Last week I took a bus tour of London to see some sites, and this is what came out of it. Music is by fyrii. Shot on a Canon T1i. Edited with Final Cut Pro.

This photograph was shot on a Canon T1i. The aperture was set to 8 and the shutter was open for about 25 seconds.
It would be helpful if anyone had any tips on reducing grain and making the stars appear more clear. It’s difficult when you look through the lens and all you see is black.
No this isn’t a commercial for Canon.
The original music was recorded in GarageBand through a Tascam mixer with a Takamine acoustic guitar. It was edited with Final Cut Pro in the H.264 codec (unfortunately the playback isn’t very smooth). And I do need a tripod.
For at least a year I have be meaning to put together a camera obscura. Finally, today, I busted out the black garbage bags and masking tape.
I covered one of two windows with a sheet. I used four garbage bags (two layers) to cover the window where my light source was coming from. Masking tape was used to bind everything together and cover up any cracks of light.
Not wanting to cut into the garbage bags and waste the plastic, I took a toilet paper tube and mounted it between the top frame of plastic and the bottom frame of plastic.
A manila envelope also helped me out a bit.
Now you will have to turn your head up side down, or your computer.
A white sheet or having white walls would have definitely helped!
This erie looking one is of melting snow on the ground.
That’s it for now! Of course, there will be more to come. Hopefully with white walls.
