Time Pieces
Lens: D-FA 100mm Macro WR Camera: K-3 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 3s 
Posted By: Vylen, 11-10-2013, 03:36 AM

Finally decided to take a proper photo after playing around with my K-3 and learning about settings


Original size : Time Pieces | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I took this sort of photo before with my K20D but I thought it was worth revisiting to see how different it would be to take macro shots like this...

And for sure, it's completely different... live-view with focus peaking makes it magnitudes easier! Knowing exactly where the focus was (at the number 8) meant more time to worry about the placement of the pieces!

I'm definitely loving this camera

Very nice.

Reminds me a bit of Dali's Persistence of Memory.

That's a good picture, Vylen. May I ask what lens you used for it?

Thanks everyone for the comments

I used my trusty D-FA Macro 100mm F2.8 WR... my favourite lens

Great shot, it reminds me of my one and only attempt at watch repairs.

Haha, give it another shot - if it doesn't work out, it could turn into a great photo op

I really like the shadows in this shot. Well done!

Taken so long ago, but I do remember the light source was just a an ordinary desk lamp, and that I did spend a while positioning it around the time pieces and changing the angles/heights.
