I had an appointment with a doctor at the hospital today to check my vascular system. As I sat in a small room waiting I thought |I’d take ma quick snap. I placed the Fuji compact camera on the floor with the timer set to two seconds and took this view. No I’m not sat on a toilet
I was quite please with how aligned I’d got it.
This is part of my photo365 project, where I take a photo each day for a whole year…check out my previous entries in my blog.
This is a figurine placed in front of an electric fire and then the metering exposed for the fire. The result was a silhouette of the figurine, so I used a torch to illuminate that. The first few attempts were either too bright or had reflections on the background.
This one was done with the torch firstly positioned on the left so the shadow projected on the back and then a small amount to the right to evenly balance the exposure on the face. A slow shutter speed gave me time to move the torch around during the exposure and has created the blurry flames.
I took the Fuji point and shoot camera to work again today and got this shot as I left the office and the light was fading. It’s the disabled section of the office car park and my shadow from two floodlights. I initially tried to disguise the fact I’m holding a camera but the shape looked poor so I introduced the arm.
David’s sketches for the preliminary discussion about the V5 ePHOTOzine home page redesign.
I decided to shoot it at a jaunty angle and then use my cross processing preset in Lightroom.
We covered a lot of ground in the meeting and work will go ahead on it in a few weeks.
This photo is part of my Photo365 project where I take and upload a photo each day. The rest can be seen in previous pages of my blog.
It’s more than I have been doing in previous years and I’m building up a healthy collection of potential stock images. As the weather improves I intend to go further afield and hopefully the blog will reflect this.
I’m on day 52, and today’s photo was a struggle. I was in the office till late and when I got home I wanted to watch a friend’s Channel 4 Dispatches program about hospital food before I start on the gallery to look at today’s uploads. So I’ve had very little time but managed to squeeze in this shot – just before I ate it.
They say an apple a day is a healthy option – well it certainly was for the health of my Photo365 shot for today. I placed it on a red painted canvas and lit from overhead with a softbox to give the deep shadow underneath. I got the photo in one shot, ate the apple and here I am.
I went out round Sheffield this afternoon photographing old derelict industry buildings around Shalesmoor / Kelham Island. I decided at the beginning of the year to build up a collection of old historic buildings before they’re knocked down/ converted into flats. While I was out I spotted this abandoned shopping trolley.
There isn’t a supermarket near by as far as I know so I have no idea why it ended up there.
