Winter Morning

Winter is certainly with us and even though the sun is shining brightly it is more for light than heat.

Macro studio - Mark II

The $10 Strobist macro studio is up and running and this morning the different backgrounds were tested.

I think they look quite good. Certain colours especially light ones, as I found out, do not work very well on a white backgroud as there is not enough contrast so having the ability to mix and match the background colour is a good thing. It allows for a bit of creativity too.

Anyway here are the results, I think they speak for themselves.

Macro studio - Mark II

Here is the second attempt at making the $10 Strobist macro studio. This time around I took the time to make more accurate cuts in the cardboard and as suggested I used tracing paper for the diffuser sides rather than grease proof paper as I did the first time around. I also made it possible to change the background colour by fixing a couple of hooks to the back of the box, making a couple of holes in the coloured cardboard and hooking it on. This way not only does it make it possible to change background colours easier but it also holds the cardboard in place without having to use sticky tape or blue tack which could in time ruin your backgrounds.

So here are some of the results from tonight's session. These were just things around the house that I could get my hands on and are merely experiments showing off a black background.

Autumnal Colours

Yesterday I got a chance to go down the road and take a couple of quick snaps of some Autumn trees which were losing their foliage fast. I had seen them earlier in the week as we took Alexander for a stroll and wanted to come back before they had gone completely bare. I love these intense colours, they are amazing.

Here are the results and as usual please feel free to leave comments and criticisms.
