1 Thing 10 Ways Challenge: Week 2
Here we are – week 2 of my 1 thing 10 ways challenge! (Also now a part of Forgiving Fridays https://forgivingconnects.com/2018/10/19/today-is-forgiving-fridays-topic-accepting-all-of-yourself-and-a-poem/)
Today, a mundane subject, all taken with my/Kevin’s 50mm lens, all at F1.4 (yes, a nice fast 50mm) and all at ISO 100, handheld. Only the shutter speed changed. I am working on exposure and seeing things from different angles. And it’s obvious in all of these that I continue to need to work on my focus. And getting out of my comfort zone! I should mention that I challenged myself to only take one shot for each “way”, so I did – I only took 10 shots, no trials, but plenty of errors (especially the aforementioned focus)!
So, here we go!
I stepped to the other side of the room and shot at 1/15
And a move into different light, without moving the cup, went to 1/25
I moved the cup in front of a mirror for a bit of a reflection again at 1/25
And this is my favourite, even out of focus, at 1/60 and post-produced into black and white.
Thought I would surround said subject teacup with other teacups, back to 1/15
I wish this was more in focus. 1/25
From above at 1/80 – more light on the dining room table.
And finally, I turned the cup upside down at 1/30

The black and white is my favorite too. Nicely done.
I love love love this, Emily! I acknowledge you for doing something new, and for just taking the photos in one go. To me this allows for free expression. In fact, I’d love to share this post for #ForgivingFridays if that’s ok! This shows the power of courage and doing an act outside of your comfort zone! You’re welcome to link back to my last blog post and not necessary if you’d rather.
So inspiring! Blessings to you, Debbie
Sure – I hadn’t thought of that. I’ll add a link back to your last post. Thanks!
Yay! Got it, Emily. 🙂 I’ll share your post for #ForgivingFridays tomorrow. Love it & am so inspired by your work. Have a great weekend!
Awesome! I must admit I love the kitty cup in #7!
Interesting you saw a kitty, although I guess, knowing whose post this is, not surprising. It is actually some kind of abstract flower, but now I’ll always see a kitty!
Perhaps that was it … expectation and perception … and distorted vision 😉
I love the blur background in some of the images.
Thanks! I do like a shallow depth of field…
