Friday Image No. 142

Olympus EM5 converted to shoot Infrared. Four images merged to panoramic in Lightroom. Panasonic 45-150mm lens at 45mm. ISO200, 1/80″ at f/8.0. Post processing in Alien Skin Exposure.

This week I have come to realise that I’m not getting out to any new locations to photograph. When I do manage to get out, I seem to be repeating many of the scenes and shots I have taken in the past. Or at least that’s the way it feels.

This image was taken on a recent trip to Cornwall and is a case in point. I have visited the location before but have never been happy with the image. That’s why I haven’t shared them. I’m not sure that I’m any happier with this image but I’m forcing myself to share it as I’m not likely to visit again soon to shoot it again.

And that’s the point. I seem to be caught in a loop of not being satisfied with my images and so I keep returning to shoot them again and again, never creating anything new. I’m going to work on this for the next 12 months to see if I can improve. I’m also determined to get out with a camera more often.

Hope you have a great weekend.

  1. I really like this image! However, I often feel the same as you do: I take the same shot again and again. One reason is, I tend to repeat the same paths; another I shot my pictures at the time I reachthe place, with the light I find, and I always hope to be luckier next time.

  2. It’s a nice image but to be honest I don’t think the infrared has added anything to this particular image as there are too many highlights. Would have been better in my view as an ‘ordinary’ mono.

    1. Perhaps the ordinary mono would have been better but I only had the IR camera with me at the time. I had left the other behind because the sun was so strong and the shadows so deep that I didn’t think it worked well. Perhaps I will have to go back again after all.
