I spent part of Christmas experimenting with intentional camera movement on my table top studio.

Autumn in the Studio

A week or two back I started a winter project photographing leaves and other items I have been picking up on my walks around the neighborhood.

I set up my table top studio and started experimenting with different lighting techniques and lenses.

This week Tina gives us the prompt You Choose for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. So after considering a few options I decided to go with a small selection of autumn in the studio photos.

Autumn Colour On Scrubland

Getting Back to Basics: Autumn Colour On Scrubland

Autumn colour on scrubland on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario last Sunday afternoon.

A shot from a day spent shooting only with a back to basics kit consisting of a small mirrorless Sony camera and four manual focus prime lenses. This shot was taken with the Rokinon 85mm short telephoto.

Possibly the first post in what may become either Back to Basics Tuesday or Telephoto Tuesday.

A Day of My Week

This week Amy has given us the prompt A Day of My Week for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I had the idea of putting together a small camera kit and using it for everything I photographed on Sunday.

I put the kit together on Saturday evening only to change my mind and put a different kit together early Sunday morning before heading down to the local bay for the sunrise.

The kit I used was a small mirrorless Sony and four manual focus prime lenses. I decided that the post would be one photo taken with each of the lenses during the day.
