Mmm I love the Bokeh even though it is nice and subtle.
Wish that hand wasn't there in the background
apparently it's a middle finger as well
i'd like to go out with friends exploring more but the opportunities never arise round here really.
I don't think I'll be posting a photo today. I lost a close friend, the one I posted picture up of not that long ago. I have no motivation for photography. The news has destroyed me and my family. Sorry.
Its not a ring flash, it's a square box with a cut out in the middle with fairy lights taped all round it.
heres what it looked like
Thanks man, it was out of focus and i only took one so i couldn't really use it. I plan to use the fairy lights for photos in future though.
Decided to change my 365 last minute, i know its a self portrait but meh its something different. Exploring negative space

The out of focusness on the christmas lights pic works though.
Went out to take photos out in the park. Took some decent photos, though I had to delete a handful of them since a woman asked me to stop taking photos of her and her children (which is understandable, i'd be uncomfortable with some random guy taking photos of my child). I offered to delete the photos of her and her family to avoid any problems. Though her dad (I'm assuming it's her dad) kept mad dogging me. Anyways, three of the shots I liked.

EDIT: I also really liked the old lady's jacket, so I got a closer shot of it.

To avoid situations like that it's always best to confront the person before you start taking photos. I'll often go up to people and just tell them that I am working on a photography portfolio and if they wouldn't mind me taking a few photos. Then keep a few model release papers with you to prevent any legal issues.
Just a bit of experimenting.
The neighbours probably thought I was a mad man, balancing shoes on boxes on a table, using deck chairs as decoy subjects on the lawn and across the road and putting a flattened cardboard box in the garden so the tripod didn't sink in soft sand.
Didn't bother with any PP other than the obvious shoes bit.
Took more photo's of my cat, such a good model isn't she!!
Also took pictures of the moon, tried to get some good in focus ones but its hella hard to focus on something 250,000 miles away with a 25 year old 100-200mm lense so I chose to upload this:
