I thought I’d share a photo and give my self a pat on the back (or two). First, the photo:
Fielding and I have been trying to shoot trains for the last few nights. Last night we waited and waited with the disappointment of no train. We occupied our time with this photo. That’s Fielding on the left and me on the right.
The photo made Explore #1 spot on flickr and was featured on the front page. I’m pretty stoked considering the photo was rated #1 (at least for a day) out of the more than TWO BILLION photos on flickr. Here’s the evidence 🙂
Photo Specs: Nikon D300, stacking method used with 35 exposure, 30 seconds @ ISO 1000 for fielding and I and 2 mins @ ISO 800 for the rest. Tokina 11-16mm 2.8, f/2.8 and f/4.
In other news…
Recently, one my audio trigger photos won 3rd place in the diyphotography.net D3A contest. The contest had close to ten thousand submissions during 10 month entry period. Thanks to Fielding, Nick and Jon for all the help and I have to admit that any of their photos could have easily won (if they had submitted them). BTW, the prize was a fancy programmable audio/visual timer (similar, but much more sophisticated than the one I used for the glass breaking shots). My next goal is to capture a bullet.
Finally, the scanner camera project has been featured on various tech and photography sites, the largest being CrunchGear.com and CNET Asia:
- CruchGear.com does an article on my scanner camera
- Crave on CNET Asia has a short write up on the project
- Tightwad Technica summarizes the project
- Focusoft Tech Blog’s post on the camera
I have been shooting nonstop for the last few days and I plan on posting more photography soon. Keep checking back.
