Reading on the Plane

Reading on the Plane

Note: This seems so appropriate to post right now, sitting at the Frankfurt airport. Who knew I would be back travelling again – and taking photos at airports and planes. I don\’t even know if I should be sleeping or staying awake – messed up by time zones. This is only going to get worse over the next couple of weeks…sigh!

Reading on a airplane to somewhere…
About Photograph:

During my vacation in December 2011, I was on a lot of planes, travelling a lot on my vacation. At some point on this plane ride, I woke up and it was dark. However, there was this lady some seats to the left who was reading, and the lamp light was falling so beautifully on her shining hair. I had to take a photo using the extremely amazingly lovely Konica Hexanon 50mm F1.7 (did I tell you that I love that lens? almost more than my Canon 10-22mm EF-S?)

Technical Details:

Camera: Olympus E-PL3
Exposure: 1/25s at f1.7 9manual aperture, manual focus)
Focal Length: 42mm
Lens: Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.7 with Konica AR to Micro 4/3rds adaptor
ISO: 200

Passion Flower – 1

Passion Flower - 1

At my parents place, they have this amazing looking flower with an intensely sweet scent – very attractive to humans and bees and butterflies alike. They call it the \”clock flower” (translated). Now with an hour on hand I had to absolutely try to photograph this.

And, what fun I had photographing this flower. My setup was my Olympus E-PL3 with the Konica Hexanon 50m f1.7 (which is a 100mm equivalent on my micro four thirds sensor). To get a dark backround, I found a black cotton cloth, tied it to a door handle and let it drape on a stand, the fabric draping down at at an angle. And then I rested the flower on it.

What do I like about this photograph? That it is one my very first macros. That I really like this particular flower. I looove the shallow DOF, the thin focus plane of this lens. And that the bokeh – the out of focus bits look so good. That I was manually focusing the lens, on a tripod, and this is quite good for a novice manual focusser.

I have two more photographs of this flower coming up in the following days.
