A New Experience

by Camellia Staab August. 09, 2020 620 views

This week's 52 frame challenge required that we try something new. Something we have not done before. Some of the ideas they suggested were:

- A new photo technique that you have never tried before --this could be both in camera and in editing! 
- Visiting a place (restaurant, museum, coffee shop, street, city) that you have never seen before
- Experiment with a brand new hobby, for example knitting, tree shaping or skydiving!
- Have a closer look at your camera’s manual and try something you have not done before, for example shooting in manual mode, in RAW or with back button focus
-Create a memory. Find an activity that would be so new and exciting to you that you will cherish it for the ages

I chose experimenting with capturing frozen flowers.

Some of the results came out nice, in my opinion, others blah. But nevertheless is was a fun experiment.

These are beautiful, Camellia. I have been thinking of trying this for some time now but heard that often bubbles will freeze in and destroy the effect. And not being as experimental as you, I gave up. You've inspired me to try it. Are there any tips to pass along?

The only lesson I learned is that distilled water does freeze more clear than regular tap water.

I think I prefer them "au naturel". But I love your photos and creativity

It is much more abstract so I do agree that au naturel is the better, especially if "macroed" smile

I agree with Sherry, #8 is beautiful. I think, it's because the shining white on the left side makes it so dreamy. The other ones are not so mine, but it's a nice experiment.

I do agree that #8 and #7 are much better captures than the rest. The only other one that I actually like is #1 because of the frozen lines.

Not something I would do on a regular basis but it was worth a try.
