June 30th it rained.

Had my camera and a small tripod, while stopping at my dads house. Glanced and saw some lightning in the distance. Originally, I wanted to take some slow shutter/long exposures of the fireflies that were lazily drifting above the grass. But that idea quickly warped into some sort of lighting shot before the rain hit.

With no bug spray, I decided to embark on the patient, trial and error task that is capturing lighting.

Placing the camera almost on the ground, I originally composed a shot with our front mailbox, and a wind turbine in the back ground, in hopes that the lighting would strike in frame to create a very cool image.

After, missing a handful of lighting strikes with that composition, I decided to switch it up and go for the lighting, as the storm was moving east quite quickly.

While many attempts were made, this was the closest I came to anything spectacular.

iso 100 f22 30seconds shutter. 17mm kit, canon 60d + an umbrella and the horizon.

Thanks for reading.

After dropping this camera down a mountain, I’ve started wrestling with light leaks. Some may say that Light leaks are creative and artsy, but not when you are trying to take a non-lightleaked photo..Duhh.

This was one of the few on the roll that was not affected. Haven’t really figured out why yet.

Thank you so much for following, and reading my blog.

Don’t worry i will get back to more photo adventures soon. Here is a artsy pic from a Highs Set last night. I’ve been lucky to be able to go on the road with them for a few days and take pics.

         Last fall I dropped my Yashica SLR down the side of a mountain. After hitting what seemed like every possible rock on the way down, the back opened, to expose the ever expensive kodak portra 400 film to the elements aka the sun. After recovering the camera I wound the film up and claimed it to be completely burnt, meaning there wouldn’t be any usable pictures on the roll.

Read the full story here.

Some months have past since then and I have been staring at the wound roll on my desk in remembrance of that day.

Eventually I couldn’t take it any more so out of curiosity, I went ahead an had the local photo shop develop the roll for me.

To my amazed excitement, there were a few usable photo’s that had been tucked/rolled tight enough into the spool still visible on the negative. – So, not wanting to pay quite a price to have the roll scanned post development, I decided to look up some tricks on how to use a flatbed scanner to scan negatives.

The method I chose was to use the light from a Smart phone or Tablet to light the back of the negative while on the flatbed.

It looks a little silly but to my amazement, It worked. (kinda) – I’ve never really been into “Lomo” culture but I definitely jumped in with this technique. What’s lomo?>click here.

The picture is of some birds on a wire.

I saw the mass amount of black birds migrating together on the wire and had to slowly stop my car, grab my camera, get close enough and take a picture. Only to drop my entire camera down a mountain a few days later.

There are a few other photo’s on the roll that I will post over the next few weeks. Feel free to follow along.

Again, thanks for reading.
