Happy July Fourth from Arkansas!
Bought an accessory for *Gamera the Sony camera — a telephoto lens. As far as optics go, it’s a case of you get what you pay for, and we didn’t pay much. However odd and distorting and color-changing the lens is, in the 48 hours we’ve had it, it shows some promise as a tool for creating, um, unusual images.
*We also bought a duplicate of Gamera off eBay, one whose flash works. This was a case of getting a whole lot more than you paid for, and I just love this camera.
Pinhole photography has always fascinated us. With the passing of film*, we wondered whether it could be done mechanically using a digital camera rather than using the software version that’s available on some cameras. After a little experimentation with shutter and aperture settings, a black piece of cardboard with pinhole in it, and a little (cringe) tape, we think we got it working, or some reasonable approximation, with no digital monkeying.
*We don’t really believe film is dead. Just taking a little nap.
So, our second weekly challenge entry is through a pinhole. (and below, more weekly challenge entries to love!)
