[slideshow] Underneath the dark starry skies, and across the small wooden dock overseeing a silent black lake, there I was, tinkering with my camera, trying to see if taking pictures of the stars is possible with only 30 seconds exposure. It was a first for me, and though largely dismissed by my friend as 'impossible', I thought to myself "meh".
A bunch of my friends were laying down facing up when they suddenly shouted "Meteor!!" and started pointing to an area in the sky. I gave up my camera tinkering and joined them laying down on a patch of sleeping bag hastily laid on hard concrete ground, and started pointing whenever a meteor was seen, burning the last of its life entering the atmosphere as a bright white trail. There weren't nearly as much meteors as was predicted, much less to be called "meteor shower", but we had our fun. Nerdy jokes were crackled, talks about equator lines, black holes, and star mass filled the cold dawn as our breath freeze up in the air.
I stood up and continue tinkering with my camera, taking long exposure pictures of the dock, once in a while I would hear my friends shouting in the background. In one of the pictures, I noticed that a single star was visible near the horizon. I turned my camera towards one of the cabin under the starry skies, and within a few shots and tries, I managed to get one picture that I found satisfactory. Sure it was not as good as a million other star pictures out the in the internet, but I was unprepared, and that was my first time; I'll take that as a success.
We ended the night taking a photo of OHIO, the sign and pride of our university, and left with the stars in our heart and our pictures. T'was a starry night indeed.
For funsies, me and two of my friends (seen at the right) decided to go photohunting in German village, Columbus, OH. Let me assure you, the weather is freezing; very much so, that i still have difficulty typing this post. The resulting pictures on the other hand, are as warm as a fuzzy puppy. Out of ~200 picts, I managed to get 9 good ones. Not bad forthe first outdoor photo taking experience; all thanks to my good companies; L.S. and W.S. (again, see to the right).
I am putting two photos here just because; for more pictures, check out my newly established DevArt-photography page:
For those of you who actually goes out to click that link, thank you so much for actually taking the time to do so. :)
Anyway, Enjoy! :)
Oh, and also: Merry Christmas! :)
So after getting my Canon 60D, I finally have some time to take a bunch of picts other than cardboard milk and darth vader flashdrives. One of the new picture is the one below It's, as you might notice, my guitar on top of a very useful piece of crimson blanket. This is one of a hundred (literally) photos that I take on the same project (guitar on red blanket). It came pretty close to whatI expected, but it could've been better. As a good friend of mine said, f2.5 is bokeh enough.
Another pict is this one : A picture of two of my friends; one somewhat old-ish, one very new. One of these two people just came from Canada, and is somewhat notorious there (if somebody ever ask you about this, sorry, Christina, it's my fault). For those of you living under a rock, and does not know her, she actually has a website:
Both a great artist and a great architect-to-be, feel free to contact her for your next house-building inquiries.
The other guy is Hantan, dude has his own dev-art:
A great photographer, in fact he's one of my photo guru, he also focuses on construction and momusu (for those of you who don't know what momusu is, shame on you. is what he'd say). Be sure to check out his awesome Dev-Art, and again, contact him for your next house-building inquiries
