Any city can be your canvas to take pictures of pigeons, ivy, trees. Look for nice details or points of view. Photos through a plexiglass dome. Concrete or masonry can contrast the subject. So many different possibilities. Elke stad kan uw canvas zijn om foto’s te maken van duiven, klimop, bomen. Zoek naar leuke details […]
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
A series of flower petals covered with dew. Early mornig a rose garden next to some wood. The dew was nicely covering the fragile rose petals. I took my 50mm and an extension tube to get better details.
The bokeh may not be perfect. Taken with my nifty fifty f1.8 Mk1 I used shadow highlight in post-processing to avoid a dark spot in the centre of the flower
Picked a flower from the side of the road for details at my home studio. Then I noticed the tiny visitor.
why shooting at f1.8? It results in pictures you cannot see by the eye. The eye will always try to get everything sharp. With post processing I faded out the heavy yellow which was taking all attention away from the subject
Heavy yellow popping from my screen. As if the subject is the color yellow. Desaturation and some color adjustments were needed to get it right (for me)
