Week 37, Day 262, January 11, 2010, Descent


This is the 5th photo in my cellar series.  These are the old steps leading to the basement. 

Believe it or not we had to put in a new 250 gallon fuel tank for our furnace.  These is the passage way that we had to take our tank down.  It just barely fit.

Lessons Learned:

  • My new camera has a live view setting.  This allows me to view the photo with the LCD panel on the back of the camera.  This was very handy for the tripod shot in which it wasn't easy to view through the view finder.  Most of the time I still prefer the view finder.
Photo details: Exposure time 30 sec, Aperture f/22.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 17 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, tripod.

Awesome, I love the ice skates hanging on the right. They give kind of a creepy overtone to the image.

I love this shot! It gives you a feeling of a creepy unfinished basement, but the ice skates on the right seem innocent and add so much to the picture. Nice work!

The sepia is magnificent as well!

This is my favorite one so far. It looks really cool. I have to get a tripod.

I love this shot. I am, I swear, heading into the cellar today with the camera.

I really like this series, a Live View is worth its weight in gold.

Great shot. I love the way the skates pop on the side.

When I saw this photo I thought this is why sepia toning was invented. Great image. Those hanging skates are just the thing to add contrast too. This one is a real keeper Steve.

PS -- I'm a viewfinder kind of guy myself, but I do wish I had an LCD screen on my F3 when I'm shooting macros on my tripod.

Oh my. Shades of my grandmother's house in northern Wisconsin. This photo really conjures up some old memories.

I love a richly colored sepia shade - This is one of those & I love it.
