Shot at Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, CA, May 8.
An impromptu gig by my friends Guilded Splinters.
The foot, beer, and wah-wah pedal belong to Kenny Shick.
I’m kind of a sucker for self-portraits.
I even love those cheesy sexy-teen-girl-self-shooting-in-filthy-bathroom-mirror ones; the more awkward, the better.
Here’s an experiment with odd available lighting; a blue compact florescent ‘party bulb’ i had laying around since Xmas. I had the thing in a 6 foot tall brass torchiere lamp, so I wound up holding the light in one hand and working the the camera in the other. Awkward, particularly since it’s a manual (very very manual) lens.
Focus isn’t all I desired but what the hell, I look like some blue satanic lord or something – about to sacrifice several virgins, willing or unwilling (I prefer unwilling, if it’s all the same to you).
Camera: Lumix dcm-g2
Lens: slr magic ‘toy’ lens (26mm, �1.4)
Light: Blue Party Bulb
This was really just a test of the new version (v2.0) of Nik Silver EFEX Pro plugin, but it came out pretty well.
Camera Panasonic DMC-G2
Lens Lumix G Vario 45-200mm
Exposure 0.006 sec (1/160)
Focal Length 189 mm
ISO Speed 100
(my friend Deborah describe Elphie as my muse. She’s no muse. She’s just a captive I can easily use at whim B^) )
I took this the other night, one of a series of shots I took without looking at what I was shooting. Most of the set were throwaways, but this one, I like.
Shot with 20 mm f/1.7 ‘pancake’ lens, iso 100, with built-in flash dialed down to its lowest intensity.
Yes, I was entirely naked taking these. No, you can’t see the rest of them. *
Taken recently at Hakone Gardens.
Lens: Lumix 20mm f1.7 ASPH “pancake”
No color correction, this one just came out looking b&w.
