Monochrome Monday: 29th March 2021

I went for a couple walks around the neighborhood with Dave the Rubber Ducktographer recently.

At one point he was perched up a tree. There was a distracting blue tarpaulin in the background so my plan was to do a selective colour treatment. That allowed me to lose the blue tarpaulin.

Monochrome Monday: 22nd March 2021

My Monochrome Monday post this week is another shot of trees in snow using intentional camera movement.

Taken 10 days ago it will probably be the last of the trees in snow photos as most of the snow has gone after a rapid thaw.

Monochrome Monday: 15th March 2021

Monochrome Monday this week is continuing my experiments with intentional camera movement.

For the past couple of weeks I have been experimenting with intentional camera movement when out for my walks around the neighborhood.

I have been testing a variety of lenses adapted to a couple of mirrorless cameras. In this case I was using my single coated Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm lens from the mid 1970s in conjunction with a polarizing filter from the early 1980s. I was using the polarizing filter as a weak ND filter as I didn’t want to dig my filter kit out of the car.

However, the mix of ancient equipment gave all the photos from the walk a strange colour balance. So I did a monochrome conversion to some of the images.

Grey lichen on tree bark.

An almost monochromatic image to begin with but the monochrome conversion allowed me to bring out the texture a little more.

Monochrome Monday: 15th February 2021

A recent walk around the neighborhood on one of those gray days when it wasn’t actually snowing.

On days like that I usually put a short telephoto lens on the camera with the intention of picking out detail. However, this time I put my fisheye lens on the camera with the intention of looking for interesting compositions of the trees against the sky.

I found the contrast between the evergreen Cedar trees on one side of the frame and the bare (mostly) Maple trees interesting.

Little and Large Drops

My Monochrome Monday post this week is a photo of the icicles that I have been photographing on and off for a couple of weeks.

We had a mild spell in the middle of last week and the icicles started thawing and dripping. I caught some of the drops as they were falling.
