Day 112

Hi Everybody!

Today I found this old radio at home; I have to be honest and tell that I don’t like that much the ancient things, but I decided to see how a picture of this would come out, and I liked it.

I admit this is one of the most challenging photos that I’ve taken, looks very simple, but I took over 40 photos to get this one; I had to think about the best place to place it, about lighting and the background.

At the end, I realized that ancient things, specially this stereo are not ugly as I thought, they are just different; I got close to the radio and saw so many details that I never looked at before, and that’s what makes it charming.

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 22 mm, ISO 320; f/4 ; 1/2 s.

Hola a todos!
Hoy encontré este radio viejo en la casa; a decir verdad, nunca le había puesto cuidado porque las cosas antiguas no me llaman mucho la atención, pero decidí hacer unas fotos para ver como salian y me gustó el resultado.

Tengo que admitir que es una de las fotos más desafiantes que he tomado, se ve muy simple y sencilla, pero tomé más de 40 fotos para llegar a éste resultado, había que pensar bien en que lugar poner el elemento para que la luz fuera apropiada y contrastara con su fondo sin llegar a perder importancia.

Al final, me di cuenta que las cosas antiguas, y en especial este radio, no son tan feas como creía, nunca me había acercado tanto a mirar todos los detalles que tiene y eso es lo que le da su encanto.

Datos de la foto: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 22 mm, ISO 320; f/4 ; 1/2 s.

Críticas, comentarios y/o sugerencias son bienvenidas.

Saludos!

Pablo.

  1. What a great subject, you ask for feedback so here I go, you can agree or not – dont mind!
    I think the beauty of the radio could be more enhanced if you step back a bit, perhaps even include some of its environment gently out of focus, (the white edging spoils it for me) then I would correct the verticals in PS under Filter/Distort/Lens correction.

  2. Pablo, as a lover of old things I think this photograph is great. And you are right, the details are what often give items their charm. You have inspired me to photograph an antique radio my father has at his house soon. Thanks.

  3. Este radio es una fantasía….yo tengo uno que era de mi abuela…un poco mas moderno pero igual…tarde o temprano su radio será un Philips, así reazaba la propaganda de la época…ah…y una cosa que me fascinaba de estos equipos ere el “ojo mágico” arriba a la izquierda en tu radio, que era el señalizador de sintonia y se ponia verde cuando se sintonizaba…que bella foto que hermosos recuerdos!!!!!!!!!!!
