WEDNESDAY'S COLORS -- Sprees with a Flash


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Fuji Superia ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/45
Aperture Setting - f-32 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 105mm
Sony HVL-F56 AM Flash on wireless mode
Scanning Method - Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

I went out to see the eagles yesterday, but only saw them flying about for their morning hunt way off in the distance. I did learn that there are three of them, they are here year round, and I can come down to look for them and sit as long as I want. So that’s good to know.

Late last week I received back the photos from my test shots with the light box and the flash. I’m very pleased with the results, and I’m hoping to make the larger light box next week. Way back last February, shortly after I’d started the blog, I posted a photo of some of my favorite candy. That shot was taken out in the sunlight. Quite a comparison between the two.

Wow on the Eagle watching, and hope to see some photos of them here sometime in the future.

The sprees in this shot look less dynamic than the photo from last year.

Quite a difference in the two. Nice work. It'll be interesting to see how the larger light box works out.

Interesting comparison between the two. Although, I actually like the colors in the other shot better, it's obvious that the light box did work quite well for this shot.

I like this shot, but I actually like the other one better. I liked the pattern and the colors contrasting with the deep shadows.

I like the sunlight shot for the vibrant and detailed colors. The light box does give even light and will give you gobs of great pictures.

Ah, yes, these light boxes are going to allow for some cool, smooth modeling experiments . . I see frog portraits a’comin’!

Yummy! That's a good picture. I thought about making one of those boxes for myself. They look pretty easy to make!

MMMMM I love sprees! Everyone I know hates them so I usually end up with a bulk of them around Halloween.

It's been a looooong time since I've had this candy. Just thinking about the tartness makes me shiver. Very colorful shots - I like BOTH versions!

Huge difference, surely this shot has a more studio feel and i like it.

yeah huge difference, the light box is giving you such soft shadows compared to the sunlight

Definitely more of a studio feel here - love the glossiness of the candies in this shot.
