I decided to play a little today so I started moving the camera around while pressing the shutter button. I like the effect this had on the tall pine trees we were walking through this afternoon. I set the camera to shutter priority, set the speed to 1/20, let the aperture set itself and moved the camera vertically as I took the picture. I brought the shadows up a tiny bit in Lightroom and that's it.
Earlier I'd been shooting in monochrome straight from the camera but the day was dull and I couldn't find any high-contrast shots except for the pine trees below. Strangely, Lightroom converted them all into colour when I imported them. Must be something to do with converting them to .dng files. But it was easy to convert them back into black and white. And when I saw the beautiful, subtle hues in this close up of bark I was glad I had it in colour.
