Thread: Master of Time

    Master of Time

    OK I know I said that I would put the watch away..and I will...I will. But, I had an imperfect image that I quite liked the idea of. So with a reshoot being out of the question, he's at his Nans and he kept complaining his arms were aching (although I don't see that an hour and a half in that position is too demanding) I tried for a grainy, contrasty Ilford ASA 400 look.

    Imperfect? - Maybe

    Gorgeous? - Definitely

    There's just no pleasing kids these days.

    This and the Levitation series - all as per usual. 'nuff said!

    Young Time Lord. It has that sort of magical thing about it.

    Okay, I'll bite. Imperfect how? The fact that the watch and hands aren't sharply focused?

    Cheers,

    Rick, the lighting was all off. I was shooting through a brolly that was way to close to the subject and was putting the lower part of the face into shadow. The backlighting was too low and too harsh and if I had sat on he cat and and accidentally microwaved the hamster I couldn't have had a worse session. The problem is I get too carried away with the idea and get slip shod with the tech bits (hence the three children)

    Thanks, Steve. Having the upper part of the face highlighted actually seems a plus to me: it brings attention to the eyes, which brings attention to the watch, which ties the whole thing together. But I see that it rather changes the story from "child with watch" to "watch thrown by child" or "activity by child."

    Cheers,
    Rick

    But Steve - what was it you were trying for? Face totally lit, background evenly lit - right. How would that have changed the meaning/s of the image? I don't understand.

    I like the way it is. Looks like those classic works of art the past masters used to make.
