Some backlit Maple leaves and another of my tests using various lenses to photograph flowers and plants. This group of leaves were a regular test subject in the spring and summer.
In this case I was using the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.
I went down to Colpoy’s Bay 45 minutes before sunrise yesterday morning.
This is a 3 minute exposure of the clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. Taken using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. The base exposure was 1 second with a further 179 exposures of 1 second composited in the camera to record the movement of the clouds.
I suppose a Live Composite image is similar to a Collage which is the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt this week.
Actually, lots of stars, a shooting star and a planet. This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Star.
What looks like the brightest star is really the planet Venus over Colpoy’s Bay a couple of hours before sunrise. There’s also a shooting star.
Photographed a couple of weeks ago when I was looking for Comet Neowise.
My contribution to Six Word Saturday.
This summer I have been continuing my experiments with using unusual lenses for various subjects.
One set of photos is using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants. In this example I used the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open to photograph a Fern frond on a walk around the neighborhood.
This is my day 31 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the last of my wide angle perspective series.
It’s been interesting picking squares and putting together series for the month. A big thank you to Becky for running the challenge with such a wide ranging theme.
I started the month with a monochrome photo of these wood piles so I thought I would end the month with a different photo using a different camera and lens combo plus it’s in colour this time.
It’s still not obvious that the grass behind the wood piles is only a few inches below the top of them and that they’re holding back almost two feet of dirt and rocks.
