“Opportunity Knox – Gangsters” by Wayne Sisson

Resolution: 3008 x 2000

Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec.

Aperture:  f5.6

ISO: 400

One of my favorite shots from when our class took some publicity stills for an alumnus/independent film-maker for his his debut feature film, “Opportunity Knox”. It amazing what a good professional lighting setup can do for your shots. I was also fortunate enough to land the film’s cover with one of the photos I took this day.

Underwater Photography

Matthew Short

I came upon this site http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/. It’s all about underwater photography. The site is full of information on how to shoot underwater. I know that we don’t have the type of equipment needed, but the subject itself is interesting. The site has instructions on how to photograph underwater scenes. It also has tutorials, articles, how to shoot wrecks, silhoutes, and so forth. This site is full of information and even goes through the type of equipment needed.  I posted some photographs from the site below.

“Fixing the Forest” by Wayne Sisson

Resolution: 3008 x 2000

Shutter Speed:1/200 sec.

Aperture: f/6

ISO: 800

A portrait of a friend and co-worker I took for an assignment that I didn’t find a use for elsewhere. I enjoyed this picture quite, as not only is the wrench and the woodland setting representative of the subject, but they combine to create a nice surreal, absurdist element to the image.

“Beach Weather” by Wayne Sisson

Resolution: 3008 x 2000

Shutter Speed:1/125 sec.

Aperture: f/8

ISO: 400

Probably my favorite picture from my street photography assignment. As you can see, it was a very cold and windy day, but that didn’t stop this elderly couple from enjoying their day at the beach. I tried this shot in black-and-white first, but thought something was lost in the translation. I believe from there I loaded the photo into Google Picasa 3, and mostly just played with the light levels. I love the contrasting horizontal thirds in this shot, which ended up being a happy accident as I took the shot. Glad I had the telephoto lens with me that day, or I might have missed out on this shot.

“Flock at Dusk” by Wayne Sisson

Resolution:  3008 x 2000

Shutter Speed: 1/50 sec.

Aperture: f/25

ISO: 200

When I saw this massive bird migration resting in the area around Prime Hook, I knew I had to try to get a shot of it. Wish I could have done more to capture the moment as I saw it, but it still basically works. Easily the most birds I have ever seen at one time, and I’m pretty sure they’re actively plotting against us, a la “Birdemic: Shock and Terror”.
