New Year... New Lens
Sometimes, you need a new perspective. My family bought me a new camera lens for the holidays. As all three of the pinball chaos readers clearly see, I am still improving my pinball photography. Well, maybe they don't, in fact, see it clearly, because I am still not as good as I should be for someone running a website.
I am working a bit with depth of field settings, so most of the time I am using extreme settings, which aren't great. But, I figure I will learn which end of the spectrum is better, when I more confidently know the settings for the middle. The plastic protectors are a great idea to add to any machine!
I used it to shoot some cool mods and up close images from a Guardians of the Galaxy, along with some interesting sculpted mods. Let's take a look at the Ronan's Hammer mod and the Awesome Tape Player .
Why shouldn't Groot's mouth be green. Light it up with some green! The lens really picks up some of that detail in the Groot head sculpt.
Now, we'll focus in closely, and then pan back a bit.
These were all shot on a Canon EFS 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM lens. It looks like this, when the manufacturer takes the photo of the lens.
I think it's a fun lens, because it has a light on it. I haven't needed the light yet, because I've been shooting pinball lights, but I like unnecessary features and lights. So, this is a winner in my book. Next, I'll do a bit of video with it.
