In the works, Still life/Night Life
This is where I work. I decided to try a pretty cool thing that comes with the Olympus OMD E M5 camera. Live Time. So I used a little tripod and pushed the button and...watched the photo appear on the screen.
I added some star specks and the little moon. Original is below.
Meanwhile I thought I needed a do over of some rose petals and rings. That didn't turn out so well so I went to plan B.
I did another ring instead and it looks like I'll have to redo this one also.
I blew the whites but I'm getting closer to what I want. I'll have to get another batch of flowers with roses in them. But, not until after Valentine's Day. They will be too expensive right now.
Well I decided to move on and try some other things.
Here I am doing the thinking pose while I toss around some ideas in my head.
I grab some items together. A vintage ruler, an old pitcher that I picked up from a flea market, a white rug, a ruler with advertising on it from the 1930's, and some flowers that were past their due date.
Fred would be very happy I think. Fred Flatow that is. I think that was his calling card in the 30's. On the flip side is a handy little ruler. Pretty neat right?
Finally I get something I am happy with. For fun I tossed the Lego Man into the coffee in the cup, along with a flower.
And I liked it better than any other shot I'd taken today.
And thus was born the Lego Man in the coffee.
I finished off the photo 'shoot' with two last items.
I wanted to go out and shoot the cropland and the icy sculptures in the moon light but alas.
The clouds have moved in.
Tomorrow is another day and hopefully I get out to do some more night photography soon.
