One of the days we were in the smokies my teaching partner, David Akoubian, was going to be using his NIkon system for the day, so I decided to borrow his Canon 5D III for the day.
That's right using a Canon. If you have followed me for any amount of time you know I used to shoot Canon before I switched to the Sony MIrrorless system. So, I'm no stranger to the system. I decided to give it a whirl on some of the macro images of the pink lady slippers.
The conditions were great for shooting macro shots of these flowers on this day. It had rained the evening before and everything was still wet causing the colors to look more saturated. It was also still very overcast, so there was no harsh light falling on any areas, which made for great light.
This is another one of those macro instances where I wanted to totally isolate the subject from the background so I shot wide open at F/2.8.
I shot this using the Canon 5D Mk III and Tamron 90mm Maccro Lens. I always use a tripod when shooting macro and this time was no exception. I had my Sirui W-2004 and G-20 Ballhead combo and it worked great, like always.
Aperture Priority Mode, F/2.8, ISO 100, 1/50th second, 0 Exposure Compensation
