My Last submission for the @thedarkroomlab #thedarkroomlab_vivid contest // @tabdahl and I after spending some time in Moab went journeying with no destination in mind and found ourselves here, blasting Sigur Rós out of his Honda CR-V and shooting piccs ::) #velvia100#slidefilm shot on my Canon EOS620 #35mm#hungry#angsty
One of my most popular Moon images now on Instagram too! It's 5 year's old today!
It demonstrates just what can be achieved with the afocal technique in a single shot, It's from a larger image, cropped, to show the detail on a heavily cratered area of the Moon -
It''s a favourite of mine, as it's just one small photo for me - one giant leap for my astrophotography!
It was one of those moments, when everything was just right and I'd just got the knack of afocal imaging.
This afocal image was taken with a compact camera, single shot, hand-held to the eyepiece of a Dobsonian telescope.
I used no layers in processing... just shows what can be done with one image and a bit of skill ;)
There is even enough definition to be able to see the straight wall, which is a pretty good result for this technique!
It also includes the Apollo 11 landing site and I dedicated this photo to Neil Armstrong (RIP)
Brian May follows me on Twitter, as a result of seeing this. I was so chuffed, after following him since the 1970s, he now follows me!
It is this photo's 5th anniversary and I'm still pleased with it. People have nicknamed me the Afocal Queen, which makes me smile 👸🏼
