    In spite of the above sentiments, the sense of beauty, sensuality, and elegance found in art are
    the ideal that we hope represents our true inner nature...

    And Hulyss you evoke those attributes in all of your portraits.

    Bob

    Thanks for replying Bob, actually I agree and really like seeing images that are a little less glamorous, nothing wrong with a bit of life's experiences reflected.

    I also like my little self portrait because it's a pretty good representation, obviously I've processed it to be a little harder than shot but I think that adds to it. I think I look my age and experiences, everyone else thinks I look rough!

    I have a few portraits lined up now and they are all of older people, I'm really looking forward to shooting a 90 year old woman next week, she's a real character so I hope I can do her justice!

    I'm loving this lighting experiment, I was really trying to afford to have 3 lights and a load of extra stuff but decided in the end to buy the one and work from there, it's enough to handle getting one right! I can also see where you are coming from with your daughter, I'm so enthusiastic about shooting but as I'm currently at my Swedish home, there are not many people about so finding models is a little tricky and hence the selfies, I can't remember being this excited to shoot in many years!

    I don't know the Colin Powel image you mention, do you have a link or further details? I'm always looking for inspiration, Hulyss provides plenty on here.

    Cheers and enjoy your Sunday.

    Mat,

    Here is a link:

    Colin Powell: Original selfie taker


    He really needs to up hip PP if he wants to play!

    It is getting a lot of coverage in this country...or did for a few days.

    Look forward to the nonagenarian's portrait if you can share it when it is completed.

    Regards,

    Evening!

    Started a new project recently using an old woodworking bench I bought a while ago. I really like the surface, scars from years of work and splashes of paint, I am putting together old tools and stuff to photograph on it, this is from earlier today after nearly getting a hernia from moving the bloody thing!

    Bit quiet around here, hopefully everyone is busy with far more important things!

    I'm not, so here's a shot from this morning, another from a series with this woodworking bench.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    New technique I'm trying out: daytime long exposures.

    This one felt like it wanted to be in the style of a watercolour, but surprisingly the cheap ($4) 8-stop ND filters I picked up can actually transmit a reasonable dynamic range in the right conditions.


    Nikon D90, 200/4 AIS at f/11 for 60sec, two 8-stop ND filters stacked.
    Olympic mountains from Victoria, BC.

    Any suggestions on technique or processing is greatly appreciated!

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Evening

    I've been working for the last couple of weeks on a series of images which I really like, the series is called trapped and records leaves and stuff caught in the ice melting in my garden.

    It's fascinating to photograph as things change all the time, the sunlight, reflecting clouds and trees along with the constant freeze and thaw means every image is unique. These small jpegs show very little, the full size tiffs are amazing with all the air bubbles and things.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Second day of testing long exposure daytime shots, learned lots of useful things (like using a dark cloth over the whole camera setup to eliminate flare; making sure the ND filters have NO dust on them; and the merits of sturdy tripods).

    Here's a wide angle shot of the Inner Harbour here in Victoria, BC (pre-tourist season):


    Nikon D90, Tokina 11-16/2.8 at f/16 for 20secs, 11 stops of ND filter.
    Four images stitched at 14mm to get a wider field of view without getting black corners from the filter holder.

    Photoshop CS2 for assembly with Silver FX for B&W processing.

    I plan to return soon to do some multi-minute exposures (so far have done up to four minutes, but they suffer from being on the early end of the learning curve).

    Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    guess it's time to get that lens. It's cheap now.
    I don't care what gear I have.

    I just got mine and very excited to use it. I am as fascinated with the pre-ASPH lens as I am with the ASPH lens. But now these film lens are becoming a classic at such bargain price. These pre-ASPH lens has their own drawing which is unique for portrait. I am looking forward to see your image with this lens.
