Painting with the light 2012

Well after a few days about thinking how to do it, I started taking some picture at night painting some details with lights, however because I don't have an external flash (is the next in the wish list) I used a normal torch for heavy duty use with 16 leds in a couple af shots I used a normal bulb torch but I was not happy at all about the colour of the light (yellow), the colour of the light with the led one is light blue and I have to say that I really liked the effect that was providing, I never did night photography painting with light so these few shots are the best I got for the moment, is not an easy job and require a lot of time testing how the light will be captured by the camera
my favourite picture in these collection is the one with the piece of milky way above a tree it let me breathless..

Brisbane 2012

After being in Gold Coast and Byron Bay, I returned to Brisbane because it was always raining there and I couldn't take my camera out of the hostel, I love Brisbane is an awesome city, skycrapers, citybeach and I mean city beach! a real beach in front of the city! friendly people and lots of backpackers, you can take the city cat that is like a bus traveling on the river and it's only 30km from the beach,lots of entertainment like free museums, botanical gardens and lots of parks around, is a really green city! I never walk around like I did in this days, let's post some pictures!

One of the victims of the digital camera era is the kodachome film from kodak,this supervivid color sliding film and also the first color film in the world in 1935 took in his 75 years the best pictures around the world as afghan girl photo, the video following is a documentary of xander robin about this wonderful film that kodak put down because the process to obtain the picture from the film was too long and too expensive, the last lab processing the last film roll in the world the 30th dec 2010 was dwayne's photo, lab that was supported in the last years directly by kodak,the last roll produced was used by Steve McCurry in his last roll travel around the world in 36 pictures
