Day #3333

Day #3333Title: Who Stole My Heart?
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2 / +4 Close Up Lens / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: I’ve spent another arduous day tidying again. This time it was the photographic studio (aka box room). It was in a terrible mess, but now it’s pristine again! So to celebrate I made a couple of Valentine’s Day themed images, this one and American Minion Beauty for my Toybox weekly project. Rather pleased with how they both came out. Now all I have to do is keep the studio tidy so it’s easy to make more pictures in future.

Day #3328Title: His Master’s Voice
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: This old 78rpm record has been kicking around at home for ages. It’s not playable – I think it came as part of a set of place mats and coasters. But I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #55 – Remember This? It won’t be long before the young ‘uns of today will have no idea what this is…

Day #3327Title: Beady Eye
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I’ve had this beaded bracelet for years, but came across it again a few weeks ago while tidying up. Getting up close with the macro lens, I thought this would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #15 – Beads. It looks like an alien eye which is watching me.

Day #3325Title: Obsolete Orange
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: It was the turn of my obsolete tech to be dealt with today. This is the motherboard of an ancient PC which has just been sitting under my desk for years, gathering dust! I removed a few bits which friends from Maker Space might be able to make use of, and took the carcass to the recycling centre.

Day #3315

Day #3315Title: Red Chaos
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM / 2x Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlites through textured film, from behind
Notes: I had another play with my Splash Art Kit this evening in my studio. I was trying to get much bigger splashes this time, using slightly thinned mixture, a magic ingredient and a higher dropping distance. With mixed success. The best shaped shot of the day wasn’t quite sharp enough in the important places, so this one turned out to be the one I chose for PoTD. The wibbly shapes on the background come from a textured piece of semi-transparent film.

Day #3312Title: Splash & Dash
Location: Colchester, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM / 2x Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlites gelled from behind
Notes: This evening I gave my High Speed Flash & Liquid Splashes talk at Colchester Photographic Society. Having got a few test shots earlier in the day, I was pleased with those I took during my demonstration. This was one, with a pleasing shapes and colours.

Day #3304Title: The Last Man On The Moon
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM / Yongnuo YN-14EX Macro Ring Flash
Notes: I had been wondering what to photograph for today’s shot as I’d been busy most of the day with jobs at home. Late on, I heard the news that Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon, died today. So I dug out my stamp collection (I especially liked Space and aviation themed stamps while I was growing up). I have photographed an example of this one before, on a First Day Cover from 1969 on the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing (it was my Day #567). But after a little tweaking in Photoshop, I thought this version better represented Gene’s achievement. Of the 12 men who have walked on the Moon, only six are now left.
