Disaster

Update

Thought it was about time for blog entry after having a break from the site for a couple of months. Spent a lot more time with the camera instead of on here. The splash art machine has worked overtime together with the new flash units I recently bought. Still a way to go with the lighting.... nearl...

Disaster...... Nearly. It was early Monday morning when things went dead with my internet connection. My patience ran out at eleven the decided to ring my ISP to find out what the problem was, after listening to a load of customer relations bullshit, I was still none the wiser. Asked the assis...

Looking back. Spent a while going through my drop images from start to finish, comparing how I began up till the present. My mind is drawn to the first lot I produced when getting the mix of water/gum to my liking..... I think I'll stick with this method for now ......... I have two...

An early start. had a bit of a lie in this morning, up at 0545. After a couple of cups of coffee I decided to brush off the cobwebs and have a cycle to the lake. Had the SX50 in the panniers just in case. After a slow pedal along the footpath then coming to the car park I noticed a lass feeding ...

Getting wet. Back to the splash art again today........ ...... things are coming along nicely. Shot once again with the Canon SX50, its a bit of a faff but the results are acceptable. Out of interest, I did upload a pic of a drop taken with the SX50 to be printed to A3 and when it arriv...

Balls Put a couple of sandwiches up along with a flask full of iced orange and the SX50 then headed for the park. Was pleased when I got there to see a bowls tournament in progress .... which was all but over. Parked myself on a bench and quickly pulled out the camera. Managed a couple of shots ...

Getting there. At long last after three months of trial and error I'm finally beginning to get somewhere with the splashart kit. Better results have been obtained using the little SX50. Here's a large version ........ ......... One or two blemishes remain but these can be easily rem...

A return to the damp stuff. After a rest from splashing about for a couple of days I decided to break out the splash art kit yesterday. The images I took were spot on splash wise but oh dear me the quality was in some doubt. I found out that the polariser I was using was absolutely filthy ........

Round and Round. I was awake at the crack of dawn again. A cloudy sky this morning which put the mockers on things but at around six o clock I thought sod it, and got the 40D and tripod stowed in the panniers together with a small flask of coffee then made my way to the lake. Got the gear set...

Plan B Well, another let down with the weather again tonight. It's been clear all day up until around five when the cloud started to appear and slowly thicken to a nice shade of grey at present. Was going to the lake to carry on with the time lapse........ it wasn't to be. Decided to upload a...
