Smoking a Flare

26 01 2010

This photo really speaks for itself,  no flash, Canon 40d 17- 85mm Lens at 17mm.

i was covering someones birthday party at this club by the docks  so big bounce flash.

But when I saw this shot i turned off the flash and cranked the Iso right to 800, focused on the light just out side of the flare and snaped. I had only one chance so I had to make it count.

Floating Laterns

Hey there photo fans, I took this through the reflection of the black coffee table at a resturant in Waterloo.I found that by doing this I eliminated most of the background rubbish that would be there if i took the image dead on.

Canon 40d 1.8, 1/40, 125 ISO, Bounce Flash WB Flash

Really love using the aged photo adjustment on lightrooms at present if gives a real warm almost golden glow to this image.

Really wanted to grab the excitement of the night here and i think i got it.

Feels like Christmas without the green

Wide angle shot peering over the Serpentine lake in Hyde park

Love the way the colours came out in this shot, the rich orange and darkish blue blend in the sky gives this landscape photo some character





Sunset in Hyde Park

Taken using my Nikon D60 with a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 lens

1/20 sec – ISO100 – F14 – 55mm focal length

I was really lucky to have made it on time getting to Hyde Park corner before the sun started to set. I manage to take this shot resting on a fence while the sun was still dipping. Has to be one of my favourite shot that day as it reminds me of a different place in the world.

Whenever you take picures of a model you need to aware of her dimensons and how they best suit the camera.

It also needs to be 45mins per shoot.
