For my next trip.

Hi everyone,

For my next trip I’m going to have a “prime” day and only take some of my most under-used lenses with me. I’ve chosen to taken my M.Zuiko 12mm f/2, a lens that has had very little use over the years, my 20mm Lumix f/1.7 which I’ve only used relatively few times and the same is true of my M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 lens. I’m also going to take one of my tiny Lumix 12-32mm lenses as a backup and I’ll take my Olympus PEN E-P5 camera for a stroll around and see what I can find. I have considered selling these lenses along with my M.Zuiko 25mm f/1.8 and 17mm f/1.8 lenses but maybe I can find some, albeit occasional use for them.

Kind regards

Leigh

Further experiments with polarised light

Hi everyone,

Here are a few shots I took with the two LED lights fitted with linear polarising filters placed at approx. 45 degrees to the vertical on mini tripods, either side of the object and a circular polarising (CPL) filter on the macro lens.

The setup, apologies for the slightly blurry shot, taken handheld in poor lighting.
Polariser in position 1.
CPL rotated 90 degrees clockwise.
CPL rotated 180 degrees clockwise.
CPL rotated 270 degrees clockwise.
CPL rotated to a position that I liked the best.
An earlier shot, adjusted to my tastes.

Kind regards

Leigh
