Photo365 – Day 273 – The lemon’s last moment

This was a tricky one and I don’t think I pulled it off…but that’s for you to decide. I was drinking a can of lemonade…the type you get abroad that has a really refreshing taste as it’s packed with real lemons (well 16%) I spotted them in Sainsburys and it’s always one of the things […]

Photo365 – Day 272 – things are looking up

Well the things are an iphone set to hipsatmatic with colour infrared film and a fisheye lens. Yesterday I looked down on me in a record shop. Today I look up at the library roof. The fisheye lens crams a lot into the frame.

Photo365 – Day 271 – record collector

Today I met my music idol – Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree. He was at a signing of his new album at my favourite record shop – Record Collector in Sheffield. I’ve been shopping their for 35 years. Porcupine Tree haven’t played Sheffield in ages (well certainly not in the last 10 years) so it […]

Photo365 – Day 270 – fly agaric

Taken today on a quick visit to Clumber Park in search of fungi. There were lots of flat topped fly agarics but not many of these closed ones. This time I not only took the closer shots but some more environmental ones like this. The 100mm has a good rounded aperture which gives great out […]

Photo365 – Day 269 – flat

I’m still playing with the toy lens + 10 macro adaptor on the Olympus EP2. This is straight out of the cameras – a setting on a hosepipe multi spray nozzle. I set the white balance to cloudy to get the warm tone.

Photo365 – Day 268 – leather bag

I’m really enjoying my new found super blurry close up lens creation featuring the Toy Lens and Macro adaptor lens attached to an Olympus EP2. The combination gives incredibly shallow depth of field with vignetting and unusual bokeh. This is the curve of a leather bag.

Photo365 – Day 267 – leaf

As you may know from reading some of my blog entries I like to mess around with unsual lens combinations. This morning I attached the Toy lens onto the Olympus EP2 and then screwed in a +10 macro lens. This macro lens is part of an old fisheye macro converter. It gives good sharpness in […]

Photo365 – Day 266 – ladybird

I was about to set the camera up to photograph a tomato that had fallen of my badly looked after tomato plant and a ladybird scuttled past. So I took a grab shot. I could have enticed the critter to do a few more takes to perfect it but I liked the spontaneity. So here […]
