Since last post much has happen on the project, “Give Wall-E Life- to Sinar”,I am working on. I’ve done post production on fourteen photos, both studio / product done Wednesday afternoon and the shots on location I did yesterday. I went for the cool, blue style I almost always use on my photos. They are all in black and white, and high contrast. Here are six images that didn’t make it for the final selection of eight images. Thank you Sascha and Mimoza for helping me picking out the best photos. I trust you guys made the right choices.
The six reasons these pictures weren’t included in the last package.
Image one was looking a bit to similar to the one I chose for the first image in the series. Image two you needed to have the reference to Wall-E to really understand the picture. Three and four was too similar to each other, they were also a bit boring comparing to the eight I have picked for the finals. Number five was too heavy with its whole, massive dark space. I like the rhyme and repetition and the soft lighting, but it didn’t cross the finish line. The Last and sixth picture looks just like a cropped image of the main, opening picture of my series.
Behind the photo
The location shots are taken at Realfagsbygget at NTNU Gløshaugen, the product photos are taken in studio. All with natural lighting and a shutter of at least one second. I believe the ISO to be about 800 on the studio-shots and 200 on location. The aperture varies between f/2, f/16, f/22 and even f/32 on some pictures. Everything is take with a tripod attached to get the really long exposures.
I will try to publish the final series during noon tomorrow if I manage staying awake. In about five hours I will have the final evaluation of this photo marathon, hoping to get some sleep now.
