One Word Sunday


This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Time.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before thinking of the intentional camera movement photos I was taking in the winter and that I am still experimenting with.

The technique involves using an exposure time that allows you time to move the camera during the exposure.

Leaf Litter Patterns

Intentional camera movement of leaf litter in woodland.

I had been doing ICM of trees in spring with a wide angle lens and noticed the patterns made by the leaf litter under the trees. So I tried a few ICM images of just the leaf litter.

Some Recent Photos

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle prompt.

I decided to go with a small selection recent photos that I had edited to use in various posts and then never used.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle

Browns and Greens. An intentional camera movement photo of leaf litter and spring greenery.

Monochrome Fence. An old fence shortly after sunrise converted to monochrome using a blue filter to make the fence posts lighter than the surrounding vegetation. It almost looks like a black and white negative.

Dappled Sunlight on the Ivy. Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood testing the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

Streaking Over the Dock. A two minute live composite exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise. With grey skies I was shooting with the intention of doing monochrome conversions.


Ultra Wide ICM

Another of my experiments with intentional camera movement.

This was an experiment using an ultra wide angle lens on the camera. The wide vertical view shows a lot of foreground and I rather like the pattern of the mostly shadowed leaf litter makes. There’s a few well camouflaged Daffodils in the foreground.

Mostly Green

Another intentional camera movement photo, this time of Daylily leaves growing around the base of an Oak tree.

Spring Trees

Spring trees with intentional camera movement.

Real and Not So Real

This is my take on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Real vs Fake prompt.

What I mean by the title of this post is using the camera to produce images that couldn’t be seen by the naked eye.

CFFC: Real vs Fake

Clouds streaking across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. A fake view due to using a 5 minute exposure using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus camera. It’s 300 one second exposures composited in the camera.

CFFC: Real vs Fake

Golden light on the Government Dock. 25 minutes after the first photo was taken a real view of the rising sun illuminating the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula.
