Who knew reaching the three digits would cause me to fall off the wagon. It’s been a week. I’m pretty disappointed with myself but I’m just going to get back on the horse and pretend nothing happened. Yippee Kayay as they say.
It was the final day of Vancouver’s Celebration of Light, so I finally made it down there to take pictures.
Seeing as I was going to be down there for the entire day, I didn’t want to lug my tripod around with me so I brought my gorilla pod thing. Gorilla pod? is that what it’s called? …anyway, I figured that would be perfectly suitable for stilling the camera to get some long exposures. I didn’t think about the fact that the camera would be so low to the ground and I likely won’t be able to get a clear shot. It turned out ok, I attempted some shots using the “black card” technique. It worked really well for the shots that weren’t completely over exposed in the centre of the blasts (there were a lot of those). This is one of the shots using 30 second shutter speed and covering my lens with the cap intermittently.
So I’ve been trying to get a pic of the moon for some time now. I know it seems pretty easy… go outside, take pic. But for some reason all I was getting was a blurred blob. Tonight it seemed to turn out better than I’ve seen so far. So it’s getting posted. Meh.
Whoa… I just zoomed in on the photo and you can see the crater! PLEASED!
