Meow.

These are the top 25 blogs. I’m not sure how they’re calculated but what I thought was interesting was that this one was included in this secondary list. I kinda always thought this image might work for that site. *Shrug.*

Bokeh.

One of the local camera stores is liquidating much of its inventory, getting rid of things they’ve had in stock for ages. They put ads on Craigslist to notify folks of what they have and there were a few manual focus Pentax K-mount lenses left so I picked one up for fun.

It turns out, the 28mm lens I scored is faster than any of my other Pentax lenses and is smart enough to allow the camera to control its aperture despite the manual focus.

The reason such things are interesting is called bokeh. It’s the blurring of the elements in a photograph due to the way the lens “sees” because of depth of field (roughly, the combination of focal length and maximum aperture).

Anyway, this image shows that, despite having been shot with a Hasselblad.

I Suppose I Should Post Something.

This is one of the first portraits I ever shot.

Imagine.

I have a lot of film to scan and not a lot of time.
I found this image while I was updating the family blog with pictures of my son. This kinda shows how unstoppable my daughter is. I hope she stays that way — at least until she brings home some doofy ruffian of whom I don’t approve (grin).

The Light, The Light.

I haven’t figured it out yet — why is the light so much… prettier on a Polaroid? There’s something ethereal about the way it bleeds around and almost falls.

At any rate, I have another surfer in the stable. Enjoy.

Again.

I’m actually gonna reshoot these with a little more care with regard to a lot of things, but I had a quiet moment this morning before class to look at the images again. While I think I can nail these, I kinda like this one, too. I should’ve posted it with yesterday’s image. Shrug.

Happy Friday, everyone.

Tacky.

Among the people I know is an accomplished rider. I wanted to try out the new light and she agreed to let me shoot a few frames of her. I wasn’t expecting much so I was relaxed. We had a good time catching up while I played around but the more I look at the set, the more I think I might actually re shoot it, without all of her stuff in the background. I was thinking, it’d look a little like Trevor Brady’s “At Home” series (which is NSFW, by the way), but in color (and with the model clothed) the feel changes and the “stuff” becomes noisy.

Anyway…
