Day #209

Day #209Title: Cracking Up
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: I’ve had this idea in my little book for ages but wasn’t really sure how to make it look convincing, so it had remained on the list, un-taken. But yesterday’s workshop with Viveca Koh gave me some excellent pointers. The cracked texture was also taken today – it’s the bottom of an old ramekin where I dump used teabags before binning them!  I’m really pleased how this one turned out – worth waiting to get it right. And perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #68 – Cracked.

Day #208

Day #208Title: Heliophile
Location: Chatham Green, Braintree
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: GNPC had organised an excellent day-long practical workshop with RPS Fellow Viveca Koh today. She demonstrated how to use your own photos to produce textures, custom brushes and custom borders, as well as how to put together a multiplicity shot. Having done one or two of these already, I didn’t have much trouble with the latter. But it was fun playing with the textures and borders. Here you see me and my clones posing at Whitbread’s Farm Business Park where the event was held. We don’t usually worship the sun, but it’s not every day you have a solar array to play with!
