Nighttime Photography with a Flashlight

Nocturnal light painting with a flashlight is a way to make sure that the important subject details are illuminated in the final rendition.

A Grande Shade – Save those coffee thingies!

Most of you probably throw these things away. Found in nearly every coffee joint, they can be useful right when you need them. I keep a few of them in my camera bag just in case.

Dirkon Pinhole Camera

Dirkon – The Paper Pinhole Camera

Personally, I find the HOLE idea, (excuse the pun) absolutely amazing. Pinhole is magical in that it requires no sensor, no mechanical parts and no lens. While it is possible to use a pinhole in place of a lens on a digital camera to take pinhole images, a tiny hole in a simple box with a piece of light sensitive material inside is far more impressive.

This is a poster that I created for the WPPD event.

Breaking the Rules = Discovery

Creativity has very little to do with conformity. Breaking the rules allows us to develop ourselves more creatively. It is how we establish originality.
