Canon on Lomo Action!

Canon on Lomo Action!
Here’s my lovely new Canon 580EXII Speedlite dwarfing a Lomo LC-A. The Speedlite was triggered by a cable improvised with croc-clips (you can see it in the bottom right). The light then triggered a Lumopro flash off to the right. The Canon was dialed down to 1/128th and the Lumopro to 1/64th.

Matt as The Urban Farmer

Matt as The Urban Farmer
Garage Studios’ own Matt was combined tutor and model for the recent Flash Lighting course I attended. I’d read a fair bit on lighting theory and it was very handy to put the theory into practice with the help of an experienced person. We weren’t able to take many photos outside because it was very cold indeed, which is a shame because there were some nice dramatic clouds around. This was taken with a Canon 580EXII Speedlite bounced off a wall to the right. I so enjoyed using the Canon flash that I went and bought myself one.

At the flickr meet I was experimenting with my bodycap pinhole. It’s fairly tele and it seems that closer things are better focused. This is a 1 second exposure at iso 3200 with the on camera flash. Works quite well as long as the subject is close enough.

The results of this years conservatory tomatoes. They’re actually quite tasty if a bit over ripe. This is a half second exposure, camera on tripod with an undiffused flash fired by hand from a distance of about a meter.

Primes!
I got an m42 thread to Canon EF adaptor and have since been collecting nice old primes. This was a 1 second exposure lit with two flashes: the one on the camera and another kind of above and pointing behind the lenses to make sure you can see the lovely rug backdrop through them.

No doubt andyxr will upload the results of this endeavour at some point. They looked fantastic on his camera. The models are all holding remote controlled flashes with gels on.
