Forgive me, photography, for I have sinned. I haven't been a great photographer over the past few weeks.
I've been working on my car, well, because car season, and I haven't touched my cameras in a while. I've been taking film shots, and I have quite a few that I'd love to share, but I need to scan them in first. I love seeing that you guys have been posting here on a regular basis, and expect me to make my triumphant return, just as soon as I manage to get a dedicated photography PC up and running. My measly Ultrabook simply can't hack it anymore. I reinstalled Windows on it, and haven't gotten around to installing any editing software yet because of the very tiny (128GB) hard drive in it.
However, the moment I get another PC up and running, expect to be bombarded by posts from pictures I've taken over the past few months (I have flash drives littered about with RAWs that I haven't even thought about touching yet), and as soon as I can get some scanning done, expect a lot of film posts from me (I've been absolutely in love with the Ilford XP2 Super 400 that I've been shooting with my AE-1).
As consolation for my absence and lack of contribution lately, here's a fun trick I've been using over the last few days for a quick'n'dirty macro lens hack:
- Focus the lens to MFD
- Take the lens OFF the camera
- Turn on live view
- Play with distancing the lens from the object and your camera from the lens.
Don't try this in a dusty environment, have fun, and keep shooting!
