CCC Evening of Table Top Set Ups

Thanks Barry, Charles and Shelagh for a fantastic range of activities last night at Wednesday Workshop. I stole a few minutes from my 'set up' to photograph the soap bubbles, polarised spoons, splashed pepper and moon in the hand. The soap bubbles are a perpetual challenge not yet overcome to get sufficient depth of field and shutterspeed (the surface swirls continuously) in dark conditions.

Rockscape Portfolio

I always enjoy taking and preparing images for the CCC Print portfolio competition where we have to present 5 images arranged in a panel. This year, as almost always, I struggled to get the fifth image. On the night, I am told the judge actually thought a different one didn't fit too well. One and two are my favourites  and set me on the quest for another three!

Cambridge Getting to Know Camera

We had a day in Cambridge yesterday with CCC getting to know our cameras. I certainly discovered that I can't handhold the 50-140 lens at 140mm at 1/60th second (last image) but can hold the 10-24mm down to 1/8th second. Otherwise played with multiple exposures including panoramas at the Judge Institute and later at the Fair.
