Notes On Darkness
I had planned on posting this earlier but felt I may as well wait to find out what the new iPhone would bring resolution wise. Of course they would give me a new resolution to crop to so I have my work cut out for me once again. From this point on any desktops posted will be with the new longer iPhone 5 resolution. This of course presents the problem of having even less image to work with as I normally shoot desktop images horizontally and with such a thin sliver or an image to work with it will be even trickier to make pleasing or functional compositions with many of my older images. In the future I will consider shooting certain things in portrait simply to have iPhone specific images based on a composition more appropriate for the iPhone. I will also make a new wallpaper pack for the new phone and have it ready on or around the launch of the new device so keep an eye out.
Anyway, all the tech talk out of the way, let’s have a look at todays desktop shall we. This was taken while in Seoul the last time in my apartment overlooking a park. I had bought this egg at a cheap market in a subway earlier that evening and was messing around with it when I thought it would be fun to shoot a few photos. This is a bit odd I realize but I thought some of you would find it fun. The egg is a simple LED night light that fades between colors. I waited until it tuned white then, snap, grabbed this photo. While the light is not really all that bright, in the black of night it was still a number of stops brighter than the objects around it so because I chose to expose to capture some of the surrounding environment the egg ended up being a solid white shape in the middle of the frame. While I typically avoid this kind of blatant over exposure of part of an image I think it adds something to the feel overall. Like a hole cut out of the scene. At any rate, enjoy and let me know if you have any trouble with the fancy new tall iPhone crop.
