Behind The Lens

In a quick makeshift studio in our home basement laundry room.
This image was taken in late August in the afternoon.
This was shot using natural light from the south facing basement window. I think the angle of the lens and the older lens coatings gives it the unique color reflection.
I shot this with Sony A3000 I picked up at a thrift store for less then $100 with the kit lens. Since it is a mirrorless camera I thought I would be able to use a mount adapter and take advantage of my classic Minolta glass.
I was looking to take a photography themed image for a website I was working on. I put a manual zoom lens, some 35mm movie film and a Minolta color temperature meter together to see what I could come up with.
I don't like to do to much to an image if I can help it. I guess you could say I am quite old school in that way. We did not have a lot of money growing up, so trying to get it right in the camera is how I have always approached photography. I will however usually adjust for brightness and contrast.
In my camera bag
I really don't keep a camera bag ready since my photography interests change from day to day. For example if I shoot something macro then I have the Minolta extension bellows (another thrift store find) setup on the Sony A3000 most of the time. For more general things it might be the Canon XS1 or the 6D.
Use the equipment that you have to make images. You don't have to go out and get most expensive camera or have a professional studio to produce interesting images that people will like.
