Canon on Lomo Action!

Canon on Lomo Action!
Here’s my lovely new Canon 580EXII Speedlite dwarfing a Lomo LC-A. The Speedlite was triggered by a cable improvised with croc-clips (you can see it in the bottom right). The light then triggered a Lumopro flash off to the right. The Canon was dialed down to 1/128th and the Lumopro to 1/64th.

Pinhole "Lens"

Pinhole
Thought I should explain the pinhole pictures I’ve been uploading. A body cap with a hole drilled through it, a piece of foil taped over the hole and a tiny hole in the foil made with a pin. The small hole means not much light gets through so long exposures are required. In theory the depth of field should be huge but in practice nothing is in focus. More experimentation is needed.

Primes!

Primes!
I got an m42 thread to Canon EF adaptor and have since been collecting nice old primes. This was a 1 second exposure lit with two flashes: the one on the camera and another kind of above and pointing behind the lenses to make sure you can see the lovely rug backdrop through them.

A Cautionary Tale

A Cautionary Tale
Don’t drop the lens when reverse lens macroing! I thought my kit lens was a goner when I dropped it about a metre on to concrete. The front focusing element jammed at a nasty angle. Fortunately the optics were unharmed. I managed to take it apart and free the jammed part. It works, it just sounds a bit different when the focusing motor runs. This is a reverse lens macro with my Canon 50mm f1.8 primary. I managed to keep hold of it this time.
