First Post

This is hopefully the start of an art journal of sorts for me, more to keep me working on my art than anything. Hopefully having a place of my own to post it will keep me inspired to try new things and go further than I would otherwise.

Hopefully there will be some of all that I do eventually posted on here, so you will see some photos, drawings, sketches (both CG and traditional), paintings, and whatever else I seem to be inspired to create on occasion.

That's about all, but I'll start off with one of my more recent pictures that I've taken.

Taken at home in a rather impromptu studio setup, lighting was provided by one 500 watt worklight, and the black background was Ally holding up a piece of black fabric. The subject is a stick of incense, in case you were wondering. The image was not quite what I wanted, but having to illuminate the smoke without the light illuminating the background without a set of barndoors was a little difficult ... ^^;
Still, turned out rather well, except for the slightly out of focus stick of incense, but at least the smoke is clear.
The only post-work done was a little bit of a burn to remove a bit of flare that was present on the left side of the image, since the light was facing almost directly towards the lens to keep it off the background.

Camera: Pentax *ist DL2
Lens: Sigma 28-105mm at ~105mm
