Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Frost and a new lens


Frosty Hydrangea Frosty Hydrangea2

Thanks to my parents i now have a new lens in my collection. I don’t know yet which lens it is. It is an analog lens which doesn’t exactly fit to the Canon Eos 400D. But it is a bit smaller, so i can still use it. i just put it in front of the mirror and make images. It has a macro function which im already in love with after just a few shots! Bokehlicious and such sharpness!

So now im trying to find out if there is an extension or anything which i can use to connect this lens to the Canon. So far no luck, but im sure there is something out there. And otherwise i’ll just use my own little way. Bit unhandy, but at least i can use the lens πŸ™‚

Like to share these 2 images i made today of frost on the Hydrangea. Beautiful sight with the light touching parts of the leaves covered in frost.

  1. New lenses are so fun. Love the bokeh!

  2. wonderful, Pieter. I sometimes use a looking glass in front of my camera, which is very difficult to handle as I have to hold it in front of the camera. But it doesn’t matter. Hope you find some ring for your camera.

  3. hehe this works kind of the same as a looking glass Mitza πŸ™‚ Gotta hold the lens and press it against the camera and then manually adjust the lens and/or depth to get maximum focus. Fun to do ofcourse, but not always the most practical πŸ™‚

  4. I like these. I have to show you my favorite frost picture.

  5. These are great images. Very sharp!
