Wrangling the beast with lilies

With me and the 5D Mark III’s full-frame sensor it’s all a crap shoot, but I’m learning by going where I have to go. For the time being, depth of field is the challenge.

Take a bow

I’m currently going through a major transition (all good!), so I’m wrapping stuff up and preparing to change coordinates. Also, I’ve got this brand new, monster of a camera but I’m ridiculously busy–aargh!… Lots of 5DM3 “Out and About” photos will be coming soon. In the meantime, another close-up of flora at the homestead from this past weekend.

Totally tripping at the homestead

So I got the 5D Mark III, which necessitated updating my computer’s system so I could run software that could read the camera RAW files… ALL WORTH IT! WOW! What a revelation!! “L” glass with the new 5D is nothing less than the SHITE! Here’s some blooming flora from the yard. I did minimal processing on these images, and the first (the aloe bloom) is pretty much straight from the camera.

Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L. All at ISO 200.

1st image: lens at 105mm, 1/5000 second at f/4.
2nd image: lens at 105mm, 1/500 second at f/6.3.
3rd image: lens at 105mm, 1/100 second at f/6.3.

(Interesting that I chose images only from the long end of the zoom range.)
