Hello Everyone,

Here is my 1st attempt at a Dave Hill effect. Not anything as dynamic as Dave Hill, but something different anyway.

This is taken at our local Milton, Ontario (Canada) fair this past weekend.



I put my camera on my monopod, set the camera to a 2sec delay and then held it up in the air as high as I could. With the 2sec delay, I didn't have much control over when the shutter went. If I do this again, I'll have to get some sort of remote control to trigger the camera.

Got lots of stares doing this. <grin>

Take care,
Glen

Pretty impressive Glen.
only wish it were a tad smaller so I could see it all without scrolling!:G
interesting how that little boy the lady in green is holding, is so captivated with the camera
who knows what primal instincts you may have awakened.:-)
GW:bye:

I like this one alot. Seems like Dave Hill is a new following for PP treatment for shots. It does have a unique quality and look to it. Good effort here.

I press F11 to get full screen view and it really isn't that wide to not see all of it. In fact, when I view any and all photos posted I press F11.

Mahalo,

Tom

Love the shot, and I never knew about the f11 key. Thanks, Tom- that's cool! I don't have trouble with the width - my monitor is set for enough pixels across.

That's a good technique for getting an overhead view...I will definitely plan to use it. A while back someone had suggested using the flip side of this technique for photographing pets at their eye level...i.e. hold the camera updside down on a monopod and use a remote trigger. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks everyone for your comments.

I really had a lot of fun taking this picture.

Got a lot of stares from people when I stuck my camera up in the air. <grin>

Take care,
Glen

thats cool, wasnt there a famous photographer many years ago used to do something similar? he would hold his camera above his head and take pics behind him or something, he liked the idea that he didnt know what he was goin to get exactly

cant remember his name though

Hello,

I haven't heard about that photographer, but now that you mention it, I did remember hearing about this photographer.

http://www.cameravan.com/allabout/index.html

He covered his van in cameras and went around taking candid shots from the cameras that did work on his van.

Too cool!

I had forgotten about that!

Glen
