Week 09 – Soft

Dropped the ball this week! One day to go. I thought I posted the theme of this week. I used a random word generator once again and got “Soft”.

I have been playing with shooting wide open and ofcourse shooting in “soft” morning and afternoon light.

Last chance tomorrow to get something. I am hoping a comic con event might give some interesting images.

Week 08/52 “Moving” – Selection

A number of different type of images resulted from shooting this week. From my usual geometric to something abit more lyrical. The shot of this week is one that started to grow on me. The combination of elements seems to just work. Interestingly enough most of the shots were taken from the pedestrian bridge where I shot my film project a couple of weeks back. Still amazed how many sort of images can be made in a 30m length location when one looks.

I feel three of the images this week (i seem to always do) are pretty much interchangeable for the top spot.

Flight

The project has highlighted some key areas to shoot. I’ve been shooting the pigeons quite abit and have started to come up with a series.

Played with panning aswell. Abit cliche I know but I just couldn’t help it.

Week 08 – Update

I have been enjoying shooting over the last couple of days in shutter priority  mode (typically 1/50s) at 100 ISO. You forget how movement adds another level of interest on an otherwise average image.

In saying that I also don’t want to just rely on this sort of trickery to make an interesting image without any sort of meaning/story.

Last day tomorrow.  I better hurry.

Week 08 – Moving

Theme for this week’s project 52 is moving.  Bring on slow shutter speeds and low ISO. I’ll be using the A6000 again as my Ricoh has been shipped to Melbourne for repairs. Didn’t realise how much slower and awkward it is compared to the Ricoh. I am highly considering an X100t when the prices start dropping.… Continue reading Week 08 – Moving

Week 07/52 “Weakness” – Selection

Pick for this week. As usual the close ones below. I could have interchange my number one pick with the guy with the binoculars. Shot abit of people on crutches and cast. Chose the shot above as I generally liked the composition, colour, lines and the way the man seems like he is about to fall.

On a sad unrelated note. My Ricoh GR broke 😦 Hopefully it is an easy inexpensive fix. The A6000 will have to do for this week.

Week 06/52 “Fringe” – Selection

A vertical selection this week. I could not go pass this shot from last night. I enjoy the non interaction of the people around the squatting cone head lady. She has seemingly blended in and has been successful hiding from her friends.  Perhaps not so peripheral with the binge drinking culture Australia has but I picked it for the humour and its simultaneous strangeness.

B Sides below are a mix of images captured from the fringe festival in Perth as well as people that live in the fringes of society ie, the homeless (a street photography cliche I know)

Fringe World

The word Fringe of course. Using the available light to illuminate the woman.

The Big Issue

Particularly like the juxtaposition of the man selling the big issue, which I took as the “fringe” subject, against the Rio Tinto signage on the building and the camera surveillance sign on the wall.

Down and Out

Came across this man on my way to get some groceries. I wish the government did more. For the life of me I do not understand why cities in Australia do not have public sanitary sort of facilities beyond the toilet.

Vagabonds

A man and his long time companion. The bag almost looks like it has obtained some human qualities over the years.

The Mannequins

Something about mannequins that are just freaky.

Gold Digger

Lady luck was on my side here.

Distance Gaze

I asked this man for his portrait and to my surprise he agreed. His distance gaze, and soft eyes to me shows vulnerability.  He did not talk much, his mind was somewhere else.
