Rock with Spider

This was meant as a practice shot to play with a tilted plane of focus with my tilt-shift lens. Too bad I miscalculated the exposure so badly. My newest new-blog entry: matthewpiers.com/B/140413



I like bricks.

These were just quick shots taken with my little camera as a diversion. If they were really meant to be a series then I either would have needed the horizon to be in the same position for the third photo, or have more photos with the horizons placed differently to balance it out.

I like series.


Three Basic Photos

I like bricks.

These are straight from the GR with just the default lightroom development. And cropped to square, of course.

The first photo is taken without flash under direct sun, while the second is using an off-camera flash for fill without changing the camera settings. The third is taken with the camera set to underexpose by about two stops and a bit of a boost to the flash power. This is so much easier with a compact camera than an SLR.

I like leaf shutters.

BTS Humber Bay II

Another trip to Humber Bay, with pretty much the same setup as before.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
