Once again, here’s a quick roundup of some (only a very few) of the best work contributed to Flickr by my contacts in the past week.
All of the images lead back to Flickr. I encourage you to follow them all, and browse through the artists’ photostreams. Leave them some comments.
A simple, classic subject. Two things here really appeal to me – the variety of lines, from the web to the twigs to the soft unfocused sticks in the background, and the colours.
For some time now Diego has been running a series on power lines. They are ingenious. By combining only sky and the plainest of subjects, we are left with pure composition. Diego is so skilled with the use of line and balance.
Hey, I know that kid! There is such a great sense of scale in this shot, and it is complemented by the blur of Gaby’s Lensbaby. I’m lucky to be part of a great group of photographers who meet every month. One of the perks of this is so many great photos of my kids get taken.
Last Days of Autumn, Takahiro Yamamoto
Takahiro often focuses on natural subjects, for which he has a good eye. This is simply a classic composition, and the colours are just beautiful. The light is used so well, you can almost feel what it is like to be there.
The new Holga panoramic camera! I want one! I want to be able to do something like this with it! But I doubt I could. This is such fantastic use of multiple exposure.
*, Chris (Skippymarv)
Chris has a great eye, and does some excellent work with lo-fi film cameras. I’m not sure whether this is actual solarisation or whether he’s played with the levels after the event, but I love the confusion of tones in a sharp composition. Intriguing.
As always, which of these shots appeals to you the most, and what do you have to say about them?
