Park Portrait

I stitched together 30 pictures taken at 70mm f/2.8 and composted them to give an effective composure of 30mm f/1.3 with a very wide angle. This technique is commonly referred to as the Brenizer Method.

Day 13

Blue water

I spent an hour with a dropper in my light box, trying to capture blue drops. The only interesting picture I captured was when I bumped the camera and almost knocked over the tripod...


Day 12

A German pilot style watch. Practicing my macro photography and home-made light box.

Using two different light sources with different color temperatures was not such a good idea.
