Finally got around to purchasing my own domain, all the latest updates concerning the photoblog can be found at http://luckoftheiris.com
As part of my routine of self punishment, I stood approximately 2 hours on wet grass trying to take advantage of the full moon and a blanket of fog that was sweeping over Lee Fields. Ideally I would be taking a photo of the fog on Lee Fields in the morning but since I can only do so on the weekend, it’s not going to happen any time soon. But it will happen.
Anyway, the majority of the photos I took that night I wasn’t particularly happy with, either the composition wasn’t quite right or the shots were out of focus. At least I managed to get one right …
There are part of the Photography Course I’m currently attending in Saint John’s to demonstrate two methods for controlling exposure, Shutter and Aperture.
For half an hour I had my friend James stand still for several minutes at a time in Opera Lane. Exposure time was about two and a half seconds.
On the same day that I took the slow shutter shot above, I walked out to the Mardyke and got my timing right to spectate at a rugby match. Exposure time was 1/320 seconds.
Low Aperture ( High f-stop )
This was taken out at Lee Fields at 22 f-stops. Low Aperture is generally used for landscape photography but here I chose this particular subject because the differences between Low and High aperture were far more pronounced.
High Aperture ( Low f-stop )
…. continuing from the previous description. Exposed at 2.8 f-stops.
This is part of my photography assignment to display the Shallow Depth of Field when setting the camera aperture to 2.8 F-Stops and what better way to practice this than on a house cat?
25 to 30 second exposure in the freezing cold, the moon rise was particularly spectacular but the initial didn’t turn out so well. If anyone finds a pair of gloves before the ferry crossing in Glenbrook, please let me know 🙂
