“And I say unto you, squander not your time in the gaming houses and the bars. Beware the Devil’s Dice my friend, and their firey tails from Hell. Resist their ivory temptation, for you can never win at Satan’s Chance. I stand before you and declare: the Devil’s work is everywhere.” (A. Lietold, 1796-1842)

Originally from Manchester, UK, now living in Warsaw, Poland and Tarifa, Spain, but also travelling frequently.

I currently use a Nikon D300 with Sigma lenses (18-250, 150-500, 105) and, for travel, a Sony NEX-7 with Sony (18-55, 55-210) and Tamron (18-200) lenses.

Enough of the boring stuff… on with the show.

    You know I love these!! Excellent!

  • Thanks Pamela! It’s all going very slowly as I have to reprocess everything – my workflow has been modified significantly recently and so anything more than a few weeks old needs redoing. And of course the quality of some of my older shots is quite low compared with what comes out of the D300.

    Very nicely captured. I think this is what is called 2nd curtain flash.
    Hope I am right. Excellent in any case.

  • Exactly so – “second curtain” or “rear curtain”. Many thanks.

  • Many thanks, Sheila. This was the first time I had worked with rear curtain flash and I developed the idea over a couple of days. Seeing this image featured is a lovely surprise!
