Playing about!

On Google+ there are many daily photo themes that people can contribute to. One of my favourites is #halfnekkidthursday. Sometimes i have a bit of an experiment to try and add something a bit different. One thing i’ve played about with is a homemade pinhole attachment placed on my DSLR. A few photos can be found on a previous blog here.
Last week i tried another experiment using and old flashgun i have from the film days. It has a setting that give a slow pulse of flashes, and also a fast strobe effect that lasts about 15 seconds.
I set the camera up with the pinhole attachment and used a shutter speed of 2.5 seconds, then used an infra-red remote control to take the photo, and pressed the button on the flash at the same time. By sitting still and moving my head i got this result. Simple but effective.


I did virtually all the editing in the camera, i just tweaked it slightly on the PC, and cropped it a little.


About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
