Never strikes twice...

Three nights ago we had a great storm come in from the south, so up the valley we look down into. I set up the camera on a tripod and shot off a lot of pictures.
It should have been quite easy to get some lightning, just use a long exposure time, like 30 seconds or so, and sooner or later you'll get something, but with a 30 second shot, the camera takes the same time again to write the data to the memory card, I think I might be buying a faster one soon.
So I'd take the picture and nothing would happen, and then as the camera was saving I'd see 50 flashes light the evening sky.
In the end I got three with lightning in, this one is probably the best. I haven't made any corrections yet, just cropped it.

Check out the Spider Holster, looks like a neat enough idea. Lets see how much it goes for this autumn.

Edit... He does bear a passing resemblance to Trent Reznor huh?

Photoshop Trick to Reduce Filesize

"..If you want to save some space (my tests showed a loss of 20%, but I didn’t try it on bigger files, which could lead to an even better result), put a white filled layer on the top of your PSD file, save it, and see the slim-fast effect..."

New pics up on deviantart

Top is the gasmask, it turned up (an adventure in itself) and the second is the view I get when I take the dog for a long walk Wednesday mornings.

Click on the pictures to go over to see them on my Deviantart page, and, ahem, buy a print should you so wish.

HDR Self-Portrait

By admin (when...  12/07/2009 @ 17:30:22, Where Photography, linked 79057 times)

I've been wanting to use HDR / Tonemapping for a portrait for a while. The images that you get are gritty, and very detailed. Not flattering for sure, but definitely striking. I went for a real, just step outside and take a picture, no shaving, make up, cleaning, preening or waiting till the light is flattering. Oh, and no blurring, smoothing and hiding afterwards. I wanted a gritty black and white self portrait and that's what I got. Click on the image for a big version.

Oh, and whilst I'm at it, here's a new bit of music.


I'm a Photographer...

By admin (when...  13/08/2009 @ 20:35:06, Where Photography, linked 1095 times)

"Photography is under attack. Across the country it that seems anyone with a camera is being targeted as a potential terrorist, whether amateur or professional, whether landscape, architectural or street photographer.

Not only is it corrosive of press freedom but creation of the collective visual history of our country is extinguished by anti-terrorist legislation designed to protect the heritage it prevents us recording."


That font looks familiar...

Ah yes:

Simlar font.


Sergey Maximishin

By admin (when...  05/09/2009 @ 12:12:58, Where Photography, linked 829 times)

Great gallery by Russian photographer Sergey Maximishin. The style is photojournalism, and the images always have an underlying sadness in my eyes. Well worth a look at his extensive online gallery.


Airplane Graveyard

By admin (when...  13/09/2009 @ 17:16:42, Where Photography, linked 864 times)

Aircraft graveyards are always a great photo opportunity, and here's a nice selection of photographs of one in the Mojave dessert taken by Ransom Riggs who takes advantage of the HDR technique to bring some impacts full of impact. Sometimes the effect is a bit strong, but when they are done well they don't look alien, and that's what HDR should be about.

DIY Ringflash - 23 April 2010

By admin (when...  23/04/2010 @ 15:29:23, Where Photography, linked 728 times)

Spotted a nice article over at for a pretty cheap and cheerful DIY ringflash that involves two LED light rings meant for car headlights and a lens hood. Very easy and as I said, cheap...
