I still have a few more pictures of the polygraph to put up but realised that that I’ve only posted bits of machinery and technology in the last couple of days so thought it was time for a change.

I don’t know about anyone else but I find it much easier to both conceptualise and shoot inanimate objects than I do people. This is probably more to do with the obvious fact that something that doesn’t move is just inherently easier to photograph, but I think it’s probably also a question of preference. With objects I can often ‘see’ the finished result as I take the picture, but struggle to do so with people.

All that said, I think that one of the benefits of digital photography is that it really doesn’t matter how many bad shots you take. I have a 1GB microdrive in my G5 (which will hold around 219 RAW images) so have totally stopped worrying about taking multiple shots of the same scene. For this shot I had 19 originals, but for the various shots of the polygraph I took around 60 or 70 shots. I know, by pro standards, that that’s still very few, but as an amateur it’s not all that easy to justify using a whole roll of film on one subject ;-)
