It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.
Edited versions of previous sample images (first w/ 3x converter lens + crop, second without), as a demo of a usable aesthetic I could get out of this setup - since edges are soft, amping up clarity and contrast to emphasize what center sharpness there is.
Not the aesthetic I wanted, but it could be cool in some situations.
A big thank you to everyone in the fediverse who are engaging with me and my work/photography.
I'm not , unfortunately, up to getting out, nor to managing to photograph anything, today.
However, your kind generosity and spirit of giving & sharing is oxygen a plenty. Keep supporting one another and the fediverse as best you can. 📷👍😎
@itdm5j21 Scenery like this is the main reason why I want to go to the UK again. It's so tranquil and beautiful!
Consistent 'problem' I'm having w/ ricoh GR is that the dof is way narrower than I expect it to be, so I frequently don't get focus quite where I wanted it to be. I need to find a way to have focus assist always be on. Also I need to remember to switch it into macro mode more often, because without being in macro mode it can't focus very close at all.
Not actually problems so much as I just need to get better at using the thing...
A place for your photos and banter. Photog first is our motto
