This picture of leaves, bark, and light is from the archives --late December 2018. The leaves and bark were in the local reserve just across the road from my studio in Encounter Bay.
This macro image was made with my old mirrorless Sony NEX-7 digital camera which had been outfitted with a Voigtlander close up adapter and an old 35mm Leica M lens. The combination had only been put together a few weeks earlier. My fingers were crossed: would it work smoothly? Would it allow me to forget the tech and concentrate on making photos, just as I could with a Leica M film camera?
Though the Sony NEX-7 is very basic and old tech -- it is not full frame and it is not good in low light --- it still functions well within these limitations. This is one way to keep an old digital camera (circa 2011) going--as a second walk around camera to the camera that replaced it --a mirrorless Sony A7 R111, a Novoflex adaptor and a 35mm Leica M lens.
