Just a thought - but how about sharing a few 'Things' that we photograph.
Maybe items around the house up close, models, trinkets etc??
Might be interesting for a while...
here's an example

Nice idea Geoff. I really like the pocket watch.

I was lying in bed trying to learn my new camera a day or two after I got it.

A 3D kite taken from the balcony of a condo in Florida in July. I thought it was sort of cool how it's a ship and I had the ocean behind it.

Gracie - love the 3D ship - very effective !
Paul C - I particularly like the frogs
Anyway
Here's Congo. He's a toy that my Son got when he was small - it was the start of a collection of Monkeys that he still has at 13 (over 30 of them now!!!)
Here he's posing with a small router - pretending it's his Guitar!

Here's an electron microscopy grid. It's unusual, i know, but it's a thing after all.

It has only 3 mm in diameter.

No No - you are right! - it IS a thing after all. I like some of the 'Things'
people are posting.
Here's one from last year - my Son was into these little models called Warehammer - there is a group called 'Games Workshop' where you buy these - paint em up and then there are games rules to do battles with them.
They are fairly small - about 1.5 inches high I guess -so there is a bit of skill involved. You get all sorts of stuff to go with them - scenery tanks fortresses etc - good fun!
These are 'necrons' taken on the trusty C-740 in macro mode

Here's a thing called the Eights Tree - while we're still pointing generally skywards - On the Thames Tow Path, or just off of it.
Dedicated to the memory of R.C. Sherriff, Playwright and keen oarsman.
A bit of an unusual sort of thing to find.

I'm afraid that would have to be filed under "Uninteresting Things". In fact, I was having a little problem where I was stuck at work, hungry, but this photo has helped me get over that.

So the challange, use photography (or photoshop) to make it interesting. Hmmmm. (I suppose an unattractive capture could be an objective, sort of like the popperatzi finding beauty queen X frumpy and fat looking).



It's all in the eye of the beholder, eastbluffs. I never saw any "rules" or definitions of what comprises an "interesting" Thing. I find a few of the things on this thread to be uninteresting, but that's just my opinion, I am not criticizing people for posting them. I should say also that my photo posted with much less quality than the original. But I take offense at your response to my post.

Hereís a little something that I had on loan for a while ~
Itís supposed to be held and fiddled with and there are weights inside that chime. It's supposed to do your hands and wrists good as well as have a calming effect!!!
Instead I took a photo, which I found quite therapeutic!!

I think so, but I took it offline whatever the outcome - and removed my remark. Its just a forum, but one day I'll learn from the wonderful diplomats here like George and Geoff just how and when to express my opinion. Thanks.

Apologies to all for putting a damper on such an exciting thread.

3 great shots above. You guys really are outdoing yourselves! Keep 'em coming!:)

My contribution - a Kochina doll by Henry Lefthand (surely, I've misspelled it). They make one-of-a-kind doll figures of the actual dancers attending a traditional Native American dance. I don't know much more about it, my brother was (is?) a sort of friend (chiropractor) of Mr. Lefthand who's somewhat known for his dolls - so I got this for Christmas several years back.

It's actually a piece of valuable art and I should have a glass case for it - my careless bachaler days and several moves has left it worse for the wear. Oops.

eastbluff - no worries.
Hey another interesting 'Thing' ~ actually the thread is just called 'Things' I believe.
However - my idea was - just things that you might happen to snap that
don't fit in anywhere else - like my original examples - items you keep around you.
Here's one. It's a tiny glass pig,(about 2cm across) I saw it made when I was
about 10 (that's ever such a long time ago!!)
Here' taken with the C-740 on Super macro 20th sec, F5.6,+0.3ev,
Taken at extrapolated large size (3200x2400 = 7.7mp) then resized to 800x600, no
other processing - the Oly is quite good at these sorts of shots, though the colour is ever so
slightly diffeent compared to the more accurate colour on the A-200 - but for this - it's
ideal (I think)
It's so small that I didn't notice the fluff on it's ear untill after I had processed the pic.

Back in the70's it was quite fashionable in the UK
to have flying geese on the front room wall.
We've got fish in our bathroom - I was suprised when
my wife bought them and put them up - as it's not
normally her sort of thing.
Here's the blue one - there's a green one and an orange one
-taken on the C-740 the colour was not quite right so I have
tweeked it in curves a little.

No No! - it's fine - these are really well done, and great to see here. My son was less worried about getting the fine details sorted - and more interested in getting a squad prepared for battle. Me? I would prefer to paint everything before assembly - like I used to when I was young with all those kits you could buy. Thanks for posting yours - they're great - I will show them to my son.

Here's a little something special -
When my son was a few years younger, and we lived not so far from
where we are now, we had a very elderly man next door who was lovely.
One day he decided to give Jack this as a sort of hand me down.
Somewhere I have a pictue of the moment - but here it is - a Wooden
Coca Cola Car (obviously a one off hand made thing)
(A-200, 0.77th sec, ISO50, f5.6, 91mm equiv,tripod)

Geoff Chandler
10-19-2005, 07:38 AM

Olympus OM2n with really rubbish 200asa film (won't name names!)
had to de-noise it a bit.
Could have gone in the people thread I guess - but it carries on
from my last pic. Jack looks totally different now!!!
But a lovely memory and moment.

Here is something that came out of the Christmas decorations. I rarely have this info but since I do I'll share. DSC-P200 , Manual mode, ISO 100,
F2.8, 8 second shutter speed. I placed the item on black felt and lit it with a small adjustable beam flashlight.

Thanks. I think the problem with that is the fact that it's not perfectly symmetrical vertically, which would show on rotation... I'll try and find something to shoot, but you also live in South England, so I expect you'll understand the problem... Even the dog runs away (doesn't like the focusing motor noise!).

Kushnirenko, I think I know! You think it looks like an electrical fuse! It has been since I was a teenager that I have seen an old fuse like this. No, it is not a fuse but a small container of hand cream to make your hands soft. I think it is made out of bee's wax. Sorry for the misunderstanding!

Thanks, I'm using the 'magnifying glass' mode on my Sony T9, it's so easy to use.
I like your shots as well. Did you use some sort of lightbox, because there hardly isn't any shadow seen from those rings.

danielg
01-12-2006, 12:59 AM
peca,

Wow, I wish all cameras have the "magnifying glass" feature. Thanks very much for your encouragement. I 've been taking photos for less than a month only - I mean I 've used a camera before but it was mainly a "set it in auto then point and shoot" kind of photography and so all sorts of comments, encouraging and otherwise are eagerly welcomed to help me improve. I hope to improve to a point where I can outgrow my "p&s" S80.

I took the ring photo in full manual mode on top of a white granite table top with overhead diffused flourescent lighting. I just looked for the best angle with the least shadows. :)

Nice, I don't know if this is right as I am a total newbie having started taking photographs seriously less than 3 weeks ago, Ibut maybe you can step back a bit so that the whole subject will be captured in the frame instead of having the bottom area cropped a bit and alsotry moving the subject to a background of a different shade so that you can furthur highlight the beauty of the subject. Just by newbie advice - which may or may not be correct. I hope I didn't offend you in anyway with this post. :)

All shots were taken at my favorite spot - the bathroom :D The counter top of my bathroom is made up of an all white (almost semi-transluscent) granite, sometimes it seems like there is a lighting from below as the granite sort of reflects the overhead diffused flourescent light. :)

You shot these pictures with a high aperture (low F-number) try it again with F8.0 and you will see that a lot more is in focus. But I think that, especially in the 2nd picture, the low depth of field works very well.

This guy is trying to remember where he left the rest of his body.

No Glen it wasn't, but it's not where you might think either. It was an exhibit at the Gardeners World Live show in Birmingham. I think they were trying to show how roomy a VW Golf is.

Hi all, well my Son in the bottle is now 33 years of age so you can guess how old this pic is.

It was taken with my old Roliflex 3.5f (2 exposures one with wife and bottle and the second my Son kneeling) All the work was in fact done in the darkroom using the two negs. Would be a piece of cake today with the computer and paintshop pro.

I think about 800-1000 pixels wide is about right for the forum. Otherwise, there is too much scrolling side-to-side.


Just some bleachers at a baseball diamond
- A bit blue/cyan color cast, common in snow scenes.

Some crayons
- Might be better with different angle, and the the words lined up a little more.

My 3yr old Caitlyn
- Perhaps better located in the "People" forum. Nice picture of a cutie.

Buffalo City Hall
- Perhaps better located in the "Interesting Buildings" forum. Maybe rotate some of the tilt out.

Wow, I'm impressed with some of the talent we have on the board. I'm loving all the photos...

Here's my contribution to the thread.

This is a close-up picture of a glass rock I took for an attempt at an abstract photo.

Here is one that my wife took for the same reason. I like hers better. I think it has more of an artsy look to it.

As always, please feel free to comment/critique. I'm fairly new to photography, and I would really love some feedback on how I'm doing.

kikn79, welcome to photography :D You'll love it. I'm glad you're trying different styles of shooting. That glass rock is a good subject. One suggestion I'd make is to crop it a little so you can't see the other rocks at the bottom. Good shot, and I hope to see more!

Thanks. I'm really enjoying it so far. I have a hard time deciding what would make an interesting picture, but I'm learning...

I cropped the photo like you suggested. I agree, it looks much better. Thanks for the tip and for the feedback!!

Amazing pictures. I love the way in which you framed the images, very creative. The exposures are spot on, and the colours great. I like the first two best. The third I find less intersting. It's composition is less special and it could use a bit more contrast. Other than that, good job, thanks for posting.

Thanks! :) Prospero, I agree about the contrast on the 3rd ... I tried, and it always made the colors too bright. I'd love to see what you would do to it ... if you have time :D

Yes, all great shots. I really like them a lot. My only suggestion is for #3. I would try to straighten it slightly. If you look at the lines of the bricks, they are not quite horizontal. In photoshop, click view-show-grid to bring up the lines you can use. Use the crop tool and select the whole image. Move your cursor to any one of the four corners until the cursor becomes a curved arrow, now you can turn the image to straighten it until lines are horizontal. Hope this helps!:D
