Food Patterns

By rowarrior
Had a bit of fun at the Manchester Meet sidling up to stalls with my camera hanging down and trying to take photos surreptitiously. This is the first in a series of 3 abstracts taken at some of the food stalls. I'll upload the others as reportage Smile

Ok, here's some thoughts on the shots.. Nice to see you getting close and with a wide lens, takes some doing to make that decision when doing street stuff.

1 - this is the strongest of the shots, though suffers a bit from being neither bang on square to the cam or off centre enough to make it look like it was meant to be like that. Part of that is down to lens distortion, but it adds a touch of uneasiness to pic. it was well seen and good exposure... could be a touch warmer, mind you so could that day! Smile Use of a longer lens might have worked here too, compressing the image a bit and making more of the colours and shapes.

2 - This does suffer from the wide angle it is hte type of shot that would benefit from a much longer lens to stop the perspective effects of being in close and wide, however, knowing the place that you shot that would never happen, so i'd have been tempted to go even closer and really emphasize the effects of the lens or show them in context a little more.

3 - Again could have benefited from a longer lens here, short lenses are great for street work, but for abstracts i find a longer lens often works better unless you get really close with the wide angle.

Anyway a click for doing it and pushing your comfort zone.. lets see some more Smile
