Daylight

Daylight

Missed last week’s Photojournalism class due to high spirits and good food at the wedding.
The assignment dealt with capturing differences in shooting daylight versus night-light.
Standing at the feet of Samuel Champlain at Nepean Point, looking across the mighty Ottawa, to the government buildings next to the Museum of Civilization (or whatever it is in its reincarnation).

Zoom flash

Zoom flash

Second class for Photojournalism.
The idea is to add dynamism to normal portraits.

Assignment: shoot one picture of subject using last week’s guidelines, reduce shutter speed and make necessary adjustments – then shoot again introducing motion. The subject must be in a dark spot. Set focus to manual. The flash will freeze the subject while ambient lighting illuminates the background.

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.
