Canon 7D, 96mm, f/4, 1/800s, ISO 800
I’ve always loved flea markets, and the pleasure of discovering completely different flea markets here in Shanghai is even greater than back in France. One of the things I love about them is repetition, the accumulation of identical (or similar) objects which makes for interesting photographic patterns. I was intrigued by those coins that have Chinese markings on one side and the US motto on the other. Probably from the colonial concession era.
Half a Pinecone
Canon 7D, 95mm, f/13, 1.3s, ISO 200
Still experimenting with Weston inspired still lives. I really like the texture of the pinecone, I’ll no doubt be doing more of those in the future. This was edited in Lightroom using X-Equals XeL 2.0‘s Scala 200 emulation.
Canon 7D, 96mm, f/8, 1/3s, ISO 200
In many ways this shot is the polar opposite of Pinecone in Darkness posted last week. It’s harder to light a subject over a white background than over a black one, I think, but I managed to pull off something that works here, I think. Edited in Lightroom with XeL 2.0
