Shiny and reflective.

Test CD Water Drop Macro

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.

I made a movie




Test Time Lapse

It’s been a while since I was interested in moving images, but this week I’ve seen five or six really really impressive time lapse movies (check my tweets this week for the best one). Inspirted (or intrigued) I wondered whether this was something I could do myself so I had a go. I know it’s not pretty, but as a proof of concept it was fairly successful. Watch this space for a proper one in the not too distant future.
