Monthly Squares

Perspective on clouds at dusk

This is my day 13 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. I had set up the camera hoping for some colourful clouds at sunset but it didn’t happen.

As the camera was set up on the tripod I decided to experiment with the live composite setting on the camera. Using live composite the camera takes a single base exposure and the continues to make exposures recording any highlights that change. A modern take on the old multiple exposures technique.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Simplicity

When I read the prompt for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Simplicity I had a few ideas for the challenge.

Before I had even started narrowing the ideas down we lost our internet connection for the second time in less than a week. So I forgot about the prompt not knowing when we would be back online.

When I came back to the prompt I ignored my previous ideas after thinking about simplifying some of my camera kit. An accident a year ago left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm and I needed a smaller, lighter kit for my personal work.

So here’s a small selection of photos from the last 10 months taken locally with a small mirrorless camera and three manual focus prime lenses. If I’m going for a walk around the neighborhood I pick a lens and find images with it. If I’m going somewhere in the car I take a small bag with a mirrorless camera, wide angle, standard and telephoto lenses.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 6th April 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to one of my walks around the neighborhood. On this walk I fitted an ultra wide angle lens to the camera and was using it for some photos of the bare trees.

For this shot I focused on some interesting bark on the trunk of a tree while having a couple of out of focus Paper Birch trees against a cloudless sky in the background.
