The Rose… Part 2… Digital

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.

More Light Painting Experimentation

A bit more experimentation with light painting…

Balls Of Light At Kau Point

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 🙂

Ferry Sunset

Sunset taken from the Interisland Ferry leaving Picton a couple of years ago.

I think there might have been fires in Australia which accounts for the intense colour of the sky. (No modification in Photoshop)

Sorry this is a quick stock one while the excitement builds for the Rolleiflex I get back tomorrow!

Ok this is what happens when I get in the proper headspace for photography and then a couple of friends happen to come along.

I had been thinking of using my garage as a studio (albeit a small one) but had always had problems with doing it because my 500W studio lights only have half and full power so getting them powered down enough to use in a small space is kinda problematic.

The workaround for this was just using the modelling lights and bumping up the ISO to round 800 (which using a D70s means noise galore). I kept the white balance on the camera set to Daylight to get the golden light which fitted this shoot.

Yes its a Self Portrait

Random Shop windows

A couple of random shop window shots from London

The trick with shooting through windows is to place the front of the lens directly against the window so you dont get any reflections and it also means you can use slow shutter speeds.

Forbidden Fruit?

Shot on Maymia RB67… Was slightly annoyed that I cut the end of the key off.

The idea was to make the light look like it was coming out of the apple.

Red Splat

Originally shot for the Canon Eos Photo5 Competition

Nikon D70s ISO 200 f8 1/640 sec (which is kinda odd cause the D70s is only supposed to sync up to 1/500 sec)

Red Splat 2

This one didnt make the cut for the comp but was kinda cool

A small setup montage.

I really like how crap the setup is (random piece of perspex with holes drilled into it balanced on an upsidedown chair on the family table) but how good the end result looks… I feel its a good example of what you can do without spending a whole heap of money on fancy equipment.
