A bit of fun...

It's been a while since I got my digital gear out just to have a play. I haven't forgotten how much fun it can be but I have been bogged down with school, the new job, the tides, the phase of the moon and the alignment of the planets.

I spoke to one of my class mates today and we are going to go to the school studio tomorrow and see what we can come up with when we use a couple of flash units and some new Nikon gear. She has a new D300 and I have a 70-200 f2.8 VR lens... Maybe we could swap for a little while...?

I saw the flower this morning while walking home from the tram, 2 degrees celcius so I didn't spend too much time on it.

The running man is one of Cinta's collection of artistic ephemera. I thought I would try out a bit of shadow play...

Thought I would try the first two in square format???

And last but not least, my new saxophone... This one took a bit longer and I think I will still need some more practice to get it right. There are so many angles on it that it is a little difficult to get uniformly sharp. Being mainly silver with a black barrel sort of lent itself to the B&W treatment.
