I'm still wondering about the DOF at 2.8, did you happen to stack(?) different focal points like they do in macro photos? Thanks, and I had this rated higher btw.
Original image is in my gallery
Nice CALI! Are you going to tell us more about how you did it? Going to check your gallery.
WOWZER... this is amazing when you zoom in. I will check out that effect, very cool!! Voted!!
This is really great. I can't wait to learn more. The result is VERY good and makes for a very fun and interesting shot to spend time with. Great job.
Really like this shot. voted.
Ps thanks for input and kind words and boosts.
Gfa, i tried to tip my hat to using an effect, not the camera. My wide angle lens does well at 2.8 at short focal distance. In this case about 8'. The actual effect is called "holgaish" in picasa and my intent was to create a little intrigue with a new term. I will post the original in my gallery at end of week WAY different. The contrast it adds is why i chose it.
After doing some searching, you may have gotten the "Holga" effect around the edges with a Holga camera, but the detail of all the items in the shot wouldn't be near as good. Everything in the frame is very easy to distinguish and very good depth which surprises me, with your aperture set at 2.8 I'd think more of the items would be more blurred. Very nice.
veeeery nice, it reminds me about my grandfather carpentry workshop. +3 ps: what lenses did u use?
This is great. Love the effect. I can almost sense a musty smell and hear the creak of the floor boards. So sorry to hear it has burned down. I love visiting places like this that take us back to those old days.
Just love it!
One of my favorites!
I got the idea when I saw the comment on the topic "shot in a museum". I had to ask permission though to setup my tripod, lighting etc as there was no flash photos allowed. I may put up more later in my gallery. What's sad is that this whole building burned to the ground, I was honored to have given my portfolio of my shoot to the society for posterity. To answer some questions...this is an effect...I did not shoot with a holga camera. Thata been cool.
Great shot, where did you find this room??? vote
Super shot like everything. voted
I learn something new every day here. Holga huh? Is it a type of camera or just an effect by your own camera. Wasn't sure about that. Anyway, your shot is wonderful and when zoomed in I like wandering all around. Good clarity and perfect for b&w!
Oh my...now I see why you said to "come inside". When you enlarge it, you can't help look all over the place. The contrast of your image is amazing and the room is full of cool things to look at. I like the was the framing gets everything in a nice balance too. Holga huh? I will go check that out and see if my software has that.
excellent interesting shot and method of shooting, will read up about HOLGA when Iv'e finished rumaging around in the shed.
I had not heard the term but found a good article on wikipedia. Basically a cheap medium format 120 film camera. What's really surprising to me is that you were able to find a room with all that old junk in it. Looks like a fun place to explore in the photo and in real life. Thanks for introducing the term.
Awesome. Was this actually shot on 120 film? Typical Holga style, blurriness in some places, vignetting, etc. Great shot!
I can see the vignetting that is usually present in a HOLGA photo. Which HOLGA camera did you use?
I like this shot I dont undersatnd what HOLGA is or what it has done to the shot can you put the same shot in normal black and white on your gallery at end of teh week..I like what the shot potrays the good old times and the very hard times. Will vote later
This photo MUST be enlarged to experience the true HOLGA effect. There are many good articles on the net. If you enjoy learning about photography, this is something you might want to explore.
