Glow PEZ Skull

This is a glow in the dark PEZ Skull dispenser. It's a long exposure in a totally dark room. Michael saved the day with a last minute suggestion for this photo. Skull week continues. Canon 7D, 3.2 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 200, 100mm macro lens.

Light Painting

Normally light painting involves mounting the camera on a tripod, setting a long exposure and then moving a light in front of the camera to create shapes and patterns. For this picture I did just the opposite, the five green LED lights are stationary and I moved the camera during the exposure to create the looping effect. Canon G10, 2 seconds @ f/8.0, ISO 80.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

>Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is an international event created to promote and celebrate the art of pinhole photography. Photographers are encouraged to take some time off from the increasingly technological world we live in and to participate in the simple act of making a pinhole photograph. I hope you like the unusual beauty of this historical photographic process. Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is held each year on the last Sunday in April.

This is a picture of our house in the Carolanne Farms neighborhood in Virginia Beach, VA, USA. Exposure time 4 seconds, ISO 100, estimate pinhole at ~f/64. Canon 5D Mark II with homemade pinhole using a plastic camera body cap.

Starry Night

- Out in the country in Southwest Wisconsin the nights are dark and the sky is full of stars. This is a long exposure of 78 seconds so there's a little blur with each star caused by the earth's rotation. Canon 7D, 78 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 100, mounted on a tripod.

Long Creek

From 2010 Blog
Long Creek in Virginia Beach looking west towards the Lynnhaven River about 45 minutes past sunset and during a light shower of rain. I like the purple sky that occurs after sunset. This would have been a much better photo 15 minutes earlier. The evening light changes rapidly, so it's always worth hanging around after the sun sets. Canon G11, 1 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400, camera resting on a dock box.

Light Speed?

From 2010 Blog
This is a 4 second exposure of a tractor trailer riding in the lane next to me in the HRBT this afternoon. The blurry effect reminded me of a jump to lightspeed. You know us serious photographers, when we take a blurry picture it is always intentional. Canon 7D, 4 seconds @ f/8.0, ISO 200, 50 mm prime lens, camera on dash triggered with a wireless remote.

From 365 Project
This is a storm drain grate in a Salisbury Maryland parking lot. The parking lot lights cast nice hard shadows creating a scene that caught our eye as we walked by. Canon PowerShot SD870 IS, 1.0 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 200, handheld with a deep breath and good image stabilization.

160 - 73774

From 365 Project
No I didn't have too much caffeine and yes the blurred effect is intentional. You too can have fun with blurred action shots. If your "point and shoot" camera has the "fireworks" mode, use that in a dark room with an intense light source and some creative movement. Neon works really good. This is the front of a vending machine at work. Canon G10, 1/2 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 80, 30mm equivalent focal length.
