It has been a busy week. But, I still managed to get some photography. I went back to my Canon 24mm lens to try to capture some full scenes. Here are a few of the photos I made this week. I’ve also been sharing my daily photography attempts on my TikTok.
Good afternoon! I have had a busy week at the day job. I’ve also been working on building up my TikTok, so I haven’t had as much free time to get blog posts ready every morning. But, I’m really enjoying my TikTok stuff. I’m also fine with only posting the better stuff on my blog, so I think it’s working out. Speaking of better stuff, I got these shots this week at the Big Four Bridge in Downtown Louisville.
Sometimes, especially when I’m out with my 50mm lens, I forget to turn around and look behind me. With this new 24mm lens, I wanted to start off strong by at least remembering to turn around and see what’s there. I can get some interesting lighting and perspectives that way. Coming from the 50mm, the 24mm is wider than I’m used to, so I’m still playing with perspective and composition a little. I think these turned out pretty alright for some quick shots. You can see the full resolution on my Flickr.
I spent one more day forcing myself to carry around my Canon 55-250mm lens on my Rebel SL3. I saw this guy standing by a pole. At first he was looking down, but a few moments later he looked up and I got a good profile. I’m going to switch back to my 50mm lens for a few days because I’m starting to really notice the limitations of a lens that isn’t a prime lens.
I went out on my lunch break yesterday and looked for some ways to use shadows. Some people like to use buildings and do more urban photography styled street photography, but I’m still all about needing to see a face. I need to use shadows and light better in my photos. In addition to my shadow hunting, I hope I’m not overdoing the black and white. Black and white is less distracting to edit because when I edit color I second-guess my decisions too much and end up not getting anything accomplished, or with too many versions of the same photo on my Flickr.
