Bunnies and conkers

Conkers and Bunnies

The downside to rain is that I won’t take my camera out. I keep intending to get myself something more portable and less likely to break my heart if it gets hurt but I haven’t got round to that yet. So for me rainy and not so weather friendly days are time to stay inside and get a little creative.

Earlier on this week inspired by the sight of kids throwing sticks into the trees to get conkers I wandered around the park picking up bits and pieces to photograph indoors. I really enjoy the challenge of trying to get the perfect shot on the fly with live action but there is something really fun and exciting about constructing an image in a controlled environment. This is where I really get a chance to get to know my camera and all that it can do. Often when I am out in low light places where I am catching everything live and usually without a flash. I will for the most part just go with the best medium I can capture at the time and know that post shoot processing will require a bit more time. In a controlled setting though it’s about getting it all in the shot and keeping any tweaking to a minimum.

Here I made a put together a little mini studio with some books and card and using the natural light coming through my window then reflected using a mirror to focus on parts of the image played with apature to explore depth of field. I love autumn colours the rich are a real joy to capture and my little pompom bunnies just hanging around in my room finally found something to do. I expect I will be using them again, later on coming across some stop frame software I decided to make a short (very short) animation with them.
