It seems the stock market hasn’t been kind to a lot of folks the last couple of days…so I thought I might try to illustrate how they are feeling!
This was taken as an in-camera double exposure; first I shot the bill on a black surface (with I think -1 exposure compensation), then shot the flame in my gas fireplace as the second part of the exposure. The camera’s auto-gain for multiple exposures was on, and the two exposures were blended as we see here. This is the first time I’ve actually done a double exposure in-camera…I think it worked well in this case!
I had three pictures I really liked today, and had a really hard time choosing which one to post. In the end I settled on another shot of my car, with a sort of grainy black&white look, which reminded me that Mini has been around for quite some time.
A quick first try at light painting; this was in the garage tonight, lights completely out, camera shutter open for 6 seconds, and I moved around with a small flashlight highlighting certain parts of the car. And yes, the car was a little dirty. 🙂
I like this picture…I might have to try this some more!
I spent most of the day in the studio…and ironically didn’t take a 365 shot for today. There are some great shots from our shoot today, but I haven’t gone through them yet to post one. So…for today, you get a picture of the gray target we used for setting white balance, my assistant’s hand holding it, and a bit of a background we used for some of the shots. 🙂
We’ve all looked through window screens a million times. But how many times have we looked _at_ the screen? (best viewed larger – http://www.flickr.com/photos/gr2020/4286396216/sizes/o/)
Another shot I took on a whim, and ended up a little mesmerized while staring at it. Not saying I necessarily like it 🙂 – just that it freaks me out a little to stare at it.
Just happened to look this direction, with a camera in my hand, and snapped off two frames of what looked like pretty dramatic clouds.
I’ve often wondered if one could make a book of just cloud pictures. I bet you could.
The solution to many problems, flipping a coin!
For those who care about this sort of thing, this was taken in a single exposure using a flash (in this case a Nikon SB-800) in stroboscopic mode. Camera on a tripod, 1s exposure, pointed at a black background. Flash was off to camera left, connected to a radio trigger. When the shutter was open, I threw the coin and pressed the button on my flash trigger, which triggered the flash to fire at 20 flashes per second, capturing the motion of the quarter.
Another one I almost didn’t take, then almost deleted, then ended up using because it had sort of a unique look. I like the colors; seems to have a bit of an old-fashioned vibe.
And since they have square burgers, it got a square crop. 🙂
Super-quickie shot today, taken with a point-and-shoot (Nikon P5000) on a glass table, with a bunch of liquor-filled chocolates which somehow appeared in my office…
For lucky picture #13, the biggest crossword puzzle ever.
