Herman Park 1.6 on Flickr.

Taken All Around Houston Texas on Friday Night, August 14, 2009.

Reflecting Pool at Herman Park. This was a 59 second exposure of the Reflecting pool. I love how the light just POPS!! It is, in my opinion, right at the edge of being over exposed. I used the 18-70mm Kit lens and the wireless shutter release in BULB mode. I use a very low ISO for this long exposure.

Exposure: 59
Aperture: f/5.6

Componon 40mm f/4 on Flickr.

This Componon set up that i have will fit any 55mm front end lens. I cut a hole in a 55mm Lens Cap and and used the threads on the Componon to screw it into the Lens Cap.

This lens is an enlarger. It states that The F4/40mm is for 24mm x 24mm neg. Componons are enlarging lenses.

I have had this little lens for over 20 years and i do not know why i kept it. I did not have a DSLR camera back then.

I used a lens cap and made a hole through the center and placed it on the top of my Sony 18-70mm Lens as well as several other lenses that i have in my possession.

Whit that setup that i am using to hold the lens, you get some Vignetting due to the size difference between the base lens Aperture and the fixed Aperture of this lens.

DSC08787: Star Bright… on Flickr.

When i took this set of photos i looked at the craftsman as doing art and that is how i approached the photographic aspect. I did not look at it as work, which was ease for me because i am not the one doing it. I told this to them as i took the different photos. I looked at it from an artistic perspective.

I thought that the was an amazing photo. The bright star pattern that the welding makes and the highlight of the smoke are very nice. I love hos the gloved hand is softly illuminated showing the texture of the leather glove. I love the sparks shooting off in all directions as he makes his weld. I took this with the other work photos.

Shooting this set of photos was difficult as the lighting in the fabrication facility greatly varies from one location to another, from one worker to another. I feel that the a200 did a very good job in handling the variations in lighting.

48 Minute Night Sky on Flickr.

The photo secession was taken at a place around Lake Sam Rayburn on the road to the new State Fish Hatchery. We like to call it “Little Tunguska” because of the look the environment has. The area has no lights or ambient light from the surrounding area. While were out, we saw 25 of the Leonoid Meteorites in the night sky.

It was taken using the Sony 18-70mm Lens and made using the program called Startrails. I took 64 different photos that were 45 seconds long at ISO800. The focal length was 18mm at f/3.5 from 10.39pm to 11.09pm CST facing the North Western Sky. I used the Opetka Programmable Wired Shutter Release to accomplish this photography set . This photo is the equivalent of a 48 minuet timed exposure.

The purple tint in the upper corners is due to the CCD Sensor heating up for the use of the equipment. There is noting that i can do about that. I am going to try another technique to see if i can eliminate it.
