More Autumn ICM

Getting Back to Basics: Another ICM Experiment

An intentional camera movement image from a recent walk around the neighborhood.

I hadn’t gone out intending to shoot ICM images, I had put the TTArtisan 35mm lens on my Sony with the intention of looking for autumn details in the thawing snow.

The Sony/35mm combination is small and light and can be tucked under my coat if the weather changes. Something that has happened a couple of times recently.

ICM of Trees in Snow

Back to Basics: ICM of trees in snow

Intentional camera movement of trees in snow on the South Bruce Peninsula.

A recent walk around the neighborhood on an overcast day. I wasn’t planning on shooting ICM images but the majority of the photos from the walk ended up being ICM.

Since taking the photo we have had some mild weather and rain. As a result most of the snow has now disappeared.


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.
