While eating
Posted By: maleek, 02-07-2007, 09:30 AM

I just wanted to share one of my first photos with a new lens, taken with my manual focus m42 SMC Takumar 1:1.8 55 mm lens with my K100D. As a test of the largest aperture. It is hard to get the manual focus spot on, but it is very rewarding. And of course it is fascinating that I have the ability to use a lens that was manufactured in the 1960's on a modern day DSLR . The dogs name is Lisa by the way.

No flash or pp was applied.

I would rather have seen Lisa's face in this since she's trying to get some of your dinner.

Wish I had some of those old lenses for my k100

I'm with Photodan, would rather have seen the face of the furry moocher eyeballing the bowl of goodies.

Haha. That would have been something. But in order to do that, I would have had to break the rules of the household. To encourage this furry dog in her obsession with food. "Here, look this way, my food is way more interesting then his, eh?". Snap! We would have a very confused Lisa that would voiced her dissent over the relative calm of the meal, and I would be considered even more of a hassle to my family. A big no-no in other words.
