Thank you for the votes and comments on yesterdays upload - later that evening I forgot that in the original conversion I had allowed a hint of selective colour to be seen - perhaps this version will see the light one day.

I had a chance to play with my new lo-fi zone plate optic again last night. Not everyones cuppa tea, but I'm really enjoying playing with these images lately. It's quite liberating not to be transfixed with image sharpness, but rather to think purely composition.

I'll upload a mono variant to this, and perhaps a version without the border - I can't make my mind up about this!

Regards,

Adam

PS. There may be one already, but would there be interest in a lo-fi group?

Love this, agree completely that it's nice not to be so concerned with image sharpness - the blurriness adds to the photo anyway. I'd be interested in a lo-fi group defo

I like the cold glow in V2. But overall the colour palette is so simple, and the pink and blue merge in and out of each other so gently. V1 for me it has that dream-like intensity again.

Endless possibilities. I'm rather taken with V2 but the blending of colours in V1 is really lovely too.

Not my cup of tea but I can see the value in the whole exercise. I guess as well as making you concentrate purely on composition it gives you even more discipline in making sure things are out of shot when you can't see them on the camera when you press the button?

Thanks for the votes and comments.

Fraser: I know its not everyones cup of tea, but I'm a fan of the aesthetics of lo-fi images and find taking them both liberating and exciting. The lack of fidelity in some ways removes some of the requirement for the images to be representational of a recognisable reality. This could be codswallop - and I realise there are other ways to achieve the same end - but to me this is what makes it liberating. Somehow putting aesthetics before fidelity gives room for a greater sense artistic freedom. Of course this could just be where my head is at currently - a way of finding something new in scenes I have photographed 100's of times before, or pushing at the rigid boundaries imposed on me through my work and current studies... I don't really care, I'm just pleased to get a chance to play with something new.
