Photo: Across the Ice

Ice on the roof of my step-mom’s car, Jan. 19, 2006. The temperature on the surface is colder than the air temperature, which is why your car can have ice on the windshield in the morning even if it’s 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

For lighting, I used a flashlight. :grin:

Photo from the passenger’s seat on I-95 from Dec. 27, 2005. The exit is Old Dixie Highway, but the sign is blurred because this was a two second exposure at 70 miles per hour.

Photo: Red Laser

A 1-second exposure of a red laser pointer that I moved in this pattern. This is the same type of photo as Fiery Hearts, at the same place. The line is dimmer because this photo is exposed less.

The break in the laser on the left is the indent for the window. There is a line of reflections in the center which looks interesting.

The Brighter Bulb

Light bulbs at the makeup room back stage of Daytona State College’s theater. I snuck in after hours and saw one light bulb was much brighter than the others. Instant photo opportunity! I’ve published similar photos before (one out of many concept), but this is slightly different.

Below the light bulbs are mirrors. You can see your reflection in all of them if you stand in the middle of the room. I may use the room for photography if I find a model.

Photo: Light the Way

Light the Way

A car with yellow headlights illuminates the road on a dark, cloudy evening.

This car had lights that were unusually colored. I bet they had a yellow filter over them, but they looked brighter than normal too.

For editing, I decided to go with really warm colors, much more so than the actual scene. It gives a better mood than bluish tones. Also, I dodged the ground to make it look like the headlights are brighter, while adding contrast and burning the corners to make the scene more eye-catching. Because I shot this at ISO400, I brought out a good bit of grain with the editing.

I borrowed a Sigma 105mm lens from a friend to take this and other photos, which I recently returned. It was a lot of fun to play with. I might have to buy my own if I can save up $400. It’s hard, being unemployed and all, but it’s so worth it. :cool:

Photo: In the Fog

In the Fog — foggy traffic lights in black and white

This is what it feels like to live in the fog all the time. Took this of some green traffic lights at night. How did I get the fog? I blew on the lens, and the condensation made the photo turn out like this, no fog required.

I added a ton of contrast, burned in the sides, and switched to black and white. The added contrast amplified the noise considerably, so this is a noisy image. It works because of the lack of color, though.
