Wednesday, June 13, 2007 Sunset Textures

Here are a few shots working on texture, color, and framing, from a sunny Wednesday afternoon, for the photography buffs out there, not those looking for the usual Hollywood stuff and the surfers and all.

Well, the billboard above the Morgan Camera Shop, 6262 Sunset Boulevard, does say "color processing" - if you look closely.

Actually, it's a study in red, white and blue.

Further west on Sunset, where it crosses La Brea, there's the Iranian-Irish ice cream place that's been there forever. Framing the sign can be tricky.

It's all in the framing this looking north from Detroit Street, just above Sunset, at the signs up on Hollywood Boulevard.  Making it out here is indeed like pumping heavy, wet concrete.

If you wish to use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me. And should you choose to download any of these images and use them invoking the 'fair use" provisions of the Copyright Act of 1976, please provide credit, and, on the web, a link back this site.

Technical Note:

Most of these photographs were shot with a Nikon D70 - using lens (1) AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or (2) AF Nikkor 70-300mm telephoto, or after 5 June 2006, (3) AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor, 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED. They were modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0. Earlier photography was done with a Sony Mavica digital still camera (MVC-FD-88) with built-in digital zoom.
