I think I’ll have to do a separate blog for these ladies, they are such excellent subjects to practice on. I used the fixed 35mm lens and also tried out the B&W film setting in the XT1 as a jpeg and not in lightroom, highlights were a bit bonkers considering she was in a shady room and the light was coming from the kitchen window a good way from her. Had to slide the slider right down, which isn’t so effective on a jpeg as RAW obviously. I think there are settings in the camera to clip the highlights and make a preset, but I can’t get my head around all that yet.
This afternoon my macro lens arrived. It doesn’t have brilliant reviews so another shall I shan’t I few days, the alternative is some mega expensive zeiss lens but my budget only stretched to a 2nd hand fuji60mm. What decided me was going to the flickr site and seeing what people had done with the fuji lens, they looked OK to me so I took the plunge.
I can live with that.
The cats are doing just fine now, really settled in well, can’t wait to get them vaccinated next week so we can start letting them out and we can have the bliddy windows open!
