Self portrait with My Son

Usually i dont tend to upload photos of myself but this time I will make an exception.

Few days ago my wife, my son and myself had a nice walk in the neighborhood and I decided to use the opportunity to be on the other side of the camera for a change.

I gave my wife my 5D camera with the 16-35 lens and the 580II flash.
The camera was configured to AV, F2.8 and 800 ISO (in order to see the background in these evening hours) with the flash configured for -1/3 exposure (so our faces will have a little more natural look).

This is the outcome (click to enlarge):

The image would have been a little better if my baby would have chosen to smile.
I guess he needs few more months to get used to the flash :-).

Yarkon River @ Night

I walked near the Yarkon River in Tel-Aviv few days ago.

The purpose was photography but eventually I ended up having a drink with a friend …

Before the drink, I succeeded capturing one photograph:


Few days ago I came back from a week in Amsterdam, attending IBC exhibition.
During the exhibition I barely had any free time but I succeeded grabbing the camera and tripod for few hours in one of the evenings.

Starting with a panoramic image of the central train station and part of the canal:

The photograph is a merged of 4 photos. The merger process was quiet easy using the automatic settings of Photoshop CS3 panoramic merger capability.
(in order to understand how far I went, on the left side you can see the green sign – this is the hotel i stayed in)

I mainly walked by the canals, enjoyed the beauty and grabbed some photos:

Tel-Aviv Harbor

Every few weeks I try to grab my camera and simply walk around and photograph. The concept is similar to PhotoWalk but alone ;-)
(To be honest, I didn’t happen since my new baby was born, but the concept remains…)

Few photos from my “PhotoWalk” in Tel-Aviv Harbor:
