Nairobi Night in HDR

This week I got to do two things I have always wanted to do all at the same time. Night Scene and HDR. After hooking up on twitter with couple of other photographers we took to the Kenya Railway headquarters for a shootout. I didn’t manage to hook up with them in time as I was running a little late. By the time I got there It was already dark and some of them had already gotten the shots they wanted. I did a few shots and then joined in on photography discussion which turned out to be what we did most of.

It was already pitch dark and this meant really long exposures glad I had my tripod with me. The railway station is such a scenic location with railway line converging at the horizon and city lights painting the Night sky with vivid colors. I didn’t get enough of the place I plan on returning soon this time to capture the gothic hue and texture of the wrecked trains which are rusting away at the station with a model (on gothic styling) in tow.

The female form

If you are a fun of the female form like me then today`s post might help ease the Monday blues. I did these a while ago while doing some practice on my lighting with mercy (can`t use her regularly as I used to since she`s now on attachment and is only available on Sundays). I posted some of the images from this test shoot on One hard light post.

The background was a seamless backdrop I designed myself (DIY is my domain). I lit the backdrop but noticed that the colors were washing off so I fitted a red filter of my background light and blam! the color was restored. I had to remove a distracting hotspot on the backdrop in post though.

Am thinking of doing two post per week (Photography on Monday and web/design/Illustration on say Thursday) but finding time for one post a week is still an uphill task (I work from 6am to 9pm) maybe this means that I need an assistant!.

Nuff said,Enjoy reading (viewing actually) the rest of the post.

Making of hmurimi studio.

I went though my hard-drive looking for some documentation I had done while creating my studio lighting after receiving a number of email inquiries on my DIY studio (Lighting mostly). The lights are made from PVC pipes,straw-boards,tracing paper, high wattage energy savers and other locally available materials. Make no mistake, just because some of the equipment I use is Jua kali (Home made/DIY) it by no way mean that the product is mediocre. I`ve seen crap photos taken with cutting edge equips.

Going Jua kali was not a matter of preference, but my only option due to financial factors. I have always harboured passion for photography and started learning photography with my P&S camera ( Metering, White balance etc) but after acquiring a DSLR lighting was a necessity I couldn’t do without.

To set up this studio, meant I had to buy tools like hammers,saws,pliers,brushes pliers etc ( A good thing, just in case photography/design doesn’t work I could always turn into carpentry or plumbing ) I also had to do a crash course ( googling) on light and electricity (You just don’t mess with electricity willy nilly unless of cause you are on a death wish).

Before I embark on any project that is out of my profession, I alway carry out intensive research, every profession goes by some basic principles (layman approach to some professions like electrical installation could kill ya).

It doesn’t take architectural classes to build a structure this simple Ingenuity,logic,adherence to some basic rules and passion should suffice. I started off with measurements, symmetry is not only a requirement in aesthetics but is also essential in stability of the structure.
