Creativity in the Time of Covid

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Creativity in the Time of Covid prompt.

I decided to keep it simple and go with a small selection of photos taken during my time in lockdown.

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Mix Play with Everyday
Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. I used the live composite setting on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. All my sunrise and sunset locations were closed so I set up in a gap in the trees around the yard.
Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky on the South Bruce Peninsula. I was going for regular walks around the neighborhood. Sometimes the sky seemed deeper blue than normal. Possibly due to the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
Wordless Wednesday: 15th April 2020
Close up of a Pine cone. I set up a table top studio and photographed things that I had picked up on my walks around the neighborhood.
Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge: Close ups or macros
Variegated Hosta leaves in monochrome. I experimented with setting my mirrorless Olympus camera to monochrome.

A group of Coneflowers

Continuing my project photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses.

This group of Coneflowers (also known as Echinacea) was photographed with the Kamlan 50mm lens wide open at f/1.1.

A group of backlit Maple leaves

Some backlit Maple leaves and another of my tests using various lenses to photograph flowers and plants. This group of leaves were a regular test subject in the spring and summer.

In this case I was using the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.

Clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay

I went down to Colpoy’s Bay 45 minutes before sunrise yesterday morning.

This is a 3 minute exposure of the clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. Taken using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. The base exposure was 1 second with a further 179 exposures of 1 second composited in the camera to record the movement of the clouds.

I suppose a Live Composite image is similar to a Collage which is the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt this week.
