Macro portrait experiments
I am preparing for my trip to Kenya in a couple of weeks, and I am searching for the optimal lens for in-hand photography. I borrowed Rony's Canon 100 mm f/2.8 macro and tested it this morning while visiting Yosef at Tsor'a. Unfortunately I found it unsuitable for photography of full birds when I'm both holding the bird in one hand and holding the camera in the other - focal length is too long (and/or my arms too short). However it was fun to play with portrait possibilities. I have very little macro experience and it was interesting for me to work with such a tiny depth of field in open apretures. Here are some very amateurish results.

The camera that I use is strictly an amatuer's camera but it has amazing versatility. It's a Fufifilm HS-10. A superzoom with a 24-720mm lens. 10mp, 1080p video, and excellent macro capabilities.ReplyDelete
I'll be heading to Uganda for a month in Feb. I look forward to seeing how the camera performs in the different situations over there.
John, thanks for that. Heard good things about the model you mentioned, but unfortunately I am trapped in the DSLR world. Like your blog!ReplyDelete
