Day 54 - Overkill?

13 July 2014, 19:08


Canon EOS 1100D, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, 1/200 second @ f/4, ISO 500.

That’s pretty much everything I can connect to my camera (there’s a strap or two missing, and I suppose I could put it all on a tripod). The battery pack is a little hard to see.

Home tomorrow. At last. For a few days.

Day 53 - Speedlite

12 July 2014, 15:21


Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens @ 140mm, 1/250 second @ f/2.8, ISO 400.

That’s my new toy. A Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. And it’s going off in that photo too. I’m adding blutak and business cards to my photo gear now. Well, once I get a pile of business cards.

Day 52 - Phantasmic Melissa

11 July 2014, 18:47


Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, 8 seconds @ f/4.5, ISO 100.

I played with my last photography toys tonight. Dad’s ancient flash and a reflector. I can’t trigger the flash remotely, but that doesn’t matter with an 8 second exposure.

Could be improved with a tripod. But fun anyway. And it really needs at least one other person to help out.

Day 51 - Handle

10 July 2014, 16:38


Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens @ 102mm, 1/1000 second @ f/2.8, ISO 100.

With the death of Aperture and my current lack of Lightroom (something that I’ll rectify in Wellington), I’m not that interested in shooting every day at the moment, as I’m going to lose all processing (and maybe even more) when I switch software.

That said, here’s a handle.

Day 50 - Moo Cow

6 July 2014, 16:35


Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, 1/800 second @ f/2.8, ISO 100.

Went to visit Melissa’s friend today. She has animals. Including this cow, which is a good example of “there are no bad photos, your face just looks like that sometimes”.

I’ll put the rest of the photos up on Facebook when I’m back on Internet that understands the meaning of the word “upstream”.
