A7 Macros with the 55mm f2.8 Micro-Nikkor at the Boston Flower Show
4 months ago

I'm not much into shooting flowers, but I'd been looking for a opportunity to test arguably one of the sharper macro lenses ever made for 35mm, the 55mm f2.8 Micro-Nikkor.

Shooting flowers without a tripod or monopod and little-no experience - and all artificial lighting - with clucking flower-lovers all around - didn't start out very promising. But by sitting on the floor and shooting f8-f16 at slow shutter speeds and high ISOs worked out pretty well.

For those into flowers - enjoy!
