One Final Moon

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

The clouds blew over so I decided to brave the cold and go back out for one last set of blue moon shots.

Blue Moon on New Years Eve


According to popular definition, a blue moon is the second full moon in a month.

Moon In The Clouds


A full moon occurs every 29.5 days, and most years have 12. On average, an extra full moon in a month — a blue moon — occurs every 2.5 years. The last time there was a lunar double take was in May 2007. New Year’s Eve blue moons are rarer, occurring every 19 years. The last time was in 1990; the next one won’t come again until 2028.

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.

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?

Unboxing The Backpack

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

I bought a new camera bag because my other one was just too small, PLUS I had to carry a separate bag with my laptop.  I decided on the Kata KT DR-467-BR Digital Rucksack and ordered it on sale from Amazon.  It showed up on Christmas eve.

They actually left it outside the gate, so I’m lucky it’s still there.
