The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
This weeks trial from Preeti is an interesting one. It’s candid. The suggestion is that we capture a subject that doesn’t know their photo is being taken.
Now I’ve given myself the additional challenge of trying to ensure that any post still has a theme that would work with my blog theme of environmentalism.
What could I photograph that might not know it was in front of the lens.
First stop the back yard. I’ve been given a lens for my iPhone that acts as a remote camera too. It links to my phone by wifi. So this was a great opportunity to use it in a different way.
Those naughty hens get another chance at the limelight.
Do you think they know they’re on camera?
So that was the start of my journey on this challenge but I wasn’t finished yet.
On a short walk near the house I captured this fella through the willow branches. I was quite pleased with this spy hole. So then I found this.
I like the framing of the tree supports.
But I wanted one more back yard shot. Recently I was given a camera lens that works with my iPhone it can be clipped on the front but as it works with it’s own wifi it can also be used as a camera on its own.
Now our back yard has another resident. She’s very elusive but I thought the lens might give me an opportunity.
On Thursday night I waited an hour looking at a blank screen no sign of the visitor I wanted.
Eventually the battery went flat and I had to give up no sign.
On Friday I tried again. It was later so light was a challenge. Within ten minutes I got what I was hoping for.
