Somehow during the week I got the idea using a sheet of glass for this exercise. This morning I cut some roses and put them in a blue vase. I put my white light tent over the flowers and used a continues light to illuminate the roses. I added a polarise filter to my lens to eliminate class reflection and prefocused the distance. I got this image which made my day!
My advice: Take an idea and run with it. It’s okay to be frustrated, but don’t give up. At the end of the week you will have something worth the effort!
There are many weeds on my exercise walk and normally I don’t pay very much attention to them. That is probably a mistake. One thing about photography is that everyone can photograph the obviously; a creative photographer however will look for the hidden stuff. In the beginning it maybe even look a little bit “stupid” but the interesting image will come out sooner or later.
In the park I saw this group of palm trees. It was an overcast day and still the shot was worth it. I basically shot from the ground up using a 15mm wide angle lens an a full frame camera.
Enjoy and happy exercising
There are few playgrounds On my daily exercise walk (with a camera of course). I usually overlook them but they are wonderful to photograph and offer great opportunities to study the light. I photographed this image underneath a slide. I had the camera close to the ground and shot straight up. Enjoy and happy photographing!
Look straight up and photograph what you see. You may also lay on your back and photograph the world around you. This simple exercise opens your eye to see things around you that you normally overlook! Again, have fun with this exercise!
Example: I photographed this eucalyptus tree with a 24mm lens looking straight up. Enjoy!
