Coccinelle!

Finalmente sono riuscito a fare qualche scatto che avevo in mente…
ho dovuto comprare un nebulizzatore come si deve (4euro) altrimenti con quelli dei detersivi non si riuscivano a fare goccioline precise…^_^

questi sono gli scatti migliori, per ora il tema è solo la coccinella, se mi vengono altre idee farò (oramai dopo agosto) altre immagini creative….

Benoit Paillé: Surreal Landscape Photography

Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé is turning out some interesting landscape photography using a 1×1 meter, suspended, glowing square. And it’s worth noting that Benoit’s images are not Photoshopped.

Benoit Paillé:
“I hate lanscape. So I decide to stage my own vision of lanscape. I create an art light installation for poetic space/time purpose…

…This is a photography of light installation (real light, real square 1×1 meter) I set in nature or where during the night you have usually no lightning, I try to redefine the space/landscape for my own purpose: create a poetic space/time moment. And questioning the reality of what is a landscape.”

Creative shoots

20 minuti, una teglia di vetro, un pannello di acetato con un foglio di carta velina incollato, una Canon 5d con un Tamron 90mm macro e un flash posto sul retro a 1/32…

un po’ di pazienza qualche tentativo a vuoto e 2 minuti su lightroom per croppare la zona interessata…questa è la ricetta per degli scatti creativi e anche se blasonati,sempre accattivanti!!!

In una serata torrida ho deciso di provare il set-up per fare drop photography come suggeriva ieri DigitalCameraworld e devo ammettere che è relativamente semplice.

Non contento ho provato anche a fare degli scatti con il 50ino scollegato dalla fotocamera per creare degli sfocati creativi che devo ammettere mi hanno veramente colpito!!2 suns

Great photo ideas for more creative water drop photography

Although it’s unlikely that Cartier-Bresson had water drop photography in mind when he talked about the decisive moment, his words ring true when trying to capture the split-second moment a water drop hits the surface below it.

There are several high-tech and costly techniques you can use to get consistent and repeatable water drop shots, such as using electronically activated valves to produce accurately timed drops, and movement triggers that will fire your flash, but it’s surprising just what you can achieve using much simpler techniques and kit that costs just a few pounds.

First, think about how you will create the drops themselves. There are a number of ways to do this, including creating a tiny hole in a suspended plastic bag or using an eyedropper. The most important thing is to ensure that the drops fall in the same place each time, and that the frequency is reasonably predictable. We used a syringe and a small piece of tubing attached to a stand.

You’ll also need a container for the drops to fall into. Any dish or tray will do, but the depth will affect the shape of the droplet, and if you want to capture the reflection of the splash it needs to be large enough to avoid including the edge in your shot.

You can also try changing the viscosity and surface tension of the water. A small amount of washing-up liquid or rinse-aid will lower the surface tension, while adding glucose or glycerine liquid will produce a thicker solution.

It’s easy to get a little hooked on water drop photography, so once you’ve got the basic set-up right be prepared to spend hours pursuing the perfect shot. Here are five techniques you can use to capture very different water-drop images.

5 photo ideas for creative water drop photography

Improve your water drop photography: change your viewpoint

Change your viewpoint
Positioning the camera almost level with the surface of the liquid allows you to capture more of the drop’s reflection for an arty look.

Improve your water drop photography technique: before the splash

Before the splash
You don’t have to capture the splash to create stunning images. Capturing the water droplets mid-flight can also result in beautiful images.

Improve your water drop photography: add some color

Inject some colour
Adding a food dye to the liquid is an easy way to add striking colour. You can also try adding different colours to the drop and static liquids.

Improve your water drop photography: create multiple water drops

Create multiple drops
Once you’ve mastered single drops you can try to capture images of the collision between two drops, with amazing results.

Improve your water drop photography: try using milk

Try milk instead
Due to the very different viscosity and characteristics of the liquid, using milk instead of water will produce softer shapes.

A simple water drop photography set-up

And finally, for those wanting quick results, here is our simple guide to capturing water drops in action. You don’t need costly kit to get impressive results:

A simple water drop photography technique: step 1

Step 1: Create the drops
We used a syringe and some plastic tubing attached to a simple clamp-stand to produce our drops. It’s important that the drop falls in the same place each time, and a small 1ml syringe allowed us to control the droplets accurately.

A simple water drop photography technique: step 2

Step 2: Think about lighting
Placing a piece of frosted glass behind the water, then lighting it with the off-camera flash, proved to be the easiest way to light our drops. The flash was fired using a radio trigger, and was set to 1/32 power manually.

A simple water drop photography technique: step 3

Step 3: Camera settings
With the camera on a tripod we used manual focus and exposure. Some test drops were used to set the focus by placing a ruler in the position where the droplets fell, then carefully pre-focusing on this point.

Tamron af sp 90mm macro 1:1 impressioni.

Inizio con questa frase perchè sia chiaro da subito che il tamron 90mm macro (ultimo modello) è un obiettivo che è impossibile non amare.

Prima di tutto va secondo me citato il prezzo…si trova usato a meno 290E e nuovo sulle 350E, gia solo questo lo rende molto competitivo.

Secondo ma non meno importante è la qualità costruttiva,solido ma leggero,con una ghiera molto comoda.

La qualità dell’ottica è sorprendente.

Nitidissimo e luminoso, ha un buono sfocato e si presta molto anche per i ritratti.

Adoro quest’ottica non lo nascondo, a mio avviso unico grande difetto è l’autofocus lento e rumoroso, va sottolineato però che in macro si usa poco.

Quindi mi sento di consigliare il Tamron 90mm a tutti coloro vogliono avvicinarsi alle foto macro e/o hanno bisogno di un ottica per fare foto ravvicinate.

Spero di esservi stato di aiuto,

ciao e alla prossima.

Primi “splash” photo test..

splash set

sistemazione del set in cucina…

ieri in mezz’ora di tempo ho provato la mia vasca di plexigas nuova nuova e mi sono dato da fare al volo con delle prove veloci…

splash food testing

in teoria il limone doveva essere girato verso la camera

i risultati non mi entusiasmano però sono vicino al risultato che voglio ottenere…serve solo un altro po’ di sperimentazione….

splash food testing

troppe gocce sul vetro per i miei gusti

…devo trovare un modo per riuscire a scattare a 1/160 e non a 1/125 limite che mi viene dato dal trigger cinese, prossimo test uso lo yongnuo forse ce la fa!

Altra cosa da fixare sono le goccie sul vetro… la vasca è 30X30cm e nonostante tutto si sporca subito… devo ingegnarmi o semplicemente trovare una buona spazzola pulisci vetro…^_^
ciao e alla prossima.
