This week’s theme of light and colors was rather enjoyable to shoot. The first three photos are my best three featuring light and the last three in this group are my best featuring color.
The photograph of the Highmark building came out slightly more blurry than I would’ve liked. None the less, the reflective light from its blue antenna highlighted the midnight sky and gave a nice feature to the context of the picture. The shadow picture was one that I came up with at the spur of the moment walking towards downtown. I decided to take two shots at different shutter speeds to accent the light. I personally, like the first (shorter shutter speed), brighter photo better, yet the darker shadow image is still intriguing due to the ability to focus on the cracks of the sidewalk. The darker shadow isn’t as visually striking, but it definitely holds a bit more detail in it its own right. Lastly, I decided to capture the nice clouds overhead (considering how much it has been storming recently). Nothing fancy about this picture just a routine natural landscape picture.
The first photo I decided to used one of the old docking hooks under Duquense Blvd to add a little extra focus on one of my favorite parts of North Shore, PNC Park. I personally, loved how this photo came out and just for amusement purposes wanted to share it in black & white as well. Both photos I thought came out fairly well. The second, was just a little piece of street graffiti I happened to stumble across on Northside. I’m not sure if it was the similarity to the Pac-Man ghosts or just the actual color pattern that made me photograph this, but either way I’m glad I did. Lastly, out of my childlike excitement over the recent announcement of the Final Fantasy VII remake earlier this week at E3, I decided to capture my original copy of the game for Sony Playstation. After all, gamers like myself, have been waiting nearly twenty years for Sony and Square Enix to finally remake this game – only natural to take a picture of the original for this week’s photos.
