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.
