A New Photo-Challenge, Welding Light Oddities


I have been working with YESS Products on some custom frames that are being built for an upcoming project. Through this process I have been fortunate enough be observe the process of manufacturing the frame. The Welding aspect is one area that was a photo-challenge as the lighting is very unique.

Dealing with such a bright light made the contrast in photos like no other. Here are a few samples from the welding of these frames. These shots were not taken using any type of filters or special equipment.




Bad-Ass Blue Bull Bokeh


This was a Wednesday buffoonery project. Simply playing around with some light, lenses and a hand-made filter. This shot is actually taken through the hole in a Redbull can cap. BOKEH!

This shot was taken using the Canon 7D and Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro.

If you want to see just how ghetto the setup is for this, you can have a quick look at the making of twitpic.

more light experimentation


Today’s post is similar to yesterday’s in that it is using a flash in a way that I have not experimented with.

Lighting Somewhat Differently


This photo is totally different than ANYTHING I have posted on the blog before. This photo was taken in my basement with the lights out. I used a remote flash reflected off an umbrella for diffusion. My Camera Settings were ISO 100, F5.6, 1/250th, 154mm (small sensor).

Playing with my lenseses’


This was a bit of an experiment, Kinda weird but kinda cool at the same time. The fact that the secondary image is upside down helps to explain what is going in. Like I said, kinda weird but fun to play around with.

The correct exposure or the right exposure


I have always struggled with the artistic vs scientific approaches to photography. I typically expose things to a scientific level but miss out on the artistic deviations. This photo was purposely overexposed in an attempt to soften the image. I need to tell myself over and over again in situations like this that the correct exposure is not always the right exposure…

Seeing the trees and the forrest.
