  • Idle Mans Photography

    A pleasant morning yesterday spent sitting on the swinging chair in the garden under the gazebo with my little Olympus E-M5mk2 and 75-300mm lens on my lap.

    All taken from the swinging chair hence the title.







    Regards Paul.
    One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.

    A rich variety of subjects and superb quality, all taken without shifting your @r$e. Only you could pull this off, Paul and you've done it with style!

      What shutter speed did you use to counter the effect of the swinging chair

      I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.

            A lovely set anyway, but the quality-to-effort ratio must be off the scale

              All very nice images Paul.

              The quality and sharpness of #2 really shows what the MZ 75-300mm can do in the right hands.

                Well done Paul, would you recommend a swinging chair as the next camera accessory?

                  Does this swinging chair technique counteract camera shake? If so can you recommend a camera bag to carry one with my m4/3 kit

                    Suggest you read instructions for zoom lens!

                    Lovely colours.

                        A lovely set of photographs. I really like the bird photograph and the colours in No 3.

                        You have also captured the texture of the dog's coat very nicely in No 4.

                          Fun series, Paul, love the sparrow with the punk hairstyle.
                          The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

                            Sparrow is my favourite too. Brilliant sharpness and clarity. I never managed anything like when I had that lens. Hope you are up and around more soon. All the best Phill.
