Not sure why, but seem to have become slightly obsessive about reflections recently. Haven’t touched the camera for over a week and cabin fever has not irreversibly set in. Been meaning to hve a crack at these things since the storm in a teacup shot (see my Flickr stream) to try and capture some clouds etc. reflected in the water. for the last two weeks the skies have been a monotonous grey, so as the sun attempted to shine this afternoon I felt obliged to have a go at this.
Regrettably, my cd tray only had this knackered old thing in (it’s got more scratches than a cat’s scratching post) and I didn’t get the tripod out, but went OK from a test perspective.
For those that care, this was taken hand-held, with the Canon 50mm f1.8 plus 36mm kenko extension tube.
Been really busy in the last couple of weeks with one thing and another and the photography has taken a bit of a back seat. I’m pleased to say that with the rather inclement weather, both the mojo and the enthusiasm are back with a bang. Been out and about with the sledges and the kids over the last two days and got a bagful of shots to go with the frostbite.
Not a bad way to spend a birthday
More extension tube attempts ended up in the bin this lunchtime. Had plenty of flowery thingies from in the garden, and a couple of things I found laying about indoors.¬† Not the greatest shot in the world, though with the flash off camera¬† I think I’ve got the Depth of Field issues sorted now !
Was going to try a couple of additional ones of this, bouncing the flash to eliminate some of the shadows. Unfortunately, I ate it instead.
Why is it you can never find a snail or a spider when you need one?
