This concludes this little series… of what was an old school petrol pump imported from France to Kenya in the 60’s it still works apparently.

If you liked a specific one then say.. i thought that bw was the best way to do this simple macro of the counter system.

Wall painting – Luke baker

By | Depth of field, Macro | No Comments

This is a picture of my good friend Luke Bakers Wall Art… He drew this awesome illustrative piece of work on his home wall..

it made a nice picture as i took it at an angle the right hand side of it is quite vague but you can see that it is real on the left…the DOF here helps that..

Luke i have forgotten your blog URL so comment on this and ill add it in… cheers Luke…

Kenyan Flower Series # 3

By | Depth of field, flowers, Macro, Nature | No Comments

This is a really nice shot and i almost already think this will be shot of the series..

Again the depth of field here is what makes this one special and just so soft and nice to look at..

No major post production was needed..

I quite like how i have framed it as it sits at the bottom of the frame propping up the lush green garden behind.

Thoughts??

Kenyan Flower Series #2

By | Depth of field, Macro | No Comments

This is a nice little tightly cropped image of… sadly i forget the name… but rather common flower in Kenya…

Again there is allot of depth of field in this and it works rather nicely i feel… it accentuates that nice red core of the flower…

Again just fairly simple levels tweaks here..

Would a more clearer shot with less depth of field have been better?

This image was taken with the revers lens trick effect. This is basically taking the camera lens off your SLR and turning it upside down.. then you have to focus by moving the lens and keeping it steady for the shot. Its often a hit or miss shot but when it works its beautiful as you can see the above image is just of some text on a piece of paper that you can even see the pixels of the ink jet… i do really like this and i dint have to edit it much i have just change the hue to something softer and desaturated it so that is quite plain but this is the beauty of it.. Thoughts on this technique??
