Some shots from last week when I had a couple of sick children during school holidays and a kowhai tree outside my window.

Sometimes you just don’t have that much space to work with 🙂
I ended up shooting from across the hall…

This was an image I made for a friends birthday invite but I ended up framing it for her as well.
Its every pair of glasses she has ever worn 🙂
All glasses were shot on a product light table individually and then put together in Photoshop.

This is the second part of the rose that I found on the beach last week.
This time I was playing with light fall-off with a saftbox directly above and very close to the rose.

I went camping the other week and we camped at the base of this tree, possibly because I wanted to shoot star trails through it, unfortunately it clouded over and there were no stars to be seen.
There also seemed to be a bumble bee nest quite close by…

I managed to get one roll of film through my Underwater Nikonus V over summer as well…

The last lot of images from the weekend of Urbex/Parkour.
The only problem with going out with a group is that you cant be everywhere at once.
Still need to practice a bit more 🙂

First edit of Parkour Images from Sunday

The only shot I have processed so far from yesterdays Urbex/Parkour crossover 🙂
More to come 🙂
Last post from the GCSB protest on last weekend in Wellington.
These ones were taken on a Nikon FG20 which I bought from an Op Shop for $35. The film is also 8 years expired which gives it a bit of flaring and blocking out of the blacks.
I quite liked the effect as its not your usual super sharp, super well exposed documentary photos we are use to seeing.
Here goes some shots from last weekends shoot with Melissa, Alicia and Renee.
These are from my F5 that was loaded with Ilford Delta 3200 Film and were possibly the only images that really looked like I saw them in my head. I only started using it near the end of the shoot rather than reloading my RZ67 and Rolleiflex.
Sometimes you just cant really beat using film 🙂

I have always wanted to do more shooting in the rain and what better way than with un underwater camera 🙂
With the end being neigh for the old school it was time to go back before it was knocked down to make way for a retirement village.

When I was looking through my film in the fridge preparing to go away for 4 weeks holiday I noticed one roll had 9 shots off it already (a big 9 was scrawled on the outside of the film cassette). I ended up using the rest of the film a few weeks ago and when I got it developed I found some picture from the rugby 7’s from maybe 4 years ago.
Anyway here goes a few of them. Gotta love film for getting surprises 🙂
This was a while ago now but with moving house and quite a few technical issues with the time-lapse processing have meant that it was only completed today something like four weeks after it happened. The Performance Arcade is part of the Wellington Fringe Festival and involves art installations in and around a whole bunch on large shipping containers.
I had been contacted by Jo, one of the organisers due to an older post( HERE ) I put up and asked if I wanted to come and take some shots around this years event. I had been interested in trying out some more time-lapse photography over a longer period of time so asked when the containers were due to be dropped off.
It turned out that it was scheduled to happen on a Monday and the window of delivery was 7am until 7pm so this worked out perfectly for a long time-lapse.
The day turned out to be really windy and cloudy and due to safety I spend most of the day standing up road cones that had blown over and then as the wind got stronger in the afternoon standing beside my camera to make sure it wouldn’t blow over as well.
I did manage to get a few shot with Rollei as well though when the wind wasn’t too gusty.
The really sucky thing was that I was moving house from Wednesday and didn’t get to go back as planned and shoot a whole heap more time-lapses of people setting up individual containers or members of the public interacting with the installations .
I guess there is always next year… The video is at the bottom of the page
Did I mention it was not only windy but cold too…
It was warmer and more sheltered inside the containers…
Marty the truck driver could seriously put a container anywhere…
And mean anywhere…
About an hour after I started shooting it started to lightly rain and the only plastic bag I could find was from someone’s lunch. On the first attempt to put it over the camera a gust of wind blew it away which resulted in a chase followed by me falling over just missing it and then three people chasing it round the containers 🙂 fun times. I got away with only minor injuries…

A bit more experimentation with light painting…

This is where I went camping for a couple of weeks over Christmas 🙂
Happy New Year!
I’ve pretty much only just got back from a months holiday (which was AWESOME!) so hopefully you should see some posts turning up again.
While I was away I took a stupid amount of film and now I have a stupid amount of developing to do….. So it might be digi shots for a bit til I get sorted
The shot below is a test shot I did using my D90 with the intention to go back and shoot a super long exposure on film. Unfortunately I didn’t get back to take the one on film 😦
Revisted Kau Point again yesterday afternoon and since we had been there last it looks like someone had a bit of a party there, complete with generator, smoke machine and they even put in a toilet and shower. It didn’t feel half as spooky as it did the first time we were there.
I hadn’t tried balls of light for a while so decided this was the place to have anther go… Still need to work on my technique a bit to get the balls perfectly spherical but was happy with a least one of them 🙂
