Up Close & Abstract | Orcas Island Fine Art Photography

In early March, I spent a solitary week on Orcas Island healing from a long illness, taking things slow, and searching for inspiration and guidance. Each day, I made it my goal to take out one camera and one lens to make some photographs. I photograph with prime (fixed-length) lenses, because I love the image quality and light each lens lets in. I’m always challenged to choose the right lens for a shot and move my body to the ideal location, rather than just zooming in or out. Choosing just one lens each day and playing with the features and limitations of each taught me a lot about the qualities of each lens and will definitely help me with being mindful about my lens choices in the future. You’ve already seen some of my 85mm Hassleblad and 50mm Leica film photographs (both Zeiss lenses) that include images from the trip. Today, I’ve picked a handful of photographs from my playtime with our Canon 100mm 2.8L macro lens and 135mm 2.0L lens. Enjoy the delicious texture and detail!
