Another from the night of the beef stew, err, I mean, from the night we did some light painting. Although it was the night we had that amazing stew, drooling now, keyboard getting wet, sparks, smoke........................................sorry, the keyboards fine, I was just dreaming, I'll try not to think of that hot beef stew, mmmmm stew, no, stop it Andy.
Where was I, oh yes, this photo. We returned to the car and now it was completely dark this single light drew my attention like a moth to, well a light, ahem. I quickly unpacked my gear as it was now stowed away on my trolley, which is fantastic by the way. My mate was tired of carrying his heavy bag back to the car, I hadn't even noticed I was dragging my 2 st in weight bag, tripod and bag of painting with light goodies behind me. Oops! gone off track a little again here, erm, oh yes I got the gear I needed and headed for this light. After a few shots I got this one. Isn't it great when you are trying to capture something and it just doesn't feel right, then all of a sudden, click it's in the bag, perfection, well to me it is anyway. I captured this in the nick of time as shortly after my lens had warmed sufficiently enough to start fogging up.
I returned to the car where my mate was shooting the stars, he found the same problem, misted up lens. I have heard of people wrapping their lenses with scarves or even socks to prevent this. I will have to research it and maybe try it next time, I may even get Gill to knit my lenses their own wooly jumpers. Hey, they could have seasonal ones depending on what time of year I'm out shooting, a nice snowman for winter, leaves for autumn, the designs are never ending. What a fantastic concept, did I hear someone say rubbish, yes you could have one with rubbish on it, although I'm not sure which season that could be.
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking and for any comments.
