Flattened beer can, retrieved from a gutter in Whitchurch, Bristol; 22 Jan 2006.

A dramatically up close and personal picture of an everyday object.  It is lit by the harsh, warm, directional light of a slide projector.

I sited the red panel containing the beer’s name at the top left of the picture,  and made it slightly truncated by the photo’s margins, to give the impression of a large and powerful but crumpled object squeezing into the picture’s frame.  Siting the beer’s name in the center of the composition would have less effect.

Tripod-mounted OM-4 with 135mm Zuiko and extension tube; Fuji Velvia 50 colour slide rated at 64 ISO.


About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Gemma, thank you very much!! I see Clinton just won the NJ primary – although I know almost nothing about US politics, it would be good to see a female president. ATP xxx
