As soon as I get another 50mm F/1.4 that doesn't have AF issues, I will combine it with a macro reversing 55mm ring that I just ordered and be able to achieve 2:1 magnification. Hopefully I can get down into the veins of those leaves! :) And make ants bigger! I guess the only concern then would be lighting....
O.K. another picture, talk about multi tasking, this is Mark the lead broadcaster and director of the web radio station that puts up my sports photos. He is calling the basketball game and taking shots from the press box with his brand new A300 and Tamron 70-200. Wonder where he got that idea? ;)
Tell him to keep his arms firmer against his body. Elbows out is not a good stance.
well it's better then this stance LOL, to bad I cut the top of head off. He has 2 laptops a blackeberry and a clipboard in front of him, I'm surprised he gets any shots at all. His tech guy beside is going to learn how to use the camera.
here is the picture also LOL
Ideally, a photographer should not have to worry about anything other than where to stand and framing his composition. If you are multi-tasking, you are really a "snap-shooter."
I mean, how many times have you had to WAIT for the shot. Totally unplanned and if you were distracted for only a half-a-second, you missed it?
