Things I point my camera at... (lots of photos)

Just thought I'd show some of my photography.

I don't consider myself an artist with my photography. Most of my stuff is simply documenting what I see, with fairly limited creativity. Occasionally I get inspired and can manage something abstract or but not with any consistency.

I typically photograph wildlife, macros and landscapes, with a bit of sport (as some friends of mine play roller derby) and other random stuff. I rarely photograph people - as in portraits, etc. They're weird.

Now I've found the bird thread I'll be spamming it a lot.

My usual kit is an Olympus E-M1, 75mm f1.8, 75-300, 12-40 f2.8, and 60mm macro.

Photos time.

Wildlife (mostly birds)

A Spotted Harrier, Ardrossan, SA


A female Superb Fairy Wren - Mt Lofty, SA

Landscapes

Westerlies - Yorke Peninsula


Coast near Beachport

Macro

Ignition


Huntsman's Portrait.

Sports

Roller Derby


Some car race thingie.

Could have some tech details on the match head shot. I'd love to try that.

Sure.

It was shot with the 60mm macro and 9fps burst mode (And for this shot I'd recommend having a filter on the lens for protection. Focus was set prior to firing the burst, and no flash was used.

Because exposure couldn't really be determined, it took a few tries to get that right.

It was shot with the E-M5, so I didn't have the same burst length I do with the E-M1. Only about 1.5-2 seconds. Therefore timing was a bit tricky.

It was a dodgy setup, with the match head clamped in a pair of pliers, and ignited by a second match. My girlfriend fired the shutter as I moved the lit match close enough to ignite the unlit one.

If I were to do it again, I'd use a gas lighter as you can direct the heat and ignite the match without the lighter appearing in the photo.

Here's a few pics of the sequence.


Just prior to ignition. You can see the second match.


Ignition has begun on far side of match.


Ignition moving around the match head.


Almost all ignited

And finally, another effort, much harder to achieve. For this shot you need to stop the match, and get it to ignite in just the right spot on the matchbox.

Also, if using a gas igniter you should be able to do it single handed, as you can use a gas lighter with one hand.

Still here. Busy working on a hydrologic-isotope balance model for lakes. Maybe I'll post some lake photos in a bit.

Had to leap off the trail to make way for a dogsled team.

My understanding is that, if you are on the trail when they pass, the whole team is allowed to run over you, piddling, humping and nipping all the way.

I'm not sure if the musher takes part.

I took another shot of a dogsled team when out running the other day. One of the dogs looked like it had a bunch of blood on its muzzle. Don't know if it bit its tongue, or grabbed a passing ptarmigan/xskier. I was a bit hesitant to post it around here, because so many fragile snowflakes who have beloved pets can't understand how things might be different with working/athlete dogs.

Photobucket started being a fuck, so I can't show you either.
