bulb through bulb
i took a picture of a light bulb on bulb
ironic? I thought so…
I set my camera on my tripod (sunpack 6600) I used my stock lens (18-35mm f/4) and i attached my wide angle adapter.
I then used my remote cord to reduce any chance of moving the camera.
I cranked my f-stop all the way up f/32.
I have always been a fan of how light can be manipulated on a camera, and I firmly believe that light plays an integral role on how a picture can turn out.
I saw my lamp and the light peeking through the blinds, and I wanted to capture that somehow.
so here it is, bulb through bulb
Taking (quality) pictures takes practice, and posting takes discipline…The bench was taken at UCR. I had, once again my nifty fifty on my trusty XSi. This time, I had my 580 EXII flash, with a small soft box on a remote cord. Can’t remember any of the camera settings, but I was just messing around and found it as I was going through my pictures.
The picture of the Kugel was taken at night. I had my 50mm on my Rebel XSi which was set on a tripod and I had my remote to reduce any vibration from clicking the shutter. I spun the Kugel around and made sure to get it wet so it can reflect the lights behind me. I found an angle where I wouldn’t be caught in the reflection and set my shutter on bulb and I think I was at f/4… cant remember exactly.. late night..
And lastly, this lovely woman is my girlfriend. We were at the beach a few weeks back, and I had my camera. She is usually camera shy, but I convinced her to smile for a picture and I had to make the most of it. I purposely overexposed to wash out the background. I had my kit lens with a wide angle attachment on it. Some salt from the ocean got on the lens, but it gave it a gritty/beachy environmental feel. I didn’t notice at first, but she has a tiny person jumping on her shoulder. Sometimes things show up on accident that give a new twist to a picture.
Enjoy, and please comment
