Today I had about an hour to play with in between varies chores and social obligations. I grabbed my D60 and an old Nikon 35mm film camera lens and set off to get some snaps in. I do not know about all cameras but when you mate a manual film camera lens with a modern DSLR the light metering can be less than optimum. So I snagged an app for my iPod that came in very handy today. The first photo is an unedited but slightly cropped shot from today. The second is what the app looks like on my iPod. I will try it out with my extension tubes as I shot macro later this Spring.
I took this photo of our cat Momma Cat with an old 50mm lens off an old Nikon film camera. I used it on my D60 and set the exposure a little low for effect. Unfortunately the metering, or my interpretation of it, with this lense on was off a click or two but I still like the shot. Momma is close to twenty-years old so it is fitting an elegant lady should have her photo taking through the fine glass of an old lense.
The snow, though lingering, is in its final meltdown as we speak. I am glad I got several good captures yesterday and a good walk in with The Boy. The first shot is one of the branches on our sycamore tree. The second is of a seed-pod on said tree. As I was taking the last shot the temps were coming up and all the snow on the branches were coming down. I liked the effect but I also was a little nervous because I did not has my lens rag with me and needed to dry it off quickly. Thankfully these shots were taken on our place, so a dash in to the house and the lens was taken care of in short order.
This evening post features two captures I took late this afternoon. I wasn’t going to post again but thought mrsbearfoot @ Enjoying Life Wherever It Takes Us might like the fowl shot. You should visit her place, I think you will like it. The second shot is of some vegetation that is not dead. Love the color it added to my day.
