The Abyss

August 28, 2011

Two weeks ago my wife, kids and a couple of friends rented a lovely converted barn in Kent. This made a nice base from which to visit the local area where I finally got to visit Dungeness and, maybe more importantly provided me with no light pollution at night, which allowed me to get involved in some interesting photography. ๐Ÿ™‚ I get pretty bored taking photographs of scenery etc… what’s always been my favourite genre for photography is experimentation, playing with speed, playing with lights, creating an interesting setup for a photograph and it’s great to finally get back into doing these things.

Before I went away I bought a few fairy lights and the photo below was done using them. I got a lazy susan, arranged the lights roughly on the thing, focused, spun and clicked a long exposure (of around 5 seconds).

Have a great week… ๐Ÿ™‚
