Monochrome Monday

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.

Before the Leaves

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

I thought about some of my walks around the neighborhood over the past couple of months. The first photo I selected worked nicely as a square crop so I decided to go with all square crops.

Camera

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Words that contains two letter A’s prompt.

The first word I thought of was camera and it was an easy word to build a post around.

In the end I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken using various camera settings and techniques that show something that the human eye cannot normally see.

Setting a mirrorless camera to monochrome allows you to see in monochrome through the electronic viewfinder.
