Tuesday Photo Challenge – Focus

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Focus.

As I have mentioned in some previous posts, I have been making some changes to the equipment I carry when out and about shooting personal work. I have put together a set of three small, manual focus primes and a small mirrorless camera body.

The kit fits in a small camera bag which weighs next to nothing compared to my normal shoulder bag. It’s a lot easier on the shoulder I injured in early spring.

I’m really enjoying getting back to basics with a kit similar to the gear I used as a photography student all those years ago.

Three shots of flowers on the South Bruce Peninsula taken when testing each of the manual focus primes that make up my back to basics kit.

The first was taken with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open.

The second shot is taken with a Samyang 12mm f/2 lens wide open.

The third shot was taken with the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open.

Monochrome Monday: 2nd September 2019

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to my first outing with the Samyang 12mm lens.

This group of Coneflowers was quite colourful but I thought that the shapes and features of the flowers would make an interesting monochrome conversion. I went with a high key edit which seems to focus attention on the centres of the Coneflowers.

A couple of recent early mornings.

A couple of outings down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. The first two outings for my recently assembled, lightweight, back to basics camera kit comprising of a small mirrorless camera body and three manual focus primes.

The first outing for the kit saw it and me caught in a thunderstorm and heavy rain shortly after the photo was taken. A 60 second exposure as it was a dark morning.

The following morning saw a lot less cloud and an absence of thunder rumbling and heavy rain.
