Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Bloom

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Bloom.

I had a few ideas for this challenge. Recently I have been photographing a selection of blooms as part of my testing various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera. Just recently the Orange Day-Lilies started blooming so they were added to the subjects used for testing the adapted lenses.

I then realised that it wasn’t the first time that I had photographed the Day-Lilies with adapted lenses.

Taken a couple of years ago with a 35mm Vivitar lens from the 1970s adapted to fit a DSLR.

Taken recently with the 7Artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens on a mirrorless camera.

Not really an adapted lens but?

 

Also taken recently with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.

  1. They are all so sharp, lovely day-lilies too. I am fascinated by the different lenses you used. Not that I understand how you adapted any of these!

    1. Thanks Sue. Quite a few of the mirrorless cameras have adapters available converting older DSLR and SLR camera mounts to the appropriate mount for the mirrorless camera. All my adapted lenses are manual focus and have aperture rings so it’s just like using a film SLR from the 1970s.
