Geese on the pond

I woke up Sunday morning and looked out the bedroom window to notice these cruising the pond. I grabbed the camera and was able to get a few quick shots before they decided they did not like me around and took off. This was the best of the photos taken, not the best but I liked the play of the light on the water.

Regards, Conrad

Some people operate cameras. Others use them to create images. There is a difference.

The Kiss

Shaking it up on the dance floor.

E-5 & 14-35 mm f/2 at 25 mm, ISO 200, f/4, 1/100 sec with FL-50 bounced off big translucent white light fixture. I stood under the big broad hanging, interwoven glass tubes and waited for the action to happen in front of me.

Re: Formation

It's a fine composition. I like the way you framed it. I'm seeing red, white and blue smoke. Nice contrast in B&W.

Re: Dancing in the Dark

I really like that first shot.  The lighting is very nice and I like the subjects body language, he seems to really be into the song he is dancing to.

I like that 2nd shot also, the back light is great.

Anthropomorphic trees

A large portion of my current work focuses on trees, and specifically those with human-like traits:

Stranglehold

Secrecy of the Knysna Forest

These were both shot on 6x7cm film (Mamiya RB67), and developed in my kitchen sink.

Re: Boy and Fallen Tree After the Hurricane

Very good picture. Is it you when you were a child? Big tree.

Re: Formation

To be honest, first thing that come to mind is I would rather see this in colour actually.

Re: Focused on take off

Excellent pose and composition.  The b&w treatment highlights the feather structure on the wing surfaces.  Very nice.

Re: Boy and Fallen Tree After the Hurricane

Nice tonal range and image (from the perspective of an image and not the destruction).

Re: Boy and Fallen Tree After the Hurricane

Thanks, this was taken last week after Hurricane Sandy. Many trees were knocked over in my town.
