CFFC: Green

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green.

I discovered that I had rather a lot of green photos that would work for the challenge. So I decided to go with two very different photos featuring vastly different amounts of green.

One of my abstract trees created by vertically panning the camera during exposure.

Week 33. An impression of trees.

Several evening walks in cloudy, dull weather during week 33 saw me experimenting with deliberate camera movement during exposure. I was panning the camera up or down, trying to get the camera movement to follow the direction of the tree trunks.

I ended up taking quite a few photos over three evenings and discovered that the results were different each time due in part to the strength and quality of the light. The other variable was I used different lenses, apertures and changed the ISO between the evenings. Having had fun experimenting maybe I should make notes and try to analyse the settings I have used already.

The settings for this shot were 1/4 second exposure at f/5.6 and 100 ISO.
