This week’s challenge is to great a ‘dreamscape’ image. This involves taking the same photograph, superimposing one copy over another and blurring the base layer, then adjusting colours and other things.
I took this photograph in St Barnabas churchyard at 7am today.
This week’s assignment took me right out of my comfort zone. It is to use the zoom while taking the photograph.
I have never done anything like this. I spent most of the week thinking about it and avoiding the task. Then I finally got around to it, and took hundreds of images. I like this one best. It is marbles on a lightbox, with lots of Lightroom tweaks. I did use a tripod, but you can see that there is still a little shake in the zoom.
My image for the latest Bishop’s waltham Photographic Society challenge, the theme being “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link”. 3 images layered one on top of the other, and then processed mainly by tweaking the colours.
This is an experiment. I have been trying the OM mount 75-260 zoom on my Olympus EM1 mark ii micro 4/3 camera, using an OM to M4/3 adaptor. This image was taken with the lens at 260mm, so with the quirks of the M4/3 system this becomes equivalent to about 520mm. And it is manual focus, so relying on my eyesight to ensure a sharp image.
