The Art Of Composition +

8 November 2017

Your eyes do not frame what they see. They notice some detail in passing. You stop. You begin to frame. And in framing begins composition.

But it doesn't stop there.

Composing an image includes all the artificial acts that, together, create a final image. They are artificial in the sense that they are not inevitable, intrinsic changes. They're optional.

But each of them is a road that diverges in a yellow wood. Once you decide to go that way, other options are precluded and new ones present themselves.

This image Game Over is a case study in composition.

We had taken a walk late in the day with our Nikon D200 and an 18-200mm Nikkor without a polarizer on it. As we passed this yard, we were drawn to the last remaining patch of sunlight on the browned lawn. But only as we went by did we notice out of the corner of our eye, the ball.

New Kid On The Block

6 October 2017

One thing about a city that never changes is that it is constantly changing. We were walking down a side street the other day when we looked up and saw a new kid on the block. It's the Salesforce Tower, which has been called many other things, including the Tower of Babel.

Still, it looked pretty good standing out there in the sun by itself. So we stopped, took our camera out of the bag and lined up the shot.

Later, we realized there was a lot more going on in that composition.

There is, for example, the irony of the scrawny tree, which seems to have no hope of ever achieving maturity, let alone health.

There is a city program to plant trees on the street. It's good for the air, which, in turn, is good for us. But this lone specimen seems like a poor argument for it.

Wait a Minute ...

support

10 December 2012

It would almost always catch us by surprise. We'd advance the film on our Nikon FM2 only to find out we'd already taken the last shot.

Sometimes that happens in life, too.

After 13 years as the editor of the Imaging Resource Newsletter, we have parted ways. It's going one way, we're going another.

We wish the company well and remain grateful for the opportunity to discuss our passion for getting the picture with each reader who welcomed such a long email every two weeks in their inbox.

But as we used to tell our (usually) patient subject when we realized we had to put a new roll of film in the camera, "Wait a minute!"

Because we aren't done yet.

And this publication is our way of continuing to discuss our passion for getting the picture. We have several reviews in progress, covering tablet software, new image editing software for the desktop, LED lighting and more.

And this is where you'll be able to read about it.

So we hope you'll join us as we publish here at Photo Corners. If you like the idea, support us with a sponsorship or a subscription. Both come with some benefits right away and more to follow.
