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.
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.
