Canon MPE 65mm Macro Images

MPE 65mm Macro Landscapes

Welcome friends and foes, I hope you are all well today. Iíve dug deep down into my hard drives and pulled out some pixels Iíve been hording for a couple years now. Some captured fall 2010, spring 2011, or fall 2011. Hording only because Iíve either been in to poor of health or couldnít find the time to get them processed and uploaded to share with you. Iím sorry for the delay but if you lurk with me I hope youíll be pleasantly surprised and that will make it worth tagging along. In just my fall 2011 folder I have over 1,400 files to go through so this will take me some time, the thread may get to large and be closed before Iím finished-hope not-if so Iíll start version II. Most likely Iíll be shooting more pix before I even get these all uploaded so letís guess years..


These images were all captured with the Canon MPE 65mm macro lenses.

I rent this lens a couple times a year, one reason-I donít have the bucks to buy it and the other- macros are the only thing you can shoot with it. You canít do pix of your honey by the pool or me riding in the PBR, macros only, thatís it.

Please keep in mind, these are the images I like! The pix each have some quality that caught my eye. That could be a tiny sliver of light, a nice bokeh, or out of focus effect with-in them. Possibly a unique twist to a pistil or something that was unusual that popped out at me. ThenÖ.again, they might just be a good macro image of cannabis that has no artistic qualities at all. Macros I consider the toughest cannabis pix to capture and get right. Sometimes I luck out and get a good shot or two. An average shoot for me is 200 frames in an afternoon, or until my pain puts me down, and I only save to my drives one of every ten frames. So this is only a small sampling of what it takes to get a decent shot.

I hope you enjoy themÖlurkers loved, questions answered if possible, your images allowed only if shot with this lens, Iíd like to keep the thread specific to the MPE 65mm. Criticism accepted and of course some appreciated lol. Friendship respected and humor encouragedÖ.thank you for your views and comments..DD.

Doobieduck,

The macros came out good! Got to love a macro lens but you are right, they can be expensive for a one trick pony. Have you tried reverse mounting your reg zoom lens yet? A LOT cheaper to do you just seem to get a slightly smaller DOF and obviously need to do all focusing manually. I can send you some links if you want a little info...

As far as this lens, I think I remember you saying you were not really a fan of the technique but I would love to see how a DOF stacking shot would turn out, especially on the Hummingbird Red. There is so much depth to visually explore that unfortunately gets lost to the short DOF of doing macros. Do you think the softening the sharpness once they are stacked would bring back at least a little of the "natural" feel?

Everyone..many thanks for the immidiate response and appreciation of my art...wow, I'm honored.
WasntMe..I've tried every type of reversing you can think of. Some of my reversing lenses and techniques are better than these with this lens. I've also used enlarger lenses on bellows..just about everything buddy.
As far as stacking..YES..I did some with the MPE a couple years ago but did not have the right tripod-etc. to do it correctly. I think stacked images with the MPE would be fantastic now that I know what I did wrong. The next rental I'm considering doing some. For now we have these...Peace..DD
