Quiet Thursday: Looking to the Moon
Here we are again and it is Thursday again. It has been a good week so far and I have got lots of work done. On my facebook page and in my email box are lots of suggestions for names for the new magazine. When I get a big list I am going to do a poll so you can vote. I don’t want to make the decision on my own.
On another note last Saturday night was another Blood Moon or lunar eclipse. I actually got this one this time as the sky was clear for the whole period here. It was fantastic, especially after the last one. We didn’t get a full eclipse here, but I’m not complaining.
I took lots of photos with the Tamron 150-600mm lens that I have at the moment from Maxwell International Australia and it was great for this. I had it set up on my tripod. I took photos from the start, so the full moon and then right through to when the eclipse was on the other side, then I went to bed. This time I just set the tripod up out my front door and did it there.
Then the next morning I spent the morning and much of the afternoon with a good friend who was in town. We had breakfast out and then we went into Banyule Flats to take photos with my macro and her 35mm lens. It was great wandering around. She also had another camera with her. I don’t know what it was, some Fuji Instax camera. It was like a Polaroid camera. I only took three shots, but I thought I would share them with you.
I like the effect and as I was looking at them I got thinking. Could I imitate them. I still have to figure some things out, but I did have a go with one of the photos I took with the 35mm lens.
So I guess the question is would you really be able to tell the difference if I didn’t tell you. As I said, it isn’t quite there, but I am pretty happy with it. I will have to keep trying. I will let you know what I did when I work out what to do.
I’m leaving it there now for today. I have a busy day ahead, have to go to the city. I hope you get to have a quiet day.
