Week 02/52 “Nail” – Selection

Did not have much time to shoot this week due to work. So the choices were few. But in the end, the photo selected happened towards the end of my photo hunt today!

Pigeons are assholes – Perth

An alternative image for this week. A pigeon smashing and trying to pretty much break the neck of this other white pigeon to steal its bread. Brutal. Who knew they could be so aggressive.

Pigeon Nail – Perth

Straight to the point here. A nail of a pigeon.

Grip – Perth

From the initial post of the week. I was quite happy with this one as well. Minimal and obscure.

Busted – Fremantle

Just as I was going in the station, a scene which I initially wrote down as a potential concept was right in front of me. Sometimes the universe just gives you things 🙂 I took three frames of the scene and opted to choose the one shot from the back  as shown on the featured image as it was cleaner and had a more minimalist story and aesthetic. I also like the gestures and expressions of the officers. The writing on the back of the guy’s black shirt is also a bonus.

But I could have really gone either way. Shooting different angles and compositions, adds a whole level of complexity and justifications when choosing. Initially I thought the composition from the side when looking at it through the ricoh’s lcd. However one’s you see it on the big screen, in lightroom, you see alot more detail.

Which frame do you guys prefer?

 

 

Week 02 – Nail

Random word generator has gifted me with the word “nail” for this week.

Initial thoughts on how I could approach this theme out in the street.

  1. Focusing on alot of hands to show nails. Need to get super close
  2. Using nails (the once you hammer) as a foreground element for some juxtapositions.
  3. Hang out with bouncers in nightclubs and wait until they kick someone drunk out
  4. Police arresting someone.
  5. A crucifixion

Should be an interesting .
