Drain ‘n Junk

Today’s The Daily Shoot’s assignment is: “How low can you go? Make a photograph today from a low point of view.”

I knew I would somehow use my wide angle lens in today’s shot, just didn’t know what the shot would be! It’s (still) been nasty weather wise here (rain and rain and…more rain) but I was determined to get this shot. So there I was, on the corner of our street (under my umbrella of course) waiting patiently for a car (or two) to go by and they just were not cooperating with me (silly cars). So what do I do? Ask Amy to hop in the car and drive around the block a few times.

I was going to remove the lens flare at the bottom of the photo but decided that it added a little something! The other thing I found interesting was how the lawn across the street was nicely lit by our car’s headlights! πŸ˜€Β  Enjoy…

  1. Great shot David! I have a question though …. You didn’t mention this being a composite of different shots. So, where are the wheels? What she flying? LOL I just had to ask!

  2. Lol… You are so creative David! Nice use of your car. πŸ™‚

    Love everything about this shot — composition, details, creativity etc. Very nice POV and exposure time. Everthing works well together. Great job!

    • Hi Mike, trust me…I was nervous about it! I did have the camera on a tripod (little tiny one) and was using a golf umbrella to make sure the rain didn’t soak the camera (or me for that matter…I am sure there are people who might think I melt in the rain)! I used my wireless remote to trigger the shutter and used LiveView to see what I was shooting. πŸ˜€

    • Thank you for stopping by Eric, glad to see you have started posting again! Here’s my plug folks, I don’t plug often but Eric has some amazing photos…go check out his blog as I am certain future shots will be amazing! πŸ˜€

  3. This is an awesome low POV shot I have seen in a while.
    I like this long exposure shot. Long exposure with f/11 has captured quite a bit of details in this shot – like the texture on the gravel road, smooth flow on the water, trails etc. Gives the feel I am sitting there by the drain.

    Well done David!

    • Thank you Sasi for such a great compliment! Believe it or not, Amy only drove past four times (I didn’t want to abuse the help…and it was raining)! There’s definitely something to be said about setting up prior to shooting! πŸ˜€
