|My experiments in photography.|
While in Vancouver I found myself exploring a few photographic odds and ends.
|experimental—oil slick photography|
I've always loved oil slicks on pavement. One day, noticing some meltwater in a shopping mall parking lot, I decided to start taking some photos.
During 2002, I learned of the trick of reverse-mounting a lens for macro photography. It's an interesting technique.
This is a photography challenge in which each contestant shoots photos for the same set of themes. Each theme is expressed in a single word. There are 26 words, one for each letter of the alphabet.
Photographing the moon is a bit tricky. It's deceptively bright, and requires much less exposure than you'd imagine.
I picked up a used SMC 135mm lens for my Pentax DSLR for about ¥7000. I decided that it's equivalent 200mm focal length would be great for sports photography. And because I belonged to a casual basketball group, I decided that my friends and colleagues would become my guinea pigs. The results were pleasing.
Experiments and demonstrations with camera equipment.
A simple experiment to see whether I could use a long exposure to capture the speed and motion of a trip on the highway.
|experiments—photographing blowing trees|
An experiment to see if I could capture the motion of trees blowing in the wind with a long exposure (and a bunch of neutral density filters.
|experiments—digital black and white|
This is a test of different techniques for getting black and white images from my DSLR. All done in Lightroom.
Tinkering with a strobe held off-camera. Not rocket science, but an interesting new frontier for me.
|experiments—ghosts of Shinagawa|
I made some long-exposure images in Shinagawa station, capturing the passers by anonymously.
