    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    Being long inside the house during lock down, I wanted to try something on the table with a fully black background. I thought, ok what is nice to put in front of such a background, and since brass may light up quite well, I took my little collection of brass lenses as a subject.
    Although I had some nice results with artificial lights, the once shot with natural daylight came out better with respect to color rendition and contrast. I made one attempt with flash, but that ruined the background.

    (if you click on the picture, you find some info on the different lenses)

    Got my EOS RA today and made another go at Orion Nebula. What a difference but still no telescope yet so can't wait to see it properly lit with a telescope

    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    My story for this: after getting neck-deep in film and large format photography, regular ol' digital DSLR shooting gets pretty boring. To have some fun, I decided, OK, going to use only this one simple lens, and no RAW files. So, I put my trusty Industar 50-2 50mm f/3,5 Soviet Tessar style lens on the D800 with the image area set to 5:4, and set the file format to TIFF with the Monochrome color setting. Walked around Danby State Forest and got a roll full of great pics, my favorite being this:
    Click image for larger version.

    Which, I later printed as an Argyrotype and presented in a solo exhibition with the name "Blasted Twins." You can see a scan on my website. But here is a jpeg straight from the original tiff for everyone to see. Wasn't even trying for it, but I nailed the hyperfocal focus with that lens. It can be a miracle worker when it hits the sweet spot. Made digital shooting fun again.

    Thank you Randy, Peter, and Jon. Itís called the Orion Nebula located in the sword of the Orion constellation.

    About 1300 light years away and one of the brighter nebulas that can be viewed with a telescope eyepiece on a clear night. The colors are breathtaking.
