Motion and Movement

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Weird and Wonderful prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before realising that two of them involved motion blur and intentional camera movement.

So I decided to go with a small selection of motion blur and intentional camera movement shots.

One Word Sunday: Count

Intentional camera movement of trees on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Light Painting on the Shoreline

2021: Light Painting the Tree Trunks

Another unplanned experiment with light painting on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently.

For this version I used a small flashlight (torch) to paint the tree trunks in the foreground during the 30 second exposure. Another test of the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens.

This is also a contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere photo challenge.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 23rd August 2021

Monochrome Monday: 23rd August 2021

Cloud over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise yesterday.

Not much colour at sunrise but some interesting cloud formations overhead. So I put the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens on the camera to include as much of the sky as possible with the idea of doing a monochrome conversion.

Light Painting the Foreground

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle

Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn with the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens.

A 30 second exposure allowed for an unplanned experiment with light painting the foreground.

I keep a small flashlight (torch) clipped to the shoulder strap of my various camera bags. Once I arrive at a location I often unclip the flashlight and use it for setting up the camera in the dark.

Yesterday morning I had the flashlight in a pocket when I started the exposure so I used it to light paint the tree trunks and foreground.

I thought the photo was an appropriate contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle prompt.
