Lambs To The Slaughter

Posted on Thu 10th Nov, 2005, 3:37pm

ISO: 400, Shutter speed: 1/40, Aperture: f/2.8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 24mm,
Captured: 10th November 2005, 9:47am,

This is an underpass in Shepherds Bush. I took the photo on my way to work this morning.

I've had the pleasure of staying quite close to work for the past two nights and the twenty-minute stroll to the office has been quite refreshing. In spite of taking pictures on the way, I've actually been in early, which is something of a novelty for me.

Technically I'm not entirely happy with this image. I couldn't sharpen it much, probably due to the high contrasts in it, and it always annoys me when I can't get photos as sharp as I'd like.

Really nice, has that gritty feel to it, I also really like the lighting.

Constructive criticism You could probably do with shooting with a smaller aperture, i notice you often use very large apertures because you dont use a tripod, but means that your depth of field is hugely reduced which is not necessarily negative but it will affect sharpness through the image.

Yeah I do tend to use wide apertures. Unfortunately it's either wise apertures or no images, as I can't take a tripod with me to work and I wouldn't want to. I do tend to bump the ISO up to try to claw back some DOF but this one was already at 400 and didn't warrant any higher really.

Yeah course mate- the perils of photography on the move. You make some strong images though- keep up the good work. peas

These sheep are old friends I unexpectedly rediscovered on a return visit to London last summer. I wrote wistfully on my blog about being guided along by them towards the light after a descent among the shadows, and I'm happy to find an image that expresses for me some of the same idea (even though I now notice they do not guide out of the tunnel, only to the centre).
