Fan Of… #59 — Lensball

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is my new lensball. In case any of you hadnโ€™t noticed, I recently got a lensball & have set about having fun with it. My guy (Lensy) is a Tensphy 80mm K9 Crystal Ball (Amazon Associate) [click on my pic below].

Carnations — Lensball Playtime #5

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ My latest playtime came about form me getting some shots of a bunch of pink carnations for a few challenges; so out came the lensball as well ๐Ÿ˜€

It took me a while to get dialled in on the flowers with the lensball (the camera was either too close to the lensball, or the lensball was too close to the flowersor both (last 3 pics)), but perseverance pays off!

Snowy Path — Lensball Playtime #4

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ I was out early this morning to see if I could get a couple of sunrise shots with my lensball for LPM’s Photo Adventure Challenge, but no such luck (here’s the pic).

I did, however, get a few shots on the way home of a snowy path through some trees ๐Ÿ˜€ The main difficulty was the light levels, and hence quite a slow shutter speed. This of course accentuated any movement, so not all shots came out as desired; out of focus/blurry (last couple of shots).

Branching OutLensball — Playtime #3

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Branching out see’s me still in Cumbernauld House Park. Holding the lensball steady in one hand & the camera in the other is quite tricky; any movement is amplified, leading to out of focus, blurry shots. One potential solution is finding something to place the lensball on, preferably without it rolling away; & so to branches ๐Ÿ˜€

Fan Of… #58 — 10+ Macro Filter

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This is also a second entry for Sunshine’s Macro Monday ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is my new Neewer 10+ Macro filter. This was part of a filter kit that I got for my standard 18-55mm Canon lens.

I was out playing with my new lensball in Cumbernauld House Park, and I sat the lensball on a mossy tree stump to get a couple of shots of Cumbernauld House itself. When I looked down into the lensball, I saw the following…
