Iques (antiques without the ants).
(S.Pedro de Penaferrim, Portugal)view large to grasp the detail, will you?
Well, friends and foes, I know I’ve been away from here for too long! And, it’ll have to be like that from now on; very busy personally and professionally, for the time being and foreseeable future.
But I’ll continue to drop by whenever possible, and showcase some of my photography. I have a few posts that I can make during the coming days, so I hope you’ll enjoy them.
Kicking off the series, here’s something I’ve been wanting to do for some time: a photograph in one of those Antique shops we all know and love
, full of knick knacks. Lots of detail and — let’s face it — a challenge to photograph as to capture it’s beauty without resorting to crass results like “tasteless tone mapping” (aka “sliders to the right”).The image
As with all my interior photography, I asked for permission to photograph this place. I was graciously granted it and, a few days later, I returned with the tools of the trade. I made some scouting around the shop to find the most visually interesting compositions, and this is one that caught my eye.
Collected a number of frames/brackets (there’s no way the dynamic range of this scene fits into a single shot) but then — as usual — applied my personal “brand” of look & feel in order to come up with my
artistic take on the scene. Which isn't very different from reality, really... but it is
quite different than what a camera is able to capture.The tech stuff
Canon gear; wide angle lens, tripod.
The rest of the specs really are besides the point for the purpose of this showing; I set aperture, I set shutter speed; I set ISO; that’s all you need to know — I’m sure most of you could care less about what these were anyway[Be responsible; Consume photography in moderation]
