flash

When I showed my wife my original picture for today she said, and I quote, “You’re not publishing that are you?” It wasn’t this photograph nor was it rude – just a bit weird. So anyway I made this instead… ‘cos this isn’t weird at all 😉

We’ve recently had a couple of demonstrations on the use of off camera flash at Bishop’s Stortford Camera Club over the last few weeks…something I am not very good at. So I spent an hour or so messing around with a flash and got some OK shots of a teddy bear and some selfies. Mix them together in photoshop and et voila…


A quick shot from this evening’s Bishop’s Stortford Camera Club meeting where we were mucking about with pumpkins and lighting set-ups – quite effective putting a flash light inside the pumpkin…


Faffing around with the flash again tonight, I got the lighting just right on the pouring tea…now to fix the rest of it 😉


I seem to spend a lot more time photographing my guitars than playing them. I also seem to spend a lot of time fighting with flashes to try and get the light I want. This is heading in the right direction…but still some way to go!
