Smoke

Smoke

No self respecting set of images is complete without a puff of smoke.
Snooted flash, high beam flashlight, silver reflector, ISO 6400, f8, 1/250.
4 incense sticks stuck in a potato for stability, shoot until the rain forced me inside.
Add a bit of luck & the stew is done.

Stone Sculptures

Stone Sculptures

Stopped at Remic Rapids in the Ottawa river on the way to the season opener for the camera club. These stone sculptures, originally done every year by John FĂ©lice Ceprano (since deceased), are replaced every year by local folks looking to replicate (& honor) his work. Light painting on the front rocks. The foggy night adds to the ambiance.

Denis Rule

An enjoyable shoot with Denis Rule – The Lighting Guy.
This 500mm f4 lens from Nikon is quite the beast.
This shoot used 3 speed lights and light modifiers from Aurora – including a collapsible beauty dish.

More about light modifiers at thelightingguy.ca

And, of course, the model – Cherry, was cheery and fun to work with.

R.I.P. Kazi the cat.
After 8 years of chasing anything that moved and squeezing into any box that was left unguarded, Kazi, the quiet leader, is gone.
