New light, New set up

February 21, 2009

chie-close

Today I caved and got the light from Argos, £9.97, max height 52cm, an angle poisey affair. I went and got some bulbs from the pound shop near the market, no daylight bulbs sadly, I’ll need to find one/some from somewhere… I don’t think ordering light bulbs online would be the best idea though, ne?

I got some pretty papers for backgrounds too. And a plain yellow bit, since it would look great with Chie. And it does. Right??

SLR Figure Photography

January 26, 2009

I got my photos back from the shop! The actual prints look awesome, but the high res look a bit grainy…. definately using 100 ISO film next time…. which might be later this week. On some of them I did a bit of photoshopping, just adjusting the colour, I don’t know how to get rid of grainyness lol. And it seems like the lower aperture(ones with out of focus background)have less grain than those with a higher aperture.

I again, had to take pics of Fumie, because I love her.

This was taken using low aperture, soft focus background.

SLR Practice

January 25, 2009

(Please note, this is not a digital camera I’m using. I’m using a plain old fashioned Nikon AF NIKKOR 28-100mm.(I think thats its name, if not, its Nikon F65 lol) No screen, no iso controll I know of…. that I’ve been taught of… if there is, someone tell me lol.)

Yesterday I’d got round to scanning my best SLR pics from the first shoot, from Castle Gardens. And the next set I did over yesterday and today I got on CD aswell as 6×4″ photos, so no scanning needed lol.

The first pics I’m gonna post are the scanned photos, my favourites at any rate. And this was my first time fiddling with an SLR camera. So I’m suprised more of them weren’t blurry or complete rubbish lol, only a few of the 72(2×36 exp) came out bad lol.

One of my favourites I think.

Probably one of my favourite pics. Because I got the flower in the center in focus but not all the rest, which was my aim lol. I think...

Well do they? These squirrels were insanely tame lol.

Today I went round with a friend who was doing the photo work I did on friday, using the big ol’ SLR camera’s. (My grandad on my fathers side loved camera’s, according to my father, there are some in the barn, with lots of lens and stuff. My dad is gonna have a look for me, will be cool, even if it is older, still an SLR!!) So, after the park… we went to the castle gardens, and got ambused by squirrels… really tame ones… I wish I hadn’t eaten all my Curly Whirlie…. but Katie had one left!! So we started experimenting…
