Day 40 – Let’s Go to the Movies

15 May

This is the final day of my repetition theme week and I have to say I am going to miss it because this composition appeals to my aesthetics a lot.

Every time I go to the movies I want to take a photo of the rows of chairs and usually all I have is my  camera phone which simply can’t capture enough light to get any shot worth using so when we went to see “Iron Man 2” I was so happy that I had brought my camera along for the afternoon out. I didn’t have my tripod so I had to take about 15 shots just to get one that wasn’t too blurry from me shaking (I couldn’t get the angle I wanted if I sat it on the arm of a chair) but I did get a decent one and I love the composition of the photo, if I do say so myself.

I definitely want to try again when I have a good base to attach the camera to so I can be creative with the edits in Photoshop. I converted this one to black and white just like the last shot I took and added a bit of a tint to it. I truly hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

    Like holding your breath…

    The ONLY thing missing here is a huge picture of me on the screen with an umbrella in one hand and a model of the Enterprise in the other. Oh yeah, I’m wearing a raincoat, too.

    Yeah… that’s the ONLY thing missing from this shot.

      Just remember old Swap… This woman is armed and dangerous with PHOTOSHOP. (I’d pay good money for a shot like that!! LOL)

        Great compliment 🙂 Thank you.

        That image of you on the screen CAN be arranged you know… Like Bill said, I am quite good with photoshop

    LOL I didn’t bring it to the movies, I had it out with me for the day and there is ZERO chance on earth that I leave it in the car for any reason. 🙂

    This shot turned out so great. I remember you getting a bit frustrated cause the theatre was just dark enough that it was causing too much blurring for you.

    But you are so good I knew your persistance would pay off. I love the black and white, and the contrast you put into this. And this bit of blurring you kept enhances the shot. Sort of like static motion. It feels like the theatre is ominously waiting for people. I love it.

    If you could see me now, I’m bowing down to you. This is one of those shots that I would have never thought to take yet look at how stunning it is!! It’s so classy. The framing, the tint…perfection. 🙂
