  1. Congratulations Polly.... FUJI
  2. Further to my study very early this morning of Art Macro studies of flowers, I decided this afternoon, to explore further using a very different DIY lens.... the tiny vintage Cine Camera lens this time opened right up to F2 to ensure the shallowest DOF.. no extension rings just slight crops of my frame-filling observations.... so what you see....I saw through the viewfinder. A further study of different colour Backgrounds might follow... pastel-paper perhaps ? Cheryl and Polly should be interested in these....it was their joint post that motivated me so strongly this mor

    Forgive me ladies for intruding on your thread.... but, you pair have fired up my creative/inventive mode....after studying a slideshow of Kathleen’s work, and then watching part of the YouTube interview; I took myself into the garden at 07:20 to shoot a flower series especially for you . i had rightly thought that my super-cheap-easy to make Art/Macro set up might achieve similar results.....here then are my first efforts whilst still half asleep. once I get a creative idea it is difficult to stop my mind working overtime to resolve issues. My lens is simply one from a vintage

    Well done you Denis.....enjoy every minute...... Just what we used to do, from our 1973 VW Camper. FUJI
  7. Once again you hit the middle of the target Paul.... perfect focus on the eyes, the golden rule of portrait shooting.... The fact that this portrait is of a very flighty fly makes no difference, your eye focus is spot on..... A virtual Award from me.... FUJI

  12. Very well done John......a well deserved win. FUJI
  13. A direct comparison here..... a friend’s very expensive 60mm - F2.8 Olympus Macro lens Vs. my circa £25 DIY set up of a tiny vintage film camera lens stuck into a bottle top and an M42 to M/4/3 adapter. The first is from my DIY set up.... The second from the Olympus lens.... if anyone has an EXIF checker they can tell me if I have them the right way round please.. Both versions look very good to me..... just an incredible difference in costs .... ... something to ponder for the macro enthusiasts on here.... More comparisons to foll
