Gabber's Photos

Recommended Posts

It was a parting gift from my cousin in Romania when I left my holiday last year. His uncle received it upon graduating from Army Officers training during the Communist era. It's a ceremonial dagger for use when in full Officers getup. It looks cool as but isn't sharp at all. Strictly for show :)

@Ant; Hmmm, I'd take my dremel to it, but I think I'd just end up trashing it!

 

@stash; Thanks. It took a few shots at different angles and f-stops to get it how I liked it. Lens used was the Sigma 30mm @f1.6 (@minimum focus distance too) with bounced light from an on-camera 580EX II Speedlite.

Been busy lately. Still haven't caved in to the urge to quit the 365 yet. Woohoo.

 

My subject matter still hasn't gotten anymore exciting though =\

I really like how this one turned out. For such a boring photo, I'm surprised I like it so much...

So it's been a while since I've been using dslr gear for anything other than pics of the kids. So I thought 'fuck it', I'm attempting a 365 project again.

Looking at it now I should've fixed the centre air vents and had the wheel a bit straighter. Oh well. It's starting the process again that matters most:p

Nice tones. I wouldn't have noticed the wheel if you hadn't mentioned it. The blacked out windows looks kinda ominous...

 

By the way, Flickr is not showing in my FF browser...weird.

 

EDIT: flickr NOT showing....

Cheers Ant. The black windows was a lazy mans choice of me not bothering to find a nice location for background so night time shot it is :) I also got to use the speedlite and my tripod is at a friends house!

 

Flickr is being a bit funny for me today on the pc (I use FF also).
