Atheist Photography Club


Atheist Photography Club

For the most part we photographers see the world as it truly is through the lens of a camera which is what we also strive to do as atheists and skeptics. Photographers of all skill levels welcome.

Patience! ;-)

I ended up using erasers to boost the card up to get them into a better line of sight plus it made them more manoeuvrable  - too often the maglite would collide with the cards and spin them around, knock them over. etc.  So ease of repositioning evolved out of necessity and the erasers were just about the right height!

Yes, I realised not long after I asked - I thought though you'd meant somewhere else on the internet!  Still nice to know we have more than one thing in common.

That is an awesome photo! - Wow!

Anything I take I like goes here:

That's terrific. Very creative. I was aware of the maglite technique, but was not sure how you got the cards to stand on corner.  We know each other from the GayAtheists group on this forum.  Most of my photography is nature-related.  Below is a recent capture of a Great Blue Heron.  If you would like to see more, go to

Hi Marx,

Do we know each other from elsewhere then?

I did take those photos.  Thank you so much!

There are more here

Exif data:
Camera Canon EOS 450D + 1x Maglite(!)
Exposure 15
Aperture f/22.0
Focal Length 18 mm
ISO Speed 100
Exposure Bias 0 EV
White Balance: Incandescent

I did a long exposure (15 seconds) using an unscrewed maglite on a string, twirling it round some jumbo playing cards held upright on blu-tac propped up on erasers. 

I also draped my monitor in a black-dress I bought for £1 at a charity thrift shop.

Closed the door and curtains and voila!

Hey Richard - Marx, here.  It's good to run into you in another forum.  Did you take those photos?  They are amazing!  How did you do that?

What Dread Sorcery is this?

Hey everyone,  I just found this group.  I've been on Atheist Nexus for a while but didn't realize there was a photography club here. I've enjoyed photography most of my life, but have gotten more serious about it recently, after purchasing a decent camera and lens setup.  Looking forward to sharing photos with you.

The iPhone 4 has a pretty good camera. Been going wild with it lately.
