Small Landscapes


Another perfect day for the Small Landscape. 

 First see the set up above:

Canon EOS M with Live LCD Viewfinder, essential for accurate composition
Fotasy EOS M lens FD and camera adapters
Canon FD 50mm lens
Fotasy Extension tubes 50mm
Macro Slide rail for fine focus
LED light Bank. Additional light from french doors and overhead daylight balanced fluorescent ceiling lamp

ISO set at 100 aperture for the top image 1.8, others estimated 2.8-3.5, Tv 1/40-1/30 sec, AWB
Shot in RAW and edited with Canon Digital Photo Professional

My goal as stated in an earlier post is to focus on a key element of the flower and let the rest go soft with a wife f stop.  Composition, design, abstractness are more important to me for this imagery than sharpness and detail from front to back.

Once you have a DSLR, the rest of the set up is quite inexpensive. Old Nikon, Canon 50mm lenses are really cheap on Ebay.  Plain extension tubes and Fotasy adapters are about 15-25 dollars!

So what do you think? Critique always welcome.

Enjoy, Jeff
