I haven’t had much of a chance to get out and play, but here’s one to get going…
I’ve finally entered the DSLR market with an Olympus E-400. With the aid of a suitable adapter this will let me use my original OM lenses.
It’s been a while, but there’s a new item over at Wideplace
I’m not sure I’ve quite got the hang of doing a good mono conversion from a colour original, but I quite like this one…
While I was out digging the garden yesterday evening this little chap came down to help himself to a worm that I had surfaced. He didn’t seem at all bothered by my presence. So, out came the camera and the mini tripod. I set the focus to about 12 inches, and placed a worm at the appropriate distance from the camera. Eventually I got the shot, but it was getting dark, and the composition leaves something to be desired.
So, next time, it’s out with the proper tripod, a greater zoom to blur the background, and I need to get the bird onto the handle of a spade in order to get the perfect shot.
I went out with Stuart yesterday evening around sunset to take a few pictures of the pier and bridge. Shooting into the sun made for an interesting time processing some of the shots. Here are a couple that I like.
