Oh I See

It really is sad when promises are not kept. In a way it gives you a whole different perspective on the individual. A perspective that you thought never existed.

Disappointment is the word.

Closing In

OK so I finally got the el cheapo extension tubes from ebay. It was quite a suspense wait as the seller actually got kicked out from ebay a few days after I ordered them. In the end the seller honored the order and I received the tubes last week.

I've been playing with them for a while now and the conclusion is: macro photography is DAMN HARD! Coupled with the Canon EF 50mm lens, the tubes create an extremely shallow of depth of field that can be very hard to control. Just moving a few millimeter can and will ensure an out of focus frenzy. So in desperation I got hold of a Manfrotto tripod courtesy of the library and managed to get some half decent shots of the family.

Sundays are video days

One of the most brilliant satires I've seen. Who would've thought you could make fun of both Apple and Dubya's gang at the same time?

That guy very blur lah

After owning the fantastic Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 mk II (try saying it real fast 3 times!) for about a week I finally got the chance to take it out. Prime lenses are legendary for their bokeh (background blur) and this little Canon is no exception. It's definitely the best $119.99 a Canon dSLR user can spend.

At f/1.8 the images come out rather soft, giving it a melancholic feeling. Oh man I can't believe I used the word melancholic.

Buttery bokeh.

At f/2.5 the sharpness is unreal.

Rrrroll up the rrrim!

His name is Pierce.

This is the kinda moment when I wish I had a 70-200mm f/2.8L instead of a prime.
