Neodigital Art | Something inspired
I want at least one picture to submit to a summer art exhibition, perhaps next year. I’m thinking of shooting all river and canal pictures. This was taken on the River Tame on Sunday. I did the edit with PhotoScape. It’s unusual because the river has flooded recently. What do you think? Exhibition material?
This was shot some time ago with my Fujifilm S5600. This is at 72 dpi, the first one is at 400 dpi. I think it makes a difference. The Nikon was set on fine (jpeg), but for a medium size photo. For an exhibition picture it might be enlarged to maybe a metre wide, so I want the camera set as large as possible. That would give a file size of over 12 Mb.
This one is in grey scale and again I took it on Sunday with the Nikon D3200 (DSLR). It looks good against this black background. Do I really need the arches in the picture? I think the stuff washed up adds to the picture.
Patterns are important in these pictures and they are far more prominent in this picture. You can see that dark cloud was coming in from the West, but there were still shadows. I don’t want really harsh light, but getting the light just perfect would help to make the shot. The sun is south-west, so over to the left. Earlier in the day would probably mean less light on the arched bridge, but more light shining through the first bridge.
The sun came out more for this shot. See the difference? I’ve lost the interesting fence on the left!
I don’t usually like people in the shots but these kids on bikes make this shot more interesting. Not very artistic though…
What do you think? Would you like to see river and canal inspired pictures in an art gallery or even on the wall of your own home. A lot of people are now investing in art because it’s an investment with a double edged return. It provides a valuable asset and investment and something to enhance the look of your living spaces too. How cool is that?
