?




A friend of mine, who has left Flickr for a while, is perfecting his "film noir" still shot style.


So, I thought I'd brighten (er, darken) his day with this image.


Film noir (French term for "black film) has its roots in German Expressionism. This cinematic style was hugely popular in Hollywood in the 1940s and 1950s.


RKO Studios kicked off film noir in 1940, with a movie called, "Stranger on the Third Floor." And, in 1958, Orson Welles delivered a "Touch of Evil," the film that put an end to the dark genre.


These sleek and gritty cinematic expressions were usually crime dramas, with morally questionable heroes, heroines, and bad guys; characters whose desperate desires drove them to deadly acts.


That film noir movies were all B-movies, simply isn't true. A great example is, "The Postman Always Rings Twice." Not the newer version with Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange (although that is one dark and intriguing film).


If you are a fan of the film noir style, here is an outstanding essay by Eddie Muller.


So, Richard, this one is for you. Enjoy your dark quest! Keep those whites hot, and those shadows murky, my friend!


And keep an eye out for those morally-bereft flowers with evil in their heart.

Taken using a Canon AE-1 film camera walking Dunsmuir street in Vancouver.


This building has been abandoned and boarded for about a year now, likely to be torn down in the near future.

Shot from the top of Mont Royal overlooking Rue de la Montagne in Montreal. Taken with an infrared filter. Adjusted the contract and structure of the image but preserved the natural grain finish that came with the shot.

Hehe, well he was! I'm starting to take pics, and notice the hat...left, right, up, down, resize...we finally decided to leave it off. Then the tie...on, then off, then back on again. Eyes...a gorgeous blue, but shifting left than right...


Seriously, the squirelliest shoot ever. But dang if the results didn't come out rather impressive. I was going to do this in black and white, but it lacked the punch of the color shot, so I left it.


And...say it with viewed bigger.

Work made for the CONTEST #10 - Noir Style - The Dark Side of the Light :


1949. Spying had it's downside and waiting in the cold and dark was one them. So why this life? What moment of madness led me to this? I can scarcely remember if I was to be truthful. One thing lead to another and the next thing I knew I'd obtained information. Important information. Was I doing the right thing by passing it on? The longer I stood here waiting the more I thought not. is now available to view. It's the second in the series.
