Untitled #8


Posted on Sat 27th May, 2006, 2:38pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/125, Aperture: f/9,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM, Focal length: 15mm,
Captured: 23rd May 2006, 1:24pm,

So here's the first of a pair of shots I took with the new 10-20mm lens the other day.

This is Bill and he's a park keeper. His parents have lived on the estate you see over his right shoulder for 60 years and he was telling me about some of the history of the area, which was nice because even though I've worked there for a few years, I know little about it.

Portraits at this kind of focal length aren't ideal - the front of the lens was only about 20cm from his face for this one - but I guess it's all creative :)

What a happy looking man. Love the processing.

It just looks a little (only a bit) too dark for my liking (lover of the bright image), he is a good subject though to shoot and the processing fits the image nicely.

10-20mm? is that a fisheye?? and if so did you stretch shit pic out??? I have to agree with sysagent about the darkness tho...

You've done well to keep the sky detail as well as the fabric and buttons on his black shirt. Like it.

I like it because the focal length seems to lend some distortion to the background but because it IS the background it doesn't take over the whole image, it's rather subtle. As for the darkness, well, it's fine for me.
