Shutter Zoom (week 11)

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.
