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.

Scotty, Warp Speed Please!

- I wish I could jump to warp speed when traveling through the Midtown tunnel, the heaviest traveled two-lane road east of the Mississippi. This is the closest I'll get to that experience. Canon G11, 1/3 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 400.

301 - Departure

From 365 Project
This week's spooky theme continues. I saw this straggly tree with a little color in the old Elmwood Cemetery in Norfolk Virginia. I was playing around with motion zoom technique and captured this eerie looking image. Canon 7D, 1/3 sec @ f/13.0, ISO 200 with a variable neutral density dialed in to block about 5 stops of light. With the resulting relatively slow shutter speed, I was able to zoom out while the shutter was open creating the "jump to light speed" look.

283 - For a Buck

From 365 Project
We went to Target today and just inside the door where the bins of neat cheap stuff are I found these cool glow in the dark bracelets for $1.00. They are actually 12 thin plastic tube chemical light sticks in four colors with little connectors. This is a long exposure picture of the four loops I made set in motion. Canon Rebel XTi, 2 seconds @ f/5.6, ISO 200, 50mm lens.

282 - Night Drive

From 365 Project
Out for a night drive with the camera and fish eye lens. This shot was made possible by using a nasty clamp to mount the camera hanging upside down from the center of the sunroof opening. You never know what I'll try next to get a picture. Canon Rebel XTi, 1.6 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 200, 8mm fish eye, remote shutter release.
