Photo 101: Day Seven: Big & Point of View

There are several photos inside. Please click and if you have a moment feedback appreciated on my colouring choices. Thanks for stopping by.

“Today, let’s go big. Whether inside or outside, photograph something of massive size. Feel free to interpret big in your own way, and get creative with your shot. Capture all or just part of the subject. Place it in the foreground so it takes up the entire frame. Or shoot it from afar so it appears smaller — yet still prominent.”

In addition to the assignment I am working out some different features of photoshop. The first photo I was playing with light and dark and worked out a lighting effect that I thought emphasised the ‘bigness’ of the Pylon Driver.
The rest of the photos I played with the channel mixer to produce partial colour & B&W.

The photos in the centre of the pylon and large rope are some definite playing. I kind of like the one that has just the hint of colour with just colourising the rope going around the pylon. Which is your preference or maybe none…??  I also flipped the canvas horizontally for the first of the three just to frame the group.

The last one, the excavator, I just wanted to focus on the orange and the ‘bigness’ once again.
