Beach Of The Dead 2011 – Highlights

Yesterday, several zombies arose in Brighton and done a walk all the way from somewhere to somewhere else. According to an official count from the main organiser there were around 4,000 of the blighters! 3,500 started out, with around another 500 latecomers (well, they are zombies after all) joining in as they went, and I…

Q: When’s An f/1.8 Not An f/1.8?

A: When You Give A Shit About Sharpness I’d heard from people before that lenses were not always sharpest at their widest aperture settings, but never really sat down and checked it out. Reading an “e-book” about street photography just now and seeing the topic brought up again however, made me decide to check it…

When Does Boiling Water Freeze?

When you desaturate it a little bit in Lightroom. What? This: Amy Hughes from 365project posted up a new challenge earlier today, for a bunch of us to take a shot of a common object, and see how varied the results would be. I had a bit of a crazy idea and ended up with…

Finger Painting

Had an idea today – how about shining a torch onto the back of my finger, and actually painting with my finger? Light shining through, maybe I’d be able to paint with fingerprints being visible!? Well, my mini maglite torches weren’t bright enough to shine through my fingers strongly enough for that. So I just…

This Is How I “Bokeh”

Bokeh. Pronounced “bow-key” (ish) it’s a word I find enormously phonetically annoying which means “stuff in a photograph what ain’t in focus, like”; technically speaking, of course. Well, specifically, points of light/colour which aren’t in focus, oft-times looking similar to this: Well, that’s all well and good, but it’s rather boring. Luckily, due to some…

Going For A Wander

Went for a wander around, as I hadn’t been out the house in a wee while. There’s nothing particularly spectacular but still, the shots are located hither. This, in case your name’s Steve Love and you’re wondering where it is, is on the way up to Devil’s Dyke.

Brighton At 100mph

Fresh from my second failure at taking photos of liquids splashing, I decided to try my hand at something, while still experimental, definitely a little easier: strapping my camera to something in my car and doing long exposure night-driving shots! I figured the passenger seat headrest would be a good bet, and bolted the 10-20…

Bright-on Pier

So I went down to the pier and took some shots of it with a real long exposure, to see what’d happen. If you’d like to see what happened too, click the image.

365project.org Meet #1: Holland Park

So yesterday was the occasion of the first 365project.org meet up in sunny London, Holland Park to be precise. Organised by this guy Weng, I’d no idea who, or even how many people, would turn up, but went along anyway to see what’d happen. Blasted my way up there in pretty decent time, then got…

Another Daft Photo Rig

This time to photograph a splash formed from a water droplet dropping into a thing with water in it. Has some complications… Shutter speed fast enough to catch the water in motion and not leave a blur Aperture f-num high enough to get the whole depth of the splash in focus To satisfy these you…
