Hi Dave, Thank you. Timing was just down to luck truth be told, my other half got soaked as it took us several attempts.
I suspended it with garden twine from the guttering on our summerhouse. I attached a sewing needle to a cane and then we counted 1,2,3 prick :-)
I used natural light 50mm...
I bought ordinary balloons form the supermarket and held them on my outside tap until like you say they wont hold their own weight, tied a knot in the top and suspended mine on garden twine hanging from the guttering on my summerhouse. I found through trial and error that it does depend on...
Week 21 Liquid
Well once again I was spoilt for choice, I have had a few days off so headed out for some fun in the garden as the weather has been so hot. So with a pack of balloons and a bubble gun here is the choices.
Week 20 - Something Old With B&W Technique
We found this beautiful set of scales when clearing out my late father in laws house, we sadly never got the chance to ask him where he got them from..... I felt they were suitable to be edited in the B&W technique.
Once Again Find Myself Catching Up.
Week 19 - Colour (ful)
I took an early walk on the beach at low tide with my trusty 4 legged friend and these buoys were catching the morning light and caught my eye.
The next day I wanted to use some softboxes I have been lent to do some creative...
I took this one and used a needle tied onto a stick and got my other half to pierce the balloon directly from below. Timing is key, and someone who is prepared to get wet.
I used natural light 50mm 1:4 @f1:4, ISO 100, 1/6400 in manual mode.
Beautifully captured shot, I would love to know where he thoughts are.... and her beautiful companion is patiently sat beside her.
B&W suits this composition, colour would not have given it the same feeling.
Thanks for the advice, I am only just starting to dip my toe in the water with Lightroom and Photoshop and am having to google and you tube to find answers to my question. I never thought about saving sizes as an export preset. I have so much to learn.
Thank you again for your...
Thank you Shugpug, yep I had my work cut out... luckily I had taken some photos around the time they were posted for that week. I must admit having been lent some lights and soft boxes it allowed me to be at peace and I had a good couple of hours pleasure.
This is a very challenging and...
Thank you for taking the time to write the above, I really appreciate the feeedback, I have literally been up since 04:30 today trying to A) get the photos off my camera. B) work out how to do things in Lightroom and then some in Photoshop. C) then export them so I could upload them on...
Cheers Cobra, I have tried to grab images but haven't had laptop time or headspace to sit and edit.. I was pleased with most of them and am now pleased that I am back on course and will be getting more days off now. Thank you for your choices, I have been taken out of my comfort zone and have...
Week 16 Music
Deep in the bosom of the gentle night
Is when I search for the light
Pick up my pen and start to write
I struggle, I fight dark forces in the clear moonlight
I can't get no sleep
I used to worry
Thought I was going mad in a hurry
Getting stressed, making...
Week 17 More Than One
So I got up of nights and decided to have a bash at some indoor photography, a friend had lent me some soft boxes and lights. I had no idea what I was doing but I enjoyed it and found it very relaxing.
I took plenty of shots but I think my own mood dictated the one I...
