11/50-The Arrow Of Time


11/50
The Arrow Of Time


Didn't have much time today, well, I lie, I did but I filled it riding bikes. So just a simple photo of a pocket watch, had to make sure I got a nice shadow so I had somewhere to put the title.

10/50-Nowhere To Hide


10/50
Nowhere To Hide


Another photo in the woods, I should stop. But James was doing an illusion picture, which you can see in the link at the bottom, so I thought I would. As you'll see in the video there were a lot more frames just I couldn't piece them all together and still have it looking good so this is it. No set-up diagram either, partly because I can't be arsed, partly because I can't even remember where the lights were. Oh well.

PS. Check out James' photo for today. Illusion-y.

9/50-Now, I Am Become Death, Destroyer Of Worlds


9/50
Now, I Am Become Death, Destroyer Of Worlds




This Hindu quote was said by Professor Oppenheimer when he was talking about the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It seriously make you consider, does there come a point when man has too much power or too much knowledge that he becomes his own destroyer? Should we be allowed the power to decide whether millions of people live or die at the click of a button?

8/50-Catch Up

8/50
Catch-Up


Today I headed down to a dark alley and had a great little catch-up with Jake for the first time in 5 years. We talked about physics and maths and cameras and shit, it was good.
Also I completely forgot to do a video whilst I was there so I'll get a short one up tomorrow, just explaining the lighting in more detail if the diagram doesn't do a good enough job.

  PS. Check out James' photo for today, it is seriously cool, check out his photoshop talent!

Don't Take Me For A Mug


Did a coffee splash photo today, managed to get some nice beige/browny colours which match the coffee. Excuse the little mistakes in the video, think I read out the flash powers wrong!

5/50-James Woods

5/50
James Woods


Sly little Family Guy reference in the name...
I used the flash and an orange gel to create some flare in the top corner, like the sun was setting or such. Managed to break an umbrella as well, stupidass wind.
An alternate picture...
And the set-up...

4/50-Who's Side Are You On?

4/50
Who's Side Are You On?


Picked up Avengers Vs X-men on Thursday so I thought I'd pamper it and give it it's own photo. This wasn't how I envisioned this picture to look at all when I came up with the idea but I really love how dark and the sci-fi glow it has!

3/50-Suit Up

3/50
Suit Up


Sorry about another clothes related photo but it's a lot different from yesterday's so it can be excused. It's a massive ballache to focus on self portraits, took at least 40 attempts to just get one focused on the right place.

PS. Check out James' photo for today, a 1915 Kodak Brownie!

2/50-The Smell of Leather

2/50
The Smell of Leather

Seeing as it's prom tomorrow I thought I'd show off the shoes and what seems to be a 4390480 year old polishing kit. Took a while to get lighting I liked in such a small cramped environment. Here's how the lights looked...
And another quick video to show it in more detail.

PS. Check out James' photo from today, it's coffee, mmm.

And I'm even doing a video for every picture, aren't I nice.
