Images of Canberra – Red sky over Civic

By johnboy - 13 December 2006 28

Danman has been out and about over the weekend with his tripod and given us a week’s worth of images.

He asked for the following words to accompany this one:

While the pre apocalyptic city jumped to its own heartbeat – all it has now is memories.
If you stand quietly you can hear the murmurs – the faint recollection of happier times.
If you listen hard, every picture has its own story to tell.

Canberra is so crying out to be a sci fi movie.

RG get a tripod – set that puppy on f2.8 at 36mm iso 100 – open the shutter for 8 seconds and see what happens.

Unfortunately 8 seconds is max – True slr’s meter up to 30 seconds – but also have a bulb setting – that means one press to open the shutter – press again to close – can be as short or as long as you like (depending on battery life etc). 35mm mechanical cameras (SLR’s) can go for hours

Yep, reread and saw it.

I wonder what I could get out of my FZ-5…..

Randomgit – read my post up from this.
Also – camera was white balanced for flouro so maybe this helped – but a lot of my shots that nite had the apocalyptic red sky – and no tall were white balanced to flouro – most were on auto and ambient light was used.

I see it now *shrug* effing firefox.

Frikking top shot. Did you filter it?

Great shot – pity about that scuzzy looking willow weed though…

Danman 12:30 pm 13 Dec 06

oh and D70 focussed at 17mm f5.6 for 30 seconds for those tech heads.

Danman 12:27 pm 13 Dec 06

Only slight red gel over sun gun at base of the tree.

The sky was natural/ambient light with some smoke I am guessing.

As I listen to this picture, it is telling me that my tablet PC could do with a refresh.

There must be a filter or something in there – it’s a terrific photo.

Spectra 11:43 am 13 Dec 06
