This image was taken with the revers lens trick effect. This is basically taking the camera lens off your SLR and turning it upside down.. then you have to focus by moving the lens and keeping it steady for the shot. Its often a hit or miss shot but when it works its beautiful as you can see the above image is just of some text on a piece of paper that you can even see the pixels of the ink jet… i do really like this and i dint have to edit it much i have just change the hue to something softer and desaturated it so that is quite plain but this is the beauty of it.. Thoughts on this technique??
I have just come to the end of a photo series of Ringwood Forest over on my photoblog.
Please take a look on Photonoy for the true experience.
Its a series of 6 photos that i took whilst on a shoot for a uni project. They are all black and white and display a range of was to take photos in a forest and then how you can using different post production techniques to enhance and create a mood and feeling.
Below are a few thumbnails of the images… these can be viewed in a pop up lightbox gallery but do visit Photonomy for the real deal.
Please do check the out and leave lots of comments… its been a while since a had some…
This is just some of the trees as you look up in the forest and then boosted contrast makes the whole thing really dark and contrasty…
This concludes the Ringwood forest series… Please do go through and tell me what you think of them and leave lots of helpful and even constructive criticism.
There is two main aspects that are consistent with this series,
- Black and White
- Forest and trees
I have tried to display a few different ways of taking pictures in a Forrest and i hope that it has helped you see what is possible.
Tell me which one you like the most…
