Practical Photography

Trying new things!

 

As I think I have already mentioned, I really enjoy photography so I took the chance today take some images after the rain to try and capture what I felt it was like, the uniqueness of the state of the world after the rain. This is only a small attempt. I wanted to capture beautiful images that last less than a second and images of the after math of th rain fall.

 

I decided to try using a Macro lens to get this effect as I have a Teflon telfocal lens that also will do macro shots.

 

The following images are what I have taken:

My favorite image is called Shadow Drop because you can not only see the droplet of water beginning its decent but you can also see the shadow created by it on the wall behind it. I love the way I have been able to focus on the droplet but without losing the texture of the wall behind. The fact that it leans of centre I have found to be both a distraction from the image and a blessing as it make it less generic.

 

The image out of this group that I dislike the most is Berry Drip as I wanted to focus better on the Berry’s and the water cascading off of them as at this time it had started to spit but I did not really get that affect.

 

Water is so beautiful to take photographs of as its reflective surface adds a whole nother dimension to the image.

 

 

  

 

It’s Not Always Perfect

  

I want to use this blog to show my development, not only in my thought process but also in  my practical development, sometimes people need to see that it’s a battle to get just  few shots sometime, especially when you are working with things you can not control – drips for example.  I think I need to continue experimenting and researching different techniques as I feel I have been given very little technical skill or guidance from the university in terms of photography, interested in video and they are there, skills instructions at the ready but photogrpahy…yeah right, keep on swimming.

 

The following image did not quite meet the standard I was looking for or did not display what I wanted them too, in some cases I am not to sure why but I also think I know!

Outside01, Charlotte Gunn, Nov 2009, This image has lost some of its focus whilst I was trying to capture the effect of the rain on the tree in the light.

Leaf, Charlotte Gunn, Nov 2009. I could not get the light right at first but later managed this kind of shot as I have already displayed.

Dripping Bin, Charlotte Gunn, Nov 2009.

Dripping Bin, Charlotte Gunn, Nov 2009. I did not get in close enough to get the dripping effect later found in other places.

 

 

I know I need to concentrate on the sound work I am currently constructing but I keep being drawn to my photography becauase I want to improve and find new things. It’s also something I can pick up and put down with confidence. I feel as if I a being pulled with it towards my actual final project, just got to find inspiration.
