Weekly macro / closeup thread for 15 Apr 07
Apr 14, 2007

I'm kicking this one off a little early because I may not have time to do it tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who participated in last week's thread -some excellent shooters!!

I took this series a few days ago on my way home from work in my favorite abandoned lot -at least until the owner mows it...

All Canon gear: Xti (manual mode F11, 1/200, ISO 100) + 1.4 teleconverter + 25mm extension tube + 100mm macro lens. MR-14 EX ring flash set to a 4:1 ratio (to create shadows) and -1/3 FEC (to keep from blowing out the highlights). Hand held with minimal post processing and of course no cropping -ever Some images at max magnification (about twice life size).

Always minimal post processing and no cropping -unless you count the viewfinder...
