Geometric explorations

September 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

I like exploring themes in photography, this one in particular being geometric.

I saw this image while walking in Disneyland California Adventure.

Lonely

The image of the popcorn all alone in the frame just looked so…sad. And I love the break in the geometric pattern.

Canon Powershot SD780, which is apparently a popular little camera.

And of course I look for geometric patterns in nature.

Oat-3

This shot is a similar composition to the above popcorn photo. I really like breaking the monotony of color/pattern with a pop of color in the lower third of the photo.

Shot with Canon 5D Mark 2, Tamron 90mm macro lens, f/5.0 at 1/1600, ISO 200.

When the moment strikes

September 6, 2010 § 4 Comments

Boy am I happy that I a) had my iPhone camera with me and that b) I made this image when I did:

Broken

Edited in the iPhone 3GS using Photogene and Best Camera apps. Ambient lighting only.

I walked by this image while running some errands one weekend. Something about it spoke to me, and for a split-second I thought, “Oh I’ll grab it on the way back to my car.” But then I dropped my shopping bag, took out my iPhone –This image screamed best Camera App– and grabbed a shot or two.

On my way back to my car, the shopping center security guard had two teenage (or tweenage) skateboarders off to the side of the low wall the broken skateboard was sitting on, and my subject –gasp!– on the ground.

This image reminds me to stop saying, “I’ll get that later”. There might not be a later, no matter the subject matter.

Which do you like better?

It was recently suggested to me to rotate an image from the 3rd Annual Scott Kelby Photo Walk at the Venice Canals, CA. My response was, “But I like it this way better.”

However, I thought about it again and rotated it. Now leave it up to you, my faithful readers, to tell me which image you like better and why.

The original image:

Venice-1

And its rotation:

Venice-1 Rotation

Go!
