There is no such thing as straight line! (Two Photographs)

One of the advantages of high-end processing programs like Photoshop is that you have many tools to straighten your lines and horizon. One of the downsides of high-end processing programs like Photoshop is that you can spend all day with the transform tools and be only slightly better off. Now I am not an expert but I am finding few straight lines in my urban photographs. Sure I give it a try in post-processing and I find more tools and techniques all the time, but frankly this is the most time-consuming element of processing some urban photos. When I find a tool that works for me I will pass the info straight along.


As Intended (Two Photographs)

When I do window display shots like these my first thought is that this is not what the window designer intended. My angle and my choice of what to shoot, changes the intended display into another form of art. Window displays are sometimes works of art that have impact on viewers, much like photography.


Mundane and Simple (Two Photographs)

Found along one of my walks. I like the plain and simple look of these as well as the perspective. I recall a series like this was bought and placed in a corporate boardroom. The CEO who bought them was quoted as saying something like “they should remind us of the city we live in”.


Garden Flowers (Two Photographs)

Given the intense heat this summer I‘ve taken some short walks in the city to take photographs of flower gardens. Most of the gardens seem to be growing wild, certainly healthy. Some interesting shots were had. I have been selecting photographs whose histograms favour the left (darker) and then processing them normally. This seems to work well with fuji files in the adobe colour space.

A good guide to say if you like a shot is to ask if you would put it on your wall. You are not likely to get much attention with a shot that you don’t like. Not everyone likes abstract photography, and it‘s easy to see why. But if you want to experiment, especially with composition, its a great way to try out your ideas. 


The Auto Show (Two Photographs)

An Auto Show was held simultaneously with a Doors Open day, where many buildings gave tours, including the National radio station, and buildings of parliament, all bordering the Auto Show. It was a bit crowded and getting shots with the fewest people and other distractions proved interesting. The cars were plastered with posters. Cars at one time, had really distinctive style, and I wanted to emphasize that. In this case I prefer the B&W version as I think it shows the car off best.
