Ratty OM10 (113/365)

Ok so I must admit. Of all the camera brands out there. I’ve owned most of them. Uptil now I have not owned an olympus SLR (I’ve had a EP-1 very briefly but that was it, also it’s not an SLR). So this is baby’s first Olympus SLR. Came with batteries that worked (although 1/2 exploded), a 50mm F1.8. And the manual override mode knob thing. I just got it in a thrift shop, it was sitting there! For 10 bucks! Today was a good day.

Anyway I did end up cleaning it up to remove the grime and it looks nicer now, I just wanted to get a pre-clean photo.

Steam Coffee (23/365)

So, I really like coffee. Like a lot. Originally I was going to use my 100mm macro to do a high speed photo of me pouring TONS of sugar into my coffee. Although to be fair the contraption of a cup is already pretty sweet.

The point of the story is that I got very distracted when I took a test shot on my 50mm lens and noticed that the flash behind it was lighting up steam!

That’s not a cup (21/365) on Flickr.

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)
