Jim pic 47

This is the last of the trip photos of Jim’s that I’m going to feature, though there’s actually one other image that will appear shortly. For now, we’ll take a look at this rather critically.

First off, I doubt that Jim is considering this his strongest composition so I don’t feel bad featuring […]

On composition, part 26: Sunrise and sunset

A tight crop from a wider shot of the breakers at sunrise, increasing attention to those backlit splashes

It’s been a long time since my last ‘On composition’ post, even though I’ve done several that fall into the composition category. And as all avid readers of this blog will know (a ha ha ha […]

Your opinion please

I know, that’s a pretty funny thing to ask on a blog that gets no comments whatsoever, but I have an active fantasy life…

Anyway, here are two versions of a view from the beach trip back in May:

So, not a huge difference between them, but a noticeable one. Both were taken […]

Daily Jim pic 6

This is probably my favorite of Jim’s Tetons compositions, a nice use of the foreground stump mimicking the background mountain in roughly 1/13776 scale. I am guessing this is Jackson Lake, which fronts the Tetons from most of the public access areas.

I’ll take a second to talk about composition here, because I would […]

Just because, part 23

A quick one this morning, an experimental shot done the other night while I was alongside a railing strung with white holiday lights. The Mamiya 80mm macro lens wide open at f4 is what’s largely responsible for the effect, and basic lens traits; the balls are simply point light sources well out of focus. […]

Two views

I have a couple more posts in the lineup right now, but I think I only have time for one this morning, so we’ll just have to see when the others arrive. It’s a shame, because one is pretty damn interesting, but I doubt I can do it justice if I rush it, so […]

Podcast: Composition

Yes, it’s finally here! The podcast I’ve been trying to finish for literally weeks! It will surely live up to the hype and anticipation…

Walkabout podcast – Composition http://wading-in.net/walkabout/wp-content/uploads/audio/Walkabout%20Composition.mp3

First off, since I’m speaking in generic composition terms within the podcast, you can click here for the entire list of posts that deal with […]

More Monday monochrome

Monday color. And monochrome

We’re going to go beyond a simple color post with this one, because it’s more interesting that way. I started off with a macro shot of a small (as yet unidentified) pond lily, which loses a little bit when displayed at this size because the contrast in focus is distinctive at a larger scale, […]

Not completely irredeemable

Okay, after that last post we needed something a little more pleasant to look upon (which means, since they display in reverse order and I’m posting this almost immediately after the previous, that you’re receiving a warning of what will be found further down.) So how about a few images from one evening at […]
