I know, I know poor form from me with week’s 22 and 23 being published almost simultaneously I’m sorry I’ll try to keep them more evenly spaced in future.

After the relative nightmare of Week 22 I found this week easy to select as the theme was Straight Out of the Camera something my hatred of the droll of post processing approves of greatly. I’ve mentioned before that if I can’t make a picture work with under 30 seconds of post processing (read a quick crop and maybe exposure adjustment) then I don’t use it.

I know that this is laziness and that the greats all work on their images either in the darkroom or digital darkroom, but I’d far rather be out there shooting than fiddling around in front of the computer wondering if this filter or that filter adds more to the image in front of me.

So with no further waffle I present to you my artsy, rusty bicycle.

Straight out of the camera

As you can see I went for the shallow depth of field effect or bokeh created by using my 50mm lens wide open at f2, otherwise it is uncropped and untouched as it come out of my new to me Canon EOS10D.

I promise that over the next couple of days I will collate some of my other shots from the weekend away and share them here or you can alway pop over to my Google+ profile for all the latest.

I’ve also shared some long exposure shots with Nick Exposed and Seeing Spots, I cannot say for sure if Nick and Shannon will be featuring my shots this time as I was late submitting them but stay tuned to these pages and I’ll get them up here regardless.

Until Next time

I thought I’d experiment and do a gallery post of some recent photo’s that I’m proud of.

they were taken with either my Fuji HS20EXR or little compact Canon IXUS 107 and have had minimal editing other than a little cropping.

I shot them in black in white, partly because I love black and white pictures but also because I’m trying to improve my composition and shooting in black and white gives me one less thing to think about when composing a shot.

Please let me know what you think of the pictures
