More incense smoke photography

Monday, September 12th, 2011

I decided to play with one of my favorite shooting subjects tonight:  incense smoke.  I tried some new techniques and I like what I am getting.  A bit more experimenting and I may put out a little tutorial if anyone is curious.  BTW, all these were shot with a Canon T2i with an 85mm f1.8 lens

The Ring In The Book – The Heart Of The Matter

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

Here’s an interesting experiment that I decided to try.

Ring In Book

Ring In Book - Blue Tint

I had seen this done before, but I discovered that with some adjusting of the position of the light, you could not only get the heart in the ring shadow but a heart in the larger light. This photo and the one that follows have almost no post processing done with the exception of a crop and some color tone, but the heart light is right out of the camera. I used a large hand held work light that you can get at any hardware store, like Home Depot. The light was shined almost directly behind the ring at a relatively high angle. The camera was stopped down 2 full stops to black out the areas outside the heart.

Ring In Book - Orange Tint

 


This one is the same photo as above, but I took it into photoshop and added the flare on the crown of the ring. Not sure if I like it better or not, but I decided to include it for reference. What do y’all think?

CHECK this out

I got this check in the mail. They spent 44 cents to send me 37. Not to mention the gas I would waste going to the bank to deal with it. I can’t decide if I should frame it or actually go into the bank with a smile and ask to cash it.

Warhol Bronc

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

I’ve been in kind of a tie dyed, hippie mood of late so here is another psychedelic creation.  The bronc is actually a photograph of a black, iron sculpture that hangs on my wall.  The rest is the magic of photoshop.

When The Moon Is In The 7th House

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

For Project 365:  This is a picture of the moon from tonight that I took and tweaked in Lightroom and Photoshop. I cloned it into several layers and then warped each layer individually.  In the background is a pattern on red that was subjected to a radial blur.
