Antique car show – Rockville, Maryland
On a back road leading to our house, not 5 miles distant, we found this replica of an old Signal gas station! While we took photos, we could hear a pool party going on beyond the brick wall of the back yard adjacent to us as the smell of barbecue wafted our way.
After you fill up, why not cruise on by Photos By Emilio for refreshments?
And thank you to the multi-talented Jaytee59 for my new gravatar. I love it!
Brent Mail is a professional photographer from Australia who recently interviewed Cole Thompson, a fine art photographer from the United States. It is a great interview. Please go take a peek! Among many of the things he said that resonated with me concerns the Rule Of Thirds:
“I have my own “Rule of Thirds”. (I don’t like Rules of Photography so I make up my own).
My Rule of Thirds says a great image is comprised of one-third vision, one-third the shot, and one-third processing.
The vision is what drives the other two-thirds.
It drives the shot because when I know what I want the final image to look like, that directs how I capture the image.
Likewise with the processing, which is where I do the majority of the creative work on the image, the vision drives it.”
Get used to his name. Cole Thompson. I expect to be quoting more of his interview from time to time!
