Another shot from over the Christmas period, this time in a street off Carnaby Street in London. I liked the bright boue of the bulbs against the sky.
Again shot with my iPhone, I’ve darkened the sky a bit in Photoshop, increased the vibrance and taken out any distracting street signs.
Forgot this one. The title pretty much sums it up.
I put it on orange card this time, using a bit of complementary colour , see what you think.
Well it’s Tuesday actually but I thought I’d shoehorn a New Order reference in thereto link to more abstract shots that are…..based on the colour blue!
The second one should probably give you a clue as to what I was shooting. I’ve also realised that I never actually talk about what I’ve done or how I did it- this is normally because I’m just experimenting and seeing what happens in terms of how the shots come out.
I’ve always been interested in macro but can’t stretch to a macro lens in terms of cost, so I bought some close up filters for £20 a while back. I keep them just to use on my kit lens, and this time I went the whole hog and stacked all 4 on the lens- a+10,+4,+2 and a +1. That creates a pretty shallow depth of field! It did give me some interesting shots though.
I used a table lamp to sidelight it on my kitchen table, with some blue card underneath it so that I could try and keep the colour constant. Then I used my limited Photoshop knowledge to increase the saturation and tint a bit.
Let me know what you think! ( And also what you think it is!)
Am still experimenting with abstracts.I really like the way you can make a story out of anything, even just stuff lying around the house- it really is all about colour and shape.
Had a go with it again earlier today,I like this one, I think it’s a very “restful” relaxing picture.
Let me know what you think!
