Day 66 - Torchlight

18 August 2014, 21:24


Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens @ 200mm, 1/80 second @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.

We went out and played with a flash a little. This photo, however, has no flash. I’m probably going to start playing with lighting a lot. I need to learn how to utilise this resource.

In other news, I finally have an interesting idea for a shoot. It just needs models, props, an assistant or two, and a location. So not that much left to figure out…

Day 65 - Out To Get Me

16 August 2014, 17:09


Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens @ 165mm, 1/500 second @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.

The reason this is so badly focussed is that it startled me. I was shooting away happily when suddenly the Kaka reared up and I flinched, moving the plane of focus as the photo was taken. I suppose it’s an argument for not shooting wide open. I still like it.

This got hit by lightning. It’s a little shredded now.

Day 63 - Sun, then Hail

Canon EOS 70D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens

Two photos today. It was sunny this morning. And then it was hailing and the Zephyrmeter got hit by lightning. Lots of hail, as evident in the bottom photo.

It’s a tiny little Melissa, looking unimpressed.
