Week 2, April 2009

Fondly nick named "Scooter" this is my toy, a 2004 Yamaha V-Star 650. Not a hot rod by any stretch, but fun to ride, and fun to shoot as well!!

This image was created as part of "painting with light" demonstration done for last night's photography class. Painting with light is a fun, almost magical technique using a not-so-typical light source (flashlight, sparkler, laser pointer etc) in a completely dark environment, to create images with VERY interesting lighting. Not something you can do with a typical camera/flash set-up.


The recipe: Canon 5D MkII, 24-105/4 L Series lens, ISO 200, F8, 30-45 second exposure
Light source: $10 Mag Light flashlight

New dates just added!!


"Shot of the Week" is brought to you by Christopher M. Johnson Photography as a way of sharing images that were a part of the workflow for that given week. In this weekly posting, I hope to share with you interesting images of all types, including Wedding, Portrait, Commercial and whatever else the lens might see.
Also in the posting will be announcements for promotions, events, classes and other points of interest.

Thanks, I hope you enjoyed the "Shot of the Week"
