A little abstract fun with some toy pegs. Make it a good weekend, you only get this one once!

Oh, and on a happy note…I recently learned that Kodak has made a film balanced for tungsten lighting that isn’t slide film. That is so cool! I bought the filter for tungsten lighting conditions, and it works well; but it really cuts back on the amount of light reaching the film. Now I can practice stills and portraits all winter long when I’m stuck in the house!

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Fuji True Definition ISO 400
Shutter Speed - 1/125
Aperture Setting - f-2.8 Program Mode/Manual Focus
Lens - Sigma 105mm portrait/macro lens
Scanning Method - - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer and cropped

Things I’m Thankful to Cliff For…. Shaving your beard off and then waiting to see how long it took us to notice.

Goodness Micki, now that is what I call shallow depth of field! That lense had to be wide open even with a good macro. Super image.

The DOF is fantastic inthis one. I also though Mike N Ike, then I thought no, tic tacs. Those must be tiny pegs.

I am totally amazed. You take a handful of plastic pegs and produce this? On film? The simplicity, the technique, the colors . . . just look at that blue pushing thru the grain at the top. This belongs in a gallery, Micki.

Toy pegs?

I could have sworn they were little candies. Makes me think about going to see a movie...

Nice Micki. At first I thought that it was some Mike & Ike candies that you had lined up, but then they looked a little too short and rough.
