Back in 2013 I did a post about my friend the Beekeeper.You can read that here. I’ve always had a fascination for bees and often sit and watch them work their way over my lavender and other plants in my garden.
I sat there a few days ago with my Nikon Z6 and a 300mm lens, and this little guy shows up and places himself in profile. The shot is handheld, I supported the lens on my knees. It’s heavily cropped too, but as I wrote in the original article I never did buy that Macro lens. Although I hear that Nikon have now produced a 100mm Z-mount lens to a reasonable price. So who knows?
Just for a bit of fun here this the same shot in black and white. I’m still playing around in Capture One

With lockdown easing here in Norway it was possible to attend an exhibition of treasures loaned to a local gallery by the closed National Gallery. There were some real Norwegian treasures to look at. A great day out.

PP in Capture One (Yes. I’m trying out new Software. I’ve always missed Aperture and never felt totally at home in LR). Why did Apple give up on it? So, Tim Cooke when you read this, as I’m sure you do each week you will know my pain 😊
A blog for my interest in film photography, 'classic' cameras and legacy lenses. A randomly changing display of some of my film cameras, from old folders and pocket Olympus to Mamya Press, is dispayed above when the blog is opened
