Thanks Wiebe. It takes some effort to get those focus stacks properly assembled in Zerene Stacker, it is only one out of ten that looks reasonably good
And thanks Click, Graham and Bluediablo for the feedback, much appreciated
By the way, isn't that Sid from Ice Age that is hiding under the ice glazing..
I'm sure any psyciatrist would consider me as a very interesting case
Thanks Graham. Nature in -30C gives shape to crystals beautifully but they get destroyed in a blink of eye. Very little window to manually focus and capture them. Focus peaking and/or focus guide is extremely useful here.
I hate every time I have to admit I'm wrong..
I expected to see the hot sensor of the 5D3 through the lens using my Seek thermal camera but no.. The only thing I can see is a faint reflection of my hand holding the thermal camera. The picture was taken after 10 minutes in movie mode! Before that the camera was practically invisible against the (room temp) background.
But watch what happens when I hold my hand on the focus ring! I strongly suggest wearing gloves when shooting frostwork!
And of course it will help if the camera is kept cool; any object at +20°C will radiate heat into a motive at -30°C
