This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Week 5 – Pick a Topic from this Photo.
I went with the colours red and green from the list of prompts provided by Cee and then decided to go with photos taken within the past year.
Red anodized knurling on a small aluminium flashlight.
A red section of a sunrise isolated with a telephoto lens.
Red and green leaves in early autumn.
A green fern frond taken with a 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera.
Overlapping green Hosta leaves.
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.
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.
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.
