Camera Jewelry, Huge Lenses, and Too Much Photoshop?

| | Comments (2)

This is just a collection of photography related things that caught my eye over the past few weeks.

Jewelry made from "discarded camera components." (Via @Bllix.)

A huge lens, especially with no tripod.

I actually don't have a problem with the last image. It does look like the photographer bumped up the contrast of the image considerably and also did some dodging and burning, but there is no content falsified (i.e., cloning etc.).

Contrast enhancement and selective dodging and burning have been used by photographers (even and especially news journalists) from time immemorial. Remember when newspapers were black and white? In order to get images to appear at all, they had to be reworked. So I don't think this is inappropriate.

The last image really isn't good. I've seen 2 other images that were submitted from the same photographer, and while they look good, it looks less like a photo and more like digital art. The colours are great in some, but it just isn't real.

The giant lens? WTF.

And I prefer my camera and my photos to do the talking for me, not the bracelets made from camera parts. n_n
