To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 180 - Christmas theme (contd.)

I finally managed the flash with some success.  However, I still fail to understand why it doesn't work on full power, even when the batteries are freshly charged.  I tried different set-ups, but found that holding the flash right over the camera worked best.

Today's experiment was more on the light, rather than on the composition; I somehow threw a few things together and focussed more on the lighting.  Had a long day at work, visiting with a friend, and then another couple of hours of work for my project submission tomorrow.  I will have to compose myself first, before I can compose a shot.  :(

This one had the overhead light on, and I flashed the white background.

This one is with only the flash held above camera.
