A Couple Of Angels

I haven’t posted any images of cemeteries for a while, having been concentrating more on street photography, so here goes a couple of shots from two different walks.

I really like the Bokeh in the first image…

The second image is from a roll I took with an extension tube and a 50mm lens with the purpose of getting images of textures and things that would be good to use with blending layers etc… Since I took it I haven’t had much motivation to sit in front of my computer much so maybe I will get round to it one day…

Canon Photo5 Competition Registration

Just sent off pre-registration for this years Canon EOS Photo5 competition (Click here for last years competition)

After you register they send you a small box with 5 photo briefs in it which you have to shoot. It was pretty fun and I especially enjoyed working out what I was going to shoot.

If you are in NZ or Aus registrations open on the 10th of Sept… Check it out and have a go 🙂

Last year the briefs were:

Hundreds and thousands for a Macro shot

Practically Black

Some paint powder for a “Splat” shot

A pair of cardboard glasses for a portrait

Bokeh masks to create Bokeh effects

Thought I would show last years entry (and yes I know I dont shoot canon but who cares…)

Hundreds and thousands


Practically Black

I ran out of time to do the other 2 briefs but managed to get some test shots done

Here go a couple of Bokeh test shots…
