More Krappiness

December 13th, 2008

DSC 8391 More KrappinessI’ve spent a good deal of time this past week looking through my old photos for things I’ve done with various kinds of “Krappy Kameras” to find things to send to the juried show in New York. I have way more than I can send, but I think this one is going to make the cut. That’s Rachel on the coast of Maine back in 2003. The camera was a Nikon D100 with a 100mm Sima single-element soft-focus lens. I’ve had that lens for many, many years. It might be considered a forerunner of the Lensbabies that are so popular (and so overpriced) these days. This lens is a simple tube inside a tube with a big single lens mounted in the middle. The aperture can be changed by placing pieces of plastic with different size openings on the front of the assembly. Focusing is done by sliding the tubes back and forth. It’s an f/2 lens, but I usually use the f/4 aperture insert to get a bit more sharpness. Take it down to f/8 and it actually gets pretty sharp, in an old-fashioned sort of way.

There’s much too much going on in my life right now for me to be spending much time updating this blog…but it’s all good stuff and I’m looking forward to a very nice Christmas this year.

I’ll be back here now and then to post updates.
