Pics from Last Week

This was my second attempt at photographing fireflies. Basically, it involves setting the camera on the tripod, taking lots of 5-second exposures, then layering the ones with fireflies together in Photoshop using the Brighten blend mode. I’m a lot happier with this round than my first attempt. Next up: finding a better setting and background, and maybe trying a wider lens.


We went to the local fair last week. The sunlight was pretty harsh (and hot!), but I liked how a few of my shots turned out.
