2018 Octoberfest – Minuteman3 – 6D2 50mm f1.4 – Day 13 [Oct 18]

Discussion in 'Photo Meme' started by Minuteman3, Oct 2, 2018.

  1. Day 1

    Although I am still pondering a real "theme", I'm leaning quite strongly towards "In the Weeds" - which I am thinking is an exploration of shooting a variety of subjects from a very low angle.

    One of the things I like about the 6D2 is the articulating view screen which makes taking these kind of shots much easier. We'll see ...

    These two are from my front yard today. Some flowers my wife just bought and a solitary leaf from one of my oak trees (soon to be joined by thousands of similar leaves - I have a dozen big oaks!!)

    Colorful - both photos. I like the lone leaf. One thing I don't think I'll seeing much off down here is fall color.

  6. Ken, with a dozen oaks in the yard, you are a shoo-into be the winner of our "most October color" award (sorry just kidding). I look forward to seeing what you can do with that articulating screen.

    If you keep with the low theme, this looks to be quite an interesting month! Neat perspective of a garden.

    Lovely images! And that greenery is so lush and full; I really like it!

  16. Good enough to eat, Ken! On the second shot, I think the overall picture could be more effective if the focus were on the middle plant, rather than on the right-side leaves. It took me years to learn to pull such obstacles out of the way, but then again, I don't think I'd do it in the wife's garden!

  18. Day 3

    May be a day or two before I have time to continue more than this ... our first steady rain in a long time reduces my enthusiasm to go outside to shoot!! ;) 

    From my front doorstep ... my wife's projects for the next non-rainy days.
