Hi Gang, I recently had a few hours to kill in L.A. so I headed down to Venice Beach. Next week I’ll post and discuss some of the street photography I did and this week I want to post some of the miscellaneous things I shot.
I’m starting with the last photo I took and working backwards. This image is of the Venice pier and I’m using it to set up a discussion on Wednesday about a different shot of the pier. On a technical note, I used my my Canon 580EX camera flash, hand-held and manually fired 4 times, to light the underside of the pier.
Technical: Canon 1Ds II, 24-70mm lens, screw-on Singh Ray Warming Polarizer, f/14, ISO100, 30 second exposure, tripod.
Color is a unique subject in an image. It can enhance or detract from other subjects. I’m curious to know which you prefer, the color or black/white version, and why?
