Fenway Park

A dream since I was a kid. To see a game in Fenway Park in Boston. This was awesome. I lost all my images but one card in Boston and one card in Philly. Both were inside the ball parks. This was one of my favorites. Fisheye behind home plate.

Star Stax

I free software program that allows you to put star trails together into one image. Here is my take on the star trails tonight.

Due date Today

Just about one year later, Jay and Medina are expecting any day now. Today is the due date.

The last week Seattle has had their summer. I am sure they are more than ready for Kadie to be born.

Summer has arrived

Lit with 2 speed lights. One directly below the bottles. One directly behind the bottles. Bottom light set at 1/4 power and 3 feet from subject.
Back light set at 1/32 and is about 4 inches behind the bottles
Bottles were sitting on plexiglass. 3 reflectors were used. one on either side to rim the the bottles and one on top to give the caps a glow.

Strobist one light

How did I do this?

One speed light set at low power. 1/32 power.

I put light under the bottles, about 2 feet below. I placed the bottles on plexiglass which was held up by my daughters chairs. Her table was behind to steer the light upward. I had foam reflectors on either side again to point the light up and reflect back to the edge of the bottles and I held one across the top as well. I had a black cloth for the background.

ISO 800~~1/100~~f6.3

I will try this again tomorrow. I will also use a different setup. Stay tuned.

Comments welcome
