2018. #Datca, #Turkey.
Just a composition exploration shot before I got out the infrared filter and tripod. (those will be edited when I get home to my work station - I can't see colors on my travel laptop screen. This was edited by looking at the histogram)
What was my camera doing you ask?
Well... ok see it has been 1 year since I bought my sony a6000, and apparently that's how long it takes before I try to do things with equipment that you should not be capable of doing...
By the way, if you notice how noisy this is... you can use stacking to reduce noise, and increase resolution a little bit... and that ties back to how I ran out of SD card space. XD
Its the second day of my seaside vacation and I ran out of SD card space.
But how you say?
(this was taken from my cellphone "attached" to my camera to demonstrate to two children that you can photography milkyway with a cellphone)
#editbacklog For the longest time I didn't consider myself a photographer but an artist that uses photography as one of her primary materials, because sometimes the way I use photography disregards most basic rules of the medium.
Shadow of a tree. 2017, Datca, #Turkey
#lunareclipse2018 as the moon just begins to move out of shadow.
This image is actually a stack of 10 images, that's what it took to get to this level zoom from the 135mm lens on crop sensor raws.
#editbacklog - the "not much of a backlog and more straight from the oven" edition.
...because #Istanbul is having an acute case of a clear sky by some miracle.
Sony a6000, Samyang 135mm F.2.0 Istanbul #Turkey
Obviously a very detail crop.
#humanalgorithms piece is so close to being done...
I think part of the challenge is that after the hiccups on last 2 works, I am a bit hesitant to draw, self-conscious which translates to this going very slow.
Well... and that the number of layers. *doesn't want to think to closely about marker ink spent on this one*
Also F1.4 plus a macro filter makes for some absurdly shallow depth of field. Adding the infrared filter on top, this was tricky to photograph. XD
What do you do with paper that turns out not to be acid free?
Having to memorize how to create a color or texture is not fun. These will help.
I am also going to try to get better at using open camera.
Sometimes a photograph wants to be 2 different things. I had a very clear vision of the story I wanted to tell with this picture and larger series, so that crop ended up being what it is. However, in this case, it does break my heart a little because the original is a very powerful photo in itself. So here it is, for posterity. ;)
(oh.. the cost of this photo was a 4-day long headache, and it was the last photo taken before retreating indoors.)
#editbacklog Istanbul being in a ominous mood. Another one of the thunderstorms from last year. This one I actually waited inside until it was a bit far away.
