On The Simple Bisection

By | 2012-10-02T08:05:31+00:00 Sep 26th, 2012|

Here’s one that I took back when I was living in New England. I was testing out a new Zeiss lens ( precioussssss ) and thought that it’d be fun to bisect my frame using these wooden pylons. I can’t begin to explain just how sharp that lens was. It makes me tear up a bit.

But still, this image serves as a reminder that it can be fun to incorporate mild-mannered and innocuous elements into your image so that they’re the main attraction. The pylons here really didn’t do much for me when I got close to them, but when I included the whole lot of ’em and arranged them in a way that they added a compelling geometric feel, all was good.

Just something to consider when your mind is telling yourself that there is nothing to shoot here.

    Yeah +Brian Matiash that really was a sharp lens – great detail in the pylons – versus the look of the water with the long exposure.  Nice.

    It is photographs like that – long exposure – that got me back into photography after a 10 year break. So simple, so elegant yet so hard to do.

    Well done!

    Those poles are a great subject. Very simple, but very versatile; you can create all kinds of atmospheres with them. I have a couple of very different breakwater-shots myself, like the "Breakwater Dusk" I recently uploaded: http://www.arumes.com/photo/main.php?g2_itemId=236
