The illusion of depth front to back is added by the use of wide-angle lens with a strong foreground motif. The dimension of time can be introduced by the use of a slow shutter speed to allows movement to be recorded.
I was deleting files off an external hard drive that was 99% full and came across these shots taken at an exhibition in London a few years ago.
I can’t remember exactly where the gallery was. Taken on the Canon G9 with a pre-determined 1/20th sec at 80 ISO. Even at 80 ISO the slowest it will go the G9 is noisy.
A comment about digital asset management – how you back up your files.
One of the cheapest parts of your computer is the plastic bearing on the fan that cools the processor. If that bearing fails the processor overheats very quickly and the computer dies. There can also be issues with the reliability hard drives as well.
I do not store any original picture files on my computer c: / drive, all my pictures are saved to a 1Tb external hard drive. The master external drive is backed up by two mirror copies of the master on separate 1Tb external drives. There is a saying in computing that says a drive has just failed or is about to fail!
Perhaps my setup is a little over the top to have two copies but hopefully it beats sods law.
Just as a foot note I use a free bit of software called Goodsync to do the backing up process.
