The donation of this camera was all the more wonderful
as it came with a Takumar 105mm telephoto and close up bellows as well
as a box of other interesting accessories. Extreme close up photography
was something I had never really tried., so this donation supplied the
perfect excuse. So at right we have this hover fly taken with the 105mm,
racked out a fair way on the bellows and tripod mounted, it was a bit
breezy - so maybe this accounts for the slightly softer result than I
had hoped... but it's certainly colourful.
The two images below replicated the setup
but hand held to see if this was possible, actually I was laid flat face
down in the mud with my elbows acting as a duo pod. None of these images
are cropped and unusually for me were shot on Agfa stock, time expired
it was going cheap!
