Now that I finally have room to move in my little studio, I can go back doing what I love most. Photography under low light. That means I only allow a teeny weeny bit light to pass through the window. Sure I got sofboxes BUT still my room is too small for those that the challenge of not using them but the window light becomes my favorite during such shoot.
I consider it a good day if I get good lighting from outside, yep, that’s Holland for us bunch here. (Almost) always we get gray-depressive skies. Which prompted me (self-taught) using what I know now. It isn’t crazy at all if at times I give myself a pat on the shoulder when friends and my extremely critique husband find my compositions ‘beautiful’. To them I rely to be better.
Some say photographing flowers on black background is unappealing. It’s the unappealing that gives me challenge. What’s more, I LOVE using black background to make my subjects pop!
Ok, enough self loving there
This is a long overdue photopost ( as you can see on the watermark, the year is 2011 ) anyway, this photo was from inside a cave in Phetchaburi Thailand.
There wasn’t much to see inside the caves but buddhas and relics dating back King Rama IV period.
If you’re intersted to know more about the cave, just consult THIS LINK for more information. Press for time
If only I could skate! hah!
But I can’t, couldn’t, nooooooo. Boo!
So whatelse was there for me to do? Just be content and capture their moments on ice.
This is the beauty of winter especially if it hits below zero, everyone enjoys free skating on frozen canals!
It was great watching these boys last weekend.
It was my first time to see (or watch) ice hockey and I quite enjoyed it. What made it more fun to watch was the fact that it was just a few meters away from our house! Yes, these boys were playing on what usually was a small pond that I usually walked past by. The late cold front from Siberia frozed it up for people to enjoy.
Fun, isn’t it?!
Bless her heart for CARING.
One heartwarming scene I saw yesterday during my walk. I do not know the sweet lady but I gave her my card and told her this photo will be posted here. This was a quick shot, no room for me to compose, I just hope she likes it.
Oh yes baby! After almost 3 years (I think) of not using my Lensbaby, I finally actually used it today! But not my eyeglasses while using it and oh man, it really strained my eyes that I feel a bit crossed-eyed now (looks like it too)
Charlie of course, is always my available model to use it on. Look at that face? Those eyes can actually stop ladies of all ages on their track just to pet him. Ask my husband, they walk together more often than usual, ha ha ha!
