Strathaven Fireworks Night 2013
Hi all,

Some shots I took last night at a local fireworks show. It's the first time I've shot fireworks, so although I'd read up a little on the theory I wasn't sure what to expect. Little sprinklings of rain didn't help the cause either. Anyway, I'm moderately happy with how a few of them turned out.

Quote from majod :is that your PC case? looks a bit overheated :P

It's handy for warming up a sauna though!
Ok so with my new camera I'm going to make some portraits.
Here's first try with very lovely lady.
Feel free to like my fanpage to see more of my pictures.
The new Canon EF 50mm/1.4 arrived! What a great lens to play with!

Another quick shot ... Cheers, everybody!



somehow managed to take this pic with the rather puny camera in my RAZR I. Apart from the resize I did nothing to it.

I'd been looking at getting a telephoto lens for a while and after much consideration and several checks of my bank balance, I plumped for the Tamron 70-300 F4-5.6 VC USD. From reviews, this lens seems to give decent image quality and it's pretty good in terms of value for money. Of course, I'd prefer to have one of the F2.8 or F4 lenses with constant aperture throughout the focal range, but even the cheapest of those is significantly more costly than this was. So...I got it at the start of the year and had to wait a while for some decent weather to go out and shoot in. I went to Strathclyde Park and Baron's Haugh hoping to get some interesting subjects. The wildlife turned out not to be as varied as I would have wanted, but there were a lot of swans, so...

So I went with some friends to an abandoned house in a nearby town, and the idea was to try some "creepy" styled photos. Moderately happy with the results.

This was my first real use of the Olympus E-M5 and I'm in love with the thing. I'm still a long way to learning what it can do and the kit lens, although not bad in image quality, is too damn slow - combine that with the dark indoors.
Also, I'm not that comfortable using the viewfinder with glasses, it's weird. Does anyone do that as well? Any tips? I never used a viewfinder before.

Long story short, a lot of photos came out worse than I saw at the time from the VF/LCD screen. The next ones will be better.




Full set is here, criticism is welcomed.
Quote from de Souza :Creepy Stuff

Quite impressive! You greatly captured the mood there, and I especially like how you worked out the wall textures. About the girl: At first sight I thought she was a doll! So, that speaks for her make-up.
Correct We've shot it last Saturday afternoon
not bad don... 5/10. Like this one

Lots of nice shots on your site Hazaky
I'm not the best photographer or anything but I try. I'm no justice for my camera.

After a lot of tries and a lot of imagination, I was able to capture saturn. I added a little shadow to the main planet's disc to allow everyone to differenciate the rings.
