Lights and Shadows... see hereunder for more details:

Study about lights and shadows. I wasn't in the mood for night outdoors photography, so there was no other solution than being creative at home. Daily objects can be transformed into highly interesting photography subjects. For this picture I used a zoom-in technique during 2.5 sec. exposure to give the impression of movement of the object itself and its shadows. Edited with Nik filters in Photoshop to give an ancient camera look and to add a bit more drama to it. Comments are welcomed!

Canon 5dMarkIII, Canon lense 24-105mm, from 24 to 105mm in one shot, f/13, ISO 100, speed: long exposure: 2.5 sec.


11/365 Challenge by Carolina Negel _Architectural Photography

Храм Спаса на Крови (Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood), when photography is forbidden, pictures taste much better ;), Saint Petersburg, Russia

Храм Спаса на Крови (Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood) is one of the marvels of Saint Petersburg. Photography is quite tricky inside the building, but I somehow managed to make a full series on my tripod before I was ordered to stop. Here is an image of the Christ Pantocrator, under the central dome, the last one I took (without my tripod this time, on a  very low shutter speed)- I like the way light comes down from the windows above. It was taken in the early hours, after the morning service, perfect light and atmosphere inside.

Technicalities: Canon 5d mak III, Lenses: Canon Tilt & Shift 17mm, 1/30, aperture: f8, ISO:800
