Picture of the week - This photo upsets me

No comments

This photo upsets me. I did not have a tripod with me when I made it, so I had to set the exposure really carefully. After editing the RAW picture I was really pleased to see that the inside of the shop was well exposed. And then I noticed that I had not been standing right in front of the shop, so the lanterns were off in relation to the signs behind it. By then I had already left JianShui and there was no way to return and retake the picture. It could have been perfect.

Will I ever make it off the island again? Who knows? Anyway, here is a picture I took in Kunming, China. In October 2018. It was 25°C.

It's a collage...

Picture of the week - Fun with flash

No comments
I was in my friends place near Blönduós and we were having fancy drinks. It was quite dark inside and I had no tripod and only my built in flash without diffuser, so I held the palm of my hand in front of the flash instead and used tungsten setting for white balance and viola:

So after I went home I tried several settings with my glasses on the nightstand. First without flash:

Then with flash (and set white balance to flash, too):

Then I used my hand and still flash light balance, as you see the white balance is totally off:

So I set white balance to tungsten:

Then I took a picture of my hand (with flash and flash white balance) and used that to do custom light balance:

Lastly I remembered I have a phone (which is silver), so I just used this as a diffuser (with flash white balance):
