    I just took the dive into luminosity masks and manual exposure blending, here is my first attempt.
    It gave me a headache of note but I will persevere!

    Photo 50 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

    It has been a while since my last post, for various reasons I have not been posting as much as I would have liked.
    This is a bit outside my forte per say, last night I was on the 13th floor of a building in renovation in New Doornfontein with Joburg Photowalkers, it overlooked Johannesburg and I tried something for the sake of it.
    So Radiant Johannesburg was born.

    Photo 29 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

    My first photograph published and shot in 2015!

    It’s Sunday 5 a.m. I am on top of the Johannesburg double-decker bridge as it’s commonly known here, the sky threatens with all it’s might.
    What am I doing? Train spotting with Joburg Photowalker, I kid you not!
    In the center of the city lies a train yard, the Johannesburg main station in the horizon.

  • Roulette

    Roulette

    Click image to see larger/full version
    It’s not everyday you are invited, never mind authorized, to shoot things like a casino roulette in a casino, today I was lucky enough that I had one of these devices right under my hands.
    The first thing that I noticed about the roulette was the weight, as you spin it you feel it.
    The second is its momentum, it keeps spinning forever which is nice to shoot as it slows down so ever slowly and allowed me to fine tune my settings.
    Over all it was a pleasant experience with some great people (yeah, you know who you are) and unfortunately that’s all I can say.

  • Season's First storm

    Season’s First storm

    Click image to see larger/full version
    Last night saw our first storm of the rain season, summer if you like, it was not particularly impressive in my area but I heard that it was accompanied with hail in other parts of the city.
    Though I have successfully shot lightning in the past, I had never tried with a digital camera. This was on my to do list and will definitively do it again.
    One aspect I did not remember was the patience required for this type of photography, this was my 2nd 30 sec shot, though I caught it a couple of times again this was the “shot”, the others where in the corners or barely visible.
