February 2012: Favourite Shot:dltphoto

February is always a busy month for us. Many birthdays and events and the Lens and Shutter retail inventory and so on. This shot happens to be the one I enjoy the most. Its a natural shot of my pretty girls doing what they do best, not posing well for me!

A wintery winters day, the Digital Saga: dltphoto

So  in a previous post dubbed " the film chronicles", I went out and shot some goodies with the classic Nikon F5, but as to not make the Nikon D200 feel left out of course I dragged it along with me...really, what photographer only goes out with ONE camera? and maybe also a smart phone too!

Olympus XA2, gone but not forgotten: dltphoto

Heres a few "winners" from a roll of film I found from the Olympus XA2 which I acquired from somewhere!
The XA2 was an interesting little camera, super small but so simple. It was introduced in 1980 and was a more simplified version of the XA. The only "negative" (pun) of this little camera is the silly zone focusing system. Three little symbols, one that looks like two snowmen, the next is two people shapes like bells holding hands and the third is the classic symbol for a mountain.

A wintery winters day, the Film Chronicles: dltphoto

After our dump of snow a short while ago I broke out my amazing Nikon F5 for the harsh cold temperatures. Why the F5 I hear all of you asking... since its weather sealed to death and robust as heck and its my favourite film camera.

Anyways, the girls and I built "turner mountain" in the front garden and the girls revelled in sledding on their boogie sleds.

How the magic happened!:dltphoto

So in a previous post for the photoclub submission in February, I did a simple photo-shopping technique to help create an image. This isn't probably the best-est way to do this, its just the way I do it. I am sure some photo-shop nerd could come along and do it a different way in half the time, since there is multiple ways of doing the same thing, as long as its a way your comfortable with then go for it.

Here is the finished shot just so you know which image I am talking about....

APAC:Photoclub submissions, February 2012: dltphoto

February saw APAC going back to their normal Judging style. Not that I disapproved of the previous non-capa judging, I just didn't think his opinions were right. However, as I have said previously all of this judging is based on personal preference by the judge. So is anyone ever right? Only the photographer should know. It is our job to interpret what we see in a form that someone else can only try to understand.... ug, this is getting deep, lets get to the images.
Firstly the Assigned topic. This month was "Motion Blur". A relatively obvious title so no hidden surprises with this one. I chose an image I had worked on with the girls. I had purchased them some colourful dresses( yes I chose them) and I wanted to work with the colour of the dresses and in a relative grey scene to enhance the colours...after much running back and forth, by the girls. I ended up with the following.

"Pink Wheat"?:dltphoto

So a little while I go I found some "pink wheat", as called by Lucy. I used a combination of  my NikonF5, Nikon AF-S 60mm 2.8 and some sweet Kodak Ektar 100 film. It was all hand held and the breeze was blowing the "pink wheat" around. ( I am sorry I dont know its real Plant name, but if someone does they could let me know.)

January 2012, Favourite Shot: dltphoto

This months favourite shot was a fortunate snap from my little Fuji F200 EXR, one day whilst the girls were playing at Eagle Mountain Park. Its just "another" shot of Mount Baker, but the light was really nice despite being cold and windy.
This time I have attached two images, the original "out of the camera" version and a post edited version for your extra viewing pleasure... heheheh!
