Photo365 – Day 90 – Good News?

A trip to the hospital today to have an EMG / Nerve Conduction test and I have to say it hurt! Quick fire electric shocks up the arm like putting your fingers in a plug socket over and over again. We’ll not quite as powerful, but I certainly felt it. Must have been 50 or […]

Photo365 – Day 89 – sploosh

I’m playing around with the portable studio flash we have in for test some more and have no started to try the fp mode which promises 7 frames per second. I wondered if it can do more and tried it with the new Sony Alpha A55 with its 10fps mode. It can’t keep up! But […]

I’m currently testing a new portable studio flash and before I go out I’m getting familiar at home…and that means good old me as the subject. This was taken a few minutes ago in my office. I underexposed to reduce the detail in the background and give the stark effect.

Photo365 – Day 84 – Stubborn Cat

My cat never likes having his photo taken. He always seems to turn away when the lens is pointed at him. There’s no way I could get him to sit and pose. Yesterday I’d planned to take a portrait. I followed him around the garden. He sat down I pointed the camera…he got up and […]

Photo365 – Day 83 – Through the door

was trying different lens combinations on a Nikon D700. I was using an unusual adaptor that used to be made by BPM that allows a male and female mount to be attached back to back. With the adaptor and suitable mounts you can attach any lens to any body. I tried enlarging lenses using a […]

Photo365 – Day 82 – Planets

Just a bit of fun today, a macro shot of the surface of a lemon taken with an old 75mm enlarging lens on a 200mm extension tube. I thought it looked like the surface of a planet so shot at the edge and then merged a shot of the moon I took recently (blurred to […]
