Some portraits I took for musician Paul Ubana Jones today. The top one is with a single flash and a reflector. The other two are with natural light and a reflector.

I started a photo challenge on Flickr.com – every day for 1 year I need to take a photo and add it to my page. I’m 10 days in and it really is proving to be difficult to get something different every day. From looking at other people that have taken the challenge I can see that they all have dramatically increased their photography skills. So hopefully this time next year I will be taking some bad ass photos
On the 21st October 2012 I will take my last photo and the epic photography adventure will be over. You can follow the progress on my Flickr 365 page here or view the slideshow below.
Below is what I have taken so far: (click the full screen icon in the bottom right corner for best viewing)
Did a quick shoot today in the style of Australian portrait photographer of the year Sue Bryce who I have been working with lately. She uses only natural light and her results are phenomenal. The photos below are lit using 2 pieces of polystyrene. Nice and easy setup and much more reliable than my flashes.

On my last night in New York yesterday I went around and quickly shot some timelapse of the city. Best viewed Full Screen in 720p HD.
I found my hotel room window opened – so bought a suction cup camera holder from B&H Photo and hung my Panasonic Lumix GH2 out the window. Jammed the strap in the window for safety
You can buy one of the cheap mounts here for $28 USD.
The timelapse was done using an inexpensive timelapse remote that I picked up in Hong Kong for $10 (you can find various remotes listed on Ebay here). I shot RAW images (mostly 1 every 3 seconds), processed them in Adobe Lightroom and exported out as full size JPG’s. This meant I could zoom in using After Effects to give a subtle motion effect.
It snowed pretty heavily in Christchurch today and some of the students from St. Bede’s College (across the road from me) made a make shift ramp and did some jumps….
