Goodbye

August 5, 2010

Okay, firstly, I’m not feeling suicidal, I have no intention to kill myself (or anyone else) and this photograph isn’t intended to mock anyone that does have such feelings. It’s merely meant to be a piece of art. I got the idea for this after seeing a photograph at SeeOneSoul Photography. I liked Tina’s idea and wanted to replicate it. I tried to think of what to write, I felt the writing in the photo needed to be strong, and I went with what you see on the page. For me, this is very different to the normal photography I do and possibly the first time I really used RAW. RAW really made a real difference to the lighting of the photo. The amount of cleaning up in this photo was amazing, all the tiny dust particles etc… Anyway, hope you like it.

  1. Nice disclaimer! πŸ™‚ I think there might have been more of an impact if there were a little more bokeh, just a tad to perhaps blur the pills and the final message, just a thought. Either way, good job!

    RAW, ahhh yes, RAW can be amazing can’t it!

  2. Hi. Thanks for the feedback; it’s always great to get another perspective on things πŸ™‚


  3. I’m not sure why RAW would highlight dust spots (can anyone chime in on this) – the aperture you selected probably had the biggest impact and the fact that you have a light background (I tend to shoot a white paper to look for dust spots). Anyway Nigel, I didn’t give this any points in the July compo but it’s a decent execution of an idea but for me there was no emotional impact – I felt disjointed from the image idea and for this kind of subject I think you have to drag people in. Maybe it’s too clean, too clinical but somehow there’s an disconnect. I tried something similar (hand over the bath tub, pool of blood below…) but again I didn’t think it did the job well.


    • Hey Brhum, thanks for the feedback. πŸ™‚


  4. I love the lighting you got in this!! πŸ™‚
