Letter: Of the Nightfall

To Elizabeth, Good Health!

I am cautious of animating my shots, moving from RAW to JPG results in the loss of a lot of information, but the move from RAW to GIF significantly reduces you to a pallet of 256 colors, which can make pictures look very flat. But, i was surprised by the outcome here.

I am experimenting with time-lapse photography to accompany the ballad of the Long Tailor, i will use a couple of whole night time-lapses on the basis of this experiment.



To Marjo Slingerland-Boks

I do not like Fisheye lens in normal photography, because they distort scenes, often for no purpose. 

They can be powerful tools, and are perfect for catching very broad-field night skies. The lens i have used here, courtesy of DJ Dredd, is a Canon Fisheye Zoom EF-8 8-15mm 1:4L USM.



For the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure of being a member of a number artistic communities. I have treasured the companionship and patience of those who have taken time to question and make suggestions (beyond counting) about my attempts. 

This is one of a series of letters (2000-2020) that explores issues from slavery, law reform, deontic logic, plague and legal theory. Some were originally included in a legal text "Lessons" (2019) prepared for teaching legal theory to legal students. Others simply address or reflect on issues of the moment.
