Out in the garden at the weekend I ended up leaving my sandals laying about while I soaked up a few rays. Bit of a daft idea really as when I went to put them on again they were rather warm and scalded the soles of my feet.
First time the 70-200 has been attached to the camera for ages – forgot what a narrow DOF you get with it.
Further testing of the Mobile App, TriggerTrap. After a few false starts managed to keep it running till the battery ran out on a 63 mile journey home from work. Distance lapse trigger was used in preference of time-lapse. quality is plainly an issue on the iphone once rendering etc have taken their toll, but will certainly be interesting testing some of the other triggers with the SLR when the cables arrive.
Fairly sure you shouldn’t play with fireworks indoors but it was raining. Only had two that I found in a cupboard earlier, and they must have been really old as they fizzed rather than sparkled.
Net result was that I managed to balls up the exposure (they were seriously underexposed) so any editing has seriously degraded the IQ. Tried something different on this one – Created loads of layers and rotated each one a bit…… Might work for star trails but not so good with sparklers indoors…….
Had literally 5 minutes where I didn’t want to think about work so decided to have a play. No doubt this has been done a million times by a million photographers and has a million slightly different takes. No original though went into this whatsoever.
Technically far from perfect, and could do with more PP but hey – five minutes is five minutes.
At some point I’ll detail what I did but haven’t got time now…….
