Discussion in 'General' started by The Mis', Oct 14, 2013.
Another three from the graveyard. This time from small cemetery in Mitcham:
Recently I attended the nude workshop...
We worked in 3+1 (3 photographers plus model) groups. We shared hair dresser and make up artist.
First we had to create a story, and then plan and make set of 3-5 pics that tells it. We had for that just two days - one day for all preparation and another for preparing model and taking pics.
It wasn't an easy task. Not for me anyway. And I didn't go any further than few candidates for the first picture of the set:
First two are different approach (frame and pp) to the same pic.
I learn a lot on the workshop. Most important I confirmed to myself that the nude photography isn't my my cup of tea.
I am not very happy with the pictures however, I'd appreciate your comments.
The Pro1 was a legend.
I have the Pro2 in hand, but will always remember the Pro1 as the camera that started it all for me.
Absolute modern classic.
I am sorry - forgot to mention that it was XT-1 with 18-55mm.
Last weekend I went to the Tower Hamlets and Kensal Green cemeteries. Those are the last two of the "magnificent seven" London cemeteries. Visited all of them with my camera and I am sure I will return there in the future.
It wasn't very photographic weather - very strong, contrast sun light, almost no clouds, blue sky like on the cheap postcards...
Here are few pics taken with XT-1 with 18-55 and 55-200 and:
and a blackbird:
Last weekend I went to the Bunhill Burial Ground but found nothing that caught my eye. So I started taking pictures of pigeons...
The first three surprised me a bit when I looked at them on the monitor. I didn't see in the viewfinder the second pigeon, which "acted" almost as the mirror reflection to my "model".
Romeo and Juliet
Another three from Brockley and Ladywell Cemetery:
Next few pics were taken in Hampstead Cemetery:
East Ham Jewish cemetery:
St mary magdalene's parish cemetery:
Paddington Old Cemetery:
I think that's enough for now...
Brighton: now it is a parking...
Barns Old Cemetery, probably one of the most forgotten places in UK:
next few are from Fulam Palace Road Cemetery:
Not far from the previous one - Streatham Cemetery:
Last few from Streatham Cemetery:
(I was looking for the best frame, narrowed selection to the four above, but still cannot choose... so here are all four)
Finally I got my X Pro 1 converted into a full spectrum camera.
Here are few first shots, I have been using 35 f/1.4 no-name IR 720nm filter and 10-24 f/4 with Cokin P007 89B.
West Norwood Cemetery
Tower Hamlets Cemetery
Yesterday in the Tate Modern, London:
P.S. If you can, I strongly recommend to see the "The radical eye" exhibition in Tate Modern. All those photographs are from Elton John's collection and you can see there original works by Man Ray, Edward Steichen, Edward Weston and many others.
THE RADICAL EYE: MODERNIST PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE SIR ELTON JOHN COLLECTION | Tate
These are the very first pictures I have taken with that kind of the filter - I think I need to learn a bit about it.
Kensal Green Cemetery, pics taken with X PRO 1 converted into full spectrum camera, with 10-24 f/4 and IR 590nm filter:
Impressive series. Very well done
Thank you Sir!
here are two more, These are taken in St Mary's Cemetery, just next to the Kensal Green Crematory:
Three pics from the open-air museum in Torun, Poland:
And one from the astronomical observatory.
