2005-03-28: Man, bike and bird. Taken with a Canon G5 through the waist level viewfinder of a Rolleicord.
Shot of the dayMy Photo Impressions.
This is unusual, I had to think twice when I saw the picture, and still no clue until I read the explanation. good idea! good execution too.
Wonderful wonderful shot ... I was actually browsing through your archives yesterday and came across the pictures that you shot through your rolleicord sometime ago ... and what are the chances that you would post the same kind of picture today .. WOW. Btw my photoblog address has changed slightly. Also have “actually” shot a roll of film using your rolleicord.
Lovely shot Miles. As you know I love this kind of work. It always brings a sense of reality to a picture. I wish I could explain what I mean but I think you understand.
Great effect Miles. The photograph has a kind of feeling attached to it (old, aged, dated are the words). Nice.
The effect actually comes across as hand colored this time. Really nice, man.
great! I love these shots into the waist finder. It really adds a nice feel with the grain and vignetting
Great shot. Definitely has that nostalgic feel to it, which I love.
Awesome effect, and I love the movement in the photo.
That WLF needs some serious cleaning ;)
Ah, beautiful. Definitely has a nostalgic feel to it. And the tricycle next to the old man makes for a really interesting scene.
Very cool. Love the gritty, aged effect.
I feel like I'm in a time warp.
How did you think of this?
Thanks all, I love the texture of these kind of shots, and they're unprocessed which is nice too :)
Susan, I first did it after being captivated with the image seen in the rollei's viewfinder, there's just something magical about it. So in an attempt to capture it I stuck my point and shoot down there on macro mode. I know other people have been doing these 'ground glass' shots too, sounds like a good idea for a flickr group :)
I definitely need to give that thing a good cleaning though!
Wow. Damn fine.
Thanks for pointing me to the works of David Hilliard ... Darn and I thought I was doing something totally unique for my post today ;)
Hey Miles... I hate that I kind of ripped you off, but I couldn't resist when I went out to shoot today. So I posted a similarly shot image on my site:
Nice technique. I like how the effect adds a sense of timelessness to the subject matter.
Wow...you just have some amazing photos here--both the black and whites and the color shots... This one is really interesting--I love the grittiness of the edges, and something about the vertical lines makes me smile! Well done!
Brief background for those like me who have seen a Rolleicord:
Thanks David, I posted a 'portrait' of mine back when I bought it, http://mute.rigent.com/index.php?ladat=2004-10-31 :) They're great cameras and now all the snow seems to have gone I'll be using it more.
Really cool technique. There's so many great elements in this photo too.
Fab, it has that old home movie feel to it, way cool.
Such a cool picture. I like the scene and how you captured the moment (the seagull) It's got this "the summer has gone" mood. I used to love to go to the seaside in early September - everyone would be gone now, the resorts looked eerily deserted. You'd only find some pensioners sitting on benches by the sea for hours just staring into the sea contemplating... Your picture brought back this feel the moment I looked at it. If there's one thing that bugs me about it it's the toy motorbike. The vivid colours somehow clash with the muted tones prevailing in the rest of the frame. Still great picture that's got some timeless quality to it.
By the way thanks a lot for linking my picture on your blog. Silly as it may sound, I feel honoured :)
Tremendous shot Miles. What a great narrative.
very cool shot miles.
Thanks all, I'm glad someone else likes these kind of things!
Greg, no worries, it's a wonderful shot!
Very nice just like the other ones.
Oooooooooooooooooooooo you're barking up my tree, Miles! Gorgeous through and through.
ha, this is great stuff Miles, well done.
I am speechless...
Creative, very creative. Who ever would have thought to do it this way? Well, you, obviously.
On an original techniques scale of 1 to 10, this is at least a 42.
This is the kind of picture that tells the difference between simply Photographer and Artist.
More than execution, it's the idea. You're a genius!
I should drop by more often Miles! Another exceptionally creative image on your blog. Love the subject, the framing, the Rolleicord vignetting...
this is AMAZING. i don't know what to say, save i love this shot.
you shot what you see when you taking a photo.. very cool!
This one makes it to my Friday Favourites this coming Friday in the Journal section of my site.
Wow - what a great shot!
