Experiments with my new lens - continued...

Both of these are low light photos taken in bulb mode. Taken in a fully dark room and bulb mode, I used a flashlight to throw light where needed.

  1. @Chintan I guess the first one appeals more to the mind and the second to the eyes. :)
    Thanks.

  6. @Arti, @Abu, @Kiran, @jitadiya, @Shanoj: Thanks!

    @bala: Glad that you observed! Actually I've moved the flash light around the edges of the CD few times to get this effect. I must actually credit an article I had read some time back mentioning this technique. Thanks.

  7. Which camera and lens did you use Tanmay to produce such an effect

  8. @umesh I used Canon Rebel XTi camera and 50mm f/1.8 lens. But any camera with bulb mode and lens can make this effect.

  9. Amazing! Must have had tough time with the second one. It has come out well.
    Like the the theme of the first one. That makes the click a lot more meaningful.

  10. Congrats for moving to the Prime Lens! Even I am planning to buy one, especially for portraits. Looking at the pictures you have created using even in low lights, I am now just waiting for the next salary ! :)

  11. I can't comment on the photography or the camera, but I loved your caption of the first one and the second one reminded me of the bakelite music discs that we used to have before cassettes and CDs came on the scene. Maybe it is one that has got a makeover from creative hands?

  12. @leoPaw: It took some trials, but it's not tough.

    @Shadows Galore: Thanks. The lens is sharp. I've not used the low light or dof capability though (both of these are at f/22). I was just playing to get comfortable with the lens.

    Got this mostly for portraits and indoor photography, as you rightly said. And it's one of the least expensive, much less than the f/1.4.

    Cheers!

  13. @zephyr Bakelite discs, 45 rpm... nostalgic. :) I listened to them when my father's phonogram was not broken.

    I've only cropped the picture to the square size. The colors look unnatural don't they? Nature and the world is full of surprises!
