One Word Sunday

Simple

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Simple.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before remembering a photo from a recent walk around the neighborhood.

A simple image of Daylily leaves growing around the base of an Oak tree. Taken with a simple, base model mirrorless camera fitted with a simple and very cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to it.

Lichen Detail

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: April Close Up or Macro prompt.

I was considering one of the recent close ups of lichen on tree bark I had taken on a recent walk. As a result I decided to look back at some of my lichen photos taken on various walks in winter. Some of which were taken with unusual lenses such as a CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera.

Soft

This week Ann-Christine gives us the prompt Soft for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

My first thought was of some of the photos I had taken last year when I was experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. Mostly fast portrait lenses but also some CCTV lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.

A New Lens

This is my contribution to Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New prompt.

This is my latest unusual lens. A tiny 25mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I purchased it to replace one that the focusing mechanism keeps jamming on.

Photographed using a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I used my new LED studio lights with a red filter on one of the lights.

Jujubes

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: January Close Up or Macro.

Jujubes (or Ju-jubes or JuJubes, take your pick) photographed with a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. An experiment that didn’t really work out as expected. The lens doesn’t seem to produce the swirly, streaking corners and edges when close focused.
