Abstract

For this week’s theme I decided to get a decent variety of perspectives and shots. I lucked out getting majority of my shots during one outing and overall was quite pleased with the final results.

Willow's Grove - SS 1/800, F4.5, Focal Length 70mm

Willow’s Grove – SS 1/800, F4.5, Focal Length 70mm

This was actually just a naturally hollowed out portion of a birch tree, but I loved the fact it naturally formed into what appeared to be a cave. I edited out some of the original photo’s brightness to help accent that particular look.

Doorway To Heaven - SS 1/15, F25, Focal Length 25mm

I was actually going to save this shot for my Churches & Religion Project, but figured what the Hell (no pun intended). I really dug how vibrant the stain glass in this church was, so I really toned down the brightness/exposure to bring the focus solely on the stain glass above this particular church’s organ balcony.

Wall-E Vegetation - SS 1/1000, F18, Focal Length 70mm

This happened to catch my eye as I was walking past it. As the name states (and as cheesy as it is) the little tree roots sprouting out of the rock reminded me of the scene in Disney’s, Wall-E, where the surviving humans/robots finally find the first ‘life’ on Earth in a couple hundred years in similar fashion.

Caelumporta - SS 1/1250, F22, Focal Length 18mm

I was actually photographing a completely different subject before this picture. I noticed how brilliant the sunlight was directly overhead, decided to pull a 180 and grab the shot. Personally, this was my favorite photograph from the set.

Modern Bamboo Forest - SS 1/1250, F9, Focal Length 31mm

Modern Bamboo - SS 1/1250, F14, Focal Length 25mm

These three photographs where actually all taken from the same location and I truly lucked out as far as timing. I was in the Allegheny Center, after I took my first picture the automated mist decided to propel itself out allowing me to capture two more great shots. I just found myself in the right place at the right time.
