I fell in love with the colours of Shanghai. Next time I’ll take a tripod… and a 4×5…

We hit a funny time of the season where there were thunder storms rolling across the dessert centre. The rain clouds followed us from Darwin and stopped in Alice Springs as we headed south to Melbourne. The middle section of the photos is at The Devils Marbles, almost in the dead centre of the Northern Territory…

Startrails on transparency

4 hour exposure focussed on the South Celestial Pole (the earth spins an on axis, if you photograph this point you get the circular motion). Taken on 35mm, 100 iso transparency film with an old FM2 and 50mm lens and the tree painted with torch light (I think the scan is a little dodgy). How to find the SCP and photograph your own star trails…

I took these while on holidays with some Thai friends on 3200 film pretty much guessing the exposure the whole time with the changing lights and moving people. These are the ones that turned out reasonable. I remember talking with my Thai friends saying how it wasn’t fair that these girls were putting us to shame in the looks department. So gorgeous!

Scanning light photography or scanning photomacrography

This technique solves the depth of field problems that arise due to the nature of macrography. It uses a specially designed machine to pass the subject slowly through a slit of light. The lens is focussed on this plane of light giving you a full depth of field. Here is some hugely informative information on this technique and how to construct your own rig (it’s everything you need to know)… http://www.kazilek.com/pages/slp.htm. I took this at university on 4×5 black and white neg. The flowers moved a little during the scanning process which is why they are a little soft in some places… They were probably about as big as a fingernail…
