Horses and Holgas…….

 Guard Horse

I took my Holga out for a spin the other day. One of the things about using the Holga is that you need to throw everything out the window and just press the shutter. You’ll get a picture but whether its a picture you want is a completely different matter. I find this image to be beautifully captured by the Holga. The heavy vignette just adds to the mood. This was taken in broad daylight wit the sun at its bestest bright….

Lamp posts

The Highway-2

I took these series of images from the car whilst driving back home. A bit precarious I know. All I did was to set the camera on aperture f/8 and focussed at the hyperfocal distance. Using the sunny 16 rule, I set the shutter at 1/250 (2 stops over the 1/100 at ISO 100 and giving 1 stop back for the cloud overcast). Hoping that the windscreen wasn’t shown I simply aimed in front of me and clicked.

The Highway

Maybe a tad over exposed as there are no details on the sky but i think it works here. I love the way the lamps on the lamp posts is still visible.

Bird in flight

Sometimes, you walk around and something happens in a split second. You have to be ready to take that shot. When I’m just walking around I always have my camera in a ready position which is simply setting it at f/8, adjusting the shutter for correct exposure and focussed at the hyperfocal distance. When something happens I allow myself to react instinctively. Point and shoot. If I have the time I refocus to get maximum sharpness. Most of the time the moment is lost and a second shot is either not possible or not interesting enough.

This is one such occasion. I was at Batu Caves the other day and was about to go home. Batu Caves has a lot of pigeons flying around and I saw a pigeon about to land about 5 meters in front of me. I quickly took my camera to eye level and snapped this shot. Read the rest of this entry »
