More Montreal (Four Photographs)

montreal-2To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

An artist, an architect creates a work and a photographer takes a photo. There are two possible outcomes: a reproduction or a new and unique piece of work. That new piece is created with the selection of what is important; angles, lighting, and emphasis on details small and large. So here I have taken four found pieces of work and made the results I hope as unique as the original. This is a style of photography I have long enjoyed. These were taken with the Fuji XT-2, processed as Adobe standard files in Lightroom, Photoshop and MacPhun.

  1. Especially enjoy the first and third shots. The head in the clouds aspect in the third image really brings that photograph to life for me! In the first, the statue appears to be looking at the buildings reflected in the windows. Can you tell us anything about that statue?

    • All I know is it’s called the French Poodle. There is another statute on the other corner of the building known as the Pug. The dogs are looking at one another while the humans are turned away.

      • Thanks for the info. Always look forward to the next subject you choose to photograph. The urban shots are an interesting direction. Do you find it more challenging than nature photography?

        • No, urban is my roots. I would shoot concerts, but they now forbid cameras, portraits if there were subjects, etc. Urban and insects are currently my favorite challenges.

          • I am often on the road in urban setting for my job early in the morning and wish I had the opportunity to photograph what I see in that early morning light.

      • Well I have fondness for mahicans. I know that sounds a bit strange but they do at times have a strange appearance. Sometimes they are associated with science fiction.
        Victor, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    • Thank you. There was a companion sculpture but no good angle for an interesting shot.
