8mm fun
Lens: Rokinon 8mm Camera: K10D 
Posted By: deaning, 10-18-2012, 09:40 PM

Last weekend went on a camera club outing and was a bit over shooting wildflowers.

Joel and the chooks



There was some old machinery lying around and I have found the 8mm to be perfect, whatever this is I have no idea...

great perspectives, especially like the first one, how low can you go?

I bloody love these shots. I've simply GOT to get one of those Samyang/Rokinon 8mm lenses (and the 85 f1.4...).

I like these as well, especially I'm just discovering ultra-wide, they are very helpful. I like the disc in the last one where the grasses finally won that battle, and what I'll take to be an allusion to Neil Young in the title of the middle one.
I'd love to see more with your 8 mm.

Cheers! I bought it originally for 360x180 panoramas but have found it is very versatile especially for my fetish for old machinery.

Thanks John, next shoot is this weekend and I have club members scouting out old machinery for me, I love rust and Neil.

Wonderful fun shots to view, and that last one is very artistic too. Being a member of a photography club that goes on outings must be quite motivational. Up here in the boonies I rely on the Pentax Forum, but if there was a club, I would join. Thanks for sharing!

The third image is a harrow, used to till the ploughed earth. It usually had a weighed slab to the rear to smooth it down once it was cut into smaller chunks. Several repetitions were required to make a field plantable.

Nice shots! I like all of them. I saw a bunch of old equipment and parts lying around in Bodie and, inspired by your photos, will post a thread on those.

Thanks Tess, a friend started a facebook group a couple of months ago and we now have 70 members. The outings are very informal and fantastic fun, 7 of us took to the coast yesterday and it is just great meeting likeminded people and learning how others see the world through the lens.
