New Macro Lens

May 14, 2012  •  1 Comment

Today I received my Canon MP-e 65mm f/2.8 1-5x macro lens.  The focus on this lens is crazy and it will take some time getting used to.  I took about 30 photos with it today and about 2 are keepers.  Here's the link to the 2 that are the best photos from today.  http://www.nicoleflynnphotography.com/p629841822

Now for the bad photos.  I really shouldn't show anyone these photos.  Since I'm still learning how to use this lens, I guess that I could use this to document my progress.  This lens isn't an auto focus lens, but it doesn't focus like a typical manual focus lens either.  It doesn't have a focusing ring.  So to focus the lens you have to move the camera closer or farther away to focus.  If you use this lens outside and the wind blows the subject is thrown out of focus.

 


The Lens of my Dreams

Finally after years of wanting this lens.  It's finally on its way!!  (Well, it hasn't shipped quite yet.  It's been ordered.)  I'm very much in love with macro photography, and with my other macro lens I just can't seem to get close enough to my liking.  Hopefully this will be the lens I can do that with.  As soon as I have it in my little hands I'll post some images.


Not much of a writer

I'm going to actually try to keep up with this blog now that everything is here on one website.  (Thanks Zenfolio!)  I won't be using the blog over at blogger anymore.  Honestly, I'm not much of a writer. The one exciting thing thats happened recently is that I sold my first photograph at The Black-Eyed Press Gallery!  Let's see.  Oh, I recently signed up for Pinterest here's my profile link http://pinterest.com/nicolelflynn.  That's all for now.
