Photo365 – Day 234 – zoom dandelion

This is actual an old photo (transparency) but rephotographed today using a new adaptor I bought for the Olympus E-P2. The adaptor converts the micro four thirds mount into a t2 mount…and onto that I attached an old Ohnar Zoom slide duplicator. The dandelion was a portrait shot cropped due to the effective 2x magnification of the sensor and using the zoom feature of the duplicator. As I made the exposure I adjusted the zoom to give a bit of motion blur resulting in a more surreal seed head. I also applied the cyanotype preset in Lightroom.

Photo365 – Day 187 – natural filter

On what will probably be my next to last poppy shot I decided to position the camera so that a poppy head was filtered by a foreground poppy petal.

The long lens (500mm Tamron) has thrown the front petal totally out of focus resulting in a colour cast over the entire photo but no detail. So the background focused poppy head is sharp with a colour wash over the top.

Cokin used to sell a filter that had a colour effect similar to this so I’m pleased with the natural (free) result.
