Project Athena - Day 323 (Metal)

Kitchen Utensils

Yesterday, I purchased a book to help me learn some of the features of this camera that are still a mystery to me, "Fujifilm X-E2: Beyond the Manual".  I haven't had much chance to dive into it yet but I spent a few hours today learning all sorts of cool stuff in just the first few chapters.

Long exposures are something I want to master. Tonight is just the beginning of playing with this creative  technique. The colors of this shot were achieved using our essential oil infuser that not only lights up, it changes colors, sending out soft shades of purple, blue, green, yellow, red, and orange. So if you like this picture and want to add it to you wall, I have one in every color. ;)  The infuser also blows a small stream of vapor into the air, so I practiced with some longer shutter speeds to allow the vapor to pool a l bit. I need more steam.

It was a fun shoot and Sophie is a ROCK STAR!
