11 Jul 14. For today's macro shot I thought I'd point you all to the ultimate in macro capture rigs. This link arrived in an email today from a company I've known about for a long time, and one which has always had some very nice hardware to pedal, but this one tops the cake. It will be of interest to maybe 2 or 3 of you, a curiosity for many, and likely of no interest to most of you. But I just had to share it. I need to rush out and buy three! Today's shot was taken in a local nursery which allowed for my placing the plant against a dark background. That made it easy to cut out in post production and layer it against a solid black background. While you loose everything about the plant this way, you gain in isolation of the flower. This was shot with my standard 18 - 200 lens but on the Df body which gave me a 16 MP image which means that I had plenty of pixels with which to play. I added a very slight micro contrast manipulation, plus cropped the original very tight. Other than that, it is straight from the camera. Nikon Df; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 400; 1/1000 sec @ f / 8.
