I think Fuji just made the X-T1 auto focus better :)

Roger Federer at Wimbledon Centre Court, Tuesday 30th July.

It felt like I lost about 50 litres of water from sweat in 35c London, but it was an amazing experience :)

#PLUSpost  Week 7 Lighting with Intent with +Eric Raeber  #LightingWIT  

Light painting! What an excellent, fun, week on this mentorship, some great assignments and background info from Eric, as always.

We were going through how to use flashlights and speedlights to light a scene during a long exposure shot, and also how to do light painting, so we've had monsters, drummers, skipping kids and many more coming to life :)

This shot (a processed version of the SOOC submitted in my assignments) has lighting via my keyring LED and an old darkroom red flashlight, over a 30 second exposure (so the scene itself started out in almost total darkness). The background is our kitchen wall :) Amazing to see what you can do with this, and learned a lot this week.

Onwards, to week 8, the penultimate week! :)

Please do consider signing up to a mentorship, as and when they become available. So much generous time given, right here on G+, for zero cost.  

Part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers

Lol, yep :)  Glad you got that in the end, I think I told you before you'd do great, glad it is working out :)
All OK here, usual combination of good and shite, but generally AOK :) +Leonie H

#PLUSpost  Week 6 Lighting With Intent with +Eric Raeber   #LightWIT

So this week, Eric has been going through freezing motion via flash in a variety of exercises - splashes of milk, motion, zoom and panning blurs, and even an attempt to get us juggling (some people did some great efforts, mine was an abortive attempt lol).

A lot of technical points this week, like how you get contrast blurring behind an object when you freeze it with flash against a light background.  All very interesting, and technically challenging. I had a mixed bag of success this week, and I think for any future shots of mine that need this type of freezing, I'm going to spend much time planning and practising the effect desired :)

Onwards and upwards for Week 7 of 9 !

#PLUSpost Week5 Lighting With Intent with +Eric Raeber #LightWIT

So, week 5, Eric has been teaching us about colour, getting those gels out to change backgrounds or correct colour temperature of flashes in a mixed lighting environment, and a bit of winter creativity. All really interesting stuff still, and great learning material from Eric.  I dropped the ball a bit this week and a bit of laziness crept in so I was rushing to finish for the deadline, and some elements of my assignments were not quite what I intended.

This winter shot was one such case - and I could have done with hole punch cuttings for fake snow instead of trying - and failing - to throw packing chips ! ;)  We had fun anyway!

However, I learned some great stuff this week, and onwards and upwards to week 6 :)
