Monument (edited)

Nikon D5100, f/9, 1/320, Elements10

I've been playing with Photoshop Elements 10 to see what kinds of things I can do with my photos.  Sometimes just a little touch up is all it needs.  Well, I'm sure more could be done to make this a better photo..  I darkened the sky a bit and added some contrast to the face of the stone.  There it is...

Light Tornado

Nikon D5100, 20s, f8, ISO400

I decided to do a little more experimentation with light painting.  Apparently there are several varieties: one that I tried the other day and then the type you see above.  This was my attempt at a light tornado.  I tried a few other things too, but this one was fun.

Light-painted vase

This one photo took about 28 shots to get right, or at least close to how I wanted it to turn out. I saw an article about Lightpainting on the Nikon USA website and I decided to give it a try. You start with a dark room, a flashlight, some object you want to shoot, and a long shutter time. This one was about 15 seconds, f8, ISO400, and a 40mm Nikkor lens.

I started by setting everything up. I positioned everything where I wanted and then got the focus locked in and set to manual. Turned out the lights and clicked the shutter. While the shutter was open I used the flashlight to light up exactly where I wanted to. The first 27 shots were less than perfect. This one was right on. I cropped it just a bit and darkened the shadows although only slightly - nothing significant.

I'm going to have to play around with this technique a bit more and have some fun.
