A little visitor

Little Visitor by V-Light

Β  Hello my lovely people πŸ˜€

Β  This cute little fellow came to our yard yesterday. My mum found him outside and he wouldn’t go away no matter how close she got to him. When she called me to come, he was already sitting comfortably on her arm. The poor birdie was probably lost or who knows what happened to his family. He looked perfectly healthy and could fly just fine but was definitely hungry as he gobbled down all the little insects we caught for him (or her). He wouldn’t let go of my mum, we had to leave him on that tree a few times until he finally sat there. A few minutes later he flew away. We hope he’s alright and maybe he’ll pay us a visit again πŸ™‚

My face when… (fill in the blank)

My Face When by V-Light

Β Hello my lovely people πŸ˜€

Β  Meet Sicilian, a very cool feral cat that decided he wanted to be our friend. He’s been roaming around our house for more than 2 years now and he always wants to be petted. If you don’t pet him, he’ll demand it… If you ignore him, he’ll follow you around and the faces he makes are priceless! So when do you look like that?

Β  For me it would be something like: My face when the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream truck passes right outside of my house (but it never stops at my village…)

Hello my friends! Since i don’t have any new material to post yet (i’m working on that) i thought it’d post a photo of our little Moonky. He’s about 6 months old now and he’s getting really big πŸ™‚ We found him a few days after he was born by a stray cat outside our house. My sister who is the big cat lover of the family fell in love and we kept him. I must admit i’m more of a dog person but he is adorable and a great model! πŸ˜€

Β  Isn’t that cute? πŸ™‚ I always had a fascination with macro photography. It unveils a world full of details and textures that our eyes alone cannot see. But what can you do when you don’t have the equipment needed? I started off by using close up filters on my 18-55mm kit lens. For a beginner it was ok but i did notice losing a lot of detail, that’s what happens when you stack 3 more cheap elements on an already cheap lens. I cannot afford a dedicated macro lens so i’m mainly working with the two cheapest solutions that don’t mess with image quality: extension tubes and a lens reversal ring. This particular photo has been shot using a Canon 350D with the 18-55mm reversed, using a cheap reversal ring i bought on ebay. As you can see you can get incredibly close and and still get a lot of detail.

Β  Next week i’ll be making a post about macro photography and will share with you some tips and tricks you can use to get better photos. Stay tuned πŸ˜‰

Cooper
