My Photos Have Interestingness

Published by under Photography,Photos

The other night I was on a bit of a downer and so decided that I’d indulge myself in one of my favourite pastimes. No, not bell-ringing or sailing…. photography! It was evening, almost clear skys and a breeze coming in from the south-west, so where better to start than Vazon to see if I could capture some surfers in action.

Although there were a fair few surfers in the water, there wasn’t much in the way of waves. Instead of giving up I decided to have a go at some more “arty” shots. With the water just coming up to the bottom of the wall I decided to have a go at taking pictures of the groynes at the base of the wall. My fist 20 shots were ok but nothing special. What I really wanted to a long exposure to blur the water, so I tried shutting down the aperture and added a neutral density filter… and then another neutral density filter… and the a graduated sunset filter… and finally a polarising filter. Finally I managed to get a six second exposure which was just enough to blur the water.

As well as uploading the final photos to Encaptured.com, a stock photo site that I run with Shane Marriott, I also uploaded low res copies to Flickr. Quite amazingly I my photo managed to make it onto Flickrs “interestingness” list for the day. Whether it is there forever I don’t know but I hope it is.

Holiday Snaps

Published by under Export,GSX-R750,Holiday,Photos

When I went on holiday last weekend I took my camera with my, fully intending to stop as often as possible to take pictures of the scenery from the seat of my bike. These are the results:

Waiting for the boat in Guernsey

My route guide

Locked up in Poole

As you can probably tell, the joy of riding got the better of me. The result being that I was so in awe of my bike I only took pictures of that when I could finally drag myself off the seat.
