Week Sixteen 2017 – On the Road

Kenya has very many beautiful sites and as we travel we also carry our equipments to capture some of these sites.

In this scenario we were on a moving vehicle and for clear images we had to use very high shutter speed to negate motion blur.

See how we did enjoy:

Looking far into the abyss.

Curved and hilly road.

Going wide.

A day of travel is never finished without a sunset.

Week Thirteen 2017 – Light Painting

We have done light painting twice in 2015 here and here and also second week of 2016 here

Basically this is a technique that involves lowering the shutter speed of your camera to a point it can record light. In our setup the light we want to record is a small LED light that we move around.

shutter speed 30 sec Aperture 5.6 ISO 100

We started by trying to create patterns.

Then we started having some fun.

A few test first.

different strength LED torch.

Happy with the results.

Requirements:

  • DSLR camera with long exposure capability
  • Tripod
  • Trigger
  • LED light or very small torch

Place camera on tripod, set up area of focus and lock focus by disabling auto focus on lens.

Set trigger mechanism and in front of the camera use LED light to draw while shutter is open.

We advocate a lot of trial and error in this experiment.

Week Seven 2017 – Long Exposure

“If learning is an act of exploration, then technology equips the explorer for the journey of a lifetime.” ~ Anonymous

Long exposure is a camera technique where you leave the shutter open for longer than a normal photograph making the camera record more light and below are some of the results.

Please note for good long exposure shots a tripod is mandatory.

Enjoy.

Some cars dropping down hill, the red streaks are brake lights.

Head lights.

Here we slowed down the shutter speed to record more vehicle light activity.

A change in location and timing gave us different results.

Street light showing off there lighting skills.

Editors favourite:

Monochrome.

Location: Mugoiri road | Muranga

Time: 21:00hrs

Whatever you do don’t stop learning.

Week Four 2017 – Shadows

A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. It occupies all of the three-dimensional volume behind an object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or a reverse projection of the object blocking the light.

We have been working on a few learning techniques in learning photography.

This week our focus was on shadows.

Some shadow-less images to test the light before the experiments.

We have 5 and/or more uses of shadows in photography below:

  • Focus
  • Revealing Form
  • Directing the Attention
  • Contrast and Drama
  • Revealing Texture

Week Three 2017 – Double Exposure

In photography and cinematography, a multiple exposure is the superimposition of two or more exposures to create a single image, and double exposure has a corresponding meaning in respect of two images. The exposure values may or may not be identical to each other.

This is mostly done via software.We used our own sunset pictures and previous jobs to create the below.

We worked on all types of images.

Week Two 2017 – Black and White

This week we are doing an experiment.

Most of the time we go shooting nature we know nothing of the place just an idea of what we would like our images to look like therefore not following any rule or breaking them all.

So we decide to go by the books.

First this is hitting google and you get tips like;

  1. shoot in raw (we do this always)
  2. look for contrast, pattens…
  3. pay attention to shadows lines shapes…

We took on the challenge with only one lens in hand, this is what we made…enjoy
