Day #1286 Title: Crowning Glory

Notes: I’ve been trying to photograph some crowns with my water splashes but wasn’t getting any from the attempts I’ve had before. So I had another go this evening. Many shots later, I got a few satisfactory images. This was the best. How it was done.

Day #1259 Title: Smoke Signals
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 Speedlite on camera right through DIY snoot @ 1/8, bounced off white cardboard at camera left. Read more info on the setup.
Notes: I had great fun photographing tendrils of smoke from a joss stick this afternoon. Now my house smells! I’ve done some post production here to make the blacks really dark, and upped the contrast a bit. Compared to my first attempt back in 2008 on Day #230, I would say I’m very pleased with this one, my flash has worked extremely well and makes all the difference for clarity. I loved watching the patterns – you never know what you’re going to get from one shot to the next – it was quite relaxing in some ways. Certainly the finished image is a great one for Treasure Hunt Theme #34 – Zen.
