Underwater Experimental


Tentative title: Free Fall

2010606_135-1_4254640-001


In general, my position is that one works to the limits of the equipment. This comes from my early teaching from my father, as does my tendency to compose/crop to full frame. To the latter, I am between two thoughts on cropping this one; not sure the light in the wall of the pool adds anything, nor am I certain it detracts. To the former, the optics are what they are, a disposable camera thus an inexpensive (probably plastic) lens, and 800 ISO film. Either film or digital, around 800 ISO speeds one begins to see grain or 'noise' in ones images.

For an experiment, to stretch a bit in a direction not previously followed, the equipment and timing proved satisfactory.

I do think it would make a very nice 8x10 cropped just below the upper light and above the dark patches on the bottom; you still get that sense of a large space and the buoyancy, but it is ... dreamier? ... without the distraction of the hard, high contrast (well, relative to the rest of the picture) edge.

That actually has a lot of potential for 0 gravity type shots and models for drawing. I want to see more. :)

Yes, that is one of my background concepts as well. Will be more.

Interesting concept

Ah, but it is digital. It's on-line! *G*

Yup, scanned film.
