Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 1st June 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of days to a walk around the neighborhood.

I was struck by the various shades of green of the newly opened Maple leaves. However, it was a grey, overcast day so rather than blue sky showing through the gaps in the branches it was featureless grey. So I decided to try a monochrome conversion using a red filter which increased the contrast between the various shades of green.

I rather like the way the leaves have become an almost abstract pattern with the branches giving a clue to what you’re looking at.

CFFC: Glasses, Cups or Saucers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Glasses, Cups or Saucers.

Having been on a bit of a table top photography kick recently this was a good challenge for more messing around with unusual viewpoints and adapted lenses.

I thought the pattern of rings on this drinking glass was interesting.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Nature as Art

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Nature as Art prompt.

As soon as I read the prompt I had several ideas for the challenge. I decided that any effects in photos I selected had to be done in camera, no heavy editing to get an effect. I also decided that all the photos had to be square, although I can’t really explain that decision.

The centre of a Coneflower. A mix of subject and camera movement coupled with very thin depth of field from the high magnification macro lens.

Autumn tree trunks. Subject isolation with a telephoto lens turns the tree trunks into a pattern.

October Squares: Lines of Tree Trunks

 

Isolating a small section of a sunrise with a telephoto lens turns it into a graphic image.

Motion blurred tree trunks. An experiment with moving the camera vertically during exposure.

Shadows of tree trunks across the snow. A straight forward shot with the fallen branch close to following the rule of thirds.

January Squares: Sidelight

 

Cloud movement over Colpoy’s Bay. A 60 second exposure at dawn allows the clouds to move across the sky and makes the water appear calm.

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.
