  • Evan Alexander

    Evan Alexander said (3 Dec 2009):

    If you like this, consider Bill Sosin's photography @ He lives in Chicago & experimented with taking shots of people & lights in the background while focusing on the raindrops on his car window. Pretty impressive stuff. With even less background detail, the pieces become very subjective and abstract.

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (4 Dec 2009):

    actually this is not one of my favorite images. I fired two shots, one focused on the road and had the wiper blade in it, then fired again and it focused on the windshield. I believe the post processing has a lot to do with it's appeal.

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (4 Dec 2009):

    I will add if you like a tidy shot, pay attention to how you frame it out. it's not necessarily the subject's the presentation of it.

    comparing serving salad on a paper towel to in a bowl w/fork.
