in between spending way too much time here, and avoiding the noon sun, I did manage to do some today

2018. , .
Just a composition exploration shot before I got out the infrared filter and tripod. (those will be edited when I get home to my work station - I can't see colors on my travel laptop screen. This was edited by looking at the histogram)

Sky wasn't the best last night so improvised a quick with the few micron pens I had with me instead. :)

What was my camera doing you ask?

Well... ok see it has been 1 year since I bought my sony a6000, and apparently that's how long it takes before I try to do things with equipment that you should not be capable of doing...

By the way, if you notice how noisy this is... you can use stacking to reduce noise, and increase resolution a little bit... and that ties back to how I ran out of SD card space. XD

Its the second day of my seaside vacation and I ran out of SD card space.

But how you say?

...current state of things

(And technically - is there a way to tell open camera to sharpen less by the way? :mastohi: )

For the longest time I didn't consider myself a photographer but an artist that uses photography as one of her primary materials, because sometimes the way I use photography disregards most basic rules of the medium.

as the moon just begins to move out of shadow.

This image is actually a stack of 10 images, that's what it took to get to this level zoom from the 135mm lens on crop sensor raws.

- the "not much of a backlog and more straight from the oven" edition.

...because is having an acute case of a clear sky by some miracle.

Sony a6000, Samyang 135mm F.2.0 Istanbul

Obviously a very detail crop.

...and done.
This took a lot longer than a drawing this size had any business taking, but it came out better than I expected it to be.

and and as this was edited in in as usual.

piece is so close to being done...

I think part of the challenge is that after the hiccups on last 2 works, I am a bit hesitant to draw, self-conscious which translates to this going very slow.

Well... and that the number of layers. *doesn't want to think to closely about marker ink spent on this one*

When doing , there is expectation for things to look different, but I wasn't expecting all that glittering shine on an ordinary tomato flower of all things.

Also F1.4 plus a macro filter makes for some absurdly shallow depth of field. Adding the infrared filter on top, this was tricky to photograph. XD

Some progress with the painting. Not nearly enough time spent in last 2 days but still got a solid 4-5 hours in today.

Last few attemps didn't go well, but sometimes it is about learning from mistakes: literally.

Well, we'll see if I learned enough. :)

What do you do with paper that turns out not to be acid free?

Color swatches!

Having to memorize how to create a color or texture is not fun. These will help.

I am also going to try to get better at using open camera.

tiny piece done. I actually finished it last night but hard to photograph it in the middle of night...

And now I REALLY need to go shop for markers. :D

To take a break from larger projects and everything else happening this week, I started a tiny drawing. They don't look much in this stage but here it is.

Sometimes a photograph wants to be 2 different things. I had a very clear vision of the story I wanted to tell with this picture and larger series, so that crop ended up being what it is. However, in this case, it does break my heart a little because the original is a very powerful photo in itself. So here it is, for posterity. ;)

(oh.. the cost of this photo was a 4-day long headache, and it was the last photo taken before retreating indoors.)

Istanbul being in a ominous mood. Another one of the thunderstorms from last year. This one I actually waited inside until it was a bit far away.
