Old Family Camera

By pRam
June 20th, 2011

This camera was our family camera, used to capture many memories. I wanted to try to capture this old technology in a beautiful way.

Nikon D7000, Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, Apple Aperture.

I think you accomplished your goal of getting a beautiful capture. However, the crop is extremely tight top and bottom and you really should be shooting stopped down as far as you can before diffraction sets in. The shallow depth of field here does not benefit you, especially for a picture of a camera you want to remember the details of.

This is great for documentation. Interesting to say the least. At most I think it's cool that your interest in it and sharing it with us here is great. Colors are a flare and definitely catching.

I would not use this as a wallpaper however. And the depth is totally off. The shot is far too close and I want to zoom out but I cannot. I fail to see why anyone would use this as a wallpaper. As well I think that the top and bottom are too close to edge as the previous comment states. Take a step back, turn the camera counter clock 10 degrees and put into focus the label more. That's the meat of the image, showing the branding. And keep in mind on an average user's desktop if they were to use this as a wallpaper, the task bar at the top or bottom, for this image the task bar would cut off part of the picture thus ruining the view.

Thank you for the comments and insights. I did wish that I was zoomed out just a little more and I was until I had to crop the photo for the dimensions interfaceLIFT requires. I am still learning. Please be patient.

My intent was to make our old family camera look better than it does sitting on my self collection dust and I think I accomplished that. I hope some enjoy it as their desktop. koshka2006, thank you for your positive comment.

Love the light, clarity and colour. Very eye-catching. Personally I don't mind the depth of field in this. Some may think branding is important where others may see the opening of the lens as the crucial part of the machine ;) To each his own of course.

While I agree that the tight crop is not optimal what I would love to see is the same image with more blank space to the left of the camera than to the right. This would be a much more appealing composition in my mind and would make the tight crop more tolerable I think. I'd like to see it. Maybe try again but taking a step back so you have more room to play with when cropping to the requires aspect ratio and put the camera much more to the right leaving a nice patch of blue to the left, in the direction the camera is "looking". You may already know this but you can achieve greater depth of field when close up by using a tripod (or equivalent) and a smaller aperture. I'd love to see a version like that for comparison.

This is amazing! I love the colors, and I personally think that the angle is just right. I love the simplicity, and I think it's great how it captures an era gone by! Good job!
