This is a sign on the front of a local bank branch in Brisbane, I was waiting for a friend to make a deposit inside, waiting for someone interesting to be James
This couple came out of the branch about the same time as my friend, so I quickly snapped them. Its got a little more motion blur than I would like…but thats life I guess!
Almost time to get myself an AF prime for this sorta stuff i think, just have to convince my fiance. I’m sure she will go for it! haha
Here is another example of using Startrails.exe for something other than startrails. This shot was taken almost a year ago now, its made of many 30 sec exposures stacked together to get the multiple trails of planes coming in to land, and taking off.
This shot is another example of using startrails for adding elements into a shot
A panning shot of a speedy walker Took the DSLR out for some street shots yesterday instead of the little Canon. IQ difference is really something else, lol
Canon is super grainy at ISO 200, this shot at ISO 800 is way better.
Taken with the Pentax K200D and Pentax M 28mm f2.8 at f11, using zone focus method for focusing.
This is the gecko that came visiting while I was writing the last post in the macro photography series. He was only a baby, probably about 20mm long in total.
I shot this using the reversed 28mm lens mounted to my K200D. I used the on-board flash for some lighting. I took the shot at f22.0, but was unable to focus at f22, so I used my little finger to activate the aperture control lever on the lens (remember it was mounted reverse so you can access it!) to hold the aperture open while I composed and focused the shot. Then released the lever just before firing the shutter.
You can see by the size of the dirt and fibres in the shot that this is at quite high magnification. If you have a good 28 to 35mm lens you can reverse mount I highly recommend buying yourself a cheap reverse adapter and giving it a go. It may take a little while to get used to the short working distance (distance from lens to subject) but you can really get up close with lots of stuff!
