Photography – Week 43
This set has a pretty strong Fall theme- lots of leaves.
There are still kids in the woods if you’re there to look for them.
I’ve shot the Richmond Zombie Walk for the last few years and have used a few different lenses. This year I opted for the 85mm and went super shallow at 1.2. That made for some really interesting shots but also resulted in a large number of missed shots. The 85 is slow to focus and it needs a couple of feet to focus. The zombies had the tendency to lunge in too close and/or at the last minute. Even with those misses, I like how many of the shots turned out and I remain amazed by how much work and skill goes into many of the costumes. He was filming his son with a camera on a selfie-stick. He was so happy. The Straw Man who was part of the Wizard of Oz group which was an entirely impressive group. Seeing zombie parents with their children was odd. I think this guy was driving the car that was responsible for the traffic jam I was in. He looked lost amongst the police and wreckage. Traffic started moving before I could try another shot.
I feel compelled to lead with this unfortunate find. Hopefully, there’s a better explanation than a serial killer in training. cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward I don’t know if other people see these like urban still lifes . . . cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward Justin Bieber and friend cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward UMW comes to visit cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward
