This is my take on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Real vs Fake prompt.
What I mean by the title of this post is using the camera to produce images that couldn’t be seen by the naked eye.
Clouds streaking across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. A fake view due to using a 5 minute exposure using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus camera. It’s 300 one second exposures composited in the camera.
Golden light on the Government Dock. 25 minutes after the first photo was taken a real view of the rising sun illuminating the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula.
A real view of Paper Birch trees again a blue sky.
A fake view of Paper Birch trees against a blue sky using rotational camera movement during exposure.
Continuing my experiments with intentional camera movement.
Yesterday morning I went for a walk with a wide angle lens on the camera. I had put a 4 stop neutral density filter on the lens to give a slow enough shutter speed to allow me to experiment with intentional camera movement.
One thing I tried was pointing the camera upwards at the tops of trees and rotating it.
I went with a mix of topics, tree, blue, sky and cloud. I liked the way the Paper Birch trees stood out against a blue sky. We haven’t seen much blue sky this winter and until a few days ago these Paper Birch trees were inaccessible due to the snow in places.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pail or Pale prompt.
I had the idea of doing something with pale Paper Birch bark. So I went for a walk and couldn’t believe it when I found a pale pail being held down with a pale piece of Paper Birch firewood. The pail is protecting a plant from the frost and snow. Ten days ago it was probably mostly buried in snow.
On a side note, I noticed at the weekend that according to my WordPress statistics that I had made 99 Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge posts so this is number 100.
