Title: Canon 100mm IS USM L Macro Photos
Post by: revup67 on January 02, 2011, 02:23:35 PM
Honey bee hanging on as temperatures drop here in southern Cal.  Image stacked with Helicon Software.  Tripod mounted camera.

Great shot! I tried Helicon stacking software a few years ago, but I never managed to get good results. Did you use a macro focusing rail for this? What are you using as lighting?

Thanks for the kind words.  No macro rail just a Bogen tripod #3021 with a Manfrotto HD701 fluid head, EOS 7D, 100mm IS USM L macro lens 1x.  Settings were 1/10 @ F11 manual focus AWB.  The bee was completely stationary. 

Speaking of Macro Rails, the cool thing about the quick release plate on this head is that you can slide it back and forth by a few inches if I ever needed the macro rail "feel".  It also has an emergency brake in case you forget to lock the plate in place.  Fantastic product.

Just by coincidence I found another lethargic bee today on our BBQ counter.  Temps were in the low 50sº F and this guy was fairly lethargic until I tried to manipulate him for the ideal shot.  He awakened and tried to muster up enough energy to fly away in which he eventually did but not before I fired off two shots.  Improper planning on my part was to get a larger depth of field forgetting he might move thus the shutter was a bit to slow at 1/25 hence the slight blur.  Should have increased the ISO or used the flash..live and learn

Wow!  How did you get that level of magnification? very nice pic.

PS: I tried both the L and non-L versions. Both very sharp... but my non-L version seemed sharper.

Yes I'm curious too, how did you get that kind of magnification with the 100mm?

From What I can see here, the L version is sharper and colors look much better..though that could just be a factor of the shot presented.

I bought the L version due to sharpness, contrast, and color reproduction.  I don't have time to deal with changing color profiles between lenses.  Most of the L lenses have pretty consistent color across the board.

Marv..nice find on those spider chics..I've not seen that before

Here's one I took hand held, no flash, basically slowly walked up to this dragonfly while being careful not to block any light and create an unwanted shadow.  From what I have read it's best to keep the light continuous when photographing insects due to loss of heat.  Every few steps I would take the dragonfly would take off then return to the same location moments later.  This happened several times.  Though this shot was taken with the 100mm 2.8 L macro, I was not in 1x macro mode.

Avoiding your shadow on any insect is the key, but even more so with dragonflies. Also, for any animal, it's important to know their behaviour and sometimes physiology. For example, dragonflies tend to have better eyesight forward and above and it's pretty poor from below. This is due to an adaptation based on their hunting technique. Another trick that some advocate, is to slowly moving forward while waving from side to side, it is supposed to mimic a bush waving in the wind.

Great information Kernuak, thanks, ... but I was getting a visual of that approach and have seen many a man/woman leaving the local tavern with the same approach, 'moving forward while waving side to side',  and never thought that were chasing dragonflies. HA!

Perhaps you should watch more closely next time, to see if they get close to anything, even if they aren't trying to :P.

Actually it is possible, but you need good diffuse lighting and sometimes you need to push the ISO. Also, there is the option of using selective focus creatively to emphasise certain parts of the subject. I often use selective focus, but it isn't to everyone's taste.

So, this was taken with the 100mm f/2.8 Macro, not the L version (sorry, had the original before the L came out, and I haven't found enough difference to warrant an upgrade...hope it's ok):

I got the 25mm from canon first and two months back I got the Kenko set too. Have not shot extensively with them but I did not find too much difference in the feel. They both use the same air though ;)

Spider Orchid. While the day ended up being windy, meaning the orchids danced across my view finder (not helpful for 1/2 sec exposures) I managed to freeze an orchid with the fill flash, while retaining that blur :)

I use the Kenko set and hace found the 68mm useful at times, but can be awkward to use. I've used them on both the 100mm macro (non-L), where magnification is approaching 2x and the 135 f/2, where it is approaching 1x. Shooting near macro at f/2 brings a whole new artistic world to life, as does using extension tubes on the 24-105 at the wide end.

Northstar,
It is entirely possible to have all three Kenko tube installed between your camera and the 100L.  I did that.  However, it is really necessary to have a very stable support on the system, the minutest movement is going to blur the image.
The image I tried with this setup showed even the scales on a butterfly wing.  Though the distance to the object you're photographing is only a few inches, a live butterfly would not stay for you to shoot it, photographically.  Mine was a road kill.

PS., the image was not cropped.

Its not a macro, but is taken with my 100L and seems to fit here as well as anywhere.  They were on our kitchen counter, the light wasn't the best, and I let the camera set the aperture to f/3.2 - f/4 when f/8 would have had more depth of field.  I'm not going to redo them :)   I cropped them, but did not try to correct color balance, so there is very minimal processing if any.
 
Its the end of the growing season, my little raised garden will likely be frozen out this weekend, so I shot a couple photos of some of the last vegetables.
 
The tomatoes are a Heirloom Variety (Cherokee Purple), the first that I've ever grown.  They are sweet and have a wonderful flavor.  Really no comparison for eating quality to the perfect equal sized tomatoes that are great on looks. I used a couple of them to make a pot of chili today, but mostly I just slice and eat them.  They are dead ripe when they just have the green shoulders showing at the top.
As for Zucchini... I have one plant, and it is taking over the world ;)
 
And ...  what would a cold rainy fall day be without hot chocolate chip cookies.

Thank you very much.

It was taken in the garden, that's the reason the darter is sitting on a rose plant.
The dragonfly was very cooperative and didn't escape when I got closer and closer.
I think, I took this shot at a distance of about 50 cm.
The background is so dark, because of a really dark green hedge and the -1 EV fill flash.
Some sunlight helped me to achieve the reflections of the wings.
