Photopost : Making a Splash

May 27th, 2012 No comments

So walking around today, I got caught at one point at the Courthouse waiting out a storm.

The rain gutters were throwing tons of water down on one tree branch in the midst of the storm, and I spent my time trying to catch some of the splash. With my camera. And consequently myself. :P

Photopost : Kite Aerial Photography in Juniper Park

April 30th, 2012 No comments

Went on down to Juniper Valley Park with Oshi and her family — the winds were strong and the kite went flying. The rig held up well this time, and having an assistant to hold the kite while rigging the camera helped. Camera still didn’t grab everything I wanted, but I’m getting a hang of rigging it now. I will probably build or purchase a more workable KAP setup soon.

Of particular note – a falcon went and buzzed the camera rig this time around. Unfortunately, the camera had decided to turn off on its own during that run. It was great though!

Photopost : DIY Beauty Dish

November 10th, 2009 No comments

Pet Plush and his Pet

Hey look, its a photo with flash as the only source of light, closeup, at f/1.4 and its NOT harsh or overexposed!

So I went and finished up the “Do It Yourself” Beauty Dish – based partially on instructions over here.  Its basically a slick way to diffuse light for closeups — and a fun little project to jam together over a few days with parts laying around.   Anyway, did some test shots just to play with it.   Shots of the Dish, along with notes and some more photos after the cut.

I cannot wait to take this on a full shoot.

Happy Bokeh Wednesday! XD

Sorry for not posting much this past week or two. Have been alternately busy with real life job, some Bioshock, and getting my rear end spanked at the poker table. But mostly dealing with the day job. I’ll post some fun stuff soon!

Camera Geekery: Split Prism Lens Photos

September 15th, 2009 No comments

Okay. This is definitely a post aimed square at the Camera Geeks.

If you’re a modern camera geek, you might not know about Split Prism focusing screens. By a simple rule of optics, these screens are an almost ideal focusing aid — and it shames me that they are no longer seen in most modern cameras.

More geekery and photos under the cut.

This was a “Faked HDR” from the raw files — since this was the tightest shot of the set.

BACHOOOOOOM!
