Sorry guys, no daily updates for the next two days. While I’ll still be taking a picture a day, I won’t have access to the internet over the holiday break so that means no uploads. I’ll hopefully have some fun pictures when I return!
Today’s a boring day, I’m sorry. Had to drive home from South Carolina and it was a loooooong day. Today I did a slower exposure and caught the motion of the blades being turned by the heat from below. (yawn)
Today I took more pictures of my watch, but this time with a macro lens. The depth of field on this is about a millimeter or two. Look at how the facing is in focus but the flight computer on the outside edge isn’t. I’m amazed that such a shallow depth of field was even possible!
Just a little one today. My main photos will have to wait until tomorrow. The camera is outside right now doing some star trails. 45 minutes and counting on this exposure. 3 hours total on other photos. I’m very inexperienced with star trails so it takes a while to get the aperture and ISO figured out in order to expose for as long as I have it exposing for.
It was still too overcast to get any good shots of the night sky so I had Monica come outside and we did some light painting. I love this shot, she looks like she’s powering up in an episode of Dragonball Z.. 😉 The gallery has a few more light painting shots, please check them out! Also, I strongly suggest trying this out yourself. Just turn your ISO up, shutter speed down, and put the camera somewhere stationary. Then grab a flash light or some glow sticks and go nuts!
