Fortunately,now "Spot welding" in many cases changed to a robotic system,specially in automobile manufactures.ofcourse,still I see this manual system beside of modern tech.
During a control plan for reduce of all risk factors ,I have to be in a discussion with employers for changing it to a modern way with statistics info,costs info,diseases,workplace absences,ergonomic reasons and ...
In this jobs,workers are in exposer of some hazards like a heavy instrument(gun of spot welding) and its stress for shoulders,hands & back,also fume & air pollution,impact of the spark with a high speed,noise,...it's enough,...It's a very hard jobs.
Is it my job hard,too?!!:)

Another of your industrial shots. Hmm so what happening here ... lots of color, an indoor low light situation.. so camera shake but the blur is actually working in this case and nice welding light shower. Maybe you should create a theme on "Occupational Hazards" now. :)

I like the dynamism in this one, with the slower shutter speed catching some movement, may less useful for the HS manual that you're working on in my imagination.

This is a very, very modern shot and you've made it more futuristic by blurring it.
A lot of colours and details, "another" shot from you but a nice experiment !

You already know my opinion about your experimental style in industrial scenes. I believe you will catch an extraordinary style.
Trying is better than to be sure.

A very colourful picture Mohammad, the blur give a unusual image, it seems painting on a water-colour or a modern painting, I find this lovely!

One more shot in this collection of good documentary contributions. Good focus on the sparks. Well done Mohammad !

I recognise the blur of a hand-held, no-flash snapshot. Many plain-coloured surfaces. Don't know what camera you use, but if the background was a bit blurred the figure and action in the front would have stood out better.
It's nice to be able to practise your hobby while your working.
And yes photographers have a hard life too ;-)
Think about the habbit of looking at things with one eye, the constant tension of the indexfinger on the shutterknob, the off-hanging shoulder where the heavy camera-bag hangs, the strain of the back and neck while trying to find the good frame... :-)

I must say that when thinking of an hard job, I always was mentally confronted with the lack of colors
In your picture, man seems so small in front of this well-armed machine and compared to it, so colorless, so color-disadvantaged. The fact that you have photographed the man from behind underlines this disadvantage. I like the colors flowing into each other but I don't like the backache flowing into the handache, the pollution onto the lungs... it's enough. Well, your photo is in any case a wonderful documentary.

Hi Mohammad, I really like this series of yours. It gives a good insight in workers' daily lives in Iran, and we get to learn about the safety aspects and considerations from your notes. This one looks very colorful and animated, with the "shaky" appearance giving it a moderately abstract quality. Very nice.
The location reminded me of a photo I had posted on TrekLens a while ago.

I always liked the welding sparks effect on the camera!
As for the job, I believe there is no dumb-jobs... The worker on your picture is doing a job I could never do... But, that does not mean the job cannot be safer! ;-)

Beautiful colors here, Mohammad. And good motion blur. The mechanical movements of both machine and man are very nicely captured. It adds to the noise and full sensory experience this shot conveys. I especially like the streaking blue at the top and the movement of the head. And of course the sparks are excellent. It's something that could be in factories in many places. Very full of energy and danger. One slight change from this flow and all sorts of things could go wrong. Well done.

Des gerbes de couleurs pour cette réalisation lumineuse, beau travail, Mohammad, bravo;

It moves a lot and its dangerous. You have made the photo that suit to the subject.

oh my god. another one of your Hard jobs, which i would call-Dangerous jobs. nice colors and motion and sparks.. nicee

Very colorful, & good use of dof.

bonjour Mohammad de belles couleurs pour illustrer ce du travail, belle réalisation, bravo.

colorful and action shot Mohammad, nice photo!

I don't know how you made, mohammad, but the "shaking" effect give a great movement dynamic to the shot. The sparkles spurting from the welding post reinforce that feeling. The rhythm appears to accelerate, and all mechanical details seem to be delicate to manipulate and dangerous for workers. One would believe oneself dragged in the mechanism infernal of the assembly-line work. Better and better, Mohammad, ...Better and better. Well done, and I'm waiting your next shot of the series.

Colourful, interesting scene - still I am not so happy of the blur here makes it difficult to catch the details. Still an interesting experiment..

Sometimes it is a matter of choices. It is hard by itself but harder if you choose to. Doing a job is a matter of the heart. Maybe that was why, great structures were those who had built it, with their hearts.Someone said, know your heart and you know your God. And hope, you know what is your job.
And your life. Salam Mohammad.

great work, I like the movement here, very good work and the sparks are electrifying, really well done

You make this hard job look very artistic and colourful! Nice!
Jeppe (18654) 2004-10-05 15:13
Very fine graphics you got on this image - I would say you made a paintwork of this work situation - thanks Mohammad for sharing your professional works as well - I like them.
