View Full Version : Just something I took that I'm actually proud of for once.

Alright, I know taking pictures with my iPhone doesn't make me a real photographer (that's just a joke, so calm down partner. ;)), but I will say though, for once, I've taken a shot that I'm actually proud of for once.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/v/t1.0-9/10676125_774534495939494_3149581337892999957_n.jpg?oh=053a914916d33958d4a1109ba5 2ce21c&oe=548A5592&__gda__=1422680398_94df59d118dae525ce3cc3a39071a197

I will say, I really like how this turned out, just by using an iPhone camera (and some editing, and a couple of filters, but that's beyond the point). I mean, I've had a couple of other shots that I'm proud of, but this one tops it, for sure. But yeah, love it or hate it if you want, but in the words of a great fictional character, "That's all I have to say about that." :3

Nah, you just copied their image from a magazine and posted it here :P

Cool image, if only image quality were less blurry I'd say it should be in a magazine!

It looks like a promotional shot for a high end watch, good work,

Another one similar to the first one. This time I didn't use a filter that blurs it.

I like both; square crop factor works very nicely. :)

I feel like I've been taking some real good shots lately.

This got to be one of the best, if not the best, close-range shots I've ever seen on the site. I love how the brown colours and shades mix so well together.

Something about close-ups...it makes you pay attention to all of the minute details in life. Nice work dude.

Thanks Alex! It took me forever to come up with how I wanted to do this one. I was scrolling through filters and I came across a pinhole filter. I couldn't use it, so I just kinda played around with some black and white filters, sepia tones, and a vignette and came up with this.

Yeah, the thing about these timepieces is that if you don't capture the little details, then you won't get the full picture. The one thing I hate though is that I couldn't really get much detail out of the mother of pearl in the dial. But, needless to say I still tried to get as much detail as possible with the shot. But anyways, thank you!

These are all really good! I think I like the sepia-tone one the best. :)

I'm starting to like the black and white thing so much more. This one has a hint of sepia to it as well.

Those are outstanding. Please post more, they're awesome! I like how you manage to make all the colours blend in without contrasting too much.

Thank you Nick! But, but doing black and white is nothing. It gets more difficult when I am dealing with colors.

I mean, I've taken a couple of good shots with color (as evident above), but just from past experience, I tend to work better with black and white. Now my most recent one, I got really luck with that one. I wasn't expecting the effect that I got when I saw that my desk and wall just turned completely white and the watch maintained the colors it did, And I really love the shadow effect and how it reveals the grain but nice and subtle. But that is beyond the point that I'm trying to make when I say that I will post more as I take them.

if these really are yours you def have a future in advertising. I literally thought I was looking at a ad for a watch

Every photo I take is mine. I appreciate the compliment! I've never really thought about that though. Hmm, maybe I will have to consider it. :P

I've never really been big on watches in general, but your picture (and others I am seeing) are really eye-catching and attractive. Really good job on this, Cody. Tying photography to your love of watches is a very nice thing to see.

This Venom is great, and I love taking photos of it.

The contrast between the gunmetal and the silver of the counter. Plus that Mother of Pearl dial and all of it's color. :D

:heart:

Please get this on a magazine! I really like (well, everything) the metal background and the lighting on both the watch's glass, pearl ant the background surface. It also feels organic with less editing.
