GOOGLE HANGOUT TOMORROW

JOIN THE HANGOUT WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 22nd

Tomorrow night please join the hang studio hang out where we go over last weeks assignment to shoot a red wine bottle. Alex Koloskov & Dave Nitsche have been hosting a weekly google hangout. This will be the 6th one. It starts at 10pm EST.

LIGHT PAINT RED WINE

Here is my take on the assignment from last weeks hangout. After 2.5 hours I finally got the shot I was hoping for. I thought I’d give light painting a try as I hadn’t tried this type of photography before. This shot was done in complete darkness and lit only with a maglite and I used my iphone LED to light the background. Each shot was a 30 second exposure. I also had my long exposure noise reduction turned on in my camera which meant for each 30 second exposure I had another 30 seconds of processing in the camera before it transferred to my computer. I took about 20 shots before I got one that I was happy enough with. With an additional 20 minutes in Photoshop to clean it up I think I finally was happy.

THINKING OF OUR CRUISE

Last summer we had taken a cruise to Alaska. We started our journey in Seattle on a really beautiful day. Was not what I had thought being my first time to Seattle. I expected rainy and grey and there wan’t one cloud in the sky.

TODAY’S PHOTO – THE DEDICATED MARTINI BAR

This shot was taken just shortly after boarding the Rotterdam cruise ship in August of 2010. We boarded in Seattle and headed up to Alaska for 7 days. It was a great trip with unbelievable views that you can only get from the water.

I’m not too sure what to say about this shot other than I was eager to cruise, no pun intended, around the ship before the masses engulfed the ship and cluttered every shot taken. This was a martini bar that was all set up and not a soul had touched it just yet. I was able to take my time and compose the shot without feeling rushed.

I sure hope you all are enjoying the photos I’ve posted so far.

Well, if you like what you see please comment and share with everyone. I’d love for my photos to be enjoyed by everyone.

Enjoy!
