A few weeks ago, an accident occurred while my wife reorganized photo albums. She cut up an older black-color storage sheet, to which a portrait stubbornly and stealthily clung. Seeing and liking the image, I […]
Like the Sirens’ call, festive, rambunctious live music beckoned as I left Trader Joe’s this evening. I walked to the car, set in my groceries, and returned to see who could be the player. Approaching, I pulled out 2 bucks to drop in his instrument case.
I snapped the Featured Image, at 6:08 p.m. PDT, using iPhone 7 Plus, opting for the second lens that acts as optical zoom. The choice allowed me to keep distance while shooting and clear way for other passersby to likewise show their appreciation.
What’s there to say about Cuban Coca-Cola cans fashioned into a camera? Now there’s recycling for commerce; “355ml Prime Lens” takes the Day as much for the clever self-title as the unusual subject photographed. Canadian Ian Muttoo […]
Candid street portraits rarely capture as much character—eh, from cops—as today’s selection, which Brett Sayer captured on April 22, 2013, using Nikon D7000 and 50mm f/1.8 lens. Vitals: f/2, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, 50mm. The […]
Sometimes the best composition frames question “WTF?” That quality takes the Day—for symmetry, focus on the dog, depth of field, beautiful bokeh, and busyness of people and debris. I mean, frak, is this place always […]
Some selections are purely personal taste. They appeal to me, while not really reflecting the shooter’s broader photographic style. Thus, we come to self-titled “Abandoned Farmhouse”, which you can consider companion to yesterday’s “Fear of […]
Neko and Cali snooze on my daughter’s bed. What better place to be for Saturday slumber? I shot the photo using Fujifilm X100T and editing using Google Photos. Conceded, I worked from a JPEG rather than […]
Our selection compliments Day 108. Both photographs use different techniques to split the viewpoint between subjects. Here, the mirror image creates dynamic perspective and leaves anyone looking closely wondering. Because to the far right, there is a man’s partial face in the reflection, watching her. The questions raised by his presence make the image more interesting—even more so with self-title “Two Seconds of Hesitation”.
Thibaud Saintin used Nikon D700 and 50mm f/1.4 lens to shoot the pic on Jan. 1, 2013, at the “Edelweiss cafe, Georgetown, Penang”. He lives in Bangkok, Thailand, where he teaches French. Vitals: f/2.2, ISO 1000, 1/40 sec, 50.4mm.
Mirror shots aren’t unique, but this one presents fresh and clever composition and perspective—once again demonstrating the utility of iPhone 4, like Day 41 “Snow in Rome“, in competent hands. Ariel Dovas shot self-titled “A Warped View of the SFPD” on Sept. 30, 2012, using the smart mobile. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 80. 1/612 sec, 3.9mm.
I discovered Ariel’s photostream on the Ides of March 2015 when searching for art to top “At launch, HBO NOW is No GO“. I initially regarded his photography as being primarily object-oriented but on further inspection understand that it is more about San Francisco living—presented with frankness too uncommon.
Every picture tells a story. The tale here is: “Oops.” Focus was supposed to be on the lamppost. I salvaged the image because the house is clear as viewed through the glass. The “House Behind” is […]
My cousin Dan emailed several old photos he recently obtained while vacationing in Maine. That’s me, probably age 11, but only a guess. The newspaper’s date isn’t visible. I don’t recall the photo or its taking but the shot must have been posed by either my father or uncle. I don’t read French. (Le Soleil was published out of Quebec City. This evening, a quick Web search left me wondering if the newspaper still exists.)
Leica X1 may be my main camera, but it doesn’t go with me everywhere. My cellular is ever-present, however. While still not enthralled with iPhone 4 as a camera, I must admit that it’s still capable […]
