That’s not a cup (21/365)
Ever wake up, get a pot of coffee on the kettle and before you know it you’ve just ruined a 24-105mm F4L IS and a Rebel K2000? Well that’s exactly what happened here. Except not.
This was a super fun photo to do. And you can do it too! Here’s what you need:
A 24-105mm F4L IS lens cup (with unscrewable mount, you’ll need to cut this off)
A broken 35-80mm lens (You’lll need to cut the EF mount off this)
A broken Rebel K2000
A dremel tool
A glue gun
A sense of humor.
So long story short. I cut the mount off an actual EF lens, then I mounted that on the lens cup, then I mounted the new EF lens cup on a REAL K2000. The poured myself a hot steaming cup of morning energy.
Strobist data: Canon 430EX (@1/4 power on HSS) With Softbox and CTO gel just to the left of the frame (This is key, you need to light the cup in a way that it doesn’t reveal that it’s not a lens, lighting it from the right reveals the cheap plastic moulding marks on my cup)
Camera: 5D mark II With 50mm F1.2
