OVB's photo post: challenge #2
Really looking for these six things since the new challenge was introduced yesterday: red, yellow, blue---and square, circle, triangle. I've got some ideas... but until then:
Saw this tonight when partying post-grub out on the lanai with some guests. Just a glass of Armagnac with a box of little Romeo y Julieta Habanos Clubs and a red-glass candle so we cold see what the **** we were doing. But thought
the glowing red, yellow, and shapes looked cool and fairly appropriate so grabbed the camera hoping to share.
1/5sec, f4.5, ISO-800, 14-42mm kit lens, and a slight crop. No other adjustments.
*edit* Replaced with cropped version, 1/31/08.
Sitting at my office desk when the challenge was named these tacks were the first thing seen, followed by some sorta Brothers Quay-ish daydream of them coming to life.:ccat: So thought I'd rig up a little something on the kitchen counter one rainy evening and screw around with 'em. They are kinda strange looking little things.... like chess characters with a end that means business. Couldn't quite get what I'd imagined before calling it a night, but here's a few anyway:
Bought the velvet, and a cheapo clamp light from teh drug store. Also used my 500W halogen work-light on a stool back to the left. A big icy vodka-tonic and some STS9 helped. :music: Pretty fun.
And two similar looks at a cool Japanese matchbox that landed in my hand the same day the that challenge #2 was named. I liked the cropped version graphically, but you can't tell what it is so I added both.
It was a TERRIBLY glaring day and the background was naturally blown out, so thought I'd leave it as is to keep a contrasty look and accentuate the colors. Has that kinda graphicky look that I seem to lean towards. And as mentioned I couldn't manage the long exposure ValleyFan got, so had to take three and do some fiddling.
In case anyone's interested, it was ISO100; f8; 1/100; 40-150mm kit lens.
The Brothers Yangban....
are laughing with you.
Korean mask. Going for the yellow in the first one, and added a little red and blue plastic for the second. Just some hand-held goofiness, and no major adjustments.
and a few minutes later... with jet ascending against the backdrop.

Losing a bit of color and vibrancy somewhere between iPhoto, hosting, and post. Not exactly sure how to get it here in the best condition. Suggestions?
