This is what’s called ‘in camera’ art. The only thing I did to this post production was to level it up. The subject is a Poinciana bush in the front yard. How do you do it? Easy, I set the shutter speed to 1 second, focused at the top of the bush, pressed the shutter button and moved the camera down releasing the button when I reached the bottom. Viola! Something arty.
Two looks at the one scene. We’ve had some heavy mists lately so I thought why not do a comparison shot. The monochrome looks a little eerie but the colour has more body to the mist. Yes, there are two kangaroos in there.
Two views of the inside of the house from last week’s post. Monochrome adds a little mystery.
Here’s a few more. I thought the dark, gloomy look gives it a certain street appeal. The piece of briar growing into the wall is indicative of the house’s condition. I made everything sepia except the vine and a tiny piece of leaf. There are plenty of bottles and such lying around. I do like the face on the book cover staring out from under the rubbish. I played with the door picture a little, making the background more mysterious and highlighting the doorknob and surrounding timber. The bolt is sticking out from the front veranda. I left it be and applied sepia to the timber.
That’s your lot for this week. I’m off to format my River of Death manuscript for the printer and put a spine and back cover on it for tomorrow afternoon. (Friday) I hope you’ve enjoyed the offerings today. See you next week.
