Clarendon 10K...

... a study of legs (and running shoes) during the Clarendon 10K.

Fun practice in manual with the 5DmkII and with panning. Photos showing motion shot at f4, 1/60 to 1/40 for just the right amount of blur. Used the 70-200 f2.8L IS but never racked it out given my close vantage point. Added a touch of vignetting and vibrancy to the colours for fun.

Nocturnal walk-about...

... a saturday midnight walk-about in the Rosslyn/Courthouse area of Arlington.
Manual shooting with the Canon nifty-fifty (50mm f1.8). This fixed lense is super fun...
and a great gift from my lover.

Self Portrait in Russia...

... while in Moscow a few months ago, i read a good Strobist article on high key lighting which provided some motivation. White tiled bathroom and three hotel lamps as spots with their shades taken off. No cable release. Had to use the self timer and place the camera on the toilet seat (which was down!).

Bought the hat at a local market. You can tell the bottles were full (and still sealed) so I did not have to pay the high mini-bar prices. In my hand was a coke with ice.
It turned out about 65% as good as i had envisioned it.

Kid's Tattoos...

... select pictures of a Children's Puppetry Group taught at the Theatre Lab as part of their summer's Children's Camp. The kids were supposed to be working on some kind of puppet show... but the day I saw them, they were getting cool temporary tattoos!
