(no subject)

last sunday evening i noticed jupiter saying hello, just as the sun was going down. i had a 200mm lens with me. this photo was at f 2.8 about 1/125 second at iso 800.

The accidental jewels

One of my favorite types of photographs are those you take not trying to create a masterpiece. We've all seen them. You're just hanging out with friends or family, taking fun little snapshots, and when you review them you're like "Wow, that came out really really well!"

i've been into photography for about 7 years now. i took 2 years of photography in high school (a total of 3 classes). i work a little on the side, doing outdoor portraits (i'd set up a studio at home, but our lease forbids such things), but my real passion is macro.

i have two cameras. one is a Pentax ZX-30, with a promaster 28-110mm a/f lense. i bought it around 5 years ago, and i use it for any paying jobs i happen to get. my other camera is a Mamiya/Sekor from the 1970's. all-metal body, screw-mount lenses (i have a 28mm, a 55mm, and an 80-200mm), and completely manual. it's much more fun to use than then Pentax. =) i also have a bellows attachment, which i used today.

none of this is photo-shopped or edited/enhanced in any way, except the last picture. no filters were used during this shoot.

all photos here taken with the Mamiya and bellows.

Of course, I'd be happy to sell prints if anybody wants them =D
