7/52-16 a day with the Vivitar 50mm f/1.8

Well, I definitely broke a cardinal rule of the 7/52 this week… I only shot for the project on one day. I could make excuses—and the ones I have would be convincing and you would likely give me a pass, given the terrifyingly fabulous week  I had—but I won’t. Suffice it to say, I was simply lazy and allowed other thoughts to crowd my mind, and allowed this crowding to occupy most of my time.

Anyway.

I strapped the Vivitar 50mm f/1.8 (Cosina-made) onto the D7000 via a reversing ring late on Sunday, and then didn’t take the camera out of the bag until Wednesday afternoon, in an attempt to shed some of my worry and relax for a bit. I wandered around the apartment complex grounds, kneeling, stooping, and crawling on the ground, looking for various bugs. I didn’t find the expected ones, and so switched to flowers, but continued to keep an eye out for bugs.

Most of these received very mild adjustments in Lightroom, or a slight crop. The square-cropped one took the most abuse, but even it saw less than 2 minutes of slider play.

D7000. Vivitar 50mm f/1.8 (Cosina). ISO800, various shutter speeds (AP mode), all f/3.5ish (I think: ignore the exif on this, as the D7000 couldn’t see or feel the aperture, given the reversed nature of the lens, and anyway it’s an M43 mount lens).
