    Pop Goes the Subject



    I shot this at my medium zoom lens's maximum aperature, f/5.6. It blurs a mundane background just enough to focus interest on the subject.

    Shutters Wide Open



    Notice the small glow inside her camera? This is the CMOS sensor!



    This is the shot that she was taking of me at precisely the same moment. She was trying to take a shot of me, but I had jokingly turned my camera on her. What are the chances of that happing?

    Also since the new cameras have a light meter and are digital should one use an independent light meter as if you were working with a 35mm ? I almost said old school or old but there has to be something said about those days. Comparing them to an airhead here ?
    For editorial purposes, anything goes. For more formal applications, books, illustrations, etc. it's strictly maximum DoF, which is almost impossible to do with a standard camera lens. The problems arise because most flowers have areas which are on two planes: parallel and perpendicular to the film (sensor) plane. This requires either a tilting lens or flexible bellows (like a view camera). And because the shots are usually magnified, shooting with a narrow aperture means shooting with a slow shutter speed and because the shot may be outdoors motion blur becomes an issue. The tiltable lens/bellows allows sharp focus with wider apertures (generally).

    If the insect is the subject, the flower or plant is somewhat less important and totally sharp focus isn't always necessary for anything but the insect.

    As far as metering goes, most modern cameras have good internal metering systems and unless it's a complex scene or strobe lighting is involved a handheld meter isn't usually necessary.

    Pretty cool! I once had this happen at a basketball game. I fellow photographer and I were facing each other on opposite sides of the court and triggered our shutters at the same moment. Serendipity aside, that's a neat shot.

    Definitely. Collectively the best week yet (in my humble opinion). Tom is gonna be busy with the feedback. I tried shooting something yesterday on my way out the door to Mass, but flubbed it because of my haste. Maybe I'll post it anyway because it will be a good lesson in what not to do.

    I don't know why, but I like this second shot even more, Jack.

    Great sound effects ; )
