TJ’s Daily Photo #12- Komura 135mm f/2.8 Screw-Mount

The Daily Photo #12- January 12th 2016

Komura 135 f/2.8 Screw Mount Lens

All the shots in the gallery were taken at 1/200 sec, and ISO 200. Aperture settings ranged from f/4 to f/11 depending on  the shot and the flash power.

I really wanted to shoot with the Nikon D750, and I wanted to stay warm, so I decided to stay inside and practice some macro with flash. I pulled out my old screw-mount Komura 135mm f2/8 lens started shooting different lighting angles.

I started out with  no predetermined plan, so I experimented with sending the flash inside the lens to project out the front and sending light out the back.I bounced light off the wall, and colored fabric, and made a lot of bad frames in the meantime. Experimentation is how I learn, so I have to experiment when I shoot!

The equipment I used was simple: an LP180R triggered with a Phottix Odin, and a regular LP180 that was being triggered using its optical slave mode. I was able to fine tune the power adjustments to the LP180R with the Odin from on top of my camera, and I used the LumoPro Lightswitch to soften the light coming out of the regular LP180. The Lightswtitch also gives you a bit of control where the light hits as a fill or accent light.

All the shots in the gallery were taken at 1/200 sec, and ISO 200. Aperture settings ranged from f/4 to f/11 depending on  the shot and the flash power.

See you tomorrow.
