I'll probably try this again sometime down the road, as I'm not thrilled with the results. I think this happens often with photographers and other artists. Speaking for myself though, I'll envision what I want to achieve in my head and then set up the shot. It's pretty rare to get the results to match with what I saw in my mind, but when I do I'm pretty excited about the photo.


New Lens Test

I've been wanting a macro lens for a while now, and I recently came into possession of a dedicated macro with 1:1 capability. I find myself constantly looking around for unique objects and surfaces to photograph with this lens, but for now here's a few of my first shots with it.

The photo below had a 2x teleconverter. I removed the teleconverter for the second one below.


It's been a long time since I've loaded film into a camera, but recently having acquired another old Pentax film camera I wanted to test it out. Having no other film in the house except a couple rolls of 400 ISO expiring nearly seven years ago, I decided to go ahead and give it a try during Christmas time. I was especially excited to use the film camera when Santa personally paid a visit to the family on Christmas Eve. Below are two examples from the roll, the first being my favorite by far.
