Since I'm fairly new to Cameralabs, I didn't know if I'd make this month's assignment.

However, coincidentally, on the first of July, I was keeping my photographic theme as minimalism. (Weird habit, set themes per shoot).

I hope this is fine, since it wasn't SPECIFICALLY for this contest.

I defined minimalism as "a photo that screams."

As in, it is a powerful shots that expresses a certain point, or simply so abstract, that you can do nothing but enjoy it.

I don't think I've met my definition quite well, but I'm still learning.
Here is my result:

Image

Titled "The Circle of Confusion," as a bad attempt at sounding photographic :?

And now a surplus of EXIF:

Camera Model: Canon EOS Kiss Digital X
Lens and focal length: 28-80mm AF lens @ 80 mm
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/25 (hand held)
Sensitivity: 1600
Post processing: Ran it through some slight curves, out of a habit, and through Neatimage, to get rid of that ISO 1600 noise.
No flash.

Subject is actually car headlights on the highway.

A feeble attempt, but a shot nonetheless

:lol:

My entry:


Image

Taken with an Olympus E-3 and a ZD 12-60 f/2.8-4.0 lens.

Post processing: Application of the antique preset in light room, and the addition of simulated "film grain", but Unfortunately, the required size for the assignments is too small for this effect to be seen.

Camera Model: Sony A350
Lens and focal length: Tamron 90mm 1:1 macro
Aperture: f/16
Shutter Speed: 4s
Sensitivity: ISO100
Post processing: editing out a few dust spots

My first attempt working at 1:1 macro. Found my stash of coloured paper to serve as the background, and got in close to these coriander seeds. I'm going to have to invest in a nice pair of tweezers if I'm going to move stuff like this around much.

Canada Place in Vancouver.

I wanted to find some simple lines and colours for this assignment. While I was out shooting this evening, I saw the Canada place roof against a cloudless sky and thought that this might be suitable. I had to crop out a significant portion of the image as I wanted it as simple and clean as possible and this is the result.

Camera: Nikon D300
Shutter speed: 1/400
Aperture: f/10
ISO: 200
Post Processing: Cropped, converted to black and white with Silver Efx Pro plugin for Aperture

Focal length: 79mm
Shutter speed: 1/320
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 100

Proccessing: colour selection, contrast/brightness, saturation, highlights brought under control - photoshop CS3

Challenges? None in particular - except that I had to find a brick or two to stand on to get the right angle. :D

Minimalism

Finally, when you focus on a single subject, strip away the colors, reduce the content to the max, you are there...

It's just a fly!
Image

No animals were harmed for this shot!
Camera Model: Nikon D300
Lens and focal length: Nikon micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR from 50cm distance
Exposure: f/5.6, 1/250 sec, -1EV
Sensitivity: ISO 200
Post processing: cropping, sharpening, curves
Challenges:
1. Shot handheld which makes correct focus a gamble
2. Exposure against the bright background
3. Capturing the fly in the right position
