Bitchy spam

Since when did spam become so bitchy? Take this “comment” for instance:

The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt[sic] disappoint me as much as this. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I basically thought youd[sic] have some thing intriguing to say. All I hear is actually a bunch of whining about some thing[sic] that you simply could fix for those who werent[sic] too busy looking for attention.

Followed by a link trying to sell you some crappy imitation shoes, or whatever.

On all my blogs I moderate the comments that make it through the spam filters, but even if it were a genuine comment, who would leave a bitchy comment like this up on a blog?

Doing some still life photography.

As winter drags on and I wanted to explore still life photography a bit more, I bought some tulips the other day and set up my flash unit as I had done before. I had some trouble figuring out the correct exposure as a small flower against a dark background is easily over exposed but I found a cheap Sekonic Flashmate L-308S which worked wonders.

See the schematic of the lighting I used below:

Thanks to Kevin Kertz for his Lighting Setup PSD file.

This is the gear I used:

Camera: Pentax 645NII
Lens: Pentax 645 A 150mm f/3.5 with Pentax Auto Extension Tube-A #1 (14mm)
Flash: Pentax AF-360FGZ with a shoot-through umbrella but used inversed
Reflector: Expro RF-154 (using the white side)
Film: ADOX CHS 100 ART exposed at EI 200.

These are the still lifes I took over a period of a week:
