Never strikes twice...By admin (when... 17/09/2008 @ 10:34:10, Where Photography, linked 700 times)
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.

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.
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.

"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."Read more at photographernotaterrorist.org
That font looks familiar...
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.
Aircraft graveyards are always a great photo opportunity, and here's a nice selection of photographs of one in the Mojave dessert taken by
I have two new galleries online.
The first is dedicated to all things Industrial

Spotted a nice article over at http://www.diyphotography.net 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...
