The Cave Bat

Another of my kids action figures. This one is Prehistoric Batman. I cant remember the comic series, but in it, the Dark Knight is sent way back in time. They made some action figures, and i took some photos. This was another timed exposure with a maglight.

The Dark Knight

Rebel T1i - f/14 - 25 sec. - ISO 100 - Canon EF-S 18-55mm - 24mm focal length
An action figure of Batman, based of the Arkham City video game. 25second exposure with a mag light. As im sure you can see i held the light directly above the figure for a couple of seconds, then moved the light around the inside of the cape to give it that electric look.

Behind the Lens

My name is jAy. I have been dabbling with cameras for as long as i can remember. Ive never had any formal training. Just what i have picked up along the way. I have read a couple books here and there but mostly i have learned by experimenting. I am and amateur hobbyist i suppose. Its great fun to photograph anything that captures my interest. Most of my pictures are of my son and his toys. Macro photography is great fun. I love the control of the situation and the lighting. I am also a volunteer fire fighter and take my camera with me to every call. As long as there are enough firefighters present i run around and try to capture the controlled chaos of a fire scene.

So not much left to say.  Leave comments, let me know what you like and what you like about it.
