The start of the New Year with a little project
The first day of 2015 started with a little project and a hike. As I normally do I took my camera, but to make things fun, I only carried a 35mm DX lens attached to FX sensor camera with the camera set to monochrome. If all this DX FX stuff does not make any sense to you, basically it is referring to the sensor size, and using a DX lens on an FX camera means that most of the images, if not all, will have some strong vignetting. This was all part of the plan because I wanted the limitations set by the DX lens and the black and white camera setting to force me to see things differently.
Being New Years Day, I also wanted to simplify things and look at the world with a new perspective. This meant less gear, less images, and a free flowing photo hunt. Instead of taking several shots of the same subject to make sure it was perfect, I tried to only take one and to not focus too much on the storyline but on the images that caught my eye.
This little project was all about playing and helped to remind me why I like photography so much.
