This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down.
I briefly considered going with photos of Woodpeckers and Nuthatches feeding upside down but thought that was rather obvious. Plus they’re doing what comes naturally, there is no upside down to them.
Then I thought about some of the photos where there’s a reflection on water that makes you wonder if the photo is the right way up. At which point I started rotating some photos 180 degrees.
These Black Eyed Susan’s look a little odd.
This coloured section of sidewalk looks slightly strange. It makes me think it’s a ceiling.
This Colpoy’s Bay sunrise looks less odd.
Finally, these variegated Hosta leaves look slightly odd.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Focus.
As I have mentioned in some previous posts, I have been making some changes to the equipment I carry when out and about shooting personal work. I have put together a set of three small, manual focus primes and a small mirrorless camera body.
The kit fits in a small camera bag which weighs next to nothing compared to my normal shoulder bag. It’s a lot easier on the shoulder I injured in early spring.
I’m really enjoying getting back to basics with a kit similar to the gear I used as a photography student all those years ago.
Three shots of flowers on the South Bruce Peninsula taken when testing each of the manual focus primes that make up my back to basics kit.
The first was taken with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open.
The second shot is taken with a Samyang 12mm f/2 lens wide open.
The third shot was taken with the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open.
