Follow Your Bliss

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Follow Your Bliss prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt but I wasn’t happy with either and was going to skip this challenge.

Then I thought about my “Back to Basics” project and decided to make the post about that.

A few years ago I got tired of the auto everything aspect of modern digital equipment. As a result I put together a small kit of manual focus prime lenses and started shooting digital the same way I used to shoot film for years. Getting back to the basics of photography.

Recently I discovered TTArtisan lenses. Tiny manual focus lenses designed for small mirrorless cameras. So I put together a compact, lightweight kit based around them.

Green Moss Amongst the Autumn Leaves

Getting Back to Basics: Moss and Autumn Leaves

Moss covered boulders amongst autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood with a small mirrorless camera and the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

There’s patches of snow amongst the autumn leaves while the woodland floor was underwater behind me.
