Post your household shots
Posted By: roentarre, 01-19-2007, 08:59 PM


This idea was suggested before. Trying to be creative around the house and capturing images with unique perspective could be fun.

We had already seen many great images captured inside people's own dwellings.

If we already had up to 1000 members registered for the site, we should get at least a few responses.

The weather this weekend is so terrible for me, I managed to get some shots around the house.













Cheers

Anything around the household would be suitable for posting.

Well done, everyone. The postings had been quite fun here!
To Alvin, trying to hook people into LBA?
Hahaha! No, I'm trying to satisfy my own LBA though.

The 135 mm Gemini had a dent and a few scratches on the glass, but it took the picture of the 55 mm you see here. These are both surprising little gems but I think I may try my hand at macro photography a little more this week lol!

Very nice shots, everybody! I just found this thread, so I'll show some of my photos (most of which I've already posted)

Here's a plant hiding from the cold in our spare bedroom


A few days later it bloomed




A comfy chair



Some candles (converted to "antique grayscale")



A centerpiece on our table - same conversion



And everyone knows what this is. . . (I use this with an Apple computer, by the way)



I hope Steve Jobs isn't too mad at me. . .

All these with the K100D and kit lens. No flash.

Quite a clean image with high ISO

This is quite a display of colour. You certainly love narrow depth of field

Nice series of household objects. Only using kit lens? That is impressive

Thanks! On most of them I just sharpened them a bit and added a little contrast - all in Adobe Lightroom. The kit lens seems to perform just fine for me, but I can definitely feel the LBA starting to set in.

Duh Vinci - I love narrow DOF shots, and yours does not disappoint. Back in college I took a photography class and one of the assignments was called "What is it?". Your photo here would have made an excellent submission.

Speaking of that assignment - wouldn't that be a fun thread? We take photos of everyday items, portraying them in ways that makes them hard to recognize. See who figures out what it is we're shooting. A "What is it?" thread.

Brian – really like the floral shots! Your Sam is awesome! I lost mine not too long ago (leukemia), though he lived a long happy life, very similar colors to yours!

Thanks, wasn’t really shooting this piece, but just happen to come across and found it rather interesting.

Thanks, appreciate the kind words!

Dark, ugly, gray and wet outside, so few more “household” items (FA 100 F3.5 - beginning to really like this lens).

Duh Vinci - awesome photos in your last post! I especially like the dictionary/glasses shot.

A few more of mine. . .

This one makes me want an Amaretto Sour or something. . .




Or maybe some coffee and Irish Cream
