And this is just what the title suggests… In keeping with recent 365 photos, this is me mixing light sources and playing with color: on the left, a minimaglite; on the right an LED Lightbar thing; all around tungsten-balanced cfl and afternoon diffused sunlight. Pretty! D7000. Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G, reversed. ISO100, 1/5th (AP mode), f/5.6 […]
A second set of attempts (see 365.15 for the first set…) to capture my right eye with a reversed 75-150, this time with flash to minimize the effects of the eye shake focus, but still fail. I tried reversed, reversed with 52mm of extensions, reversed with 104mm of extension, and mounted straight, but with 104mm […]
In honor of the 3 full Months I’ve been on this now, today’s 365 project comes in 3 parts… Part 1: the Original D7000. 24mm f/2.8 ai, reversed, on 104mm of extensions, and mounted on a GorillaPod and attempting to focus on the dust on the MacBook Pro, when I scooched when I should’ve leaned […]
After making 150-odd pictures with the 24mm f/2.8 ai, reversed and on 104mm of extension, and having extreme difficulty with composition and framing, and cursing the quick grip ball head and its extreme lack of precision (and actually quite desperate for a wider angle), I went back to the old standby: the 75-150mm f/3.5 E […]
I’m feeling a sort of Doc Brown vibe here… And just not trying for two days in a row… Oh well. I’m feeling rushed and hurried, and for no good reason, and I’m taking it out on the 365 project. For shame. D7000. Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 E Series, reversed. ISO100, 2 seconds, f/8.
Yes, it’s a bad title. And, yes, it’s a mediocre photo (at best). But I’m in a bit of a hurry today. Well, not a hurry, exactly, but this is all I can do today. I did find out that the 75-150mm E Series can achieve a reproduction ratio of 2.4:1 when reversed and stacked […]
More fun with the new (old) lens! This one begged to go b/w from the start, since the subject looks b/w already to my eyes, but goes green & yellow at these magnifications/scales/distances. Fun, if wildly dusty, times. Yes, I cleaned the sensor again last night, and, yes, it got dust on it from merely […]
