This sparkler photograph, taken at a wedding in Northern Ireland in December 2013, was a bit of a challenge to achieve. The light in the room was very low, and I had to push my 6D’s ISO way up to 4000 just to be able to hand hold a 1/60th shutter speed with an aperture of f/4. I put the drive in burst mode and hoped for the best.
This was the only usable shot from the burst of 22 images. It was difficult to get the sparkles sharp (and keep the model’s hand still!), but in the end the clarity in the foreground and the delicious, soft bokeh in the background made for a perfect capture. A little color toning and highlight adjustment in Lightroom, and the image was complete.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
The Eagle Bull- Oxendine family is being sued by their child’s school for defamation, because they asked the school to permanently change their offensive and culturally insensitive Thanksgiving curriculum and to honor a two-year scholarship taken from their daughter after they voiced their concern over Native appropriation there.
They’re raising funds to defray mounting legal expenses. Please share this link and donate what you can. If they lose, we all lose. This case has the potential to set dangerous precedent where Natives are effectively gagged from speaking out against appropriation and the abuse of our culture and sacred ways by mainstream society. This is legal conquest. We can’t allow them to play Indian and hide behind judicial robes to do it. Thank you.

HEY PEOPLE, there are not enough backers and not nearly enough money. Please to be donating a little!
I’m sure this has already been done.
I finished this one with plenty of time to spare, so yay, it gets posted early. :D
To reiterate! I’ll have prints of this at NWFF, which is this weekend (June 27-29) at the UBC SUB, in Vancouver, BC. I’m in the main Artist Alley room, at Table 12. It’s in the back, so keep going!
Someone left the cat pipes on.

This is the most useful thing I’ve ever reblogged.
i used to think when people said my cousin twice removed that their cousin must’ve did some fucked up shit to get kicked out of the family twice
When I found this the first thing I thought was “now I can find out how Count Olaf is related to the Baudelaire children.”
