What happens when you go closer to a brick wall with a macro lens, enhance the contrasts to extremes and adjust the color temperature. Well, a new world opens to you.
These bike riding people crossed my lens when I was making pictures of the architecture and reflections.
Location: around the bike passage at the station of Leuven(B)
Lens: Canon 50mm f1.8 MK-I
During a wine tasting at the vignard I tried this experment. I can confirm it is much better than a lensball
Be a tourist in own country. Brussels is 1 hour driving from my home town by train or by car. I only used my 50mm lens (Canon nifty fifty f1.8 MK-I)
3 composition with contrasts of cold & warm colors, and old & new
White sky, so what
To focus on lines and reflections of buildings you need to look up. That’s what I did in this series of 10 compositions
Post processing: added contrasts (also shadows-high lights), vignetting, enhanced the yellow tones, changed color temperature to warm.
Gear: Canon camera with 50mm F1.8 MKI
Why not add drama to ordinary landscape by going low + add split toning (warm-cold contrast)
Do you feel attracted to geometric lines and repetitions in your photography. Try to visit a parking garage. This one is new built and only few cars were parked at -2 level. Also the lights are only on where a car comes through, so light conditions changes all the time.
Location: “Quartier Bleu” in Hasselt – Belgium
I knew it exist but never had a close look at the “Xanthoria parietina“? So I took a small branch with this greenish moss on it at home. I took the 50mm f1.8 and the macro extension tubes to the maximum. Wow, the fantastic world of the micro cosmos showed me its secrets.
Na de regen, als de zware wolken nog voorbij komen, een laag standpunt (fototoestel op de grond als het kan). De kleine plassen zijn dan prachtige spiegels van de wolkenlucht. Locatie: “de wolverdel” gelegen tussen Halmaal en BevingenSpiegelingen in een plas — Sint-Truiden en omgeving
