Movement

Two different types of movement recorded with a camera.

Intentional camera movement where the camera is moved during exposure and live composite where the camera record’s movement during exposure.

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Art for Art’s Sake prompt.

Follow Your Bliss

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Follow Your Bliss prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt but I wasn’t happy with either and was going to skip this challenge.

Then I thought about my “Back to Basics” project and decided to make the post about that.

A few years ago I got tired of the auto everything aspect of modern digital equipment. As a result I put together a small kit of manual focus prime lenses and started shooting digital the same way I used to shoot film for years. Getting back to the basics of photography.

Recently I discovered TTArtisan lenses. Tiny manual focus lenses designed for small mirrorless cameras. So I put together a compact, lightweight kit based around them.

Some Autumn Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Let’s hear it for the leaves prompt.

Most of the leaves in this part of Ontario have been off the trees for a while now. However, a few weeks ago I started picking up interesting leaves with the intention of doing some table top studio photos using them. The fallen leaves have been buried under snow a few times since I started collecting them.
