Flash Portraits

The final project in Camera Techniques II was to photograph a portrait using at least one external flash.  Overall I was very pleased with the results and I received some great images.


Tilt/Shift and Still Life

In Camera Techniques II, the students were recently tasked with using the tilt/shift lenses to make a full scale scene look “miniature”.  They also were given an assignment to create a still life scene and photograph it with the aid of an external flash.  I received some great images for both assignments, here are a few of the highlights.

Science Works!

Last night, Gwinnett Tech hosted “Science Works” as part of the Atlanta Science Festival.  We helped the participants create photos using a technique called “Painting with Light” that involves using long exposures and a variety of fun light sources (flashlights, lightsabers, etc.).  Thanks to everyone who stopped by to give it a try, we hope you had fun!

(P.S. If you look closely you will be able to spot Beeker and Dr. Bunsen from the Muppets as well as Chopper from the Gwinnett Braves!)

Strobe Party

This week in Camera Techniques II, we learned about advanced flash features such as Multi-Mode and Slow Speed Sync.  Check out some of the fun we had practicing with “stroboscopic” style photography  (multiple flashes over the course of one exposure.)
