Wordless Wednesday with last photo in January

Amore took this one while testing a toy he gave me for Christmas, a fish-eye + macro lens. Macro doesn’t wish to focus for some reason, or we are unable.

Bushboy’s rules are simple:

1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st January.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do.
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments.
5. Tag “The Last Photo”.

  1. Was he too close to the subject to focus? Even macro lenses have a minimum focusing distance and it’s sometimes easier to go full manual mode and manual focus while doing macro work. You’re the second person to say something about using a fish eye lens in January! I need to get mine out and play. It’s been ages since I used it.

    1. Deborah–you touched on something here–so if my macro shots come out a bit fuzzy, it could be because I am trying to get too close to my subject? Sometimes I really try to GET THERE, and the results is not great.

      1. Yes, check the specs on your lens and see what the minimum focusing distance is and it may be that you’re too close. It could be that while getting as close as you can you’re doing the macro rock…you know what I mean trying to get that razor thin margin of focus in focus by rocking your body or zooming with your body that you’re causing blurriness because of the rocking. I bought a macro rail to help with that and I use a tripod.

      2. P.S. Sometimes when shooting wide open only that razor thin slice of focus is in focus and the rest is soft and or blurry because you’re wide open with your aperture. Stopping down can help too. It depends on the look you’re trying to achieve.

      1. Oh, that isn’t good. Is it a third party lens? I wish we were closer so I could really see what happens. I hope you get it figured out and start having more fun with it.
        You’re probably at the top end of the learning curve with the camera now! 😀

      2. My camera does that too–not clicking. It means (according to my Nikon guide book) that your settings are not correct. I just fiddle around a bit, mostly with the aperature, and it works. Try that! If not, we’re heading to Deborah’s house to learn camera tricks and listen to macro rock. 😆😉

  2. Love the poem and the arty shots, especially the crazy Brina puppet and the fountain night shot.

    I will check out your other posts soon, but I thought I’d keep up with your Wordless Wednesdays at least! 🙂

  3. I like the approach of not worrying about the costs because you have saved the money for it! Good approach. When you pay with cash, credit ceases to be an issue. 🙂 Sounds like you had a blast. My favorite photo is the puppet. What a neat mom to have made it. –Curt

    1. Thank you, Curt! 🙂 I’m glad you liked the idea. What a great weekend that was, I miss times like these. The mom of the puppet girl is probably the best Slovenian puppeteer. That helps. 😉 Did you click on the photo to see the original post? There you can find the girl in photos and you can see if the likeness is there.
