Nice one I thought, I live in the UK and it's half way through spring...there should be some nice misty/foggy landscapes to have a go with ! Errrr nope, the weather this week has been changing between unseasonably warm days to the more usual,
This mixed with being on the road for work at 6am meant this idea was abandoned.
So I whilst trying to come up with another idea I was killing the time by cleaning and checking over some of my gear, It was then that I noted the shutter actuation count on my 400D. This camera was gifted to me by my friend Richard, who had recently upgraded and kindly passed this disused body to me. I'm not sure how much he used it, but I have a fair idea that most of the 32,597 shot's it's taken have been in my hands :-) So I had the idea of making a shot where this camera had been used so heavily that it was smouldering hot, and the results are below.
This was a simple setup using two flash units, and a incense stick, I will post a setup shot at some point. I think it turned out OK, but once again with it being SooC I wish I'd had cleaned the dust off the glass :-/ and there's a little too much light on the right side of the camera that is blowing the highlights.. Overall though I'm pleased, I like how the smoke looks like it's coming from the battery grip. Check out the work from the other chaps, despite appearances they are quite intelligent and often show remarkable levels of creativity for primates :-P
