Day #1789 Title: The Ghost Of Bateman’s Tower
Location: Brightlingsea, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I spent a lovely couple of hours in Brightlingsea this evening, catching a gorgeous sunset and waving my light sabre around. It doesn’t get much better than this. Read more about my light painting adventures.

Day #1788

Day #1788 Title: Staccato Spin
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D /  10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: Another physiogram session this evening with better torches. Not only did I get one with a narrower beam, I also found one with a UV LED, so thought I’d have fun with that too. As these marvellous patterns are governed by the laws of Physics, I thought it would make a great practical illustration for Treasure Hunt Theme  #59 – Scientific.

Day #1777

Day #1777 Title: Purple & Pink Splash
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 @ 1/64 through purple gel, 1 x YN560 @ 1/64 through pink gel, both through milky perspex to rear
Notes:  A late night splash session produced some good results at last. When I tried collision shots before, I was using just water, from too small a drop height, and was having trouble with shutter lag. This time I used 20% corn syrup solution dropped from about 20cm into water, with a little Rinse Aid in the drop zone. And I found the mirror lock-up function on the 7D which meant the shutter lag was negligible. Soon I was getting lots of interesting shapes – then it was a case of playing around with lighting and drop size/timing to see what happened. Read my full review of the Splash Art Kit.

Day #1733

Day #1733 Title: Red, White & Purple
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: Another busy day, visiting Mum & Dad first thing to tell them all about my holiday. I got home this evening just as Alistair arrived from Newcastle. So by the time we’d eaten and sorted a few things out for our early start to Brighton tomorrow, it was getting late. This was a grab shot in the studio of my lovely Japanese paper parasol, as modelled on Day #1723!

Day #1723

Day #1723 Title: Face Down September (Tokyo Temple Edition)
Location: Sensō-ji, Tokyo, Japan
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Just because I’m in Japan for all of the Tuesdays in September, doesn’t mean I would forget to do a Face Down Tuesday shot! It was just a case of finding a suitable location. So here it is… outside one of the quieter temples at the Sensō-ji complex, I found a spot where nobody was paying me any attention, and with the addition of a suitable local prop, here is September’s Face Down image. Of course, it’s also for Treasure Hunt Theme #10 – Once A Month, SeptemberRead more about my stay.
