Wet shoes

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, sigma flash

we went down to the beach and the waves were massive, me and joe stood right next to the rocks where they were breaking and got completely soaked, my shoes took a beating.
i drank about half a pint of saltwater, i would have taken my camera down but i didn't want it drinking salt water aswell.
later on we had pie for tea and charlie showed me his homemade space suit, more of that tomorrow

taken in my room

Charlie and the plastic box

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, sigma flash on camera

i took this photo today as charlie was playing with a plastic box, and i am really happy with it, it was completely candid and un-posed.
i like how the clear plastic box acts as a diffuser for the flashlight filling his face and gives his skin a soft look.
family series continued

Camden show

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, sigma flash

our band went to play a gig in camden in london with some other bands, and it was good.
people in order of appearance, andrej, chris, tim, run, WALK! and Crocus
Crocus we're amazing and there singer broke pretty much all of the venues equipment, one of the best live bands in UK at the moment without a doubt
i used typical gig/party settings strong flash with about 1/10 at 6.3, im glad that the images are so rich in contrast

Awkward dog

canon eos 350d, canon 18-55mm lens

i love how posed this photo looks, even though it wasn't at all.
my dog dill over to the far right just doesn't know whats going on, she obviously thinks i have food.
however this photo is quite noisy around the edges, not something i can say im happy with, but lucky this has changed since ive got the 40d.
obvious family series is obvious

Dog 2

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, sigma flash of camera

i took this photo today with a shutter speed of about 1/20 and flash, i like the way that its let in more of the ambient light coming from the room lights but the flash has lit the dogs face nicely as well

Night landscapes

i really like town at this time of year, its so cold and bleak but this makes for nice urban landscapes with only a few cars around.
at night i really notice the lights around town, i like all the oranges, yellows and harsh whites

Cold practice prep

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, of camera flash bottom left

this is joe, mum and phil in my room talking before me and joe and phil headed to band practice. i never really use black and white because i think its overused at the moment, getting colours correct is alot more interesting for me, however once in a while its ok

Dog carpet

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

this is our dog dill, she lies on this part of the landing carpet pretty much all day because its quite sunny, this also means that its extra hairy when it comes to hoovering that spot
