Butterflies

Posted

I usually shoot black and white photographs, since I can develop them myself and since I tend to find them more aesthetically pleasing, but sometimes color is a very good thing to have. This past Sunday I visited the Butterfly House in Chesterfield, MO, and took along the Konica Autoreflex T3 and my Macro-Hexanon 55mm lens. I loaded it with a roll of Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400 film (24 frames). There are no tripods allowed in the butterfly house, so I left my monopod in the car and tried to hold the camera as steady as I could (difficult, when one is focused in so closely). Because of the lack of monopod, I shot the pictures without the extender, so these are not 1:1 macro shots, but rather 1:2. Some of my shots came out fuzzy, but for the most part I was very pleased:

Some more butterfly photos can be seen on my Lomography Wall.
