A Field by Homemade Lens — (1)

Well, the lens what I call “Homemade Lens” has first appeared here as

the  “Lens from Toy Camera” and then having had additional front element,

it became to the “Two element Retro-focus Lens“.

Two Element Homemade Lens-180-001

In fact, the additional front element was a concave lens from my

broken specs. (Photo above: Left)    Then, proper optical lens came from 

HOYA Optics.   And finally I properly mounted that optical lens onto

Canon EF Mount adapter, using  67 mm filter ring. —– But, to put

the main lens (from Toy camera),  I mounted it 10 degree tilted forward,

since this lens has no focus adjustment, tilting the lens would give

a kind of Pan-focus effect. (Photo above: Right)

Still,  the images were the good old Impressionistic fuzzy image

which I’m very fond of.  🙂

What I like the most of this lens was,  it’s small size,  good general wide angle,  

no need to bother focusing,  shows enough detail of the subject but

not too much,  with good fuzziness —– and above all,  it cost nothing !

It is really a lazy Sunday Painter’s best companion.  = just click a camera,  

it automatically produces the paintings in mass scale !    😀

So, a knuck to have a life contented is = don’t ask too much.  Be contented.  

Ha ha ha   😀

    Excellent! Beautiful images and creative exploration of photography. 😉

    I have experimented with pin-hole boxes to compose shots and held small plastic lens and glass jars infront of the camera. Not very good at attaching modified lens to the camera. 😀
