So here's the shot for today. Also I had a close encounter with the Paparazzis which wasn't all that pleasant (yes, it was people working for them). I'll explain sometime when I am not so tired.
This was a leaf right there on the sidewalk. I like how the light plays with the upper surface of the leaf. Exposure is long, out of the camera jpeg, perhaps a tad underexposed but I did take a second more exposed one and seems to have less contrast... and I don't want to post process so...
These two shots I took at lunch. The first is a co-worker and I love how the ceiling came out- amazing. I was told today by my teacher that photographing from below where the nose of a person looks like that is not very flattering but my composition is amazing in this shot nonetheless and the background/etc is nice.
The 2nd shot I took on that very place where that ceiling was once we started eating. That's a woman talking to someone else on her table, and she was 3-4 tables away. Having "live view" helped me keep shooting as "if I wasn't." I like the colors though it's a tad blurred.
So I decided right after my photography class to start checking out some ideas for my now new current homework... so I decided to take a look at Hollywood Blvd during the day- and use my new shitniz live view in the e-330 new camera I got.. worked great. Turns out there was an anti-Bush administration protest galore.
Because I had forgotten my 2 gigs compact flash card and I loaned the 1 gigger... I had to go to a supermarket and buy a cheesy 32 megs Kodak compact flash for $13.00 (tax included). Couldn't help it but "I needed film." With this I took several (up to 32) 2 megapixel (1600x1200 rez) images at 1/4 jpeg compression (the evolt does as low as 1/2.7 for very high quality jepgs).
The gallery is here. Critique welcome. I did crop some shots but other than cropping on some of the shots, zero post processing. Also I like some shots but I also think I have a share of snapshots here... critique away!
Oh, one more thing, looks like I photographed "an old man" there... he didn't phase much when I took his picture... and I didn't think much of him. Turns out apparently that was acclaimed film director Steven Spielberg and I didn't recgonize him! There's also apparently one actress in one of my shots filming with a camcorder some stuff but I forgot her name.
<<-- Apparently this *IS* Steven Spielberg... and I thought it was "just some old dude." I shoudl have talked to him, we even have a common friend now (long story).
This is actually part of my homework for this Saturday. I had taken a shot like this already but this time I had to "rim" with light the left side too. Jpeg out of camera, B&W, SHQ, ISO 100, e-330, zero post of any kind.
