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.

A Burst of Colour

WWE: A Burst of Colour

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario shortly before sunrise last Sunday.

I wasn’t expecting much colour and went down to the bay with the intention of making images suitable for monochrome conversion. The colour didn’t last long but it was bright.

This is my contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #100 photo challenge.
