So last week, my parents “stole” my camera…well actually I let them borrow it….regardless, I didn’t have my camera, and I missed it dearly. SO…on Sunday I went a little crazy, well not really, but I did get excited when I started taking pictures. So anyways….getting back to my project, a few weeks ago Mr. Twitchell had his other photography take pictures of different textures, and I figured that would be kinda cool to play around with considering I like taking macros. I looked around my room to see what would be interesting to photograph, and I came up with a scarf, feathers, a painting, paper mache stuff, a bag made of can tabs, and a zipper. My goal was to get as close to the subjects as possible to get a good shot of the different textures.
Here is what I got:
I think I could use some more work on this, getting more variety in textures and different angles so the textures would be highlighted more.And this picture is one I took with my phone. I was looking at my water glass, and I thought it would be cool to see if I could get a good shot. I was too lazy to get my camera so I just grabbed my phone. So this is a picture of bubbles on the side of a glass that has water in it. I later tried to get pictures with my camera, but it wouldn’t focus right, but I really like this picture.
And finally I took some fire pictures. I wasn’t able to for a while because there was no need for fires considering it wasn’t cold, but a few weeks ago we got one going in our stove, heat stove that is. So I decided why not take more (I tried taking some last semester).
Here is what I got:I like these two out of the thirty plus I took because the flame fills most of the frame. At first I didn’t really care for the black curve going through the picture, but as I look at it more, I like it more. To me, it adds contrast, depth, and a word that I can’t think of hahaha.
CONTRAST: I think this applies more to the second than the first, the solid black against the bright oranges and yellows helps break up the photo.
DEPTH: Well…I don’t really know what to say about that honestly.
And lastly, the word I can’t think of, I will attempt to describe what is going through my head. SO, the fire is constantly moving, its unpredictable. In a sense its “free”, free to do what ever it wants. Fire, however, can be easily destroyed with just a bit of water. The iron (the black line going through the pictures) is certain, it can’t move without a great effort. It is stuck, unmovable, and also indestructible for the most part. After writing it out, the fire and the iron contrast, but in a deeper sense……maybe thats the word I was looking for.
So that is my post for the week, lots of photos, and lots of fun!
