Art what I did

Experiments with a 550D, Photoshop and MS Paint. Oh and sometimes a pencil or biro.
Some moss, out of focus, at night. Lit with a green light on that Android app.

This is a macro shot of the end of a broken wooden spade. A metal bolt runs across the middle of the image, which - out of context - looks sort of like a wooden cave of some sort.

Not really a lot to say about this other than the fact that light painting is a lot of fun. This was using some cheapo finger LED’s form eBay. Also used at Glastonbury…

Some more light painted arches, this time using the colour cycling mode in the ‘Colour Flashlight’ Android app.

Shot near Oldbury Power Station again, some arches created using the backlight on a phone, and a few thousand attempts. Started messing around with this and can’t find the original image at the moment, so ignore that bit.

This is wales, I think. Shot near Oldbury Power Station, near Thornbury, Bristol-ways. Some climbing involved in getting this. Was very misty and bloody freezing.

These were some flowers in our garden this springtime. I did look them up at the time but forget the name now. Also shot with that Canon Powershot whose model I forget, in its fantastic Super Macro mode. Not sure which version I prefer, they each have their qualities. What do you think?

This is an old gas torch that was in our 110 year old house when we bought it. This was using a Canon Powershot whose model number I can never remember (look up the EXIF on the image?) in super macro mode. Was outside and quite dark so lit using the ‘Colour Flashlight’ app for Android, with camera set to 2” exposure. Moved the phone around a bit to get a nice even orange glow. Did some additional sharpening on the rust in post. Quite like this one.

This one’s straight off the SD card. Looked up and saw the moon happened to be in line with an aerial from where I was sitting. Made me think about all the constant wireless transmission happening around us - invisibly. Crazy.
