Yesterday I tried the telephoto adapter + close up filter on my Nikon P6000. This technique allows much closer focusing of the telephoto lens. The depth of field is reduced, something very hard to do with a small lens/sensor camera. Here are a couple of test shots:
It is a good trick, provided you have the camera parts lying around. It is easy enough to pick up what you need. It doesn’t substitute for a dslr, but it kind of looks like it was shot with one.
It looked like it was going to be a gray day as they often are. I had a few ideas about shooting abandoned things. From the highway this morning, I stopped to see the clearing at sea. Infrared channel swap:
Straight out west (natural color point and shoot):
On the way to Gold Beach, I was lucky to catch the waning moon set above the Wedderburn Hills. For this shot, I put the 1.7 tele adapter on a 35-80m Nikon lens for a ~200mm equiv. moon shot.
South of town before I turned around and went back north.
There is an old building just north of Gold Beach that I remember from being a kid. As I returned in the years since, I imperceptibly took note of the old place falling down. Today I was bold enough to trespass and photograph.
This was channel swapped to get a blue (well sorta) sky, the rest is converted to black and white.
Later elsewhere, the end of the day. . . (that light!)
Can you see the darker rays emanating from where the sun was (~30 degrees from vertical)?
