My contribution for


‘Captivate Me’ 



My final submission for January contains both the

Urn and Garden shots taken using

the same effects modes in my camera.

No other editing has been done to any of the photos.

My favourite is Week 3…I think a lot of fun could be had using that effect.

The draw back with all these effects is that this is what they are.

If that makes sense.

The same photos taken, no effects, could be edited into (nearly)

any of these shots  while retaining the original.

I guess the plus is that you can use the effect and have a

different starting point for your editing.

Until I can use these effects while I’m asleep I think they will remain in

the novelty basket to be used after ‘serious’ shots have been taken.


The instruction book states that

Night Vision uses extreme high  ISO settings

(maximum Hi 4  or ISO 102400)

and produces monochrome images.  

Autofocus is available only in Live View/movie shooting,

and not always then, so manual focus may be required.

I think it is a great way to obtain a good Black and White image.

  1. Ive really enjoyed this experiment Woolly and the 2 images gives such a variation on your edits. Week 3 is my favourite for the Urn and Week 4 for the garden 😃
