Here are today’s pictures taken in Birmingham on a masterclass for the BIPP. I’d like to thank Karl for hosting the event and his hospitality. The ten of us went on a journey of discovery and here is a small selection of the pictures I made.
A late showing of sunlight was welcome and used for this striking profile. ISO 250, 1/3200 second at f/4 using a 200mm lens.
A splash of flash from a single Speedlight mounted on a lighting stand triggered by an STE2. I set the ambient exposure on my Canon 5D to minus two stops with the camera in program mode. The flash had no compensation dialed in. The blue was added in Adobe Lightroom and enhanced in Photoshop. ISO 200, 1/200th at f/8
This picture was triggered by self timer and my camera was held aloft on my monopod. ISO 160, 1/400th second at f/8
Rebecca outside the Sea Life Centre and by a lift door. The colours have been enhanced with Lightroom and Photoshop.
Taken in a doorway outside an venue of the night. ISO 800, 1/100 second at f/4
A wonderful canal tunnel in the heart of the British waterways was the setting for this portrait. ISO 800, 1/25th second at f/4 using a 24-70mm lens.
This close up is the kind of shot that would benefit of the sensitivity of the D3, D700 or 5D Mk2. ISO 800, 1/25th second at f/4
I've used an on camera Speedlight panned to the right and zoomed into 105mm on ETTL.
