What simplistic features, with MUSE three basic components:
- 37mm Threads
- Focusing collar
- Lens mount
- Aperture disks
AND LOADS OF FUN!!
Now if you’re a Nikon lover, your camera will need to be in manual mode and check the manual for the adjustment for the diopter- if needed.
Using the camera in slightly different way holding the camera and lens focus using the collar, pull in or push out once focused use the front collar to tilt to the left or right up or down until your sweet spot is found.
For a pure creative indulgence you cant go past this baby lens, the endless possibilites attracted me, there are no hard and fast rules..

It’s like a comfortable pair of old shoes. I’m happy, the camera seems chirper and we are back snapping landscapes and objects close up with a nice DOF.
Here are some putting in the hay shots.

Don't they say working with kids and animals are challenging times for a photographer?
That can be the case, but I believe you have to be creative, quick and spontaneous - go with the flow.
In this case my subject grabbed my camera and took this photo of her self.
I simply enhanced her eyes and teeth to give her a surreal look.
With the calf, I got down to the same level and zoomed in quick and took the photo.The other photo I simply tilted the camera and got a long titled shot.
I then placed a beautifier filter through Mr Photoshop and I have a great photo memory.
Have fun, play, enjoy your subjects and your photos will demonstrate the fun and spontaneity.

I love marketing and to produce promotional items, it’s a great time..
I love the design part, working out a theme, a look a feel to work alongside you and your product.
I admit its tricky to step away from your business and objectively look inwards, say to create a marketing and promotional strategy but you can do it..
as Nike say "Just do it! "
The pull up floor banner came from http://www.quickcolourprint.com.au/ and it looks smart.

And he took my camera, which he has had limited usage of and I thought you know he may get one or to shots but he took some great shots.
Here is a panna, for this shot I simply cropped the helicopter out of the shot.
The next shot I left the helicopter in to give perspective.
The other is a lovely micro flower shot I took with a fellow photographer.
We were playing around in the kitchen with lighting and using lunchbox lids as diffusers.

How fast does it go, how many kms to the litre do you get?
Well it’s the same with a new lens.
What brand?, what is the mm range on it?
Is it macro?
Is it zoom?, does it come with VR or camera shake stopping features?, did you get any filters?, what can it do, are you happy with it!??
How does it work with your camera, how does it rate with another brand?
Oh I'm getting dizzy....
From one camera lover to another - a nice new piece of glass is another opportunity to explore and try new subjects.
To enjoy and see how they interact with you, your camera and your veiwer as you showcase the story you are trying to tell in each shot.
Call me a romantic...a thrill seeker of the frozen moment in time....thats me!!
