We arrived for a short break in Torquay on August 9th 2015.
The Super Weekend the South West’s Premier Super car Showcase was in full swing.
So i got me kit out, this is what i shot.
Yesterday i conducted an photographic experiment.
I got a small piece of Quartz Crystal (a small cluster) and a Class III Green Laser pointer.
I made a make shift tripod to hold the Laser in position and taped the Laser button so it was permanently on. I then focused the lasers light on to the quartz. I connected my Canon 1DS Mk2 to a tripod and started shooting.
I took about 30 shots in various modes, with some very interesting results.
This photograph stuck out, it’s quite phallic in it’s shape but also original.
The shot was taken with a Canon 1DS mk2 using 100mm EF Macro lens, Exposure time was 6.4 secs at f18 ISO 400 with no flash.
These shots were taken in my new ford focus(2015). I was experimenting with the focus points on my Canon camera. Sadly when zoomed in, the photograph shows a degree of visble dust, the photo displays well at smaller resolutions.

This shot was taken with a Motorola G Camera Phone (2nd generation).
The shot was taken (believe it or not…), on a grubby toilet wall in a motorway service station on the A1 in the UK. I edited the photograph in Lightroom and the photo came alive. An example of creating something from nothing. If you have a similar story with an accompanying photograph, we would love to share it with our visitors.
