Nananaa- Batman!

No, I’m not really a Batman fan.  But I think this is oh, so adorable. : )


The Dark [K]night

I love playing with light.  A whole bunch.  This is one of my favorite experimentations with it.  I lit a candle, made my little brother put his Batman costume on, and placed him next to the light.  I had to set up my tripod for this one, since I was shooting at night.  Since it was rather dark out, I had to work with a slower shutter speed and pray that my brother wouldn’t move.  : P

Well, he did.  But I managed to get at least one really good picture before he lost his concentration.


“Holy long exposure, Batman!”

Probably my favorite abstract technique is panning.  Essentially, you set the camera to a longer shutter speed and spin, zoom, and/or move the camera to get a blurred, streaked look.  I love it.

One of the things that’s really fun [but ohmygosh, so hard] to do is move the camera at the same rate as your subject to make the subject sharp and the background blurred.

In this photo, my little brother was [not unusually] running around in his Robin costume.  So I decided to make him run back and forth for about a half hour.  This is the best result, and I’m rather pleased with it. : )
