Seeing in Sixes, Set 3

Postby Matt Quinn » Sat Sep 09, 2017 2:05 am

The third pair. # 6 is a close-up of the slot in the beam of the barn door; a board is slid into it to close from the inside.

#1 a good shot Matt, I’d like to see the shadows lightened ever so slightly just so I’m not starring at black…their is detail there..

#2 good texture but just not enough here to hold me Matt….the right side also seems soft..

Very helpful comments. Thanks. In #1, I thought the stuff in the shadows was distracting so I dimmed it out. I'll go back and look. I agree on #2; I had to choose between this photo and another and took this because of the story line. Matt.

Matt, Have you heard of LensWork's Quarterly special publication called: Seeing In Sixtes? I should really enter something next time around.

Yes Ernst. I entered this set this year and heard about a month ago that mine were not selected. You should submit; your material fits well. Have you seen the latest Monograph? "China: Land of My Heart." It was published about two weeks ago. Inspiring. Matt

I haven't seen the latest Monograph and haven't subscribed to those as I should have. The best photo publication I get in my mails is LensWork Quarterly, believe I have about 125 copies.

You have a treasure-trove library. I go back often to past editions and brows. The series on the Meeting Houses in Massachusetts was stunning, I thought. Matt

I'm very interested in the wooden dowels. Wonderful! S-
