Day 341 – not now…!

Project 365, 341/365, Day 341, Strobist, bokeh, rain, not now, raining, wet,

We wanted to go out and do a guitar action shot, but with it starting to rain really hard we just got out on the balcony.

Strobist Info:
SB-80dx (24mm – 1/2) into 43″ Westcott Reflective Umbrella from the right, SB-80dx (50mm – 1/1) bare from the back, flashes tiggered via PocketWizard Plus II and optical trigger.

Day 340 – Bad Moon

Project 365, 340/365, Day 340, moon, bad moon, clouds,

I got home late from university and the moon was smiling at me the whole way back so I thought I got to capture it.

195mm – f5.6 – 1/25 – ISO 200

Day 339 – Distinction

Project 365, 339/365, Day 339, bokeh,

Writing letters the whole evening. Lets see what comes out of it.

Strobist Info:
3x SB-80dx (24mm – 1/1) into 43″ Westcott Reflective Umbrella from the left, camera and flashes tiggered via PocketWizard Plus II and optical trigger.

Day 338 – monkey’s job

Project 365, Day 338, 338/365, Self Portrait, bokeh, monkey, monkeys job, stolen camera, canon ef-s 10-22 f3.5-4.5,

I had to laugh so hard when I read this story of a monkey stealing a photographers camera and shooting some pictures of himself. It kind of reminded me a lot of myself and this project…

…my second thought right after that: Damn monkey is taking better self portraits then I ever have!

13mm – f4 – 1/20 – ISO 400

Day 337 – chasing clouds

Project 365, 337/365, Day 337, Strobist, Self Portrait, field, warm, dusk, sunset, clouds, golden, Canon EF 24-70 f2.8, onelight, one light,

The whole day there were all those big fluffy couds in the sky, so I basicly considered my picture for the day pretty much done. By the time I got home though, almost all of them were gone and I could only see one or two left in the distance. So I got into my car and drove out to the nearest empty space, but as I arrived nothing really lined up the way I wanted it to any more. So consider this one more of a second choice image… but I think all the bugbites I got this evening were worth it.

46mm – f10 – 1/250 – ISO 100

Strobist Info:
3x SB-80dx (24mm – 1/1) into 43″ Westcott Reflective Umbrella from the left, camera and flashes tiggered via PocketWizard Plus II and optical trigger.

Project 365, 336/365, Day 336, Strobist, Self Portrait, bokeh, perfume, perfumebottle, bokeh bubbles, bokeh balls, Canon EF 24-70 f2.8,

Home after a long day, but for some reason this idea got stuck in my head on the way home. At first I wanted to go for a single flash look, but when I started to set up, two others found their way into the picture.

35mm – f2.8 – 1/250 – ISO 100

Strobist Info:
SB-80dx (diffusor – 1/16) into 43″ Westcott Reflective Umbrella from the left, SB-80dx (24mm – 1/32) snooted into a really small hole unter the bottle, SB-80dx (diffusor – 1/32) into half closed 43″ Westcott Reflective Umbrella from the right as fill, camera and flashes tiggered via PocketWizard Plus II and optical trigger.

Project 365, Day 335, 335/365, bokeh, strobist, books, laptop, netbook, library, against white, white background, Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM, 50 mm,

After spending my day at the library on my way home I found out that there was a free concert happening at the university. I would have loved to bring you a shot of that, but unfortunately I didn’t bring my camera (for once) because my bag was filled with books. Well, so that is what you are getting today.

50mm – f2 – 1/250 – ISO 100

Strobist Info:
SB-80dx (diffusor – 1/32) into small silver umbrella from the top left, flashes tiggered via PocketWizard Plus II and optical trigger.

Day 334 – off the branch

Project 365, Day 332, 332/365, Strobist, Self Portrait, cto, warm, colour, gel, summer, pale, bokeh

I really love the colours in this one looking at it on the computer straight out of cam. For some reason, the really late daylight, combined with the used whitebalance gave this one those nice creamy tones, even thought there is a bit of motion blur do to the 2sec shutter speed.

200mm – f2.8 – 2sec – ISO 100

Day 333 – Hard Drive Failure

Project 365, bokeh, railing, fende, bokeh bubbles, bokeh balls, colours, nightshot, rust, old, metal, street, chain, bokeh chain, Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM, 50 mm,

I don’t know what happened today, but all of my programms on one of my harddrives got deleted. Which left me with another eve sitting in front of my computer and trying to fix it. I was close to doing a complete system sweap, but luckily I got it to work again without resorting to that. For some strange reason I had a strange hunch in the morning which made me back up all important files, so nothing important was lost.

50mm – f1.4 – 1/30 – ISO 800

Day 332 – warm day

Project 365, Day 332, 332/365, Strobist, Self Portrait, cto, warm, colour, gel, summer, pale, bokeh

… not really, but I felt like flair and strong rim today. Also I need to get in the sun. My skin is so white, that its getting hard to edit daylight pictures lately.

“I’m scared! I’m staying in here with you belly!”

Daniel was over this evening for some guitar action, but with it being that warm it is more like a work out, so I wasn’t really into doing something big tonight. So here is a shot of his black beauty… to be continued.
