The pendulum might eventually settle near the middle again – photography and archery
For a while there in 2018-19 I got completely obsessed with putting vintage lenses on the front of a modern digital camera, and everything was fair game to be photographed. At that time my Falco Storm flatbow was getting a lot less attention than it deserved, and consequently I was getting a bit less archery/meditationContinue reading “The pendulum might eventually settle near the middle again – photography and archery”
Oh kangaroos. Are you judging me?
Every time I go for a walk around here I feel like I’m being judged for my competencies in walking without falling over, picking up dog shit, etc. One day they are for sure going to hold up white cards with a score out of 10.
ARCHERY AND FORAGING – GETTING BACK TO SOME NEGLECTED FOREST CRAFTS!
These last 2-3 years photography and roaming with the dogs have pretty much supplanted a few of my other outdoor passions. In beautiful autumnal sunshine, two of them got a bit of love today. But it works on YouTube
TRIPOD RENOVATION COMPLETE …
In May last year I blogged about replacing the head on my Manfrotto 055PROB aluminium tripod with relatively inexpensive Sirui levelling base and panning head parts. As opposed to junking the whole thing and buying a new expensive tripod. https://mikrokosmfotos.art/2019/05/04/upgrading-my-trusty-tripod/ That has proven to be a great improvement, and it’s such a better experience usingContinue reading “TRIPOD RENOVATION COMPLETE …”
FROM FILM TO DIGITAL – FOUR TIMES & COUNTING
Or, a short photographic history of Lawrie Conole, and a mini review of the Sigma SD Quattro camera PART 1 I’ve been on the journey from film to digital a few times over the years. You’d think by now I might have worked out where I want to be on the photographic spectrum, between completelyContinue reading “FROM FILM TO DIGITAL – FOUR TIMES & COUNTING”
I have been slothful, but not completely
Sure, I don’t write here very often. That’s true. A week back though I had this piece published on a UK photography webpage/blog:
Upgrading my trusty tripod
OK, I’m talking about tripod heads. There are a few reasons why it matters to me and might be relevant to anyone else: Some classic lenses are really heavy (–> tripod) Some people use classic lenses to stitch panoramic landscapes together (–> tripod) I have a near classic set of tripod legs and it’s onlyContinue reading “Upgrading my trusty tripod”
In the process of relocating a bit further North …
I haven’t had much to say here recently, but that will change, soon. The weather is getting interesting again for landscape photography, and I’m about to move towns. #kynetonphotographer will soon be #castlemainephotographer …
An unexpected left turn
The Industar 50mm lens is a year older than me, and the Zorki-4 camera it’s attached to is a year younger. Inside, a roll of CineStill BWxx 250 film. Does that mean the photos are going to look like scenes from ‘Raging Bull’ or ‘Stranger Than Paradise’ – both shot on the parent Double-X cinematicContinue reading “An unexpected left turn”
