Over the past few weeks I have been experimenting with light painting. I managed to capture some great images with some very beautiful and talented models. The first couple of times we were just about eaten alive by the mosquitoes but on the third attempt it worked out much better.
I recently visited the first Motorcycle show of the year to see if I would like to get anything new for my riding season. There were a number of motorcycles that were up for sale that I certainly would like to have taken home, however I would have had a tough time explaining to the “Boss” that I spent a couple of grand on a new toy. I had to satisfy myself with just being able to capture a number of images of the machines on the ground.
Along with the motorcycles there was entertainment put on as well as a leather fashion show. I captured some of the shots from those events too.
Here as some more of the bikes there.
I participated in a Bodypainting shoot with the lovely Rebecca Ann. She was painted in the style of a Celtic Warrior by the incomparable Bill Milward. The results as you can see were spectacular. One of the neat things is that one of the rooms we shot in was painted blue lending itself to being able to use it for Chromakey(Green Screen) photography allowing me to edit some the pictures and put them in Celtic like scenes. The overall product turned out amazing.
Conducted another wonderful photoshoot with a new model. Although not overly familiar with fashion modelling she is very adept at COSPLAY. This allowed her to excel as a model in both fashion and COSPLAY. I have a number of shots below of her in the various outfits. Suffice it to say she is a natural.
I just upgraded to Photoshop CC and decided to pull up some older photos to see what I could do with them. I also found a couple of free Photoshop Actions (www.panosfx.com) that provided some really interesting effects. These photos were done using some of those actions.
Today’s theme: In the air. This shot of a hockey ball that belongs to Ollie. He saw it under the futon and wanted it almost to the point of crawling under the futon to get it. My daughter pulled it out and tossed it in the air. So I figured…why not add this to the Project as the “In the Air” shot.
The sky today had no clouds…unfortunately when that is the case in winter time no clouds is usually accompanied by cold temperatures. Today was no different. The mercury plunged to a frosty -30º Celcius. Needless to say I stepped outside for only a moment to capture this shot of the blue sky.
Today’s theme was opposites so I figured why not combine them in the same picture. A glass of water in front of a fire. FIRE & WATER.
The theme today is Yellow so I thought that I would capture the yellow of the yellow yolks
