Let’s see if you can figure out what I’ve shot here. Have a look at this first image and see if it gives you any clues. Yes, there’s a mix of metal and rope, but maybe I should give you another clue.
Okay, so you can clearly see there is also strong, brightly coloured fabric involved as well. So what is your mind suggesting? A tent, perhaps? No, I’m afraid not. (But I could plan some tent shots in the future and make a mental note to use the post title "The Tent Commandments".)
This shot will probably give you the strongest clue so far. If your brain is starting to crank up into top gear, let me give you another pointer as well – you need trees or sturdy fence posts to put up one of these.
If you figured out that my subject is a hammock, you’re absolutely correct. I shot these images in a close friend’s back yard last week. I reckon the first shot in this series might have been a bit stronger with a true macro lens, but I think the depth of field is still pretty handy for a standard 18-125m lens.
(The Odd Shots concept came from Katney. Say "G'day" to her.)
