Ah, the explanation. Excellent stuff. Love it.
Two more with the pinhole lens.
No, it doesn't do magic tricks with perspective, it's just that there's some weird stuff in our garden!
I am reminded of Alice in Wonderland.
A perfect description. Wonderfully surreal and the pinhole accentuates that perfectly.
I take it you only take one bag of sugar these days though, Chris!
I didn't get this shape by having a sweet tooth - I did it the hard way.
The postman was good to me this morning.
He brought me a teeny, tiny 6x6 camera - Voigtlander Perkeo I
That is small.
How anyone could fit a medium sized anything in there is way beyond me!
You don't have to fold the film as well do you, Chris?!
Maybe that's it, Pete.
I mean, look how they managed to cram that lens in there. Perhaps folding the film backwards and forwards like that will help.
I snapped up an old Konica Autoreflex A in a charity shop in Kendal the other week. The lens is a 52mm f/1.8 and a suitable adaptor for it arrived yesterday. Out for a walk with it today...
I like this lens very much!
I'll be loading some film into the body some time, to see what I can manage with that.
During my walk with the Konica, I harvested some teeny tiny flowers and, on bringing them home I set about snapping them with some extension tubes.
What a great and productive day I have had!
I learned a lot, not least, some valuable lessons about lighting small objects.
In the kitchen with a macro lens, off camera flash and sometimes diffusing it with a bottle of extra virgin olive oil.
They look abstract. You are giving me new ideas. Off tp the kitchen then .
Great. Can't wait to see the results!
Some nice detail shots of the barrow etc, Chris and I really like the tones.
I like the initial macros too: the background adds some nice contrast. The second series are grate too.
