Took a wonder down to the harbour tonight to try and photograph the Christmas light display . I have been the last couple of years and as yet i still cant find a composition i am happy with. Also trying to balance shutter speed and iso is a little tricky, push the shutter speed to much and the movement of the boats causes motion blur to higher ISO and the image is grainy.Read More
Its been a while since i managed to get some time for photography, been very busy after buying a house and now putting in a new Kitchen, but today i reached a point in the kitchen where i cant do anymore until the worktops go in so i headed off down to Ramsgate Harbour to see this years Christmas light display. I have tried to photograph this the last couple of years but always struggled to get decent weather and a calm sea but this year was better conditions than previous attempts.Read More
Monday evening was Camera Club night at the Isle of Thanet Photographic Society. This week was Studio night and our models for the evening were anything but your usual high fashion models. Some members of the IOTPS brought in some studio equipment to photograph our subjects. Due to the number of members and the fact that radio triggers were required to fire the strobes it was a little difficult to work in a logical way. Another club member decided that we could set up a single speedlite fired through a umbrella outside the main hall.
The following images were all shot in that way.
This is Cut Throat Steve, a great character who used to teach gymnastics while serving in the armed forces, he did several tours of duty in various conflicts around the globe and is currently the proud owner of a recently assembled trike thanks to his fellow club members.
This is Kevin Bolden, a member of The South East 17 division
They were both active members of The Harley-Davidson Riders Club of Great Britain . Thanks to Kevin, Steve and all the members that gave up there time to come and model for us and hope that between our members we were able to provide you with some usable images.
