Pairc Life II by Camairish

Pairc Life II

Brilliant feedback again - Pairc (also called South Lochs) is the region of south east Lewis where I photographed the house that this composite series is based on.

Moira & Paul - some of these homes most likely were quite spartan regarding decoration, particularly in the Protestant northern islands, but I think you're right, still looks too 'staged'.

I'm taking all the advice on board and will carry on working on the method.

Thanks Tanya - fantastic input again. I agree totally with the figure/feet comments - I've found the feet the hardest part to get right for some reason. As soon as I open the image the figure looks too sharp then my eyes accept it, I'll tinker with feathering his edges a little more and reducing his contrast.

I've left the door closed because in the original it's hinged that way but the only doors I could find hinged the other way! I am planning to use the 'additional light' idea in the next set up though.

Thanks Dougie - lovely to hear from you! I do have a big head (and my wife will agree) but it does look rather huge here now you come to mention it.. I'll try to shrink it a bit and revue the results.

Thank you all for the valuable input.

Thanks Tanya - you're a star. You're spot on - it is my first attempt at a composite image as part of a wee project. I made the room and 'furnished' it with miniature dolls house stuff. I wasn't happy with the look of this so I've since darkened the bloke (me!), added some more shadow and applied a slight blur to the back wall. I'll post that version this evening.
Fully take on board the comments about things looking too clean/tidy - i'll work on that aspect in the next shot.
Value your opinion,

Once Were Moles by Camairish

Once Were Moles

The reason the moles are hung on the fence like this is to inform the farmer how many the 'moler' has killed. He would be paid by the farmer per mole.

Well thought out and the planning has paid off. This is a wonderful image for multiple reasons - all of which you know!
Well done, I would love to have taken this.

Buachaille Boulder... by Scottishlandscapes

Buachaille Boulder...

A fresh new take on one of my favourite hills, wonderful composition. Have looked through your recent shots and I really must get back out there in the winter wonderland that is our north west coast.
Put the stone back now please......you're always doing this.
Best regards Dougie,

Abandoned by Camairish


Thanks guys - the population of the Outer Hebridean islands is stable, but ageing.....which means that vital community focal points such as primary schools etc are gradually closing down. Rennovation may be possible but would be expensive in order to comply with modern building regs and there is more chance of a holiday or retirement home being constructed. This also would add less to the local community financially and socially than were it used to provide affordable housing for those on the waiting lists in Stornoway.

As the previous owner of a Lambretta SX 150 & S2 TV 175 I feel I must vote on this picture! Loved riding my Italian vintage scooters but was never into the UK scooter scene or attended a ride out. My loss perhaps!

Thanks Digby - sepia never crossed my mind but it works well here. Like the mono upload too - I definitely need some more exposure on the wood panelling.

Great reference Nathan - his images are superb, surreal & sometimes Dali-esque. I've not seen his work before so thanks for that.

Marvellous shot of a truly majestic hill Dougie. It does look very 'north American' here, doesn't it? It could easily be the Sierra Nevada in California.

Dali lives on within the street artists in Spain - well spotted. Was in Catalonia out of interest?

Great shot - might look good also as a gritty grainy black and white image.

Fantastic work - the link provided is well worth the look. Excellent collection of street photographs. I love the clean, graphic and grammatical approach to the book.

Beautiful tones throughout and the shifting light is wonderful. Enjoy the trip up north and hope you're blessed with weather and light like this.

Excess Baggage by Camairish

Excess Baggage

Thanks Frank - that mod is so much better. I don't use flash and wouldn't with this subject - distracting him might result in accident. I'll go back to the original and experiment with what you've suggested.

Thank you,

Searching by Camairish


Thanks for the comments everyone - interesting to hear other views. I did in fact try to capture them earlier so they weren't so near the edge but this is just how it worked out in the end.
Willie - I'm guessing they were looking for a long lost relative, but that is just a guess. I'd seen them a few times while wandering through Chinatown - always with the picture on display.

I must admit that street photography is a completely new discipline for me and all comments are very welcome,

Thanks all - the C mount are CCTV/cine camera lenses - an adaptor (cheap on eBay) allows them to fit the ep2 body. Manual focus only and a little bit fiddly but the effects/bokeh are something different. Points taken about the exceedingly shallow dof but I was experimenting to see what happened - the one downside to m43 with it's smaller sensor size is the reduced shallow dof achievable with the normal lenses.

There is mild vignetting with 25mm C mounts on the 43 sensor size, longer than 25mm focal length gives full coverage whereas the 12mm length gives an image within a black circle!
