Watches

Lately l've been doing some watch photos again. l used the tilt setup to get the whole dial in focus at the angle l shot at. For the lume shots l use flash aimed at the ceiling at a lower power, and a shutter speed that gives me the lume brightness l want. lt takes trial and error with the flash power and shutter speed to get what l want. But now that l shoot RAW, the exposure doesn't have to be perfect. Canon EOS M50, Pentax Takumar M42 28mm, EOS M-M42 tilt adapter. These were shot at f/8.

ln the first image it looks like a gust of wind would knock the turtle off the rock.


More tilt photography

On Ebay l ordered a Canon M to M42 tilt adapter that allows infinity focus.Couldn't find a Canon M to Nikon tilt adapter, only M42. After 4 weeks the adapter arrived from China(why can't l find the cool gadgets on this side of the world?). Tilting to the left allowed me to get the cars in focus front to back at f/8. ln the last photo you can see the tiny 2mm brass extension tube that allows wide angles to focus a little closer. l made it when l was a machinist. The lens is a 28mm f/3.5.

These were taken at a pond near my apartment. The ones at Hermann Park will let you get very close to them, but not these. And the longest lens l have for the Canon M50 is the 55-250, so no closeups today.
