lens-artists: my journey

Two Sonys, one Ricoh, one Lumix, one Leica, two Nikons, and one iPhone have been my photography companions over the past 10 years. Our wanderings has had its ups and downs … losing files, grieving of Aperture, diving into various software editing programs, a self-learning photography project, breaking rules, being obsessed with various subjects, experimenting various techniques, and being awed by multiple photographers, world wide.

It has been a journey! Let’s begin with one of my first macros with a Ricoh.

Exploring monochrome
motion blur photography
wide open aperture
point of view photography
double exposure

…and there were the obsessions with…

the dandelion family
egg obsession

and during this pandemic…

skyscape obsession

and the list goes on and on. Thank you Amy for the invitation pause for a bit to reflect on where I’ve been and to share a bit of my photo journey.

  1. Enjoyed your journey Brenda (and suffered through the loss of Aperture along with you and I’m sure many others 😑). Have especially liked your experiments with double exposures, which I”ve not yet tried.

    1. Thank you Tina for your supportive words. Actually it is comforting to know that I was not the only one to grieve the loss of Aperture.

  2. These are beautiful images, as always, Brenda. Thank you for sharing your journey.
    I love the double exposure and the dandelion, especially.
    You made a link, somehow your post link did not show on my site. So glad I found you in WP Reader. πŸ™‚

    1. More and more I am finding that when something seems to not be working it is more likely me who is in error. Hoping my correction did pop up on your site. It is great to read that you liked the dandelion image.

  3. Well, I am still using Aperture (on my old Mac running the last OS to support Aperture) and really need to learn Lightroom (I have it on my newer Mac) or there could be misery ahead

    1. I do hope your old Mac doesn’t crash and burn. Lightroom and I just can’t seem to “create” a working relationship. My go to software is Capture One with some additional editing in Photoshop and the old Nik Collection.

  4. One of the many things I love about photography is not just the documenting of life and capturing the beauty of the everyday, but it’s a hobby where you can experiment and continously learn new techniques.
