Trip Flare


As it is an overcast day out in the World, and I’m rebuilding the PC and staring at the washing machine (positive healing vibes, positive healing vibes), I dug out the newly arrived Hoya R72 infra-red filter, and set up some wargames figures on the coffee-table. A halogen table-lamp is close-by the right-hand side of the scene, the camera is set to a 15 second exposure at f/5.6 and ISO 200. After some fuzzy shots, I remember to switch off the automatic focus. Not great, but a start.

Best to get these basic mistakes out of the way early…whilst no-one’s around, and in the warmth while supping a cup of coffee.
