    Looking forward to seeing the great uses of limited depth of field.

    Sean, I didn't kill the old thread to allow people to follow why there is a new one. I did lock it though.





    Salt Shaker:


    Canon T1i + Sony M3358 closeup filter + Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS, @ 300mm, f/29, 1/160, Flash - Manual exposure and focus.


    Flash used as my tripod is too wobbly.

    This little guy climbed up on my porch where it was the perfect excuse to break out the new 100mm IS macro lens. I bought this lens to get more into product photography but the little critter macro stuff is fun every now and then. I wanted to get as much of this little guy in the frame so I was inches away. Being this close limited my DOF plus I was hand holding the camera where F/11 was about as high as I could get and stay below ISO 1600.

    Does that make for a crummy entry since I put it up before? I was thinking maybe no one saw it. My posts don't seem to draw a lot of attention.

    No, Not at all. And I avoid putting up the same pic more than once also; but sometimes you have those pics that just seem to work in multiple threads---The frog is a solid submission.

    I like the frog Bryan, and I liked it when you posted it previously. You say you wanted to fill the frame and I'd say you did a damn fine job at that! Very nicely framed.


    A while back now I had a very calm cicada who sat nicely for some portraits. I didn't try for or get much DOF, but that's good for this post.


    Canon D60, 100mm f/2.8 macro (original, not USM), f/5, 1/250s, ISO-400, manually focussed. From memory this was on a tripod.





    Okay! That's the first time I've used flickr - so thanks to Sean Setters for his tips on posting images.


    Paul.
