Since retiring, I found I have time on my hands and
with very little to occupy myself, I’ve explored the
digital world. I have never considered myself to be
artistic however, since picking up a camera, I find
myself intrigued by what can be seen through a lens
and the number of unique images to be extracted
from one single viewpoint.
The crop sensor 2005 Sony A100 DSLR with
the Minolta 50mm Macro lens are
considered by today’s standards to be
vintage, yet despite their age, they are still
capable of producing high quality images of
a comparable quality to their modern
Coupled with lenses dating from 1970 to
1990, I find this camera produces a more
softer, subtle looking image.
This “Garlic Mustard” was found in the
compost area of my garden.
I used a Sony DT18-55 kit lens.
Using the widest aperture and an exposure
compensation of-2/3.
