Since I have a bit of time … here is a photo I shot mostly to see how well I could focus. Then I wondered what would happen if I cropped the image. So you see the original and then a cropped version and finally a real close-up of Mr. Ant. I normally don’t share images of a higher quality (you can buy a print for that!), but in this case I am, since I want to show things in better detail.
Not bad for a hand held image!
Today’s five mile walk was so lovely: the cloud cover and temps in the 50s made it such fun. I didn’t see a ton to catch my eye for photos, but I did need to practice with my new 35mm lens so I stopped on occasion just to play around. Much of what I did isn’t anything workable, but here is a straight out of the camera (SOOC) image, just to share what it can do hand-held and with no post processing. Not bad, really! I will still think of my 100mm as THE lens, but this one seems as if it’ll be a great one for traveling.
I’m still learning about my new camera. I made very few shots on today’s walk: there just wasn’t a lot that caught my eye. I was using the 100mm macro (which requires a mount adapter), and in order to show you how things are going at the moment here is a photo that included a few ants. (And yes, this camellia really is called the Yuletide.)
Tomorrow, weather permitting, I’ll head out with the 35mm lens I received just today. (Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Lens) I’m curious to see how it does with macro work. It’s certainly not the 100mm, but it’s definitely smaller and lighter and might suffice for travel.
