SISE Still Image Picture Chosen

After some thoughts and long elimination process, I have finally selected 6 pictures that gives the feeling that I want to convey through them.

These are the 5 of them.

Each shows the state and also the interaction with the environment or the people that are using it. These are aspects that few people will notice when they walk past the red box.

SISE Still Image Part 5

What an unexpected day to be able to take some pictures of a mailman taking the letters and parcels out of the box! Was actually walking around Strokecroft looking for ideas for Moving Image project , but by some chance, was passing by the box when a mailman opens it up and I manage to get the shots with him inside!!

Shall check it out next time to try to capture in more angles!

SISE Still Image Assignment Part 4

Today it drizzles for some time and the clouds are cloudy, forming many water droplets on the box. Capture some of the usual angle but this time added a bit of effect using the water droplets on the lens.

Today tries to show the wetness and flakiness and wear and tear of the box as it is drenched under the rain.

Water droplets show some softening effect to show slight contrast with the texture of the box.

Deciding on a theme for Still Image Workshop

After pondering multiple ideas of what to take for the 5 pictures that I need to submit, I have decided on a simple everyday object that is commonly seen in Britain.

And that is the Post Office Box, the red metal box that is always seen but not always given particular attention to. I want to show the box going trough different weathers and time, it’s usage may have declined but it still stands right up, regardless of weather or time.

The 5 pictures will be of the post office box in going trough it’s normal routine :

1.┬áIt’s oldness, or the wear and tear it has done through
2. In the day
3. In the night
4. In the rain
5. Loneliness

Capturing Still Image SISE

Today attends the SISE Still Image Carousel, and have learnt to take some framing method when taking a shot.
Below are some of the pictures, where I sit in the same place for an hour, capturing only the jar with sugar cubes, pepper holder and a basket.

I’m trying to show simplicity in framing, using items that everyone has but hardly notice. I experiment with angles, focus/defocus, composition etc.

All of these are taken using Sony Xperia Z1, and I have slowly learnt to make use of it’s camera, though not as good as DLSR, that is small yet can be used intuitively .
