Do these images cool you off?

The long exposure (which captures the dreamy water) requires VERY low ISO, Very tiny aperture (F/22), AND a 4x neutral density filter.  Absent any one of these elements, and the shot would be way over-exposed.   The frozen droplet stuff uses the very fastest shutter speed and very high ISO, else things would be UNDER exposed.

It was HOT out there…

A Firefly’s Life by Christine Lavin from christine lavin on Vimeo.

I am a longtime fan of Christine Lavin (and FB friend).  When I saw her recent firefly video, I posted one of my firefly images to her wall (for fun).  She generously re-edited her work and cut-in some of my pics – COOL!
