Every once in a while, it’s nice to force ourselves to get a little creative with our photography. Today, I’m offering (and taking) my first photo challenge – choose the closest focusing lens that you have, set it to its maximum aperture, and get at least 10 shots from around the outside of your house. Then, convert to black and white.
For this challenge, I chose my 1970’s-era Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AI-S manual-focus lens, mounted to my Sony A6000 digital camera through a Fotga lens adaptor. All shots were hand-held, though that isn’t a stipulation for this challenge. Post-processing is okay because, naturally, we need to convert these photos into black and white. I tweaked the contrast on these shots as well before posting them.
Settings for this challenge:
Camera: Sony A6000
Camera mode: Aperture priority
Lens: Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AI-S Micro
Lens aperture: 2.8
