Sunflower

Sunflower

Taken with a handmade pinhole lens mounted on a digital slr. ISO was set as high as it will go which allowed for a reasonably fast shutter speed and a hand held shot. It was an interesting experience shooting with a pinhole since there is no focusing and the aperture is obviously fixed at the size of the hole itself. I shot in manual mode adjusting shutter speed to get the correct exposure with help from the histogram. I also made some close up shots in the garden at home with the same set up and was quite impressed with the results. The images have a certain quality that i've not experienced before. This technique opens up a whole new dimension in the art of photography that I'm excited to explore some more.

June Sunset

June Sunset

Barley field sunset taken with an ultra wide angle.
I made the effort to go out in the evening for a sunset shot but I realized that it's impossible to predict a sunset and what will happen with the clouds. I had already found the location not too far from home and each visit was a last minute decision with a quick look out the window at home beforehand to check the cloud cover. I timed it to arrive at the location around half an hour before sunset and it took two or three visits before I got the shots I wanted.

Whitwell Poppies

June 24th. Whitwell, Hertfordshire, UK.

The walker on the track had two young looking German short haired pointers. The first didn't like the look of me (and the tripod maybe) and hurried past with a worried look but the second stopped for a pat on the head and a stroke..... nice looking dogs.
