A photo from right now, this booth is across the road from my front door. I was out taking photos of the full moon rising (great moon, mediocre photos) and this was the last photo of the night.
I bought a flash about a year ago and have unfortunately only got around to experimenting with it on the odd occasion. Sitting it on top of the camera is easy enough (and can get complicated when you start looking into bouncing, diffusing, gels, etc…), but what really interests me is off-camera flash!
So, there was an open invitation on g+ this morning for submissions of black & white photos. I got an idea into my head of making a minimalist image of my bicycle, using the flash to overpower the midday light in my the apartment. After a little post processing and converting to black & white I arrived at the image below. Am I happy with the result? Yes I am. Can I do even better? Absolutely, and looking forward to it!
A deli, at night in Dublin: Hey, look at that – the first post with the D7000! I have had it a good while already, but have not got around to posting any here yet. Still have loads of photos from the D60 to sort through…
St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin:The lunch time crowds taking in a little sunshine in the park.
The B+W conversion only just beat out the colour version for today’s choice. This version shows more drama in the trees, where the colour version was overwhelmed with shades of green.
