Polaroid?

I booked time in the studio to practice with my new (old) Pentax 645N II film camera. I didn’t really have anything important in mind to shoot but I wanted to get time playing with the lights and learning to use the camera. In order to test the exposures I was metering for, before shooting with the expensive film I shot with my digital camera, set to the same ISO, shutter speed, aperture and equivalent focal length. In olden times, a studio photographer might have shot a polaroid in the same way.

Saturday morning I happened to notice early Spring morning light streaming in on an eclectic collection of items on the dining table. Hence the still life images that make up the next several posts.

I shot this with the Fujinon 60mm f2.4 macro. Even though I wasn’t particularly aiming for it, that’s some very smooth bokeh.

What a difference a month makes

We went gallery hopping a month ago and captured resplendent Autumn colors. Last weekend it was a different story at the same location.
