Smoking (^ ^)

Hihi, here are something I learnt this week (^^).

I was inspired by "Sensitive light" and decided to capture some smoke. Here are my creations :)
For my simplified setting, please see below. Any comments are welcome.

~~~~~~~

Equipment list:
1) Flash (borrowed)
      Name: Canon SpeedLite 580EX
      Setting: M with power=1/2 (Tips from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2d281_HoEQ)
      Purpose: To freeze the smoke and act as a secondary light source at the right

2) Table Lamp
     Purpose: For illumination on the smoke at the left

3) Flash remote trigger
      Name: BlaZZeo MegTrig RF Speedlites Trigger: Receiver and Transmitter
      Setting: set to same channel for receiver and transmitter
      Purpose: To trigger the flash since the location of the flash will not be where the camera is pointing

4) Wide angle lens
      Name: Canon EF 17-35mm F/2.8 USM

5) DSLR Camera (borrowed)
      Name: Canon 7D
      Purpose: Instead of 10D, I used 7D due to its lower noise level. Smoke image needs to be noise free to stay “clean”!
      Setting: F20 (for deeper DOF and prevent overexposured image), 1/160(cos the wireless system does not work fast enough)

6) Pure Black background
         Name: My dress (LOL)

7) Supports
         Name: cans
Purpose: To make sure the flash is similar level as the smoke

8) Black covers
       Purpose: To ensure the flash to directionally shine onto the smoke only instead of illuminating up the surrounding

~~~~~~
Have fun :)

Felt Product - multi-layer pouch for currency storage

It is small pounch for me to keep currencies.
Before I made it, I have many many small purses and pouches. It is tedious to open them up and check which currency I keep in there. Partially, it is also due to my poor short-termed memory :P.

Now, I have a multi-layer pouch to keep notes and coins. The materials are bought from Daiso, except the layering material and blue ribbon that are cut from shopping bags.

伪君子

当人成长的过程中,面罩。 其目的不一定是坏的。善意的谎言是可以原谅。但往往谎言定义的听者不一定与说者有相同的共识。这是谁的错?
听者的角度而言, 说者是错的。在某些情况下, 他是丑陋的伪君子。尤其当他用它来结束一感情。也许这是个误会,也许这是那女的心有不甘。但以天时地利人言,时间的证明,他是不折不扣的伪君子。 

谢他离开! 因为从长远规划, 已经没有他可以利用的价值,所以她自由了。可以去寻找真正的感情。
