My photography challenge for February was to take a photo every day using the Fisheye optic or Circular Fisheye lens. I was amazed at how close I could get to my subject so they are great for macro photography and the fisheye effect adds another dimension when used to full effect All twenty eight photos are below.
My January challenge was to take a photo every day using one of my Lensbaby Sweet optics. The shots are all below. Previously I have struggled with the Sweet 80 but during January, I seemed to use it the most.
I did cheat one day and use the Lensbaby Circular Fisheye lens.
While out on my walk, I went to see how the little bunch of snowdrops were doing. The last time I checked, they were beginning to come out. Today, despite being under the trees they were covered in snow.
Splat and I fell out several times on our morning walk. He’s still learning “sit” and “stay”. He gets “sit” but not “stay” so its almost impossible to do any macro/close up photography without the scene being destroyed as Splat is desperate to see what I’m looking at or to find a stray paw or nose in the image.
The frost has created some great patterns in the puddles over the last few days. The three shots below were the only ones I managed to capture without Splat’s help, obviously he’d found something more interesting to investigate.
I went for a wander on the Old Hills with my camera this afternoon. Most of yesterday’s snow was melting, the Hills were sodden and I got caught in a few showers but it was worth it. I found the first snowdrops, although they were barely coming out.
Its been a while since I’ve gone for a walk, just me and my camera.
This morning I went for a wander round Callow End, across the Old Hills and round St Cloud.
We explored some different paths along our usual route round the Old Hills this morning. The countryside is beautiful and we so often fail to appreciate what’s on our doorstep.
It was a lovely, sunny morning on Saturday and I chose to put my velvet 56 on my camera to wander round the Old Hills with the dogs. There’s always something to photograph either on the Old Hills or wandering back down Bush Lane. I hope you like the shots below.
Yesterday when I was playing with the Pin hole optic, I switch to the zone plate and take a photo in the same position. Here are the zone plate versions, plus a few extra which didn’t work with the pin hole optic.
I found out by accident that today is World Pin Hole Camera Day. As it was a lovely bright morning I took my Lensbaby Pin Hole/ Zone Plate optic when walking the dogs. It’s an optic I rarely use because the aperture is so small and it needs really bright light, or a tripod.
