I was digging around for an object of interest for this challenge and I just so happen to unearth this old camera my grandfather gave to me. I thought it looked neat so I blew off some of the dust and positioned it on a black drop cloth and lit it with a simple desk lamp. Once I looked at the shot I liked the look of it, the lighting seem to capture the oldness of the object. The light is a bit hot in some places, but I thought it added to the "oldlook" of the photo.

This is an amazing photograph. The texture on the camera and the gold coloration is wonderful. Beautiful - 10

I like this shot. The sepia, of course, adds to the antiquity of the object. Very nice.

you may have tried for the lighting effect that resulted, but not enough midtones on the camera and the brightnes it a little too bright for me.

I like how you managed the exposure in here!. 10!

My camera collection has several like this but they're in much better condition and I've taken better pictures of them. But I wasn't limited by the light source. Because of the challenge I'll add a couple extra points.

Good sepia tones, light and shadow pick out details interestingly.

You could have dusted it first! Very nice, the dust does add an interesting texture.

I think the plush upholstery is distracting to the wonderfull lit and grainy camera. how about a 9?
10/21/2002 09:49:00 PM
You needed a bit more light on the lens.
