Learning to throw clay
Posted By: Bactman, 05-29-2008, 11:59 AM



I'd appreciate any critiques or comments.

Taken during the Broad Ripple Arts Fest here in Indianapolis.

K100D with Tamron 28-75mm at 75mm, F4.5 (I think)

A lovely photograph. While I usually go for very contrasty black and white images, I feel as if the natural tones used here are absolutely perfect.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Wonderful shot.

Bump for great justice. This image needs more exposure.

I have to agree with ftpa, this is a wonderful capture. A real story being told.

Wonderful image. As the others have said there is a real story being told here. You can see the care and sensativity of the instrutor as he/she guides the little hand. I know why they call this clay "throwing".....I have tried this and I always end up THROWING the clay. LOL

Something about hands and B&W shots, so powerful. Hands can say so much. They seem to tell a story. There was another hand & clay shot posted about a week or two ago that was also excellent (perhaps it was by Bactman also). Very nice subject.

I really didn't remember posting this picture before, but if I did I apologize. I'll try not to do it a third time. Maybe ...

This is an exceptional picture; I'd frame it and put it on the wall.
