Avenue Road : Unopen [Sep. 18th, 2006|04:08 pm]

Avenue Road

Avenue Road: a combination of 5 photos taken within a span of 4 minutes, handheld, of one street corner on Avenue Road. Best view Large, on Black.

One of the busiest streets, full of pedestrians and vehicles, but early on the cloudy Saturday morning of last weekend, we(the Bangalore Weekend Shooters) were there when the alleys were still dim, the shutters still closed, coffee, tea and breakfast still being served; a little less rush on the road.


Of open alleys, closed shutters,
Of dark passages, half open shops
Of unopen things, unlocking doors
Of waiting.

What a shot.. just love the 1st photograph. Did you also try time lapse ?

Thanks, time lapse requires a shutter-release cable(,a tripod and lots of time among othere things) and since the D70 does not support one, one needs to use the remote, which I didn't buy.

You can always plug it to your comp and do it via nikon capture (thats what I did long time ago)

I have the remote and I use it very rarely.. if you wanna borrow it, feel free.

comp? on the street! I think a comp can only be used in a controlled environment or a pre-planned shot from a good vantage point.
Will ask you for the remote when I think I will be needing it :)

Yes, I too like the first pic the most...but all of them are so lovely deepsan...beauty without colour.

And your photos, somehow, tell me of your love for Bangalore. Great work.

You have pretty steady arm too, looking at the N K Ramaiah board just a little shake. Cool!

actually there is no shake in the individual photos, the photos are not aligned because I was taking them handheld without looking through the viewfinder and without a tripod(see here), that is there are atleast three NK Ramaiahs in the combined photo.

Did you wait a lot for each photo? Since most of them are devoid of people or having just one person in it. I don't recall a recent bundh in Bangalore;-) Or was it after hours, since most of the shutters are closed. This is just an observation, the photos are class.

Didn't have to, we started on the street at around 7:30-8:00am Saturday morning and I don't think most shops open up fully till 10am, saw this(the alleys, shutters, cloudy light) early and it became my theme for the shoot. You can see some more photos from the group here.

Loved the first shot (Avenue Road). It sure is unnatural but very attention-drawing. Saw it yesterday at the cyber cafe.

Thanks Zeeshan, aren't photos themselves unnatural, capturing a slice of time.

From the point of view that they capture slices of time, they are unnatural. In the case of the above, however, the combination of several into one makes it seem unnatural and likeable in that.

If you ask me about if photos in general are unnatural, I wouldn't be able to say.
