Macro / Some recent flower stuff

This rose was backlit using a mirror's sun reflection...

Portrait / Coy Dove
« on: April 29, 2014, 03:43:38 AM »
I do a lot of stuff just to see if I could do it.  This dove is 20 images, focus stacked and photo-merged using a tripod mounted 2X TC with a 300 mm 2.8 lens,
manual focusing/exposure.  At full size, it would be a 20" x 30" print at 300 dpi.

Landscape / Trying a different dirrection

A photographer will use that 70-200 but...an artist will use the 135.

Animal Kingdom / Re: Setting up a camera for humming birds?
« on: March 24, 2014, 07:21:27 AM »
It's really difficult...plug all the holes in the feeder but one, wait a day for the birds to accustom themselves to one hole> using a tripod with a long lens and a remote shutter, pre-focus near the feeder hole.  Now the tough part>grab a cuppa and wait, with the remote in your hand...when a bird comes close to your pre-focus area, fire off a burst.  You won't have a high keeper rate but, you will have some killer images...like this

Aah...why not take the posy inside to the kitchen table rather than lay/play in the diet?     ::)

Animal Kingdom / Re: Show your Bird Portraits

The term "bird portrait" is, at best, an oxymoron...one cannot do a portrait, using an acceptable definition of the term, in the creature's natural milieu.  Nonetheless...

Photography Technique / Re: Upsizing a landscape picture technique

For an incredibility simple answer...use a longer lens and use Photoshop "photo-merge".  You can cough out images with as many MP as you want. 
This dove is 24"x30" @ 300ppi.



99% of the time, a 300mm f/2.8 lens is mounted on my 1Ds3 for everything, if not that, a 180 macro.
Just make sure your computer has sufficient RAM.

Macro / Re: one more droplet

I will when I've got the technique down pat...I'm one anal retentive SOB and am not satisfied as of yet.
I've got this rule...if I can't live with it as a desktop background. it's not prime time...not yet.      ;)

Macro / one more droplet

For your harsh C&C

I want to echo those that have gone before me...I have a rather dated 1Ds3 that I use but two lenses...300mmmf/2.8 and a 180 macro, that can routinely, with PP, cough out images like this that are in excess of 30" on a side at 300ppi.





Obliviously, there is some blending that requires Photoshop knowledge.      ;)
