Gone Quiet

Digital Switchover

Posted on Thu 29th Jun, 2006, 6:23pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/100, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 26th June 2006, 1:22pm,

It's amazing how few people bat an eyelid at a fully grown man lying flat on his belly in the middle of the pavement, taking photos of discarded hi-fi equipment. Even the builders who were renovating the house opposite didn't say anything.

This shot is the first of a pair and when I took it, I thought this would end up being my favourite but after processing I think I prefer the other one, which will go up tomorrow.

Nice one Jamey, I like the DOF and the subject is pretty cool too :D

great subject and composition... not sure on the colours (don't know whether this is down to post processing or not tho)... looking forward to the next one tho... PS I usually get quite a few looks when i'm in a funny photographer stance... maybe you just have ninja powers and good camo?

So odd and weird but nice at the same time. The way the cassette player stands out should be odd but it all fits together well, I like it.

Dang Jamey.. Now that is taking it back. Good shot!

Jamey, Thu 29th Jun, 2006, 7:03pm
JD - I've definitely got a lot of Camo ;)

Brilliant. Would suit an album cover to a tee (tea? whatever) Its just pure simplistic class.

Like this a lot. The composition is nice and simple. Uncluttered. And the processing is up to your usual high level. Nice one.

Aye good shot Jamey, not so sure about the concrete thing on the far right though its not a major "disturbance" to the image but its just "there" for me when it shouldn't be. Good solid processing work though and a great use of the 50mm.

That's really weird and here is me lying down on the grass taking a photo of a rosemary bush and I get stopped and question about what I'm doing. Weird world init! Jamey, what was your inspiration when you took this shot and why do you like it? (Not that I don't I just don't see it's beauty and what to see and learn something here)

Super shot.

Jamey, Fri 30th Jun, 2006, 2:16pm
Sys - you're dead right, that concrete thing's bloody annoying and one of the reasons why I prefer the other shot (which I'll be posting later today) over this one. I tried a few crops but none of them gave me the right amount of space around the tape deck, and cloning it would've been a huge pain in the ass... Jide - I don't really know what my inspiration was. I don't really like nature shots much and stuff like this is kinda my alternative. Human nature shots, type thing. I confess I was already imagining the processed version while I shot these photos.
