Aboriginal Art

Post by pop511 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 2:28 pm

Aboriginal Art has it's own very recognizable work.
Picture 1 shows a pole with the centre cut out, so I thought I would try to use this from one of the poles to create a frame as in picture 2
Have Fun;

Oh boy I really like the second one! I like the first one fine but the second breaks the mold. I'm always on the lookout for frames but I doubt I would have spotted this. Very well seen and photographed! (OK)

I'm a big fan of aboriginal art so these have appeal to me. The framing is a neat creative approach. Is this one of the places with no tripod allowed? I would also want to try a composite with differential focus, both the foreground "frame" and the subject seen through the middle being in focus. I can do that hand held with my current camera but couldn't with the prior one, so it depends on what tricks your equipment has...

Excellent thought, Minniev.
Foreground and background in focus, not thought of that one. This was taken with my 24-70. I've got a 100-400 lens, will try about F16 and see if I can pull them in. If not I'll do a 2 layer shot and merge.
Tripod? You have to get permission. Photo taken in Sydney Art Gallery

I've recently been getting away with using a monopod ( viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4201&p=33761#p33761 ). The camera is not mounted on it but rather cradled in it, and hangs around my neck otherwise while I use the monopod as a kind of walking staff. I've been in several museums with it so far and so far so good... (?) (I have not asked permission. "Better to ask forgiveness than permission." (Y) )

This quilt museum specifically forbids tripods, never mind flash... ImageUntitled by Charles Haacker, on Flickr

Good one, Chuck. Brings a smile to my face thinking of you leaning on your stick.
