Re: Share your Macro Photos

I had just purchased the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens. 

Taken August 27th at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum Butterfly exhibit. Perfect overcast cool morning.

Canon EOS Rebel T5, ISO 600, 1/125sec. f/5.6

Shutterhack;  How are you liking that 100mm lens? IT was recommended to me and have sorta been considering it, but still at beginner level and haven't justified it yet.  I love the contrast in this photo and hpw you framed this. DOF could be a little better, maybe at a higher f stop? (that was a question)

I'm a total beginner also. That said, I am really enjoying the lens. I’m under the impression that DOF when taking close up photos is what it is and the only way to overcome that is by focus stacking for a shot like that. I shot this handheld which is why I purchased this lens for the IS feature.

 

This pic below I was pretty square to the butterfly, so it is more in focus.

Re: Share your Macro Photos

shutterhack,

Very nice resolution on that lens.  Welp, looks like I need to learn a bit on focus stacking.  I know what it is, but not how to do it.  Your butterfly shots are amazing to me.  Mine didn't come close to that kind of detail, must be the lens.  A friend of mine has a $3k macro lens, and we both took pics last w/e of the same thing.  His were SO much more detailed, it really brought home the idea that  the lens makes ALL the difference.  Might have to justify getting one after all.  May I ask where you got it and was it a small fortune?  The ones I've looked at they wanted around $1,000.  Thanks for sharing. Liz
