A Short Walk

Hey guys!

     This will be a short post, because I'm tired after a very long day. I just wanted to share a little jaunt that I was able to go on today. It spanned from Downtown Tyler to a gem of an antique store close to the railway station. Here goes.......

An antique typewriter. You know, those things that you'd press the keys down a quarter mile upon for them to type?

     This little diamond of a find was shot at f2.8 with an ISO of 3200 and a shutter speed of 1/120th sec. I wanted to make sure that the image was sharp sharp sharp on the text and to have a tad bit more depth of field than f1.8. I'm pretty sure I found my new background!...I love textures :))) Maybe I'll get a large print of this one for a wall in my house somewhere.

     Well, this little fellow looked super cuddly and soft. Then, I took the picture and viewed it on the back of my camera. Lol. It was only then that he appeared to be a bit angry....

     For most of the indoor shots at the antique shop, I was able to to shoot wide open @ f1.8 on my 50mm and shoot with an ISO around 1600, which is common to shoot at these days, but 10 years ago, it was a stretch for most cameras (I'm still impressed with my second hand, full-frame sensor camera :D)

     Alrighty, one more! You may be shocked, but I didn't trespass to take this shot. I'm shooting through the gate's bars, haha. I attempted to use leading lines and the rule of thirds in my composition to bring the audience into the photo. I completed the post processing with some split toning to help give it more of a vintage feel by warming the colors and giving it a slight yellow tint.

     The power lines give it away as being near civilization, the dilapidation points toward a government project :P In the meantime, it provides a great place to look into and to take fun photos.

Here are a few of my other captures....
