328/365: TIE Fighters

Not those fancy First Order ones. Those are proper TIE fighters, without shields, and with a crew capacity of one. And they come in swarms, obviously.


I was playing X-Wing against my good friend and most regular playing partner again this evening, after quite a while. I hope I didn't annoy him too much when I occasionally stopped playing for taking a picture or two πŸ˜† - he took me apart very easily in our first game. That's what happens when you haven't played a game in weeks. The second one was more even, and with a bit of luck, I got the upper hand. We stopped before the second game concluded, because it was getting really late.


This shot was made with the $28 CCTV lens I bought a few weeks ago. It was fun to manual focus with extension tubes, fiddling with the screw-in mount and all. Im not absolutely happy with the focus here, I'd have preferred the cockpit in focus as well, but on the other hand, the wing detail might just be more interesting. And I like the bokeh.
