Exercise 3. Get Inspired

The photograph that inspires me the most in FP PandAOS (though they are all inspiring) is the shot on Page 18. Wow!! I have been trying to do that since I got the book, and have not been successful. Maybe I just haven't found the right subjects, but it sure looks easier than it is! It really has a wonderful impressionistic feel while being soudly grounded in "regular" photography.

Yesterday, I thought I had something, and I shot this, but it doesn't come close. Of course, as part of my bikeride, I only had my P&S with me. Maybe I'll go back tonight and try again with my SLR. Here it try 1 anyway. Suggestions?

An attempt at emulating the same shot that I also had a go at. As you say, there is a little difference between the forground and background colours here. Additionally, where I feel that we perhaps both fell a little short is that in FP's shot, the foreground was solid, apart from the 'window' to the background, whereas ours have 'holes' that allow the viewer to see items in the background other than that intended as a subject.

Hi Neil,

sorry I don't have the book with me today so I can't compare with the FP 'original'. But with these images I thing the problem might be that there is little contrast between the foreground and the main subject, To me I see too much pink and not enough of the berries.

The one at the bottom of the post I feel is the most successful with this technique. Though the colours are pleasing I feel that purple is a bit too strong a colour to be used as the OOF part of the image.

I think the 3rd photo is the most successful. You've been able to make the foreground just opaque enough to remove the context of the overall background. Yet in the gap, the plants are visible and identifiable.
