ARCHIVE: STILL LIFE 46 – AUTUMN


Autumn leaves and lichen inside an old and very weathered pot for flowers; on a grave, on a frosty morning, in the cemetery at Stanton Drew.

Technique: X-T2 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 238mm (equiv); 3200 ISO; Lightroom, using the Velvia/Vivid film simulation; Stanton Drew, in the Chew Valley, south of Bristol; 6 Nov 2017.

ARCHIVE STILL LIFE

This is a new category on this blog – Archive Still Life studies.  The Still Life definition will certainly be followed loosely – e.g. some studies may only have been made “still” by the split second opening of the camera’s shutter – and my objective will be to use as many different types / genres of subject matter as possible.  Some images will be Minimalist and, in general, I try to make simpler images, rather than cramming them with visual content.

Some new Still Life studies will (hopefully!) continue to appear.



ARCHIVE: LOOKING AT CARS 33 – MAIN ROAD, DAWN (MONO)

 

 


.

Driving at dawn, in autumn: bare trees, mist, darkness and – rather unsettlingly – a fat, disheveled old man, with far more hair than is immediately apparent, photographing your passing car …

The Looking at Cars series: looking back through the nine years of the FATman Photos archives (and some new images too), I’m posting pictures of cars in various contexts and styles.  Earlier Looking at Cars posts are here: 1 (with context); 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 .  Each post will open in a separate window.

OUTER SUBURBS 298 – AUTUMN 8

 

 


.
Early morning mist, the sky just lightening and, just above the tree in the center of the shot, the merest hint of a contrail caught by the first rays of the rising sun – best seen by magnifying the shot (by clicking onto it – see below).

OUTER SUBURBS 294 – AUTUMN 6 (MONO)

 

 


.
A very deceptive image, a very selective piece of framing: just below this apparent misty autumn idyll there are houses, commuters and rush hour traffic.  Few things are what they seem on FATman Photos … 😉   …

There are other images from this early morning here, here and here .  Each will open in a separate window.

ARCHIVE 583 – AUTUMN 2

 

 


.

Autumn leaves form a carpet around the Hazel in our back garden; 30 Oct 2009.

Used away from the horizontal, the fisheye lens has given the whole photo the appearance of showing an elevated ridge in the ground.  Back beyond the Hazel’s trunks, the patches of green lawn appear to be sloping down to either side.  And the nearest leaves seem to be bulging up towards the camera, and to be swirling in a circular fashion – which is an effect I like.

Technique: D700 with Sigma 15mm full frame fisheye lens; 800 ISO.

OUTER SUBURBS 288 – AUTUMN

 

 


.

Walking in the dark with fog, dimly reflecting the city’s glow, not far above.  And as I walked on the dawn came up and the fog came down, and the world became one of vague outlines, soft uncertainties and muted hues.
