Home52 #"always look on the bright side of life"

Recommended Posts

Last year I participated in Joe's PAW challenge and found it a demanding but rewarding experience creating 52 infrared images.
Fon's has taken over and has a inspirational collective weekly challenge running.
Olivier one of the photographers I most admire here has a wonderful 52 week portrait thread inspired by the PAW challenge.

This thread is intended to commit me to post 52 images of my home town in 2013.






I will complete this project off site.... I give my sincere thanks to everyone who has commented on the images.


Your support has been invaluable to me, and very much appreciated, thank you one and all.



Best Regards

Feels like taken straight from a film noir movie.

Good catch.

This does remind me of a scene from a 1950's mystery/crime movie. Nicely done.

Two very nice captures. Both evoke a sense of tension in their own way.

Bez, I do not feel this sensation of "sinister" in the first shot, maybe the background is too light and finally reinsuring for me?

I do however have a strong urge to move back when I see the second shot... This works wery well...

Hey RC just checked in again & saw the new images.

I really like #2, #3 is great timing (actually great timing for both).

Capturing motion within a urban context is unique

Patience in practice , well done.

Have you ever tried downtown urbanscape panos?

Usually shot from outside in, these would be urban street shots from within

I haven't but going to give it a try in a few weeks

      Very enjoyable day spent at the Redoubt, a Napoleonic period fort in the old port of Harwich UK, with our delightful model Sarah-Louise.

      This past week I have been working on a variety of projects for Ford South Africa again. Monday's shoot was all about a local guy and his amazingly well restored '73 Ford Capri. This is my favourite shot from all the shoots I have done for Ford in the past year and it wasn't easy to get, I'll tell you that much!
      Here I'm sitting in the back of a car being driven by our content producer, pointing the camera out the window, using f/18 (yes, on a mirrorless m4/3 camera) with a shutter speed of 1/18 second, trying to get the right framing and all while trying to communicate to the driver of the Capri what speed to go at as well as communicating the same with the producer. After several runs on both sides of a short public road outside the Durban airport I got this one which I am happy to share with you all. 
      I've converted it to B&W because while my iMac is in for repairs I am forced to edit on the dodgy Dell monitor that has been the subject of an article here on FZ (also why I am using an old method of putting my copyright on). I think the conversion looks good. Thoughts?
