Some people think the act of “gloving”, and the concept of light shows promotes drug use. Those people just fail to use their imagination, can’t relax, and can’t see the art in the craft. Next time you see someone waving their fingers around in the corner of a club, ask them for a light show and try to relax.
Something interesting to try - put your finger in front of your face while getting a light-show and focus your eyes on your finger. The lights will then go out of focus and give you a neat effect similar to the one in this image.
I do not think anyone was expecting snow today, it seemed to come out of no where. I was trading photography editing techniques with a friend and fellow photographer, Elijah Vicente, when the snow hit. I have been wanting to try a shot like this for a while, once I saw how fast and hard the snow was falling, I just had to give it a shot. I had Elijah hold my flash behind his back while looking at the camera. At full power, the flash lit up the snow around him, leaving me with a snow silhouette.
Forced perspective bokeh.
My router decided to act up today. While resetting it, I noticed the blue lights could make for some awesome Bokeh. I haven’t used my 50mm 1.8 in a while, so I figured I would pull it out to get some nice big bokeh balls. Then I had to think about what to do in the foreground, considering I was trying to “fix the internet” I figured a wrench was in order.
I tried my best to capture some meteors from the Orionid meteor shower, but of course I did not get any meteors my images. I did get some awesome photos of the stars, and I did actually see some of the meteors with my own eyes, so over all it was not a failed mission. There is a second non-star trail photo I will be posting as well.
Technical info: This was done with my 8mm fisheye pointed directly at the sky in the middle of a parking area at the Acadia Management Area in Rhode Island. This is 48, 30 Second photos megerded with StarTrails.exe. ISO 320, f3.5, 30”.
