The AMC Pacer is a two-door compact automobile produced in the United States by the American Motors Corporation between 1975 and 1980. Its initial design idea was started in 1971. The car's unusual rounded shape with massive glass area greatly contrasted with the mostly boxy, slab-sided models of the era. The Pacer's "jellybean" body style is a very easily recognized icon of the 1970s.
super magic happy time fun tip.
Hello. there is nothing spectacular about the above photo. sorry about that. But if i posted another masterpiece it would distract from the text i am presently filling in. If you are still reading, i just wanted to take the time to share a photographer's trick that i am not sure many know about. I remember using my old canon s3 and getting really amazing macros--like, bug antlers and shit. whatever they're called--probosciseseses. But when i moved up to a dslr i was a little disappointed to have all of those megapixels and no real macro ability. solution: buy a macro lens! god, no. i wouldn't even use macro enough to justify such a purchase. alternate and reasonably effective solution: remove your lens, turn it the other way, and hold it against the body. Now i must say two things. One, this definitely requires much experimentation regarding setting shutter speeds for the desired exposure; and there is, in fact, a way to 'lock' the aperture to a given stop--but you'll have to research that trick on your own; moreover, fiddling with the zoom of the disembodied lens has interesting effects. Second, please be careful not to get dust in the body or lens opening. e.g., if zooming in on a plate of flour particles, do not sneeze..
alright. that's all.
