Challenge: Fan (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Hamilton Ontario
Date: Feb 17, 2013
Aperture: 22
ISO: 100
Shutter: bulb
Date Uploaded: Feb 17, 2013

Bulb Pictures. 3 in 1. first white, second orange and third red.

Thank you all for my first Blue Ribon! I never thought I would see the day. Thanks again.

Some people are asking how I did this.
I used the Bulb setting on the camera and left the apperture open. Used a black felt paper in front of the lens as I move the blades a little and change the colour of the light (with a gel) each time (3 times, white, red and orange). I then shut the apperture off. No editing except for crop.

Just gorgeous. I really appreciate your explanation - very creative. I still am not understanding how you changed the color. Was it in the off-camera lighting or is there a setting in your camera (in addition to bulb) that allows you to change the colors? Congratulations on the blue for a knock-out image.

You describe the technique as "Bulb Pictures. 3 in 1. first white, second orange and third red. "

I would love to know how you achieved this photo and was not sure what you meant. I wasn't sure if this was related to the bulb mode on the camera or actual bulbs in a light - sorry if this is a dumb question.

Hello from the Critique Club!

I am really glad I got this image to critique. I did not vote in this challenge, but if I had, I would have given this a 10. I wish I had taken art classes because there is a style here that I can't quite put my finger on. It's not really pop art but that was the first descriptive that came into my head. I'm sure Bear_Music could give it a label but my vocabulary/education is not expansive enough.

At any rate, suffice to say, I love this shot. Clean, simple, industrial. Fills the frame nicely, the colors compliment each other. I am struggling to find something I would change about this. It looks like the voters agree with me.

Congratulations on an excellent shot and blue ribbon.
