Don’t you just love it when an image comes out just like you saw it in your head 🙂

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…

Back From Holiday And A Test Shot

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 😦

More Holga Panos

Sorry have been a bit slack putting up posts of late… Youngest daughter is in “constant stream of talking” mode which makes it a bit hard to concentrate for longer than more than 3 seconds (she has interrupted 3 times just in this sentence).

This combined with 7 rolls of film sitting round waiting to be developed means I having been getting on with things as much as I probably should…

Anyhow here goes some more shots from the Holga Pano camera I converted 🙂 Enjoy.

Urban Jungle

The council has put in free WiFi internet on the waterfront of Wellington, probably for the Rugby World Cup later in the year, so there has been an increase in computer users in this area.

I kind of like the comparison of the real trees and the large pole structures as well as the fact that there is no one else in the image apart from the computer user.

Kids In Trees

I usually don’t take images of kids but couldn’t help myself with this one… The kids were climbing to get a better view of the Rugby 7s fashion show that was going on…

The Fall of the Last Tree Standing

This is the fall of the last tree left standing on a lone hill next to a power pylon.

I shot this wide because the tree was on a massive lean towards said power pylon and the tree fellers truck (which he moved before the tree came down).

It ended up being a bit of an anticlimax due to the fact that they tied a steel cable to the digger and pulled it down before it was cut all the way through.

Original series was 17 images but have narrowed it down a bit. I also kooked the focus due to using slow film so have made it small and “Lomofied” it a bit. Yes I know im a hypicrite

Death of a Tree

Sequence of a pine tree being felled.

Amusing things to note: Shot on Ilford Pan F+ 50 ISO film so had to shoot at f2.8 so not to get motion blur and had 9 month old Samantha in the backpack trying desparatley to grab the camera strap.

More tree related shots coming.
