Cement Factory
< on 12/7/2020 7:51 AM >

A good friend of mine was doing a photography project and took me along with him to a cement factory. I'm rocking a Panasonic DMC-FH24 that I took the IR filter out of as an experiment. Is it worth taking cheapo cameras into an area where you might damage equipment either getting there or while climbing things?

I really like 3, 4, and 5. Not a fan of the framing in 1 and 2. I feel like in number one there's too much empty space on the ground, and it takes up too much of the frame. All of them, 1 and 2 especially, would be improved if they were leveled off. In that regard though, 4 is fine, and 3 and 5 are only slightly off.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll try using the camera's framing guide more. I don't really have an eye for these things yet so I'll work on not leaving so much empty space in my shots. I suspect that my tripod mount wasn't entirely on right, might have cross-threaded it. I'll slap a bubble level on my camera so I'll notice if it's off next time.

I agree with DescentOnARope and would add that in #2 I would've stepped further to the right to take the shot, personally. It feels imbalanced with the off-center view of the open window.

I really love #4 here though, and I wanna give you special props on that one - it looks like a scene from a shitty old black and white cult B-movie, like a cardboard UFO should come teetering across the sky.

I concur with what's already been said and also would like to say that #3 and #4 are my favorites by far. The smokestack in #3 looks so eerie and I love the contrast between the grass and sky in #4.
