Let’s see how high we can fly before the sun melts the wax in our wings. ~ Edward O. Wilson ~
This theme is as wide open as the prairie sky. How will you portray “Experimental”? Will it be the fresh lemon-cranberry scones you whipped up, tired of the usual blueberry muffins? Will it be a close-up of the piano where you just composed an original in a key new to you? Will it be capturing a subject using varying compositions or photographic techniques? Regardless of how you choose to show us “Experimental,” I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
Sometimes I like to experiment with my camera settings while capturing moments in time. These two photos are from a night sitting by the fire in my back yard. It took a very steady hand and many shots to capture the flames as I wished. I wanted to capture the movement of the dancing flames.
I’ve had this idea playing in my mind of something fun and creative. Sometimes I play with the camera settings a to see if the ordinary can be captured in an extraordinary way and my camera surprises me with fun photos.
“There is no such thing as a failed experiment, only experiments with unexpected outcomes.” ~ Richard Buckminster Fuller ~
While at the beach it was fun experimenting to see what could be captured using different settings. If you have a camera, just have some fun with it. Be a little playful like a child playing on the beach. Some photos will be released and others saved. The whole point is to experiment and enjoy the experience.
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” ~ Ernst Haas ~
I hope you have enjoyed my experimental photos and I look forward to viewing yours.
Love and Light!
