Imaginando que lo pequeño es grande y lo grande es pequeño
Imaginando que lo pequeño es grande y lo grande es pequeño - Exposición múltiple en cámara(sin photoshop), compuesta en esta ocasión por tres imágenes tomadas por separado, a diferentes distancias focales e iluminada con linterna cálida. Lo que he intentado en esta imagen es hacer que lo pequeño parezca grande y viceversa, para ello, la luna redimensiona la escena y reafirma la sensación de noche y la piña quiere simular una cordillera de una montaña donde hay una seta gigante con luz propia que ilumina su entorno.

Van Helsing
Van Helsing - Esta toma ha sido realizada en la capilla de San Cosme de Irixoa (A Coruña). El equipo utilizado ha sido un cuerpo Nikon D7100 con lente Samyang 14mm f2.8, un filtro ND Hitech de 7 pasos, un foco led Yongnuo YN160III, dos linternas minimaglite, una antorcha de kevlar y una cuerda de kevlar. Lo primero que hicimos fue colocar el foco led para dar luz a la fachada principal de la capilla con sus leds fríos sin contaminar al modelo. Decidimos utilizar un balance de blancos de 5000K para conseguir unos tonos blancos en la fachada principal de la capilla pero en el cielo y en lo que ilumináramos con las minimaglite tendríamos unos tonos cálidos para potenciar el dramatismo de la escena. Disparamos en modo bulb a f22 e ISO de 1600 con el filtro ND delante del objetivo y pintamos con la antorcha de kevlar la línea desde la mano del modelo hasta la puerta de la capilla y con la cuerda de kevlar pintamos la entrada de la capilla. Apagamos la cuerda y la antorcha para retirar el filtro ND y cambiar el diafragma manualmente a f2.8 y exponer 30 segundos más. Durante esos 30 segundos la escena cogería luz ambiente (antes la cámara solo pudo captar el fuego) y nosotros cogimos las minimaglite para iluminar al modelo, dar un ligero toque a la fachada de la capilla que quedaba en sombra para levantar los negros, al césped y a la copa del árbol. El tiempo de exposición final fue de 102 segundos.
