Week 1 - Jan 3-9, 2021:
Ellen Martin Still Life
These pottery vegetables got moved to a new location due to putting up the Christmas tree. On January 4, 2021, I glanced over at the table and said to myself, oh the light looks so nice. I picked up my iPhone and snapped the image.
Eben Ostby Waterfall
Taken on slow film with a Zeiss Ikon Tenax 1, which shoots square (24x24mm) photos on 35mm film. I didn’t bring a tripod so I braced the camera on a rock.
Sara Coffey Self Portrait
Every year I try to start w/ a self-portrait. There were numerous trips in & out of the van hitting my head on the door frame each time.
F1.8 1/5 iso 400 @ 50mm Used a remote & converted to B&W, edited in Topaz.
Bob Kovach Focus Stacking
My attempt at close up focus stacking, 12 shots at f/4, 1/50 sec, ISO 200
Judy Robichaux Circle of Life
Focal Points plus Aperture; f/8,ISO 2500, 1/80 second handheld indoors
Chuck Almarez Roaring Run
Details: iPhone 11Pro, Photo Mode, 1/120 sec, f/2.4, overcast lighting.
Week 2 - Jan 10-16, 2021:
Breanna Butkoff Sand to Surf
Cape May, NJ. Taken with 35mm lens on my Canon T7i. Focused on landscape shots today and wanted some depth.
Chuck Almarez The Sentinal
This little guy sits on my bathroom window sill, seldom noticed and under-appreciated. It’s a bit kind of like a friend that you just take for granted until they’re no longer there . . . or their light goes out. The big scenes, the vistas that yell “Take my picture!,” the ones we travel miles to capture and sometimes wait for the other photographers to move their tripods and get out of the way, those are the ones that make you crow. But it’s the little things, the insignificant but important little things, that you’ve got to search out, recognize, and appreciate. They're not necessarily things you have to travel long distances to capture — not in miles or hours anyway. But they are the little things that are around your house, maybe in your garden, or even on a shelf or window sill where they’ve been for years. You still have to “travel” to get to them, but that distance is not measured in miles or hours. The trick is to not just look, but to see, and sometimes not just as they are but rather what they could be.
Taken at 1/50 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200, 138mm, darkened the area around the candle about 2 stops, and added a Lens Flare filter to the bulb.
Ellen Martin Wires
Afternoon light on wires so often brings to mind, will they all be put underground in my lifetime? That is why I photograph them, for the next generation to see and smile, laugh?, about. Taken with a Panasonic GX-8, 12-60 lens.
Eben Ostby Barack Buff Brahma
This is Barack Buff Brahma, a handsome rooster, and he knows it. Taken with an Olympus OM-1 film camera, Zuiko 50mm f1.4 opened pretty wide so I could keep him in focus and blur out the background.
Bob Kovach Snow!!
A closeup photo taken Saturday morning before the sparse snowfall melted. Taken handheld with an Olympus mirrorless camera at f/3.5, 1/800 sec, at ISO 200.
Michael Smith Orchids
Photo of mini orchid blooms taken in morning light with an iPhone with a macro lens attachment.
Judy Robichaux Jets
iPhone XR, ISO 25, f/1.8, 1/8000 seconds. Totally unexpected test of phone's capabilities when given a split second to photograph 4 jets together. Taken from a car going 70 mph on Interstate 64 near Lexington.
Sara Coffey Maternity
Shot at f/8, 1/80 sec, ISO 400 @ 18mm A maternity session for a friend that involved a couple and their dog. The challenge was picking a warmish day for winter, which meant the sunny time of day was not the best time for photos. This was entering into the golden hour & the sun was very low. This is a composite of two photos so I could remove the two people throwing the flowery material into the air. Used Topaz Glow & also darkened the sky & mountains.
