Week 2, September 2010


As part of my Night Photography class "Low Light or No Light" (Intermediate Photography) I created this image, literally in pitch black. Standing at the camera, only some 12 feet away from the tomb stone, I could not see it at all. With a looooooong exposure (opened up the sky a little) and my trusty little flashlight, I was able to "paint" some moody light into the dark areas.

The recipe: Canon 5D MKII, 17-40 f4 L Series lenses. ISO 500 f6.3 30 seconds

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.
