A few days ago, this guy decided that my bosses’ classical guitar would make a nice quiet home.
An interesting & foolhardy choice, as several times a week, people in the office will pick it up & have a play.
I can only play three chords & those are barely recognisable, so I’ve decided to let him have some peace.
Nobody else around here has made this decision though, so any day now he’s likely to choose another home.
I’ve had a few goes at getting this shot over the last few days, but he rarely pops his head out to say hi & there’s plenty of work to be done.
A stakeout hasn’t been possible.
Available lighting is poor, so my recent lack of success in appropriately capturing the moment is not all that surprising.
I’ve tried using an iPhone’s flashlight, which is usually fine for outdoor macro shots, but it ain’t enough for this task.
The battery in my E-M1 hasn’t been charged in ages.
It decided to remind me to “be prepared” by dying, just as I was setting up the shot.
But thanks to some well timed sunlight, Annie’s Olympus OM-D E-M5 body & my 60mm f2.8 macro lens, I managed to get it today.
He should really start looking for another rental though.
