  1. Hello all! Time for my second post here.. This time something different again then my previous one. Last Sunday a friend and i had no clue what to do.. So we've left somewhat late in the morning to this "little-big" slatemine, that i still had to visit.. It used to be a bigger mine back in the days , but due to flooded levels and collapses that happend during the years, only a small bit of it is still explorable. Complete darkness once you've turned off the flashlight, and only the noise of water falling on the floor. Still some equipment was left inside this mine... i wonder what the flooded levels have left.. It looks like their have been divers in there before.. Spend 3hours and a half inside of the mine.. Once outside we where back in the snow ! Was actually way warmer inside of it then outside Was a bit difficult lighting out all the pictures, but the end result is good afterall Anyway one great piece of history!

  2. Yes Im a geek, with nothing better to do in the late hours of a Wednesday night. If there is anybody out there who like to do light painting then I found a good application on the iPhone App store. It cost around £1.19 and gives you various light settings. The app is funnily enough called Light Painting . Saves you having to carry loads of coloured gels/torches I took these test shots at ISO400 at F8 and approx 10 to 15 secs exposure Light array setting Rainbow setting Dynamic Spot Setting Yes I know it's sad. I do love my iPhone a bit to much
  3. Whilst on a trip to Scotland.me and missy visited this old church.cant find any history on it.but it is defiantly very decayed now.just a "T" shaped main room.and a little extension out back for making tea and a toilet.the light and colours in here were lovely.with some beautiful light coming through.the church floor was littered in bird crap and lots of dead crows.surprisingly not pigeons as there usually is..the tower steps were collapsed in so no getting up there sadly.

  6. It was a morning it was sunny, 25 degrees. I already had a few hours of driving in my arms when I arrive at the castle. I do like my habit, a small tour around the castle to watch the outside architecture and also find an entry. I managed to find an entry that made me go through the underground. In the underground I find a small staircase to go up, it remains only a small door and I'm officialy in the place. My first impression (when i see the big orange staircase) was "there someone who still lives here" The furnitures are in perfect condition, nothing is damaged, the paint of some ceilings begins to flake ... I decides to explore at great speed in case something could happen. 45 minutes later, I'm outside and falls on the neighbors with whom I speak 1H. The neighbors, who are also the guardians of the castle tell me that since 1951 no one lives in the castle, but there is an owner today ... What luck to have been able to explore here. I let you appreciate the intérior. FULL SET on my web site: http://www.msixphotography.com/reports/gallery/chateau-jumanji/#reports Some pictures of this place:

  8. When taking any photo then the first thing you need to do is determine how bright the scene is. This can prove difficult as you don’t have much room for error before the image appears under or over exposed. Some professional photographers will be able to guess how bright the scene is and achieve a well exposed image but this isn’t easy and isn’t accurate. For amateur photographers and also the pro’s that want the photo to look ‘spot-on’ your Dslr has a very handy tool called the light meter. This is a very accurate and simple way to determine the brightness of the scene. Your camera will measure the light (metering) through the lens and reacts to how intense the light is as seen from the camera. There can be problems when there are brighter and much darker parts than others in the scene. This can lead to the light meter on the camera measuring the light incorrectly depending on which part of the scene was illuminating the sensor. Current cameras have improved on this limiting the risk of incorrect metering occurring. They use multi-point light meters, meaning that several parts of the scene are metered at once to give a more accurate exposure and the top range cameras have dozens of metering points to help achieve the perfect metering. You can help the camera to meter your image by selecting the correct metering mode; this will change how much the intensity of light is measured at each point. Using the light meter. There are three points to consider when creating the correct exposure: aperture, exposure/shutter and ISO. This will only apply to ‘M’ (manual) mode as the auto mode will meter the scene as it focuses and will guess each of these settings. When in M mode the light meter shows us that our three settings are correctly set. ISO is usually left at default or low (around 200) The exposure and aperture are set manually by the photographer. When using the ‘A’ mode (Aperture priority) the exposure is automatically set dependant upon the remaining two variables (aperture and ISO) which are manually set. Some camera will also have to option of exposure priority which works the same but the aperture is automatically set instead of exposure. When using these two modes you can check the light meter to ensure that the exposure is correct. When using the light meter you will see something like this: - . . . . 0 . . . . + Each increment shows one third of a ‘stop’ in the light which will be + or – of the central mark (being 0) which indicates the correct amount of light as determined by the light meter. Even with a good camera the light metering can sometimes be wrong, especially with bright light or high contrasts. You could change your metering modes to help this but we can also introduce another approach known as ‘Exposure compensation’. This allows you to communicate with the camera as to how you want the photo to be exposed. By using the exposure compensation you can tell the camera to take the metered exposure and make it brighter or darker by a certain amount. This is good where a bright sky causes a building to become silhouetted. By increasing the exposure compensation then the building will be lit correctly. Some examples of the correct settings to use when shooting different types of photography: Sports photography (moving objects) For this a quick shutter speed is needed to freeze the action so switch your camera to aperture priority. Set the shutter low (1/800sec). The light meter will set the aperture to the correct setting. Take the photo and see how it came out. If under exposed then try to increase your ISO to compensate. Portrait photography (also macro photography) When taking a portrait photo then the focus needs to be on the person and not the surroundings so a shallow DOF (depth of field) is usually used. To set a shallow DOF then you can use aperture priority setting. Set the aperture low (f3.5 – f5.6). The light meter will set the exposure/shutter to the correct setting. Again if the photo is under or over exposed then adjust your ISO to compensate. If the sky is bright but the person isn’t then use exposure compensation. Night photography (tunnel photography) Usually the ambient light is too low to meter and you will notice that your camera cant take the photo. In this case then you should use your camera in manual mode. Set the aperture accordingly (f3.5 will allow a lot of light but f9 will give a better DOF). The exposure setting is really just a guess. You will want to set it quite high and if using a torch then it will only expose the light so once the area is lit then you can just wait in the dark until the exposure is complete. The ISO will need to remain as low as possible but some places just don’t want to light so by increasing the ISO then you may get a better exposed image. Thanks for reading
  9. here are a couple of photos i have taken over 2008/09 from various sites. These have been taken on my sony A200 with a 18-70mm zoom lens with 30s exposure. Let me know what you think. appologie for the watermarking on the final image as this was used previously on another website.
