| p.1 #1 · What better to shoot on a rainy muggy morning then..................... |
We were having a backyard sale this morning till the rain decided to swing on by for a few then leave, once the rain left the water droplet made me take the photos, I swear! Some of my best flora shots yet, I think, let me know what you guys think about them.
All shot with the 5DII 100mm f2,8 Macro and my d.i.y. motley pixel ring flash ($25.00 to build) hand held. No extension tubes used.
All shot on their bushes, with the iso down low and the f stop cranked up I was able to get the BG's pretty dark, just had to drop the blacks in LR4 and it got rid of the rest.
PS for those that have no clue on my setup here are three images of the ghetto Macro setup I have made. Yes the major down fall is the lack of access to the focus ring, but I have a fix for that, gonna clamp a aluminum bar to the focus ring with a worm clamp and run it out to the front of the ring flash should clear the view of the lens and give me manual focus control. Can even run this flash setup with my 70-200 f2.8L
IS as well.
