STILL LIFE 160 – LOOKING AT CHAIRS 5

 

I’ve sampled the excellent food in Rosemarino’s Italian restaurant several times now, and taken some pictures while waiting for my meal to arrive.  Two photos (including a chair) are already posted here and here.

Now, looking at chairs some more, here are more Minimalist views of this restaurant’s simple but completely adequate seating.  My favourite amongst them?  Probably the second image down, for its simple silhouettes and pale, pastel colours – and also, looking at this image naively, the question: which are in the foreground, the colours or the silhouettes?

Which (if any!) of these images do you prefer?

The first post in this series on chairs, which contains context and an image, can be found hereSubsequent posts are here: 2 3 4

Technique: all of these images are jpegs straight out of the X-T2; aside from application of the X-T2’s in-camera film simulations, there has been no post-capture processing whatsoever.  All were taken with the 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm (equiv); 400 ISO; spot metering.

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.

    I think I prefer the two that show the light on the wooden surface – the first and third..The surface is worn and one imagines a hand on it.

  2. I like the third. The color of the wood is what gets to me.

    If you make me chose, my friend it would be the second one down, but even better I like them as a little series of studies!!

    I like them in the following order: 3, 1, 2, 4. I particularly like the two which show the curved edge of the backs – the lighter tones in the third image just edge it over the darker tones of the first image. There’s something about those edges being in focus that does it for me!

      M, my friend, I’m glad these get to you – and I’m very grateful to hear your thoughts / reasoning. Having the edges in focus was deliberate, at the time the edges seemed the right thing to focus on. Thanks again. A 🙂
