The 2021 Photo Project
It's been a quiet couple of years on the photography front. 2019 was rather horrible on the personal front. Times in hospital for me. A string of deaths in the family. And 2020, was well, 2020. There was little time left for photography.
So this year I'm keen to kick-start things with a more regular photography schedule. It's also motivated by my (almost) complete shift now to the Sony E-mount system. For years I have been shooting with the Minolta alpha-mount (succeeded by the Sony A-mount). Now I am shooting mostly with a Sony a7Riii and a nice collection of Zeiss and Voigtlander prime lenses. These are some of the best lenses I have used, so it seems like a good idea to use them more frequently.
The project I'm doing (in conjunction with several other members of the Dyxum photography site) is a project of 150 photos (3 per week) for the rest of the year. We will be using the hashtag #Photo150 if you want to check things out on Twitter or IG. Within that project I've got 3 parallel challenges. Each week I'll post something from these challenges.
The first challenge is to try something creative. This could be a stacked image, or a stitched panorama, or a long exposure etc. Basically to either refine my skill with some techniques or do something I haven't tried before. So nothing that's straight from the camera. It might even be some video clips or time lapses.
The second challenge is a macro challenge. While I do have a macro lens (a Voigtlander 110/2.5) there are ways to use ordinary primes to take macro photos.
The third challenge is a wide-angle lens challenge. That will mean photos with either my 15mm, 21mm or 35mm lens. This may not stretch me much but I haven't used a 15mm lens ever. And the focal length promises to be interesting.
Ngā mihi o te tau hou and hopefully, more things photographic.
Heoi anō tāku mō nāianei
Nice challenge! Will keep following you through Dyxum.
Keep it up!
