Haloed. 4000s f/9 ISO200 shot at 40mm.
It was a beautiful, beautiful day yesterday. Got up to 50F I believe. So I took a walk outside as there was some really neat clouds passing by. And I mean passing by, they didn't stick around in one place too long. I noticed the sun was at the perfect...
Foggy Lines. 160s f/5.6 ISO200 shot at 150mm.
Just got back from breakfast and with this minor heatwave, the ground being so cold we got a nice fog. I wanted to go back out and get a different shot but by the time I would have been ready the color and everything wouldn't have been there, so...
Haven't picked up the camera for a few days. An unflattering selfie shot in IR and processed to give a grungy look.
Reflects my recent mood and the slack facial muscles of a person with Parkinsons.
Mood is on the way up again. :)
Giddy Up. 1/40s f/4.5 ISO640 Shot at 40mm.
My youngest niece on the rocking horse. First thing she does when she comes over, goes to the stairs looks up and says "Can I ride horsey?"
Oh and I had fun playing with the lens flare option in Perfect Effects 9.
Breaking The Sky. 1/4000s f/7.1 ISO200 Shot at 40mm.
Had very interesting cloud coverage on the 14th. And my go to tree was there to make it a neat shot. I had a hard time deciding between this one and 2 others. One almost exactly like this but a lot brighter and the other was in landscape...
This is a long exposure (night) shot. This was the least noisy of several I shot and was a 10 sec exposure at F2.0.
I set the camera up before sundown and could have done better with the framing as I was shooting blind tonight at 10:30 pm.
In The Sunset. 1/250s f/5 ISO400 shot at 66mm 3 image stitch.
Looked like it was a pretty good sunset but I didn't have time to get out and find a place to really capture it. So I went with a silhouette of the trees.
This is a long exposure night shot. After trying a few exposures this result, 10 sec at F2.0, was the best.
Lighting was incandescent inside - no flash used. I was not sure if there would be enough IR to give an image.
Interesting is the narrow patch of garden outside lit by a mix of...
My Other Hobby. 3.2s f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm 3 shot vertical pano.
Taking snkenai's advice after a busy day and show a part of my house. Never got a chance to get out but don't know if I would have as it was pretty cold again and windy. So here is where I do my lifting.
Snow In The Spotlight. 0.4s f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm.
It started snowing a little bit on the 11th and there was a nice atmosphere, plus it was fairly warm compared to the week before and even now. I spent probably an hour or more outside doing long exposures. I think I enjoy the slowed down...
A couple of members have posted book-shelf images so I thought I'd try using infrared.
First shots using built-in flash were disappointing so went for window light and used a tripod (1/8 sec at F2.5).
Books with a lot of red in the cover are overexposed and have little detail.
Tried something different - this is a 3 shot bracket developed in HDR Efex Pro and then Silver Efex Pro to give a high key glow.
The initial scene has bright and dark areas and the +2, 0, -2 brackets were set in camera. I also shot in RAW, I have been using jpgs in days 1 to 10.
Riding The Sunset. 0.5s f/4 ISO500 shot at 50mm.
Spent most of the day driving/riding in the car so didn't have a whole lot of opportunities to shoot. But as the sun was setting, I had to get a few shots of it as the colors were stunning. So I resorted to a slower shutter speed and got some...
Shadows... Again. 1/160s f/4.6 ISO400 shot at 70mm.
Too cold outside to really spend time trying to get a decent shot. But in the next few days we're expected to have a "heat wave"! It's suppose to reach 35F! So I decided to look for some neat shadows and this is the one I landed on.
Tangled Meets Frozen. 1/160s F/5.0 ISO400 shot at 40mm
I decided to brave the cold and go out for a quick walk around. It may have been a bit warmer but it was still really cold. I was out for only about 15 minutes. Got a few shots that I liked and this one just spoke to me with the...
I mentioned revisiting this tree on Day One and this is the first new leaves and bud. R and B channels inverted in PS and local contrast boosted with ALCE.
The brighter new leaves is, I suspect, due to less IR absorption as a protective measure.
Shadows Playing 1/400s F/5.6 ISO320 shot at 150mm.
With the extreme low temperature outside I decided to just get a shot through the window. I may attempt to get outside tomorrow as its suppose to be warmer. Will make it to double digits but with a wind chill still in the negatives.
Frozen Sunset 1/250s F/4 ISO320 Shot at 40mm
I started out getting some close ups of various things around the yard covered in snow for my safety shots. As the day progressed it looked like there might be a nice sunset. It was cloudy but it was a thin layer.
A little after 4 I looked...
Through Glass. 1/320s f/4.5 ISO200 shot at 53mm.
It was a beautiful morning sky this morning and I was expecting another cloudy day. I wish I would have been up earlier to get out and catch the sunrise. It would have been miserable though close to below zero but I think it would have been...
